About This Quiz

When Bram Stoker wrote "Dracula," he didn't realize that the monster he created would become bigger than the 400-page novel. There have been numerous versions of the bloodthirsty vampire crawling across pages of books, lurking on television sets, and roaring on the silver screen. 

In literature, aside from Dracula himself, you'll find creepy Kurt Barlow living in Steven King's "Salem's Lot," they angsty Cullen family in the "Twilight" series, and in children's literature, Bunnicula, a rabbit who instead of feasting on blood, feasted on vegetable juice in a book series by the same name. 

In television, Barnabas Collins steamed up the soap circuit in "Dark Shadows," vampires Spike and Angel helped keep Sunnydale trouble free in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and on "Adventure Time," Marceline plays a fantastic bass while eating red things. Of course, with film, many are adaptations of both television shows and books. What we're trying to tell you is that if you have a desire to hang out with a vampire, we're betting we can find the bloodsucker to suit your needs.

Just as there are as many perks to being a vampire, there are an equal amount of drawbacks. While you get to see history get made, you may end up getting frustrated with humanity's inability to learn from previous mistakes. You get to live forever, but you watch your family and friends grow old and eventually pass away. And even though you may hate being outside during the day, feeling the sun against your skin will be a thing of the past.

We already know if you were to become a vampire, you'd be the biggest and baddest bloodsucker around.  But the question you have is when would have been the best time to become a bloodsucker? One way for you to find out is to sink your teeth into this quiz.
