The Cannes Film Festival is known for many things -- red carpets, star-studded galas, critics booing movies -- but this year it's become known for something new: vampires.

That's because two new high-profile vampire films, from famed directors Neil Jordan and Jim Jarmusch, were announced at this year's festival. And considering these are just the latest entries in the hottest film craze of the decade, we thought now would be a good time to take look at those projects as well as eight other upcoming vampire movies.

Vampires are immortal, after all -- which means this is one craze that could be with us forever.

'Fright Night'

Attached: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, David Tennant

Status: The original "Fright Night," which came out back in 1985, is something of a classic in the horror genre. So why remake the story of a teen who discovers his neighbor is a vampire? »
