About This Quiz

Vampire infestation is no laughing matter. You’re minding your own business, raising a family (possibly), going to work, coming to a beautiful home, and living the dream. It starts out small: rumors about the shady drifter in town goes missing. Or perhaps a new neighbor arrives and they’re never seen during the day. Soon others go missing, but most of them are vagrants or runaways, people that no one keeps track of. The straw that breaks the camel’s back? When a prominent member of your community (or worse, a child of a prominent member of the town) gets killed. Then there are more than a few eyebrows raised.  

Once a community has realized that there is a single vampire in its midst, it is usually too late. If a vampire is getting messy with their kills, that generally means they’ve become complacent in their environment and they’re not going to leave without a fight. Because they are pretty tough creatures, there are many ways you can eradicate your community of vampires. You could use balloons filled with holy water: this is a great way of killing them without getting too close. You could go with a traditional route and use a stake through the heart: this is an ideal setup for those who don’t want to mess around and wait for results. Finally, you could make a party out of it by rallying all your closest friends and family to go off and slay the beast.  

These are all wonderful options, but which one is best for you? Take the quiz and find out.
