Top Ten Vampire Movies


The Top Ten

1 Interview with the Vampire

I'm Sorry But Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise Vs Robert Pattinson! Film With Meaning vs Film based on a girl who is clumsy dumb and boring. Ha! It's A no Brainer! Interview With The Vampire All The Way!

Twilight is an embarrassment to the genre with a very dull, unattractive leading lady and a horridly cliche storyline. The only thing that sets it apart from other vampire films is the "pussification" (yes, I said it) of a creature that should be considered seductive yet notably dangerous nonetheless.

Interview with the vampire has more substance to it, is more complex than some teenage girl meeting some awkward boy who just so happens to be "unusual". The two are not even in the same league in terms of quality of story to be compared. Twilight is new "pop" age trash geared toward hormonal teens, whereas Interview with the Vampire is for a more mature audience.

this is the best vampire movie ever
i have a friend and she loves twilight very much I told her about interview with the vampire now she hates twilight

Top notch best ever to set the screen Brad Pitt Tom Cruise fantastic with the rest of the cast in top form love this movie to death.

2 Twilight

Are you kidding? TWILIGHT! Having to see that movie was the worst 3 hours of my life!

Anytime I go to the theater to watch a new movie I always watch twilight before hand so the new movie I watch won't seem so bad. Thank you Twilight.

Twilight was the movie that ruined the vampire movie genre... Dracula should rise from his coffin and kill the whole crew of Twilight

Best love story

3 30 Days of Night

BEST and scariest EVER! Should b #1... Most beautiful and realistic depiction of what a vampire would b like if real. Not all foo foo and romantic... Blah! They r supposed to b brutal killers not sparkly or change into bat. This movie scares me and I love it... Kudos for Danny Houston, very sexy yet super scary.

Best vampire movie EVER! The vampires do not look like sparkling constipated models, nor like some gross wrinkly fetus. Another great vampire movie is Daybreakers.

Vampires at their most vile and bloodthirsty nature? You don't see vampire movies that depict vampires as they really are? Its always sugar coated. But the upcoming Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter movie will follow this trend! And what a welcome sight? Vampires are disease just like AIDS OR CANCER which has to be iradicated and wiped out, before it infects another person. They are contagion.

Great film

4 Underworld

Underworld is the best movie! I've seen the whole series so much that I lost count... And who the hell sparkles? Fairies that's who! Real vampires burn. This movie is better than Twilight!

This is called a perfect vampire movie, action, thrill, story... all, that a movie needs..

Kristen Stewart CANNOT act. She is just her awkward self. Sure she is nice to look at but Kate Beckinsale... Enough said.

Best vamp movie ever

5 The Lost Boys

This should be number one and twilight is good if your into the whole love story films but it's just a different way of showing a vampire But the lost boys is amazing it's like a cross between the type of vampires in buffy and true blood :D xXx - kassybaby133

Heck yeah. I remember watching this and I fell in love with all of the boys. - NiallersNandosXOXO

This should be number one only this one because number 2 and 3 are just not the same do not judge this movie by its sequels watch this movie and you'll fall in love.

Lost boys is my favorite vampire movie

6 Bram Stoker's Dracula

Moving, romantic, great music and powerful performances makes this movie tops for me. I think it won best picture for Costume design too. I still quote lines from it. "Your friend, D." D meaning dracula. :-) The Scene with the absinth with the music is magical to me. Almost other worldly. Thanks so much for this film.

If you value any other vampire film or T.V. series over this, you clearly don't know vampire lore at all. Dracula is the benchmark of what vampire lore is. Bram Stoker, the mastermind behind the creation of the Dracula lore (and hell, in my opinion, the writer of vampire lore itself), puts the final nail in the coffin as far as what vampires are really about. Something that this film does not do is pander to what I call "candy vampires." This film focuses on the nitty gritty of vampire lore and does so exquisitely. I like the harshness of it, the brutality, the absolute heart wrenching emotions delivered through it. I have to say that Gary Oldman's portrayal of Dracula was spot on. I highly recommend this film to vampire lore aficionados. - chemical

Gary Oldman's performance is classic.

In my top three favorite vampire movies. The overall storyline is tragic love; however, this movie is scary and has an all-star cast! The gore is there, but is not hokey nor overdone. Give this movie a shot. You won't be disappointed.

7 Blade

Probably one of the best superhero movies of all time, yes it's a superhero movie as well as a vampire movie, but its definitely better than twilight, anybody who thinks that twilight was good is somebody that is wasting our precious oxygen.

An underrated Super-Hero movie, a rare vampire film that is actually entertaining to watch. Now if only we could get a Blade/Twilight Crossover?

This is a must, one of the best vamp movies ever!

8 Fright Night

Twilight... I know it's good but I think this should be #1! It was an amazing movie with great actors in it. Especially Chris Sarandon! I would go buy it when you have a chance. This movie is really awesome! (: And by Fright Night, I mean the 1985 one.

