Trivia: Which film established the trope of vampires burning in the sun?
Interview with a Vampire
Son of Dracula
Correct Answer: Nosferatu
So why is this answer correct? : The black and white film “Nosferatu” caused a stir upon its release for being a blatant rip-off of Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula.” Stoker’s novel hints at the vampire being weakened by the sun, but in order to make this more dramatic on film, the creators of “Nosferatu” showed him disintegrating in direct sunlight, thus establishing a trope that continues to this day.
