Top 70 Vampire Movies of All Time

Vampire Movies

Vampires are mythological creatures, famous in folklore for their need to feed on the blood of animals and humans for survival. While regarded as part of the horror genre, vampire films do have their own characteristic style, as many motifs have spawned from the famous 1897 Bram Stoker novel Dracula. But Dracula himself originated from Southeast Europe and was not the first vampire myth; cultures such as the Mesopotamians, Hebrews and Romans have long had tales of demons and spirits that would drink blood and feast on flesh.

Filmmakers have interpreted the cult of vampires in many ways, some emphasizing the primal and ancient instinct of the ungodly, while others using vampires as tools to introduce generic horror and gore. For example, vampires have been portrayed as rock stars in Queen of the Damned, next door neighbors in Fright Night, space creatures in Lifeforce, melancholic aristocrats in Interview with the Vampire and criminals in From Dusk Till Dawn.

The female vampire has been depicted in many forms as well; as beautiful lesbians in Vampyros Lesbos and sexual predators in movies like Vampyres and Rabid. Eroticism and seduction are emphasized for the female vampire, whose desire for blood is inextricably intertwined with her lust for pleasure.

Vampire comedy is a sub-genre which tries to make light of the vampire myth, by appealing to the popular culture. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Blacula and Jesus Chris Vampire Hunter are some films which appear in this popcorn niche. Most of these films are dismissed as B-grade trash, although some gradually develop a minor cult following.

Ranking the List

Following our previous feature on the Top 50 Dystopian Movies of all Time, we thought it would be fun to do a list of the Top 70 Vampire films and rank them according to the average IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes scores for each movie.

As you will probably know, the Internet Movie Database allows movie fans and registered users to rate each movie from 1 to 10 and the final score is said to reflect the general audience’s view of the movie. In contrast, Rotten Tomatoes rates their movies by collecting and tabulating the reviews given by professional film critics. We’ve taken both ratings, added them together and found an average score for each film.

This list may not be definitive but hopefully it will introduce everyone to some of the great vampire movies out there. Do leave a comment if you’ve enjoyed or really hated any of the films on the list. Feel free to subscribe to our website in order to receive updates on future articles.

This version of Dracula is closely based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel of the same name. A young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of eastern Europe. He is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker’s betrothed, Mina Murray.

8. Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary (2002)

Dracula Pages from a Virgin's Diary

A ballet rendition of Bram Stoker’s gothic novel Dracula, presented in a style reminiscent of the silent expressionistic cinema of the early 20th Century. This work employs the subtle and sometimes bold use of color to emphasize its themes, but mainly is presented in black-and-white, or tinted in monochrome. No spoken dialogue can be heard, and the story of a sinister but intriguing immigrant who preys upon young English women unfolds through dance, pantomime and subtitles. (Directed by Guy Maddin)

IMDB: 7.0 | Rotten Tomatoes: 7.4 | Average: 7.2

7. Near Dark (1987)

5. Martin (1977)


George Romero does for vampires what he has already done to zombies – an intense and realistic treatment that follows the exploits of Martin, who claims to be 84 years old, and who certainly drinks human blood. The boy arrives in Pittsburg to stay with his uncle, who promises to save Martin’s soul and destroy him once he is finished, but Martin’s loneliness finds other means of release. (Directed by George A. Romero)

IMDB: 7.5 | Rotten Tomatoes: 7.5 | Average: 7.5

3. Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)

Nosferatu the Vampyre

Stark, symbolic cinematography and intensely stylized performances create what Werner Herzog refers to as a different plane of reality, injecting the age-old tale of Count Dracula with a modern sense of mysticism, desire, and wonder. Frequent Herzog collaborator Klaus Kinski portrays the Dracula character with a silent intensity, tingeing the vampire’s inhuman monstrosity with a deep sense of pathos and longing. Completing a stellar international cast are Bruno Ganz and French film star Isabelle Adjani, both giving subtle yet compelling performances as the formerly happy couple who fall prey to Dracula’s lust for life and love. (Directed by Werner Herzog)

IMDB: 7.4 | Rotten Tomatoes: 7.7 | Average: 7.55

2. Dracula (1931)

Dracula (1931)

After a harrowing ride through the Carpathian mountains in eastern Europe, Renfield enters castle Dracula to finalize the transferral of Carfax Abbey in London to Count Dracula, who is in actuality a vampire. Renfield is drugged by the eerily hypnotic count, and turned into one of his thralls, protecting him during his sea voyage to London.

After sucking the blood and turning the young Lucy Weston into a vampire, Dracula turns his attention to her friend Mina Seward, daughter of Dr. Seward who then calls in a specialist, Dr. Van Helsing, to diagnose the sudden deterioration of Mina’s health. Van Helsing, realizing that Dracula is indeed a vampire, tries to prepare Mina’s fiance, John Harker, and Dr. Seward for what is to come and the measures that will have to be taken to prevent Mina from becoming one of the undead. (Directed by Tod Browning)

IMDB: 7.7 | Rotten Tomatoes: 7.8 | Average:7.75

1. Nosferatu (1922)


F.W. Murnau’s German silent classic is the original and some say scariest Dracula adaptation, taking Bram Stoker’s novel and turning it into a haunting, shadowy dream full of dread. Count Orlok, the rodentlike vampire frighteningly portrayed by Max Schreck, is perhaps the most animalistic screen portrayal of a vampire ever filmed.

With the influence of producer and production designer Albin Grau, the film established one of two main depictions of film vampires. The “Nosferatu-type” is a living corpse with rodent features (especially elongated fingernails and incisors), associated with rats and plague, and neither charming nor erotic but rather totally repugnant. The victims usually die and are not turned into vampires themselves. (Directed by F.W. Murnau)

IMDB: 8.1 | Rotten Tomatoes: 9.0 | Average: 8.55

Though they aren’t movies we just had to mention the following also:

Ultraviolet (1998)


Ultraviolet is a six hour British miniseries that takes place in a world where vampires have lived with humans for centuries and have gone mostly undetected. However, this changes when detective Michael Colefield investigates the strange disappearance of his partner and discovers a troubling alternate reality where vampires seem to control a number of important aspects of society. Because of this experience, Michael is recruited by the government’s vampire squad, the CIB, an elite team of agents who are trying to hunt down this society of vampires. A dark, brooding series that plays like a mix of X-Files and Prime Suspect, Ultraviolet is one of the most engrossing series to appear on the small screen in years. (Directed by Joe Ahearne)

IMDB: 8.5 | Rotten Tomatoes: N/A

Hellsing (2006)


Hellsing follows Alucard and police girl-turned-vampire Seras Victoria as they exterminate the vampires and other creatures of the night for England’s Hellsing Organization. Hellsing is unique in that it takes much of itself from late 19th century and early 20th century Western fiction. It includes themes primarily from H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu works and Bram Stoker’s Dracula, rolled together with some fast-paced action sequences. The main characters are part of the Hellsing organization, which may have been inspired by the Lovecraftian Miskatonic University’s Wilmarth Foundation, an organization formed for fighting demons and the undead. (Directed by Hideki Tonokatsu and Tomokazu Tokoro)

  1. Adam Black

    Great choices! You forgot “Blood and Donuts”, though. ;)

    Editor: Added. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. ScytheNoire

    just because a movie is old doesn’t make it good. see a lot of old one’s that aren’t that good, or should be further down the list.
    also see some that aren’t even vampire movies or have anything to do with vampires, such as Nightbreed.

  3. AeC

    Perhaps it doesn’t count since a) it was made concurrently with the Lugosi Dracula by the same production company and b) I think it’s been available as a bonus on the last several DVD releases of Browning’s film, but the 1931 Spanish language Drácula deserves special mention if only because it’s so much more competently directed. Unfortunately, Carlos Villatias has nowhere near the screen presence of Bela, which unfortunately does hurt this version.

    Incidentally, I was positively giddy to see Martin in the top five. A sublime film that more people really should see.

