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.
