Between "Twilight" on the big screen, and "True Blood" and "Vampire Diaries" on the cable dial, among countless other books, graphic novels and more, if you're a fan of bloodsuckers, there's likely a flavor out there for you. And with countless other projects in the pipeline from Will Smith's directorial debut "The Redemption Of Cain" to Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive," there are still more versions of this undead character on the way. But let's just hope they are more involving and creative than Neil Jordan's "Byzantium." The director's second bite into the genre following "Interview With The Vampire" is disappointingly bloodless (figuratively) and fangless (literally).

Sundance has the indie cred. Cannes gets the big names in world cinema, and the best parties. Venice has the best location, and often the most interesting line-up. Berlin contains the hidden gems. SXSW is the up-and-comer. Telluride has the mountain air. But increasingly, the Toronto International Film Festival is becoming the most important in the film industry.

In this day and age, where you can't throw a rock in a movie theater without hitting a bloodsucker-themed movie, it takes a lot to get us to register even a flicker of interest in a vampire film. But it helps a lot if you have Neil Jordan at the helm, a man who way back to "The Company Of Wolves" has proven to be a master of the macabre, and a director capable of bringing plenty of thematic richness to genre fare.

Well, this is certainly an eye-opening first look (courtesy of the Daily Mail). Photos have leaked of the lovely Gemma Arterton from the set of Neil Jordan's cool-sounding vampire movie "Byzantium." The movie stars Arterton as a woman who, after she's transformed into a vampire, does the same to her daughter (Saoirse Ronan) and the two hit the road, posing as sisters, and presumably getting into a series of bloody misadventures. The cast also includes Sam Riley, Caleb Landry Jones, Bradley Jones, and Daniel Mays. But why are we even typing anything when you're just looking at those photos? Hello? Anyone?
