Robert Pattinson has long been king of the vampires but suddenly he has competition from Ireland's Colin Farrell.

With vampire movies more popular than ever, Farrell is about to challenge Pattinson's popularity as vampire hunk in chief with his role on Fright Night' which will be released in August.

In the movie Farrell plays a secret vampire whose neighbor suspects he is responsible for several killings.

So how will 'Fright Night do against the Pattinson juggernaut and Twilight's latest saga?
Time will well tell but it is time to let the battle begin between the two hunks for the title of hottest vampire.

My money is on the smouldering Farrell who has that other world look that turns so many females on.

Judging by age, Colin (36), definitely has the more rugged look and certainly has more life experience under that leather belt of his.

Meanwhile 26-year-old Pattinson is still a pup in comparison but has managed to build a stellar career for himself, in his brief few years of adulthood thus far.

If you prefer the hell-raisers then Farrell is your man. The self proclaimed bad-boy is no stranger to a rock and roll lifestyle where as Pattinson seems to have maintained his squeaky clean school boy image from his Harry Potter days.

Acting wise, the pair both have endless amounts of talent. Farrell, picking up a Golden Globe for his role in “In Bruge” and Pattinson receiving countless awards for his portrayal of the world’s favorite vampire, Edward Cullen. However considering his time done in Tinsel Town, for now Dublin born Farrell may have the edge in this department.

Style wise, both men are equally skilled in rocking their individual tailored looks.

Both men seem to have a way with the ladies, each of them safe in the knowledge that hundreds of maidens are readily on hand if they are ever in need of some female company.