  4. Sean McKenzie

    What the??? Queen of the Damned is widely regarded as a flop, with the excuse being the need to rapidly and haphazardly combine two books into one, with an unneeded recap of the first film thrown in for bad measure. Van Helsing was a joke of stellar proportions. And who can forget Jessica Biel slipping on her iPod (for what? so she cannot hear an attack??) to battle bad guys in Blade: Please Kill This Franchise. This looks more like a list made up just to make a list, with whatever they could remember off the top of their head. Pathetic.

  5. Matt

    Umm, what happened to “My Best Friend is a Vampire?” It has a 5.3 on IMDB and is unrated at Rotten Tomatoes. So it should be number 58. And the fact is that it is a better Vampire movie than many of the ones made today. Very tounge in cheek, and very funny in lots of ways.

  6. Michele

    I was so glad to find Nosferatu the Vampyre on your list: it was the first Klaus Kinski movie I’d ever seen and I loved it. The photography is astounding: scenes still linger in my mind.

  7. Bryan Colley

    You totally missed Ravenous from 1999. Better than most of the movies here.

    • Hans Olo

      Although Ravenous is a very good movie and when you have never heard of this movie I suggest to watch it. Still, it has nothing to do with vampires but more to do with ‘The Wendigo’ and cannibalism. Great movie!

  8. Blackenstein

    If anything, this list shows that there are far fewer than 70 good vampire movies. However there are a bunch I’ve never heard of and am now curious about, so thanks!

    What about Carl Dreyer’s “Vampyr”? Very well regarded.

  9. Katt

    OMFG I’ve seen every single one of these. It’s sad really. LOL.

  10. Shane

    Maybe that’s because Ravenous isn’t a vampire movie.

  11. Splody

    You also forgot “Dracula: Dead and Loving it”, possibly the best vampire comedy ever!

  12. Louis

    I wonder how 30 Days of Night would fare in this list. Anyway, just one day to go!

  13. KiwiHopeful

    Two questions:

    1. Why not have the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series on your ‘honorable mention’ list? All fanboyism aside, it was a great series that built great mythology around the existing vampire mythology and was well written.

    2. Why isn’t ‘Perfect Creature’ on your list, with 5.5 stars (though I suspect that will go up once it is released this month in NZ)?

  14. Jeremy


  15. Scott

    Great list – I just added a few to my Blockbuster list.

    Here’s one of my faves that did not make the list: “Nightlife ” (1990) It was an HBO homegrown I think. Still no DVD. Great cast, black comedy type.

  16. Andrew

    While I love the breadth of this list, relying on IMDB’s voters to pick the best movies of any genre will always result in some stunningly bad choices–and wildly odd ones, too (how else to explain how fanboy perennials like “Fright Night,” cult flicks like “Vampire’s Kiss” and a Guy Maddin movie all end up on the same list).

    I’m a list addict, and love seeing other people’s thoughts on my own favs and guilty pleasures. A little disappointing the staff of this site didn’t add their own critiques to these films. And that “The Hunger” ranked so low (sure it’s far from a perfect film, but so are most vampire genre movies).

  17. jason

    Anybody ever see “Habit”? Decent low budget vampire flick.

  18. Jonas

    There are 70 Vampire movies at all?! Shit! There ARE 70 Vampire movies at all!

  19. Bodhi

    I can’t agree that “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” is “closely based” on the novel. It’s more of a free adaptation using themes from the book.

    The most accurate version I’ve seen is one that isn’t on your list: Philip Saville’s “Count Dracula” from 1977. It’s not only a close adaptation but is also an excellent film in its own right. (Okay, it was a TV miniseries rather than a film, but who’s quibbling).

  20. Gypsyli

    Great choices! I am so happy to see Near Dark on the list. Bill Paxton’s rampage in the bar and his “it’s finger lickin’ good” statement is the best blood sucking scene ever!

  21. Terri

    I would also love to see a “Slasher” movie list, a “Ghost” movies list and an “Alien” list. How about it, everyone?

  22. Joseph

    I gotta say, Black Sunday (aka Mask of Satan) just plain RULES…the mood, the atmosphere…it’s clearly set the stage for a lot of other horror flicks..
    Another film not to miss is Near Dark….this one was done by James Cameron’s girlfriend, so she had access to his production crews and actors (Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, and Jeanette Goldstein, all from the then-recently-filmed Aliens, are major characters).
    This one came out around the same time as the Lost Boys (but Near Dark filming started earlier) and could be seen as a contemporary or competition….but I see it as more complimentary to The Lost Boys…the films are very different…too different to really be competing flicks (although both are absolute must-see’s or must-buys).

  23. palinode

    A couple of favourites of mine didn’t make the list. Someone mentioned Larry Fessenden’s “Habit” earlier, which was a really good low-budget vampire film. But the real omission is Daughters of Darkness. That was the creepiest movie about vampires I’ve ever seen.

  24. doug l

    What?! You seem to have overlooked the 1977 Great Performances/BBC production of “Count Dracula”, directed by Phillip Saville and starring Louis Jourdan. Anyone who appreciates the actual Bram Stoker book, and has longed for the day when a literal interpretation of this great book is going to be made, may I suggest that past is prelude and that one should find a copy of this incredible production. Not heavy on SFX…though some very effective video effects of the era…give it an almost surreal feeling.

  25. Cairo

    I loved this list, simply because there are actually some on here I haven’t seen. Reading the comments has certainly peaked my interest about the British mini series, too. I wonder where one would dig up a copy…….
    If you’re going to suggest TV series for honorable mention, why not Dark Shadows? Sure it was terribly cheesy, but Barnabas Collins was great! Am I showing my age? :D

  26. Josh K

    Great to see that both Nightwatch and Daywatch get recognition but neither of them is really a vamp movie. There are some vampires in them but thats it.

  27. Becky P

    Once Bitten (1985) starring Lauren Hutton & Jim Carrey was a great, cheesy vampire comedy.

  28. Sally Kronz

    I saw a western Dracula years ago, and that movie wasn’t mentioned. I don’t remember the exact title, but Michael Pate was the star. Anyone else remember this one?

  29. Armand

    Great me all worked up. I would have to say though, Blade 2 is def much better than Blade 1, though both are still my fav. Blade 3 was simply too painful to watch. What a waste. Why is it that Hollywood always fails to get the 3rd one right? Think Pirates 3, Shrek 3, Spidey3, Matrix 3, etc…

    I agree with Terry (comment 470). How about Top 70 (why 70 beats me) Aliens movie of all time? How about 70s horror (with ghost, gouls, not just thrillers) of all time?

    While at that, you should really do another list of Top 70 most frightening movie of all times ( all goes, monster, vamp, ghost etc).

    To begin with, my top 5
    1) Salem’s Lot
    2) The Thing
    3) Alien
    4) Halloween
    5) Evil Dead

  30. Charles E.

    Where’s “House of Dark Shadows”? After all, it WAS based on a hit TV show that had TV’s first vampire hero, Barnabas Collins. For the 1970 movie, ‘Dark Shadows’ creator Dan Curtis made the character decidedly more malevolent, with tons of blood and effects.

    How this film was overlooked in favor of “Vampire In Brooklyn” for this list is beyond me! Also, how could you mention a TV show like ‘Ultraviolet’ and NOT mention ‘Dark Shadows’ as well? Shame on you guys! Go to your local video rental place and start watching the episodes RIGHT NOW!

  31. Jason

    I see why you’d use the rottentomatos and imdb data, but that’s a really weak list. There’s got to be a better way of doing this.

  32. Antonio

    Well, I think the intention of this list was good. But perhaps 70 is too grand a number for top vamp movies of all time. Cut that down to twenty or so, and the excess will simply fall by the wayside. I mean, Queen of the Damned? That flick was a disgrace to vampire in general, the book in specific. And, yes, Once Bitten should definately have been on the list. When Jim Carrey moves both his eyebrows like a wave….classic.

