Lucienne Diver's Vampire Quiz: Answers!

Vampire Pictures, Images and Photos

Lucienne Diver, author of Vamped, hosted a Vampire contest for my May Party and I'm a bit behind, but the winner has been emailed (it's coming from the shooting star email so go and check if you entered!) However, people wanted to know how many questions they got right, so I figured I'd repost the quiz with the answers at the bottom so you can see how you did, or simply "take" the quiz now for fun!

Aw, I had my fingers and toes crossed on this one. Oh well, at least i got them all right. ^_^ Congrats to the winner! I hope he/she is provided with many hours of laughter via Goth the game.

Oh, this might just be a typo but I noticed you put the wrong name down for question 9. His name is Rutger Hauer, not Howard.
