The final massive TV-vampire hit was HBO’s “True Blood,” which ended 5 years in the past. However, proving which you can’t hold a very good vampire down, there are bloodsuckers rising as soon as once more in two new exhibits out this month.
“The Passage,” on Fox, treats its vampire-like creatures like a virus, with a bunch of contaminated ex-cons (and one unfortunate former scientist). Sundance collection “A Discovery of Witches” skews extra conventional with one predominant tall, darkish and good-looking vamp.
Right here’s the way it shakes out.
