Vampires and Sunlight Picture

Before you start flaming the hell out of me, just remember this. The vampires you know now, the ones that burn in the sunlight, blah, blah, blah, would not be here if it wasn't for the 1922 movie Nosferatu. That is the first movie to have vampires burning in sunlight.

That's right folks. Even Bram Stoker's Dracula has scenes where the Count has been seen outside, DURING THE DAY. Not only the book, but also the 1992 film (watch and read, and you'll know this). Instead of killing him, the sunlight simply trapped him in whatever form he was in until he got out of the sun. And, originally, vampires were not only unharmed by the sun, they looked like REGULAR people. That's right, they didn't sparkle nor burn. They only became more powerful at night (got all their powers and stuff like that)

So, before you attack people for having vampires in the daylight, then remember that the 'burning in the sunlight' thing has no basis in the actual folk lore. So...yeah, Stephanie Meyer may have over done it with the sparkles and deathly pale shit, but she wasn't exactly wrong about the vampires not being hurt by sunlight. If Edward looked more human in the daylight, I might not have looked down on the movie so much...or the books for that matter.
