Director Katt Shea has announced the casting of Erik Fellows in the remake of her 1989 vampire classic Dance of the Damned.

Fellows entered the horror genre with Mustang Sally in 2006 and went on to appear in Monster Mountain and Road to Moloch before landing a recurring role in daytime soap Days of Our Lives.

The handsome 29-year-old will be taking on the role originated by Cyril O'Reilly as a vampire who yearns to learn what it's like to live in the daylight and ends up finding companionship with a suicidal stripper he has taken hostage.

We think he definitely has the right look to enter the crypt of the vampire genre, where brooding hunks are already smouldering with dark sex appeal in Twilight, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and Being Human.

When it Comes to Gays, Teen Sex Comedies Are Growing Up

If that’s true, there’s not too much that’s more low-brow than the teen sex comedy, movies which are usually celebrations of male promiscuity and debauchery – often with a vague or bittersweet moral tacked on at the end.
