Aaliyah in Queen of the Damned

Vampires are known for their sickly, ghostly-white palor, but there is considerable diversification among creatures of the night. In honor of the final installment of Twilight, we take a look at some of the more colorful vamps in Hollywood.

In this adaptation of Anne Rice's eponymous novel, Aaliyah plays the rock 'n' roll vampire Akasha. The film, released six months after Aaliyah's death, may not have been a critical smash but audiences loved it.