  33. Paul

    “I saw a western Dracula years ago, and that movie wasn’t mentioned. I don’t remember the exact title, but Michael Pate was the star. Anyone else remember this one?”

    You’re thinking of “Curse of the Undead” with Eric Fleming (of “Rawhide” fame) as the heroic Preacher. It was produced by Universal in 1959. IMDB gives it a 5.7 rating.

    I have my own review of it here:

    Aside from “Curse of the Undead,” I also think “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” should be on this list as well as Jesus Franco’s 1970 version of “Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula” starring Christopher Lee, Herbert Lom as Van Helsing, and Klaus Kinski as Renfield. Although I haven’t seen it recently, as I recall this version is actually the closest adaptation of Stoker’s novel.

  34. Pauline

    I agree with Doug1, fantastic version BBC’s 1977, “Dracula”. Starring Louis Jourdan, and if I recall Laurence Oliver too. Beautifully shot, erotic and romantic too.

    I also loved John Badham’s 1979 “Dracula – a Love Story” starring Frank Langella, Kate Nelligan, Donald Pleasence. In fact, I would put that at number 1. I can’t believe it is nowhere on the list.

  35. Pauline

    OK, Laurence Olivier was in the John Badham one (whoops)

  36. Hamed

    The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967) is the best of all.isn’t it?

  37. Stunner

    Sean McKenzie – Shut the hell up! Nobody gives a $@!%!

  38. Jonathan Malcolm Lampley

    I am impressed with this vampire movie list, although there are some films missing (VAMPYR, HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS, more Chris Lee flicks) and some that are ranked way too high or low. But I am glad to see my favorite, HORROR OF DRACULA, ranked so high.

    BTW, to the person who was asking about a vampire Western with Michael Pate–the film you are looking for is called CURSE OF THE UNDEAD. It was made by Universal around 1959 and was available on VHS at one point. Not sure if it ever came out on DVD, but keep an eye out!



  39. Pat

    The fact that I find little fault with this list is a testament to the fact that most vampire movies suck – there aren’t even 70 good ones. The fact that the Buffy movie, Blade Trinity, and Dracula 2000 could all make this list is pathetic. Somebody needs to start making some good vampire movies, STAT. (I love the Buffy TV show, so don’t think I’m insulting the Buffyverse as a whole)

  40. Mo

    Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter would have made a great addition to the list. It wasn’t even mentioned….

  41. TM

    Criminal omission: “The Lair of the White Worm”. Directed by Ken Russell and based upon the Bram Stoker novel of the same name.

  42. Brendan


    Blood: The Last Vampire, Blade Trinity and Van Helsing above Queen of the Damned AND Buffy? That’s just bad.

  43. Kyouki

    um you got the description of Blood:the Last vampire wrong

    she uses her blood to kill them, not a magic sword

    also..why isn’t blood+ on there? its like 4 times as good as the last vampire

  44. Grandfather Time

    You forgot the incredible film; The Vampire Happening….

    I am dissappointed that it is not included on this list….

  45. jim

    umm im guessing you guys who are doubting this list are knobs who havent actually seen these 70 movies that the writer has, actually im betting you have only have seen around mmm 10. maybe… so you can appreciate this other vampire movie lovers top list or slag off this persons list like a 12 year old Aol douchebag. the choice is yours. btw nosferatu is widely considered one of the best horror movies of all time let alone wamphyri movies f all time

  46. Jeff

    well, you forgot cassidy from preacher in the other mentions, otherwise, gooood stuff.

  47. Apathygrrl

    Ok, remove that “Dracula: pages from a virgin’s diary” from your list. That movie was awful, boring, and wrong on many levels. It was wretched. My friend saw it for free and wanted his money and 2 hours of his life back. Why the heck was Dracula Asian?? Ugh, that movie was so bad, worse than Bordello of blood.

  48. LitCritter

    What about the genius that is “Embrace of the Vampire”? Alyssa Milano is sheer bliss in that.

  49. Rack

    Firstly all films before 1970 should not be considered as they all all terrible (awful special effects, poor sound, bad acting, some even black + white!), also no anime (not really films per se!) + Queen of the Damned was actually pretty good! Blade Trinity was also the best of the 3! Also Lost Boys no. 18?!?!? Should surely be no. 1!!! Ooh controversial!!!

  50. Kyzer

    Where is HABIT ?

  51. jk

    Awww… no Bloody Mary?

  52. jk

    …nevermind, apparently Bloody Mary is also known as Innocent Blood.

  53. Shannan

    Entertaining movies, bad order… extremely bad.

  54. Bill Carter

    As with any list,not everyone will agree on 100% of the choices.But,in my humble opinion as a TRUE vampire film lover of about 38 years (or so),a few deserving titles were omitted: House Of Dark Shadows,Twins Of Evil,Dracula Has Risen from The Grave,Taste The Blood Of Dracula,Dracula,Prince Of Darkness, Lust For A Vampire,and Subspecies 2.One could also argue that Scars of Dracula,Dracula A.D.1972,Subspecies 3,and Return Of Count Yorga,Vampire also are decent enough to qualify.If I had alittle more time,a few other titles would probably come to mind as well.Anyway,Thanks for a great list!!

  55. pontificant

    as a few others have said, Larry Fessenden’s Habit deserves to be somewhere near the top of this list.

  56. Blah!!

    i really like the list, since im a big vampire fan. i read the ppls comments..some seem stoopid some are very helpful….and others are just there…..since im living my young years i am very impress with the new vampire movies….and i wouldn’t degrade them from the older vamp. movies. In my opinion
    “Queen Of The Dammend” & “The Lost Boys” are pretty good
    which are like my fav ones…rite after there is “Near Dark” which is like an awesome movie….the one movie that i couldnt stand was “Innocent Blood” it was defenetly very lame its like a mafia movie wit a very bad vampire chick…shes not even hot.
    she doesnt even seem like a vamp. its like really lame..seriously.DONT WATCH THAT ONE!!
    now ill just end this wit a tahnk u to the list for the info on all other movies….but i do agree ive seen other vamp. movies that are not mention here….UPDATE IT!!!!

  57. Bragi

    Queen of the damned and the Interview with the Vampire are the bestvampire movies out there.

  58. michael

    I like to know al about vampire/ ect. get back to me soon.

  59. GAB

    For me Interview with the Vampire is number one… :D

  60. Artorius

    Ok, i hate the list (no offense) but, I simply hate old movies, crappy quality movies, and movies that are made by people who know nothing about vampires. Just my opinion, but underworld, blade and van helsing should have been at the top.

  61. fooof

    heyyy guys :D
    thx for the list… but i have to say that old movies don really interest me too.. but they used to interest older pps be4 so no harm.. but we’d love more modern awesome movies that are similar to interview with a vampire which is absolutely no. 1… i also love the anime vamp movies.. +queen of the damned… ppl have diff tastes but that what makes life AWESOME..

    What a bunch of weirdos Rotten Tomatoes’ reviewers are! I couldn’t believe “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” was rated 11th (above Dusk Til Dawn, Salem’s Lot, Interview with the Vampire), so I checked out some of their reviews.

    Apparently no one there thought Keanu Reeves was utterly unconvincing as an Englishman (especially that cringeworthy accent), no one thought Gary Oldman’s performance was too far over-the-top (even for him) and no one realised how little the movie resembled the book it was supposedly based on (much of the dialogue is recycled from early vampire films and the book never made any mention of Vlad “The Impaler” Tepes or a romance between Mina and Dracula).

    Maybe they were completely swept away by the camerawork (which has now dated horribly)… or maybe they’ve mixed it up with something else?

  63. lamboringo

    I’m surprised the list doesn’t include razorblade smile. For those who like subtle and cold blooded movies.

  64. tillymoondrop

    hey i saw a movie advertised when i was very young about vampires. this vampire queen or something was telling this guy he had to bite the girl he loved and he didn’t wanna do it. anyone know what it is?

