The legend of the vampire is one that continues to frighten and fascinate people worldwide.
The idea of an undead night-stalker that feeds on human blood has been around for centuries and endures to this day. And it has taken on many forms, adapting for new generations and successfully making the jump into books, film, and television. And it's safe to say that as far as the height of vampire fandom goes, nothing compares to that of The Twilight Saga and The Vampire Diaries.
Both of these vampire sagas have loyal fans and boast a lot of similarities. Each one is centred around the life of a teenage girl who falls for a vampire and the love triangle that follows. The two even premiered around the same time.
The Vampire Diaries started airing on The CW in 2009 and the first movie in the Twilight saga was released in 2008. And on top of that, these two pop-culture favourites are also based on book series of the same name. With all these similarities, comparisons are bound to arise.
