Wait. Del Toro? Cuaron? So when does Inarritu get his TV series?

Then he probably wouldn't be saying traditional, as none of those are that old. Or to rephrase: Not exclusively them. If we're talking about a tradition of sexy tuxedo vampires, then it's one that would include more contemporary vampires like those and older examples like Lugosi or say Lee.

And come to think of it, the Del Toro vampires are more like the Borg than zombies, with the whole stinger idea.
As far as vampires go it does make one think of the vampires of I Am Legend.
