Brad Pitt or Robert Pattinson? Let the battle begin...

What gives vampires such irresistible sex appeal?

So who are the sexiest on-screen bloodsuckers of all? We received over two million votes in our polls. Check out the results below.

    Think vampires are seriously sexy? You're not alone. We received almost two million votes in our polls asking users to pick the sexiest male and female bloodsuckers from a pool of 16 each, and here we unveil the top 10. While some "older" vamps didn't make the cut (sorry, Frank Langella fans), the young stars of 'Twilight' certainly did. (Click here for female vamps.)

    10. Kiefer Sutherland, 'Lost Boys' (1987)
    Who He Played: David
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Jack Bauer wasn't a glint in Kiefer's eye when he made his rep playing bad boys like David, who gets his kicks riding motorcycles and recruiting teens into his awesome vampire gang. To be fair, what else is there to do in Santa Clara, anyway?

    9. Dominic Purcell, 'Blade: Trinity' (2004)
    Who He Played: Drake
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Awoken after a century's sleep, "Drake" (aka Dracula) may have some nasty morning breath, but he's still a million times better-looking (and lest we forget buffer) than Bela Lugosi. Bless the new millennial vampire king.

    8. Tom Cruise, 'Interview With the Vampire' (1994)
    Who He Played: Lestat de Lioncourt
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Cruise donned the fangs and ponytail to ditch his boy-next-door charm for the ruthless evil-doing of a monster. Blond, pale and sucking Brad Pitt's blood -- now that's what we call risky business!

    7. Gerard Butler, 'Dracula 2000' (2000)
    Who He Played: Dracula
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Hmm, last time we checked, Dracula's supposed to be pale and thin. And Gerard Butler, thank the demons, is ... um, the opposite of that. The movie was a loser, but Gerry wins our vote as hottest Dracula ever. Sorry, Bela Lugosi.

    6. Jason Patric, 'Lost Boys' (1987)
    Who He Played: Michael Emerson
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Sure, at one point he attempts to feed on his younger brother (Corey Haim), but Michael ultimately proves himself the noblest of Big Bros. And paired with Star (Jami Gertz), the two make one fully sexy couple of half-vampires.

    5. Stuart Townsend, 'Queen of the Damned' (2002)
    Who He Played: Lestat de Lioncourt
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Before Charlize Theron made Stuart Townsend her arm candy forever, Queen Akasha (Aaliyah) wanted him for her King and we can't say we blame her. As a modern-day rock god, he is by far the sexiest Lestat on film.

    Warner Bros.

    4. Antonio Banderas, 'Interview With the Vampire' (1994)
    Who He Played: Armand
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Even his pale, sun-starved complexion and long, flowing locks couldn't hide Banderas' brooding international hotness. Not just another vampire -- a European vampire! -- Banderas proved frightening with a pair of fangs.

    3. Cam Gigandet, 'Twilight' (2008)
    Who He Plays: James
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: You can have your sensitive vampires like Edward; some of us like 'em eeevil. Sure, James hunts humans for sport, but if you're having the blood drained from your body, there are worse things than looking at THAT face while you die.

    Summit Entertainment

    2. Brad Pitt, 'Interview With the Vampire' (1994)
    Who He Played: Louis de Pointe du Lac
    Why He Gets Our Blood Flowing: Being a vampire isn't all fun and games: When Louis bites into a young girl's neck or tries to murder his mentor, he feels really bad about it. Aww, vampires are cute when they're conflicted. And when they look like Brad Pitt.
