This Flyby Five falls on a World Blood Donor Day, so it seemed only natural that we take a minute to look at some of our favorite fanged creatures of the screens in these fun vampire flicks.
Welcome to Flyby Five, where we abandon all sense of seriousness and do silly lists about whatever pops into our heads. This segment will be posted every Wednesday we feel like posting it. This is not a serious list, nor is it a “Top 5” list. And there is every possible chance that some of these lists or the language in these lists may not be PG-13 friendly. You have been warned. -L&G

Even though this post is meant to be light-hearted, World Blood Donor Day is actually a cool thing. Giving blood is so important, and if you are capable of doing so, you totally should. Even though almost 40 percent of the population in America can donate blood, only 10 percent or so actually do so. And when you look at the numbers, the need is so great.
