From what I understand, the Volturi are a pretty serious bunch of vampires. Don’t believe me? Just check out these pictures below. You’re telling me those beady red eyes don’t freak you out? By the way, in case you were wondering, I’m being facetious. While the Volturi have a look that is more consistent with the popular conception of vampires, i.e. pale white with long, draping black clothing, they’re still nowhere near as creepy as my all-time favorite vampire (Nosferatu).
On second thought, they’re not even as creepy as Kiefer Sutherland in Lost Boys. At least they’re more menacing than the doughy-eyed Edward. Yeah, yeah, I know. He’s not supposed to be menacing, but he’s still a vampire, isn’t he? He should look a little frightening, right? I digress.
Anyway, the Volturi are described as “a venerable coven of vampires who weigh and impose the laws of the vampire world.” Oh yeah, and they’re Italian. The leader of the Volturi is Aro, who is played by the very talented actor Michael Sheen – as can be seen in the first picture. Moving downward, we see Dakota Fanning as Jane and Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius. Skip to the next page for pictures of Cameron Bright as Alec and Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus, along with an image scan from People Magazine showing Dakota Fanning and Robert Pattinson.
Hat tip to Dread Central for putting all of these pictures together in one place.