  65. Kami

    Queen of the Damned-Great visuals, Aaliyah did a great job, what a bod! And the chemistry with “Lestat” (sexy!!!) this is an addicting movie. Interview with the Vampire SUCKED. NOT scary in the least. Only plus-costumes. Tx for putting Near Dark in high ranking, still scares the crap outta me. And of course Dusk to Dawn, Fright Night-Unique, funny, intense…

  66. Rachael

    i love queen of the damned. i agree with the people that said good things about it .it is the best film out and aaliyah r.i.p.
    tillymoondrop it was queen of the damned, you were talking about it being advertised.

    well bye xoXOxo

  67. LittleMissVampireLover

    I’ve only seen a few of these movies and they alone have lead me to the world of vampires. I think interveiw with a vampire should be number one because my dad bought it on video around 1995 and I watched it with him and since then been vampire mad :P plus Tom Cruise as Lestat is SEXY xD

  68. LittleMissVampireLover

    p.s I was like 4 at the time xD

  71. Ben Mears

    Salem’s Lot rocks! Saw it on TV when I was about 8 and it still gives me the heeby-jeebies when I think about it! Should be number one!

  72. ripley

    dream line up for the ann rice series as follows ( i think so anyway)
    lestat – Stuart Townsend. cocky, sexy, and lovely to watch.
    louis – Brad Pitt (louis is 5 years older tha lestat when embraced, remember) – so, the age he was when he did interview.
    armond – Kristen Holden-Ried from touch of pink. he is lovely and has that perfect young boyish looks, just grow that wonderful auburn hair and you got it.
    claudia – Kirsten Dunst at that age – she did a great job
    queen – i’d keep Aaliyah. she was beautiful.
    Marius – Vincent Perez was fun.

    it’d be great to see it done in 3 movies a little more consistant w/ the books. (queen was ok but 2 books crammed into one film…)
    so, any one have suggestions for the rest of the cast? Magnus? the twins? Pandora? Jesse?

  73. Bill Williams

    OK – does anybody remember which vampire movie it was…

    - black and white (so it’s old)
    - the vampire (Dracula) turns a guy who ends up in a prison or a mental hospital
    - in one scene the doctor (psychiatrist) is asking the guy about eating spiders and the guy says, “Why should I eat spiders when I can eat nice juicy flies?”

    This scene is stuck in my head forever but I cannot remember the movie name.

    Its annoying that so many people are being so negative about some of these movies. Not all vampire movies are supposed to be scary for one thing… some of the best vampire movies out there are great because they’re soo cheesy- thats why people like them. And yeh, sure some movies may be worse than others but there is no need to get all worked up about it. It’s not like your life depends on there being a maticulously compiled list of vampire movies thats entierly accurate to you. Your opinion isn’t the only one that matters… try being more productive, instead of just putting people down all the time!

    Nobody is going to agree with the entire list, but it’s just for fun, don’t take things so seriously!

    I’ve been a fan of the vampire genre from a very young age and not beacause it scares me, but because the stories are engaging and enjoyable.

    I found this list very helpfull and there are definatly some movies that I’m going to check out soon, so thanks :D

  76. Bill Williams

    I finally found the reference on the Internet Movie DB. The line is not exactly as I remembered it but it is the movie:

    Martin:Aren’t you ashamed now? Aren’t you? Spiders now, is it? Flies aren’t good enough!
    Renfield: Flies? Flies? Poor puny things! Who wants to eat flies?
    Martin: You do, you loony!
    Renfield: Not when I can get nice fat spiders!

    It’s the original Dracula from 1931 and Renfield was the pop-eyed lunatic. He still haunts me.

  77. Carla

    Hi there,

    I have wondered this for many years and this looks like a good place to ask a question like this. Perhaps someone who has watched the same movie will recognize parts of this movie I am going to explain and tell me exactly which Vampire movie it is as I would love to get a copy of it some where. I was only a young girl when I watched the movie so only remembering bits and pieces. Two of my main memories of this movie is (which seemed scary when your a child – yet I always loved a good story to scare me) I remember a scene where people were people were searching for a grave, dug open and found the back side panel of the coffin to have no back , only the satin covering which led underground,which they then crawled through in search of vampires, or someone who had been taken (not so sure which or why) then in the last scene of the movie, a vampire who was in love with a woman , was trying to escape away with her on a ship. He was caught ; a fight broke out in which the vampire had a hook swung into his back and then was hoisted up into the daylight and closing scene was him burning up in the sun and nothing left but his cape blowing in the wind. If anyone can identify this movie for me can you please email me at

    Thanks so much,

  78. webwolf

    Lost Boys should be at the top of the list, IMO anyway.

    first vampire movie I ever saw, so I am Bias, but hey its a great movie. Dracula 2000 was a great twist on the dracula series loved it.

    Ive seen almost movie in the list, most of them are good, some are tacky, others just plain crap – but all in all, excellent list ( A marks out of 10 voting system would be cool :)

  79. Aniol

    Personally I really like Queen of the Damned, and of course Interview with the vampire. I cannot see how Bram Stocker’s Dracula can be so appriciated. I have seen it and I don’t like it. Anyone up for Dracula – read the book. However Nosferatu and Shadow of the Vampire are 2 great movies.

  80. mark

    Have a lost my mind!!! Some people not only liked “Queen of the Damned” but thought it should be ranked higher! To all the 10 yr. olds writing in, yes, movies where once B & W and without CGI (horrors!!!). Maybe one day you will out grow Van Helsing & Underworld and actually appreciate the great classics of cinema such as Nosferatu & the immortal Lugosi.

  81. Zoe

    well our school is making a film about vampires so i thought i would see what makes a good vampire film and look at some examples!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks to all
    xx Zoe xx

  82. Gen

    Night Junkies: Brit flick that had a decent take on the vampire-as-junkie theme…only a 4.7 on IMDB so it didn’t make the list…but I thought it had charm (especially with Giles Anderson half-naked half the time)

  83. Gen

    Giving one for the ladies (Night Junkies) reminded me of one for the men- Rise, with Lucy Liu (the unrated version)…graphic cinematography when it comes to the actual blood “sucking,” which is just a bonus to the performance of Ms. Liu

  84. Cherri Mae

    Queen of the Damned was good! However it didn’t meet the potential the story line could have aclaimed to. I look forward to the release of the movie “Twilight” based on the novel written by Stephanie Meyer!

    Oh by the way Mark “CHILL OUT”!!!

  85. Keny Luger

    I think ‘Dracula’s Widow’ was really, really scary at the time that I saw it.

    Some persons mentioned some omissions so I think the list could use an update to maybe the top 100 Vampire Movies of All Time.

    Great list though…I’m going from 1-70 and watching those I haven’t seen as yet. Watched Nosferatu last week and I just watched Dracula (1931). Great movies for sure.

  86. Dizidenta.

    Queen of the Damned and Van Helsing are the best movies with vampires I’ve ever seen :X Interview with the vampire was great too :x

  87. Fallonsfreeway

    I am looking for the name of the movie in which vampir hunters go to this village, stop at the home where a funeral is occurring for a young girl who was to have been married the next day. She becomes a vampire. The hunters stay at the local castle. During the night, in the room of one of the hunters a tall picture opens up, exposing a stairwell leading downward, and a vampire woman comes out to bite him but his cross on his neck stops her. In the morning, he notices the black mark the picture made on the floor from opening and discovers the stairway downward. Does anyone know what this movie is titled?

  88. Fraker

    Fallonsfreeway, i know what movie it is. It is called BeoWulf by christopher lambert

  89. Fallonsfreeway

    Fraker…Thank you. Now I know which to look for. I appreciate your knowledge. Fallonsfreeway

  90. Fallonsfreeway

    Fraker…Thank you. Now I know which to look for. I appreciate your knowledge. Fallonsfreeway

    Actually, I Googled it and only got the Norse tale. That’s not what I’m looking for as the one I’m looking for occurred in Centeral Europe (more than likely Translevania).

