Not that we didn't like the remake with Colin Farrell, but there is something supremely awesome about the 1985 film that chronicles what happens when a teeange boy realizes he's living next door to a vampire. Remember: Don't invite him in. D'oh! Mom already did!
The Anne Rice classic book comes to the big screen in a film that is still causing debate. Some think that Tom Cruise was not perfect for Lestat. Others love him. Either way, for us, this is one fantastic flick that still stands up today.
1931's Dracula showed off the mad acting skills of Bela Lugosi. Watching it, it's easy to see that Lugosi's Dracula is right near the top of the list as one of the more powerful performances ever turned in as the famous fanged film spook.
What a horrifying concept found in 30 Days of Night. Vampires running loose in Alaska. Two things make that scary. One, we all know that vampires can't walk among us in the light. Two, the story takes place in Alaska where the sun doesn't "come out" for 30 days. Yeah, have fun with that.
George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino are a pair of brothers on the run who find shelter in a Mexican brothel. There's one problem: All the brothel's workers are vampires! Such a wild idea, both in theory and how it's executed by Robert Rodriguez.
This little known late '80s flick is one of those hidden gems that escaped the masses. It features the story of a young man driven by love (or lust?) who follows a girl he's into and her family. There's just one thing: They're vampires. Hey, you can put up with a lot of quirks when you're in love.
There's no way we make a list of great vamp movies and not have the '80s classic Lost Boys on here. The idea of vampires causing horror in Santa Cruz is just awesome. Plus, Kiefer Sutherland turns in one of his best performances and that is saying something about the future Jack Bauer.
Great cast! Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe star In a film that takes place in the year 2019. A plague has turned almost everyone on the planet into vampires. Given that fact, what will they do for food when there are no humans left? Now that... that is truly scary!
Kristy Swanson stars as the titlular vampire killer in this comedy-horror flick that also featured Donald Sutherland and a surprisingly effective Luke Perry. If you love the TV show, then you owe everything to this film.
