Supernatural bad boys we can't help but love

supernatural bad boys

This is a guest post by Amanda Jones.

I don’t know about you, but there’s something I can’t help but love about the supernatural bad boys of the celluloid world. I’m not quite sure what it is – the cockiness, the alpha possessiveness, or the complete disregard of what anyone thinks of them. They all seem to share a similar air of “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!” Call me crazy, but in a world where we’re bombarded with images of what we “should” be, I find it alluring. Whether it’s True Blood’s Eric Northman, Buffy’s Spike, or Klaus from The Vampire Diaries – there’s something appealing about their belief in their own infallibility (justified or not!). I guess that would be a side effect of being immortal…who really cares what anybody thinks – trends, people, and behaviors will change and die over time, and you’re going to see a lot of it if you’ll be living forever!

There are a lot of downsides to these killer hotties – most are portrayed as tortured souls who have hardened over time, but for me watching these characters is like getting immersed in a grown-up fairy tale. Maybe it’s the periodic hook we get when we see the softer side of these hard as nails characters. A little escapism never killed anyone ;-)

It’s absolutely insane to actually WANT one of these book/movie boyfriends in real life – I don’t actually want to BE dinner when I go on a dinner date. Despite all that and in honor of the many enjoyable hours I’ve spent vegging out getting immersed in their film and TV worlds, here’s a list of MY top 10 favorite supernatural bad boys!

1) Eric Northman – True Blood