  91. mrsedwardcullen

    u guys are gonna have to add another movie to ur list soon…the greatest vampire book eva (in my humble opinion) is being made into a movie….its going to be released this year,december. Yep twilight by stephenie meyers…..kick ass!!

  92. vampiri amanti

    Nice listing! thanks.

  93. Roth Von Kruger

    I think “interview with the vampire” deserved better than 14th…. not by much but still….. at least no one included “bloody rayne” that was just bloody shit!!

  94. eli

    Just a small hint – You’ve made the most typical “westerners mistake” about Hellsing (not that I known since I was born, naw) ;) The name of “Seras Victoria” is used in that specific order only due to Japanese tradition of putting family name before given name – Japanese person would say Smith Adam, not Adam Smith. The whole story is supposed to happen in UK, so her name is european, but the manner is still Japanese. Therefore, she is Victoria(given name) Seras(family name).

  95. Ookami

    Wow…I’m kinda surprised that Hellsing made #1…

  96. Queen Quillotene

    As a vampyre, I am a little let down by the list. I guess you had to get 70 movies from somewhere. At least #1 and #2 were correctly ordered.

  97. Bryan

    Queen of the Damned is #67…. but Blade Trinity is #59? Queen of the Damned might have not been faithful to the book, but dear god… it is certainly much better acted then Blade Trinity. In fact it is far better then any of the abysmal Blade series. Not to mention Queen of the Damned has an amazing original soundtrack that was done just for the movie.

    And Van Helsing is #62? Again, that is just a massive slap in the face to the decent movie Queen of the Damned.

    Half of the movies on the list are absolutely horrible and unwatchable unless you are a vintage film buff. The other half only has a handful of good picks…. all in all, horrible list.

  98. Marco

    where the hell is Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “Vampyr?”

  99. Ellie

    Wow. I haven’t seen most of these (unfortunately), but I preferred Queen of the Damned to Interview with the Vampire. Of course, that could be because I’m a teenage girl who prefers Stuart Townsend.

  100. Panic

    hello all
    first of all, let me say I’m no expert, i have just been a fan of Vampire movies over the years and some of the listed movies, i really havent watched
    Bad choice listing in the same place comedy/horror as well as animated/”real movies”.
    Exemple: sure Vampire Hunter D is very good… BUT you can’t compare it to Bram’s Dracula… not in the same way you can compare (ramdomly) one of the “blades” with one of the “underworlds”. i can’t see what standards did you used to make the list… story itself? good acting? (in some cases it seems some movies were pushed up or down because of theire age).
    on to the “chronicles” based movies positioning:
    ok everyone knows that sadly Interview is not 100% faithful to the book, but still all the book’s atmosfere remains and it’s a pretty good vampire movie – it really should be in front of cronos and Vampire D. Queen of the damned i can uderstand why its so further down, it was a travesti to all the Lestat charater what they did to him (and other chars as well).

    John carpenter’s Vampires at 55???? behind that twin efect and love at first bite?

    oh and if you are reagarding such scripts as “alien vampires” well Vampirella falls in that area. speaking of trash… The Breed sux but its still better than some movies you have there so is Tsui Hark’s vampires (weird vamp on that one but at least its a vampire…sort of)

    in the end, thank you for some titles, im going to look for them

  101. Petra

    I think the series of moonlight with Alex O’Laughlin would also fall innto this categories. By the way Alex O’Laughlin is beathtakingliy sexy, cute and handsome. ooooohhhh

  102. fizzle

    im glad there is a list available! but i think it’s a bit outdated! although the classics are no doubt good movies, nowadays people just want a vampire movie with blood, sex and violence. i think the only reason people like queen of the damned more is because “Lestat” is so hot in it! and the whole idea of a vampire is someone who is drop-dead gorgeous and irresistible and who wants to suck your blood! but thanks for the list, i plan to watch all of them anyway!
    this is my top 5
    1) underworld (she’s hot and its got so much action)
    2) underworld 2
    3) interview with a vampire (brad pitt come on!)
    4) Rise (lots of sex, blood and guts!)
    5) Queen of the damned
    but i haven’t seen all of them, in fact i haven’t seen very many but i must say these ones a good!
    And the best vampire movie is coming out soon
    see TWILIGHT on the 12th December, and you’ll see what i mean about irristible vampires!

  103. lacie

    i agree with fizzle. those are basically my top also. i cant wait til the Twilight movie comes out i so excited! if they screw it up i will be seriously pissed off! hope its great. dont particularly like the dude playing edward though. but there isnt a guy on this earth who could match up to edward lol :) this is a great list but yeah it does need to be updated a bit :)

  104. Matthew

    I cannot understand why INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE (with Brad Pitt, Tom Criuse, and Kirsten Dunst) and BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA (1992) (with Winona Rider, Keanu Reeves, Anthony Hopkins, and Monica Bellucci) were not in the top 5, they were classical vampire movies, but more then anything they were enjoyable to watch, truley showed vampires, had amazing acting and the films had wonderful filmography.
    Also, I’m about to see THE HUNGER and I’m sure it’s quite good, I can’t believe it ranked so low, it has Cathrine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon for christ’s sake!

  105. Shane

    Good list, though I agree some of the movies on this list are strange – but 70 is a lot of freaking movies to organize into one list. I with all of the Hammer Vampire movies were on here – even the bad ones from that series are better than some of the ones at the bottom of this list.

  106. Winnie

    WHAT THE HECK? Van Helsing is one of the best vampire movies out there! It should have a higher rating and be in a higher spot!

  107. Amy

    Queen Of The Damned?! Why?!!! Sorry but that film is the biggest piece of crap!
    I can’t say I was really keen on Nosferatu either to be honest.
    The Lost Boys however is excellent!
    Interview With A Vampire as cliche as it may be has got to be one of my all time favourite vampire movies.
    Embrace Of The Vampire!!! Ok so it’s actually kinda crap. Just naffy cheap Vampire porn but whatever it should be on here anyway lol x

  108. Eliza

    The majority of this list is great (except the dire and trite Queen of the Damned of course). But are there any vampire films anyone can recommend other than the ones listed? I am trying to get through as many as I can so would be very grateful to hear peoples opinions! x

  109. chapienfriends

    i like frankenstien better!

  110. Kriss

    I love vamp movies, especially those you can really SINK your teeth into lol

    and would just like to mention the brilliant ‘Buffy the vampire slayer’ series which had 7 great seasons and deserves an acknowledgement!!!

  111. Kriss

    Oh and BTW Brian Colley is soooo right, that is if Im thinking of the right film! Guy Pearce? turned sort of cannibal, not acctually a vampire film, yet, it does involve the eating of flesh and sucking of blood, so it should count, and its better than most of the films on the list with good acting and a great final scene!

  112. Kriss

    OK, Im literally trying to dominate this board thing lol

    I’ve just got to say, after reading ALL the comments left, people are right, ‘Queen of the Damned’ isnt the best vamp film ever made! It has good acting, but plzzz, no one can take over a Tom Cruise part, I’m not a fan, but he’s a legendery actor, and this guy who plays him (his name, anyone?) just doesn’t do it for me… and yes, the vampire movies arent ment to be all gory and blood drenched horrors, a vampire movie is ment to release the person feelings and views on what one is, as supressed desires, or scary mythological creatures of the night lol

    Any way, I just reckon we need a good vamp movies which doesn’t seem like it follows in the wake of the ‘Bram Stoker’ novel, which was shit BTW, it totally wasn’t scary or sexual!!!
    and instead, make one that breaks free into its own stride and sets a new age of vamp films onto us, like Underworld did in my opinion! not the greatest, yet it was … some what different.

    Oh and btw ’30 days of night’ was a breath of fresh air in this genre! it had no, sexy vixen vamps or changing faces from vamp to human, but kept the creatures in full form unhumanly and was in my opinion… a true vamp movie ;) watch it if u havent already k!!!


  113. David Williams

    Very obscure 70′s German vampire film: “Jonothan”. I’ve seen it once on a rather poorly transferred second hand dvd, but even for that, it was one of the best vampire films I have ever seen.

