The new, long-delayed Sony/Marvel movie Morbius arrives in a crowded market for comic-book movies, but joins an even longer list of vampire movies produced over the years. From countless Draculas to various vampire-centric franchises, there’s a long history of bloodsuckers on screen and the second of this week’s three quiz rounds focuses on their undead exploits, horrific or otherwise.

Once you’ve finished all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Now, without further ado, let’s sink our teeth into this week’s selection of movie trivia…