This movies also have some good vampires in it. One of them if remember was the main villain in the movie and he also had a very famous scene.

This is number one in my opinion, still watch it to this day!

Best movie ever

9 Dracula (with Bela Lugosi)

This is the master of all vampire's movie! The Lost boy is in the 10 top and Dracula? Don't make me cry (of blood tears of curse)

I first wanted to vote for Interview... But just because I'm a total fan of Rice!

This should be in the top 5... Yes it may seem a bit campy for today, but it is another that started it all. I still watch it every year in October, and I still love it!

Best movie about vampires anywhere. Bela Lugosi is a legend! Check this film out.

Ever since watch this I can't stop watching it! It's SO CREEPY DAMN GOOD! he's THE MASTER OF ALL VAMPIRES

10 Near Dark

yeah its really underrated started off slow friends saying what the hell is this a romantic movie but later got really good especially the bar scene loved Bill Paxton in this movie. Had the romance in it but all Vampire movies have that a great modern story on Vampires - sUx2Bu

This is my favorite vampire movie of ALL time. The chemistry between the main three vampires (Jesse, Diamondback, Severn) is strong, partly because the actors had worked together less than a year before in a little film called Aliens. (And no, I would never mistake her for a man.) Because of studio bankruptcy and no press budget, Near Dark was overshadowed by it's year mate, The Lost Boys, so not as many knew about it or saw it. But it is well worth watching. It even makes the ending worth it.

Atmospheric, Sexy, AND Extremely Underrated!

Still a better love story than twilight.

11 Queen of the Damned

Queen of the Damned was a great Vampire movie because it had Aaliyah cast as Akasha in the movie that's what made the movie sexy and hot it was Queen Akasha played by Aaliyah, not only was Aaliyah beautiful and gorgeous in the movie but she also wad really scary and creepy and she was very convincing as scary in the movie and beautiful at the same time this role was made for Aaliyah she was born to do this role and the costume she wore in the movie really made her embodied the character in the movie she was a sexy Beast in the movie and Vamp.

Amazing vampire movie if you like a twist between vampires and love And the guy who play lestat is sexy! The music in this movie is amazing, enough said.

Queen of the Damned best vampire movie ever Aaliyah embodied the vamp Queen Akasha so good channel T.V. guides ranked Aaliyah number 18 on T.V. guide's sexiest beasts of All time she got into this character great and she was beautiful the Green eyes were so beautiful on her face Wow and let's not forget Aaliyah Dance moves she is one of the best Dancers of All time love you Aaliyah.

I hope they do more vampire chronicles sequel in the future?
Let Jesse get pregnant with lestat baby.

13 From Dusk Till Dawn

Come on! Started as action then went all out vampire! George Clooney, Tarantino?! Come on! Plus I ended up with a girl crush on salma

This is the first vampire movie I've seen, back when I was so young. From then, I loved vampire action movies

You ended with a girl crush on Salma? Before or after she turned into a vampire?

The Best. Pulp Fiction with vampires... Awesome!

14 Nosferatu

The first time I watched this I hated it, because of the nonstop pounding music, just too much. I know silent films had music throughout, but this was way over the top, pure distraction, and nausea inducing. Well, I watched it a second time, only this time I did so with the volume off... Let me tell you it was fantastic, especially for 1922. Without the music I was able to concentrate, and realize how good this was. The vampire scared the poop out of me!

To be completely honest, I only knew who Nosferatu was because of the SpongeBob episode called "The night shift". I did my research and watched the movie. It is very is from the 1920s so I didn't much out of it... But I highly recommend it. Definitely shows what a vampire is suppose to be like.

The absolute best representation of what a vampire, and a vampire movie, is supposed to be. Twilight is a love story not a vampire movie. Trust me there's a differance. Besides, the people in twilight aren't vampires anyway... - zadrabidu

I cannot praise this film enough, ultimate gothic masterpiece still scares and makes me cry where all the above just make me laugh

15 Let The Right One In

Twilight? TWILIGHT? Really. This movie is amazing, and I couldn't sit through 5 minutes of Twilight. I swear people these days don't know what a good movie is if it hit them in the face. - InsertNameHere

In my opinion the best vampire movie made, by quite a long way too. If you want blood guts or glamour don't bother with this one. You get atmosphere and good acting instead. This should be at the top with interview and lost boys.

Definitely my favourite vampire movie. I have read the twilight books and watched the movies but this is far better.

Should be #1. Byzantium should be #2.

16 John Carpenter's Vampires

A modern vampire film done with a western motif. Strong performances by cast including James Woods and Alec Baldwin. Plenty of action, yet including many horror and suspense elements as well. Soundtrack is very well done.

We're talking about the movie here that came out before the series!

I love this show so awesome show that women have power too!

The best Dracula movie hands down. Christopher Lee is the best Dracula ever and Peter Cushing shines as Van Helsing. 10/10.
