It seems our country's 16th president has had it up to here with this whole vampire craze. This weekend's release of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" certainly seems to put bloodsuckers (at least 19th century ones) in a pretty bad place.
Of course, this wasn't always the case. Vampires are still quite popular when they're the protagonists, rather than "the hunted."
The fifth "Twilight" film will bow in November. (Twi-hards are expected to make their long goodbye in big numbers three weeks from now at San Diego Comic-Con). And HBO continues to bring in big ratings with "True Blood."
In recent years, you, our loyal CNN audience, have had the chance to ask some of these vampires your most pressing questions. So here's a fond look back at a few of the most memorable vampire-themed iReport interviews.
'Jacob' talks about filming shirtless
Relive those heady days when "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" was released and Taylor Lautner talked about being shirtless.
Why Greene likes 'Twilight's' Alice
Edward shouldn't get all the glory. Actress Ashley Greene answered questions about playing his sister, Alice.
Fun, fantastical world of 'True Blood'
"Magic Mike's" Joe Manganiello is better known as werewolf Alcide (to be sure, Pam the vamp is here too).
Vampire Weekend: Steal our music
Okay, so there are no actual vampires in the band Vampire Weekend. But their name was at the right time with the trend.
