Vampire movies that don't suck

by David Horiuchi on November 30, 2008

Twilight is killing at the box office, and True Blood just ended its first season on HBO: it's never been cooler to be among the undead. What are your favorite vampire movies and TV shows? Here are a few others that spring to mind. --David

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Joss Whedon's seven-season series that had Sarah Michelle Gellar battling fearsome enemies and teen angst at the same time.
  • Dark Shadows: Long-running series (it started in the '60s) starring Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins.
  • Dracula (1931): iconic horror film starring Bela Lugosi as the title character.
  • Bram Stoker's Dracula: Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 version is a little uneven (and has Keanu Reeves in it), but it' s a compelling watch.
  • Moonlight: CBS's series starring Alex O'Laughlin made its mark on fans during its single-season run.
  • The Lost Boys: 1987 modern classic starring a young Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric. Anyone see the recent sequel, Lost Boys: The Tribe?
  • Interview with the Vampire: 1994 adaptation of Anne Rice's popular novel starring Tom Cruise and with a pre-teen Kirsten Dunst turning heads as Claudia.
  • Nosferatu: F.W. Murnau's silent classic.

I liked queen of the damned.

By the way I'm into read vampire books and just finished dead and gone the 9th book from Charlaine Harris from the Sookie Stackhouse novel and the true blood series it's good but sometimes get stuck in the sex and don't follow the book