  114. matt

    great list very terrible order.

  115. Sophie

    Hey what about
    ( Hellsing ova )
    ( Vampire princess Miyu )

  117. aries_granata

    I’m not a very passionate fan of vampire (or other “creatures”) movies but I was looking most of all for movies where vampires fall in love with humans and find a way through, without harming them :D I loved “Queen of the damned”, I was not very impressed by “Embrace of the vampire”, but it was quite good… and I’m going to see “Interview with the vampire” ;) do you have any other suggestions (hopefully with handsome actors ;) ? please email me at if you do

  118. mk

    ummm where the hell was dracula: dead and loving it? leslie neilsen does the best portrayal of dracula ever seen.

    … yeh im kidding :)

  119. Loks

    Hello People!

    I don’t know if anyone of you has seen this french vampire movie… not sure who the actors were, but i thought it was a pretty good movie.. i believe it was made somewhere between 1930 to 1945. if anyone has any idea about this movie.. then please do let me know!


  120. AnimeLover

    WOW! I’m surprised that anime actually made it on the list! Theres even vampire hunter d!!! Awesome!!!

  122. Patricia Shields

    Great website, listing lots of great films I didn’t even know existed. One comment, though. Where’s Gerard Butler’s photo for Dracula 2000???? If you need a photo, I have one.

  123. Heather C

    I have to agree with mrsedwardcullen The list is gonna need to be redone cuz of course 12/12/08 TWILIGHT IS COMING TO THEATRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  124. Annie T

    i reckon that this is one of the best vampire movie collections that ive seen in a long time so keep up the exellent work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    that is from a chic who is so interested in all things scary, vampirish, warewolvish and nightmarish.

    underworld movies ROX!!!!!!! and Doom.

    peace out dudes and Dudettes!!!!!!

  125. Miss Edward Cullen

    I think that from the likes of it Twilight is going to be the best romantic vampire movie of all time, well except for when New Moon the movie comes out!!! Edward Cullen is FREAK’IN DROP DEAD SEXY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ( undead I mean, lol)

  127. Diana

    I NEED HELP ! Pleease!!! A really long time ago I rented this old vampire movie,and now I can’t find it ANYWHERE! The problem is that this movie was called “Interview with a vampire”. It was probably translated wrong. It was about this blonde guy who is a vampire and he falls in love with this librarian chick. I think her name was Victoria,but I’m not sure. And there was this doctor there. And I don’t remember the plot,but I know it was a really silent and slow dark movie.And I’m pretty sure it was from the 80′ or the 70′.
    PLEASE! If anyone has any information about this movie e-mail me my mail is

    • An Answer

      Four years later, so you probably forgot all about/don’t care about this movie anymore. It was bugging me too and i saw your post. I found out its called Tale of a Vampire. The guy who plays the vampire is called Julian Sands. It’s on hulu right now as a matter of fact. Its from 1993.

  128. PEN

    In response to the above, it is difficult to know exactly what film you are talking about. Old can be any where from 5 to almost 90 years. However although I do not recall a blonde Dracula falling for a librarian, I do recall a blonde Dracula falling for a ME after being chained and held captive by several ex college students. That was in Dracula II by Wes Craven and was released abiut 2002-03, and a very good vamp film. Perhaps a little better idea of what era you are talking about, I.E, silent, classics (Bela Lugosi era) , The Hammer era (Christopher Lee), or mor modern films, modern meaning 90′s and up. It would also be good to know if it was black and white or color, there were a couple modern films done in black and white. I hope this was helpful.


  129. Diana

    Hy,thank you very much for answering me ^^
    Well,this was an older film,maybe from the 70′s 80′s or 90′s.It was in color.I saw it when I was a kid and the picture quality was a bit low.I could try to remember the plot a little bit more.I’m not sure if this is completely wright since I saw it a really long time ago but I’ll try to remember.I know he had a relationship with this girl,I think she was a kid and then she grew up,he probably rased her or something but I think she died.After that he met this librarian girl,who he fell in love with.I remember this scene where a woman,probably she,was lying down and he stood over her and slit his wrist,drank some of his blood and kissed her while pouring the blood into her mouth.I also remember this scene where him and the librarian chick were like on a date or something and she didn’t know he was a vampire, (I think he used to come to her library a lot and read there and that’s how they met) and they were just about to kiss and he lost control and bit her neck and she got really scared.After that there was this doctor or a vampire hunter or something and he came to her and said something like, “remember what he did to you last night,that’s how they express love”. So after that she knew he was a vampire.I also remember a couple of scenes, he was at this dark street and some guy walked next to him and he grabbed him by his neck and hung im in the air and then smashed his head and poured blood that came out of his head to his mouth.I also remember this scene where he was sitting on his bed and his cat walked to him and he grabbed her and petted her and then bit her and drank her blood.And the last scene I remember was that chick walking down a really long staircase and it was a really long scene with her walking and walking down,and I don’t remember what happened when she finally got down,but I know that he was down there and I think that vampire hunter guy was trying to kill him or something.That’s probably everything I remember from that movie,it was really artistic and dark and it had a really morbid atmosphere.

  130. PEN

    Hi Diane,

    1992 Way of the Vampire was released, About an old vampire that visits a library and falls for a librarian called Anne, I haven’t seen it, but since he is old and might be grey could be confused with blonde.


  131. twilightlover

    is it horrible that i loved queen of the damned? and i CANT WAIT for the twilight movies. idk if anyone has mentioned then yet but i got a big neck ache reading all of the comments, even tho they were great. im excited for the movie in december although i really cant see the same person who played cedric diggory playing THE Edward Cullen. sigh. bad casting.

    Yes, Dracula Dead and Loving It should be there, at least as a honorable mention..

  138. nichole

    I was happy to see Anne Rice stuff up there- but I think that Moon Child, a japanese vampire movie should be considered. It’s really good and… all too good to be passed up on this list. Vampire fans- look into it if you haven’t heard of it

  141. Anirud

    Somehow, the American taste for vampires seems to be quite different. Even Stephen King acknowledges that Christopher Lee was the Best Dracula ever. Does not mean everyone has to agree but the IMDB and Rotten Tomato ratings here show ethnocentrism. To give a top spot to a Bela Lugosi Dracula smacks of that. Bela Lugosi was not a convincing Dracula. He did not look menacing nor dignified. I think that Lee too cheapened himself in the latter films like the AD1972 etc.

    I do not think anyone outside America much cares for the American version of vampires which uses a lot of blood and gore, more than necessary- it stops being a genre of true terror and horror, and plays on our sense of revulsion.

  142. Kristy

    We are looking for an 80′s vampire movie ……hope someone can help us…….it was called The Sins of Sara we think.

    Anybody know this one?

  143. Kuchikisoren

    I’ve been looking for this one film, and I’ve been to a lot of sites reading summaries of the films. But I can’t find it. I’ve seen it played two or three times of UPN during the weekends. But that was a few years ago. So they sensor the movies and I haven’t seen it since I was a little kid. I can only remember some parts, but it was about this one guy. I think he didnt want to be a vampire, but some group of vampires were trying to make him accept it. I remember that at the beginning he’s in his rooms and he has a waking dream of someone coming under his door as mist and biting him. In the next scene he’s in the shower messing with the band aid he put on his bite. Please someone help me find the title.

  144. Wayne

    Well its obvious that a great movie should be judge
    by all of the ingredients that make it a great film
    like totaling cg effects, acting ability, story line, cinematography etc…
    so as to get an overall result.
    I think the final judgements here are biased to personal opinion, a vote by all of the people that commented above should give a more accurate judgment on the correct order of top 70 “Vampire” films.
    I would say ” Lost Boys ” should be no 1

    It would be interesting to know what is the no 1 top vampire book ever written ?

