Vampires are not dead. They are undead. ‘Iw tlhutlhnISbogh HeghHa’wI’pu’ chaH.

And, it’s not altogether certain that they need to breathe. I mean, what would happen if they couldn’t breathe? Would they die? If killing them were that easy, why bother with sunlight, or a stake to the heart? Just gas the suckers.

Have you ever seen a vampire movie where the solution was to gas them?
