Blood-sucking came from the Slavic people, around the 9th century.  Garlic comes from Romania, where it was placed on windows or rubbed on cows (I can't talk, we tip them over here).  The first vampire to die due to sunlight is Count Orlock, from the movie Nosferatu (1922) (incidentaly, one of the most accurate portrayals of the vampire of legend), and the reason for such an unusual death is due to director F.W. Murnau's desire to take full advantage of the exciting new medium known as film.

Vlad the Impaler never actually did anything vampire-like, although he did have a fairly direct method of posting warning signs on his property, although it is alleged that he was the basis for Bram Stoker's memorable character.  I would honestly say that the modern-day, Blade-esque vampire began in the 1970's with the publication of Anne Rice’s novel Interview with the Vampire in 1976.

1-a corpse supposed, in European folklore, to leave its grave at night to drink the blood of the living by biting their necks with long pointed canine teeth.

2- a small bat that feeds on the blood of mammals or birds using its two sharp incisor teeth and anticoagulant saliva, found mainly in tropical America.

The blood-sucking bats could be discribed as vampires too... If they have two sharp incisor teeth...and the salvia...

Only in America do they think that vampires do not exist, the rest of the world takes them as fact. Americans and their many skeptical notions.