  145. Larz

    Crap, crap & more crap. Sorry but I want to watch horror for horrors sake. Including comedy & cheese, only means poor budget, poor directing, writing & or acting. And you losers who exclaim that bad is good, or cheap is good, or advise me not to take everything so seriously, can bite me. Don’t get me wrong, there is room for a wry comment from time to time. Anybody familiar with Brian Lumley’s Necroscope series?, I simply can’t wait for the film(s). If I want comedy I watch Adam Sandler, or Caddy Shack. I do love Near Dark, Lifeforce, Underworld & quite a few more of the listed, I just wish someone would edit out the BS

  146. PEN

    30 days of night was taken from frostbitten, the movie companies didnt want to pay royalties to frostbitten, nor pay for the having the speech redone, so they stole the idea about a month of darkness and wrote their own version becuase it was less costly. all in all for originality I give it to frostbitten. 30 days is alright if you like alot of gore.

  147. Maddy

    Tillymoondrop : Fright Night 2, Regine tries to convince Charlie to bite Alex

    Carla: John Badham’s Dracula

    Kuchikisoren: There was mist in it at one point, I believe. He also did have to put a band aid on his wound, and didn’t want to be a vampire. Fright Night 2 might be the movie you are looking for.

    I’m surprised ‘Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter’ and ‘Mr. Vampire’ weren’t listed, simply because I’ve seen them on SO MANY best vampire film lists. I like them both, they’re pretty good. But I understand, a list can only have so many Hammer flicks…but Mr. Vampire is actually very funny. There’s also ‘A Polish Vampire in Burbank’, but it’s really low budget and obscure. It is, however…a cult classic worthy of recognition (I mean, it was on USA up all night, for god’s sake.) I agree with many people on this list that ‘Dracula, Dead and Loving it’ should have a spot on the list. ‘Love Bites’, Dario Argento. That one’s pretty popular too. I don’t like it, but it’s still popular. And there’s the other ‘Love Bites’ with Adam Ant…but it’s really hard to find, so I understand it’s omission.

    All-in-all…it’s an OKAY list.

  148. Crystal

    The list was decent. I read the comments and was determined not to comment but- oh well, here it is. Vampire mythology changes over time. That’s why it’s called folklore. It changes by word of mouth, urban legend; and now various forms of electronic media have progressed vampire evolution. There is no such thing as an official empirical list of vampire qualities and characteristics. Also, just because a movie is old doesn’t make it bad. Directors and producers worked with what they had then, which requires more skill and creativity than a bunch of over the top computer generated effects. Most movies with too many effects have suffering plotlines because the focus is in the wrong area. Van Helsing, the Blade trilogy, Ultraviolet (The horrible U.S. film starring Milla Jovavich which thankfully did not appear on this list), and Queen of the Damned are huge examples of this erroneous focus. Bad, bad movies. I like the Hammer studios vampire flicks (although they are cheesey, Christopher Lee is the perfect Dracula). I also loved Interview with the Vampire because it is dark, sensual, and romantic with appropriate minimalistic effects. I also really love and fall asleep almost every night to Francis Ford Copolla’s (sp?) version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula because of Gary Oldman’s performance and the artistic visuals. It’s really a feast for the senses. I was disappointed that Daughters of Darkness did not make the list. That is an awesome and creepy vampire flick. The main protagonist is much scarier than bathory the vampiress. Anyway, pretty interesting stuff.

  149. Quentin

    I am amazed that the series Angel was not mentioned here. Although not a movie – it is a good series.

  150. Dave Saunders

    Hmmm what about Forever Knights original pilot movie Rick Springfield (commonly known as Nick Knight). Probably worse known for a horrible 1980s pop song (but wrote other good tracks I confess). Vampire cop B Grade movie – that turned into a really good A Grade TV Series! Nick Knight was one of the best although slightly cheesy looking back at the 1980s.

  151. Ira

    I saw a double feature horror in Christchurch Tivolli theatre New Zealand in 1958, first film was Ït the terror from beyond space”, the second was a vampire film, he got killed in an old mine at the end, he was pushed into a hole and an old bit of timbre pieced his heart, does anyone out there know what the name of it was?

  152. Tiffany

    I liked the selection you had and was glad The Lost Boys and Van Helsing was on there. I really like those movies. :)

  153. Stephen

    Perhaps Strange Things happen at Sundown is worth a mention, not least for the scene(s) in which Countess Bathory appears as the rather houseproud American wife of Vlad the Impaler, now scraping a living as a mob hitman.
    I think that Diane may well be thinking of Tale of a Vampire, starring Julian Sands and directed by Shimako Sato. Mixed reviews here, as for so many vampire films. Easily found.

  154. ElinHime

    Everyone with a love for vampires and drop dead beautiful men should see Moon Child.
    It’s on a close second place of the vampire movies i love the most, just after Intervju with the vampire.

    Love the Twilight books, but i have a bad feeling about the movie after i saw the trailer.

    For all you amine fans, dont miss the Hellsing series or ongoing OVA, Trinity Blood, Vampire Knight and Blood+

  155. inlovewithlastat

    interview with the vampire and queen of the damned and lost boys and lost boys 2 are the best movies EVER

  156. Mike

    Great list. I remember a classic horror movie as a teen called
    Black Sabbath. It was a triology of tales narrated by Boris Karloff , who also stars in the last feature titled “The Wurdulak” about a vampire who preys upon the blood of his
    loved ones.

  157. laue

    woah no way man queen of the damned had fucking legend music and cinematography and the acting was well-good. one of my favs.

  158. Schofield

    Of the above list of vampire movies which movie has got display of violence and sexual scenes

  159. Maria Schofield

    email me the list on this email address

  160. khaotique

    It would be lovely of you to add a separate area for recommendations seeing how much truly informative commentary was added. I would love to see a list anywhere, of all vamp & religious sci-fi films one day. I agree, I’m surprised many were not listed, like 30 days of night and more but I don’t remember the name of this one vamp film set in Russia but if anyone is able to remember the name of it, please post for me and everyone else to see. It wasn’t highly marketed at all, but the budget and quality was superior for an indie it was truly a brilliant film! Wishes on future list upgrades but regardless, grazie’ for sharing this and on all the feedback help as well. Best wishes, xx

  161. cris


    well i’m a huge fan of stephanie meyer books,but siriously please get over it. It isn’t real don’t waste your time daydreaming about


    Just saying:)

  162. cris

    I agree with laue Queen of Damed was awsome the guy totally looks like a vimpire but it’s a little to much science fiction.Still awsome!

    If you guys have another good movie (rather then twilight know about that one) e-mail me at

  163. Charles

    Hey, what about Plan 9 From Outer Space. It should be in the list of the best simply for being the worst :-)

  168. Vlad 2000

    p.s. has anyone seen a movie from 1960s or early 1970s that starts off with Dracula going to a ball and dancing with a couple of sisters/cousins or friends. One of the girls gets bitten and they try a blood transfusion to stop her from dieing. There is a scene futher in the movie where by this time Dracula has turned 2 more girls into vampires and the go to 3rd girls room to make her and her boyfriend/Gaurdian into Vampires I was 5-12 years old at the time and as this is over 30 years ago sorry for the scetchy details

  169. Badlist

    I movie from 1922 is number one? I know you have to respect the classics, but that is just wrong. How do you put buffy the vampire slayer above queen of the damned? Or on here at all? I didn’t agree with list very much.

  170. Stan

    “Habit” should definitely be on the list. It’s a lot better than Dracula 2000 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s also better than Vampyros Lesbos. “Count Yorga, Vampire” should’ve also been on the list.

  171. z3len

    Does someone recognize this film?

    I remember watching a vampire movie about 15 years ago. I only remember that the movie begins with a scene where a blonde girl is running on a field just before the sunset and a carriage is following her.

    I’d be so glad to know which movies this is!!!

  172. Cheyenne

    Twilight for the win. That series will become the best vampire movies of all time.

