Vampire films


Recommended Posts

Might be obvious suggestions but off the top of my head...

Nosferatu - the original and Werner Herzog's take. Both brilliant.

Also, anything with Peter Cushing and/or Christopher Lee in it. Proper hammy acting at it's finest. A Hammer Horror boxset is a great investment. They are always cheap too.

The Francis Ford Coppola Dracula film isn't as bad as everyone makes out too.

Not the best film but for any Christopher Walken fan The Addiction is a must.

And last but by no means least... Blacula (yes, with a black Dracula)

I think you mean 30 Days of SHITE. That film sucked.

It was hilariously bad. I liked how the little girl vampire sounded like an old woman pretending to be a child and also delivered the terrible line, "I'm done playing with this one. You want to play with me now?" It didn't sound menacing in the slightest, just cringe-worthy.

All the ones I can think of have already been said, so I'll just second Nosferatu and Let The Right One In.

I've not seen the original Blood: The Last Vampire, but did see the one that was released in June. It's worth a watch, but it does feel like there are chunks of the story missing...

I forgot about Love At First Bite! :laughing:

Recently re-watched Vamp but I thought it had dated badly, very camp but still enjoyable in a cheesy mad way.

I have seen Twilight as well, it was ok and the vamps in it were pretty mega insanely powerful which was an interesting touch, none of this Hammer Horror woosy vamp stuff.

I did enjoy 30 Days Of Night, don't know how close it was to the original graphic novel but I liked it and I like Melissa George as an actress (a long way from Home & Away!).

Quite liked the Moonlight series about the vampire detective (again canned after one series) and I am getting into True Blood. The old Brit series Ultraviolet was good, would have liked to have seen more of that.
