The idea of vampires and werewolves has fascinated mankind for many centuries. Both of these mythical creatures have been created and recreated in folklore, books, movies and TV shows and become part of the fabric of our mythical society. The best example of this would be the popular Twilight series of books and movies which contain both vampires and werewolves.
