Now in the age of twilight, Vampires are no longer blood sucking and scary. They are sweet and misunderstood. They are creatures that can be perfect and nice. That is not how they are supposed to be portrayed. They have also created more rules for vampires, no longer can you just drive a wooden steak through a vampires heart, you have to shred them and burn them to kill them forever. Zombies on the other hand have remained constant over the years and as a result have become far more scarier than any vampire could ever be even with the new rules.

Zombies are way scarier then the modern vampires which have arisen in the past 2 or 3 years, thanks in no small part to the Twilight series. Granted even the ‘new’ vampires kill people and drink their blood, they are no longer mysterious denizens of the night, striking without warning or remorse. Modern vampires are brooding teenagers who sparkle in the sunlight. Granted, I find brooding teenagers to be among the most annoying creatures on the planet, but I would never be terrified on one. Oddly enough, as vampires have gotten less scary, the opposite is true with Zombies. With recent films such as 28 Days Later, I Am Legend, etc. zombies are now intelligent and quick eaters of flesh.

Anne Rice almost single handedly destroyed the scariness factor of vampires. Here popular books struck a chord with the lonely and the frightened and made them all long to be these hyper sexual super immortals who glide through the centuries with their secret band of immortal brethren. The twilight angst spewing teenage vampires are a direct result of her work and could not even dream of instilling the type of fear we see in the new and improve zombie media.

Zombies are slow and stupid. Vampires are quick and clever. Easy. Vampires every time. The real advantage that Zombies have over Vampires is they have the numbers. But, since this Argument doesn't specify it's hard to know what's scarier. If it's an army of Zombies versus a Vampire, the army of Zombies is scarier. But, if it's an army of Zombies versus and army of Vampires - the army of quick, clever, multi-special powered Vampires wins every time. If it's an army of Vampires versus one Zombie - fuhgettaboutit.

Vampires are lvl 11 elites, zombies are lvl 2 brutes. Monster Manual 1 says vamps are scarier.

Jack, what about an army of zombies and an army of vampires versus an army of Ditkas?

It depends on whether or not you are a purist. If modern-day storytellers are allowed to change the rules as they see fit, then the point is moot; the scariest monster is the one that is most scarily written at the time. "Sure, vampires might have some wicked barbed tentacles, but zombies are thirty feet tall and shoot chainsaws out of their nipples."

However, if judging by standard timeless folklore, zombies have little to offer. They're creepy and annoying, but easily avoided and dispatched. Vampires, on the other hand... they's gonna gitcha!
