I wish there were more vampire movies to choose from, but there aren’t as many vampire movies out there as you might think. I know the vampire genre isn’t dead, based on the popularity of shows like The Vampire Diaries and True Blood, so here’s hoping more movies like these ones come out soon!
- Interview With The Vampire
I loved this movie! I loved this book! Why oh why didn’t they make movies out of the rest of the series? This movie is my version of perfection.
- The Lost Boys
Classic, man! What’s not to like about this one? In fact, I feel like going and watching it again, now that I’m thinking about it.
I really enjoyed this whole series of movies. By the way, I also really liked the Blade TV series, which was cancelled before they resolved any of the plot lines. Argh!
This movie garnered so-so reviews, but I really liked it (and not just because I’m in love with Ethan Hawke). I’ll admit I laughed out loud in places that probably weren’t supposed to be funny, but that’s just my weird sense of humour.
- Fright Night (1985)
This movie was so cheesy, and I ate it right up. My friend and I were convinced our vice-principal was a vampire because he looked just like the vamp in this film. This movie is also responsible for sparking my infatuation with all things vampire.
The Twilight book series and movies set off a whole new phase of interest in vampires, which was great news for me. I’d never stopped loving vampire mythology, so I eagerly welcomed the rash of vampire books and movies that followed.
- Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
I had no idea what to expect from this movie, and frankly the title makes it sound a bit . . . dumb. I was pleasantly surprised to discover it was quite original, full of action, and highly entertaining.
Plenty of vampire action in this series, and a female lead that kicks ass. The plots are not terribly memorable, but as long as they keep churning out movies in this franchise, I’m sure I’ll keep watching them.
- Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)
I thought the book was a lot better than this movie adaptation, and I wasn’t too hot on the cast (except for Gary Oldman, who was awesome). Still . . . it’s Dracula after all, and of course I liked it!
- Fright Night (2011)
This was completely different from the 1985 version of Fright Night, but like its predecessor, it was also a silly, yet entertaining romp with vampires. Colin Farrell was a riot!