  173. joe

    hey everybody i been writing down all the movies i have and saw so yea so far i saw 154 movies and wrote 587 vampire movies i will watch all 587 movie then when i get them ohh if u like vampires or wearwolfs go to if it dose no work do it on google it should pop up and i did watch most of these movie here on the list

    &, to make it weigth.. watch the freakin movie and then say what u didn’t like about it, don’t be lame telling me that i don’t know a thing and that it sucks.. bcause it doesnt ;)

  179. kristen

    I really love the twilight books and I’ve been enthralled with vampire stories and books for a while but I was raised mormon and was shielded from a lot so can some other twilight fans recommend some of these movies that a twilight fan would like?? I love van helsing, interview with a vampire and underworld too. dont like too much cheesiness and fake gore though.

  180. Jeremy Cullen

    The Twilight Seriers Is the best! Thanks for the the list. now you now what movies i will be looking for! i have always been obsesive over vampires my whole life.lata

  181. tiffany

    That kind of sucks as far as lists go. Half of them are completely lame- and the other half i have never even heard of. The only ones that should even be on here are queen of the damned (even though it strayed from the book) fright night 1, Nosferatu (both versions), Dracula, Abbot and Costello (the one where they meet Dracula) interview with the vampire, blade (the first two), Blacula, vampire in Brooklyn, Bram Stokers Dracula, van Helsing, underworld, lost boys, Salem’s lot (the original not the TNT special version) , from dusk till dawn…. (Not in that order but you get the picture.)
    there also movies like moms got a date with a vampire, and the little vampire- it’s not the graphics or weather it makes you wet your pants it’s the purity of the vampire and whether or not they can fulfill the myths of ordinary vampires. Bordello of Blood- OMG is you serious. It’s a lust filled sex addicts DREAM!!! It has very little to do with vampires- other than the fact that they ‘claim’ to be them. You can’t wear sunscreen and be able to go into the sun- and that’s NOT how you kill a vampire for real!
    Some of the older films were better, they didn’t deviate as much from the traditional form of a vampire- Abbot and Costello was an amazing series and should DEFINITELY make the cut. Although I think Queen of the Damned should have a better spot on the list it is a shame- it is nothing like the book however it at least sticks to the traditions and that is the most important thing after all…. When my kid gets addicted to vampires like I did when I was 8 then I want him/her to know what a vampire TRULY is, not some frilly fru fru creature-
    And as for the anime on the list- I love anime and all- but come on? Vampire knight didn’t even make the cut- (although it’s a tv show not a movie- but still….) I haven’t seen the anime so I cant be a fair judge on that but I will as soon as I see them.
    Buffy should definitely made a better place on the list- I was a die hard Buffy fan since I was 8 that’s how I fell in love with vampires…. Well that and watching interview with the vampire a million times- Buffy sticks to most of the traditions and for the traditions it breaks it makes up sufficient excuses as to why they can be broken. (although the rules tended to get broken more in the show-)
    And as for Twilight it is

  182. Kenneth Rorie

    loved your site and agree with most of your choices but what about “Mark of the Vampire” with Lionel Barrymore and Bela? For me, it was one of the scariest of them all.

  183. LadySaphir

    I’m wondering if Twilight the movie will have a place in this list when it’ll come out.

    I also agree that Mel Brooks comedy about Dracula should be in the list, somewhere. It was too funny to not be mentionned.

    Still, it’s a good thing to have this list, some good movies are suggested ;)

  184. mish whalen

    where did you get all the cool framegrabs?

  185. antimusick

    where would “Let the Right One In” be place on this list?

  186. Kasper Hviid

    Great list, but I’m mortified that there are no mention of “I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle”. It’s a classic if there ever was one.

  187. Vamp-Lover

    Umm hello? Twilight (2008)!!

  188. skidmark


  189. Ashlee

    they missed out lost boys 2- the tribe.. now that movie is good :D lol

  190. POP4EVER


  191. emilia

    twilight 2008?
    you have got to be kidding. that cannot ever, ever go on this list. so, the list has some serious serious dodgy points, what is with queen of the damned being put so low??!!
    but twilight is soppy teenage romantic shit. and i’m a teenager. that movie is just one great big epic fail in the books of any true vampire devotee.

  192. casie

    any romance movies?
    whoever wants that try watching twilight nice movie and read the twilight saga seriouse

  193. casie

    its mostley about a love between a 2 guys one is the vampire and the other one is a werewolf and they are enemies and the girl is stuck in the middle of them. she has to overcome the problems of being with a vamp.—————————————who will she at the end fall for the vamp or werewolf?????!!!!–and in the movie what happens the girl bella when she goes out to the house of her lover the vamp edward?

  194. Saya050

    should put twilight up their as number 1 or 2 maybe 3 but ur pushing it

  195. jenn

    Twilight is the best ever 1!!!

  198. Sophie

  199. the real vamprie

  200. nai

    damn !!! i love this site…hell this is so cool… wanna taste my blood? lmao

  201. nai

    can anyone tell me any other vampire movie like underworld or twilight? a vampire family movie?

  202. Alysha

    Hello, what about the best book and movie of all time??
    Twilight!! #1

  203. jason finger

    listen up! the best vampire movie of all time is interview with the vampire……………………lets leave it at that! or else!


    Totally Forgot 30 Days of Night! Hello, and Lost Boys: The Tribe! Don’t Forget Twilight!

  205. Dracula20XX

    Queen of the damned should be removed it wasnt really a vampire movie more of a demonic obsetion movie

  206. Spitwave

    Twilight #1 ?? Come on now.. it wasn’t THAT good.. it was ok, but far from even being a #1 Vampire movie. Hell Interview with a vampire was a lot better than Twilight, and The lost boys…geez girls, i know Edward is cute but god.. get over it a little and make some sense.

  207. Spitwave

    True Blood, the TV series is good too. Season too to come in August next year.

  208. nai

    to be honest twilight is real good… @ spitwave i think ur jelous with edward cox every girl is talking about him…not you…lol… he is handsome and also the movies was real awosome…

  209. Spitwave

    Oh yeah im a girl jealous of a guy… and to be honest, no not really. I enjoy my privacy rather than having some creeps follow me every time i get out of the house :P

  210. Desdemona De Lioncourt

    I agree with Spitwave…I’m 17 and a twilight fan but come on that movie was complete crap compared to the movies on this list. And Lestat is way more gorgeous than Edward can ever hope to be (Stuart Townsend was perfect even if that movie is trash, and Interview was amazing as well). The guy who played Edward wasn’t even hot, and the effects were terrible. It was entertaining, but come on, there are way better vampires out there than Edward Cullen. And he didnt even have fangs (reread the novel–no fangs, and no aversion to sunlight except for the sparkling bit. wtf?).

  212. David

    This has got to be one of the worst assembled lists of vampire films ever created.

  213. Typhy

    Twilight should be on the bottom of the list, alright. But the list doesn’t stretch into thousands and cover every movie ever, from worst to best.

  214. alyssa

    dude seriously they need to update this article what about twilight it has to be at least no. ten or nine or eight or seven or six or five or four or three otwo ONE

  215. Munirah

    I totally agree with all those that says Twilight the movie sucks to the core. It’s so Buffy – Angel relationship only Angel (David Boreanaz) is hotter!

    Comparing twins effect and twilight, twins effect is better.

  216. Frankie

    TWILIGHT???? it was number 1!!! : )

  217. Belial9

    Excellent List! And thankyou to everyone else who has added extra ones also! Great to see so many in one place! Also, there’s another great one that I’d like to share with you all called NETHERBEAST INCORPORATED IMDB Link
    This movei’s got Jason Mewes in it (for those of you who have seen the Jay & Silent Bob movies, -all very good) but aside from that, what makes this move good, is that it’s entire concept was exceptionally well done! I don’t want to spoil too much of the movie for you, mut it’s a must see!! Enjoy!!

  218. Buffalo

    I’m sorry but that uge list is a f***ing joke without “Let the Right One In”. Every vampiremovie produced from now on will be compared with that genre bender masterpiece. It’s def top 20. For me top 5. And why will it be remade by Hollywood?

  219. joe

    hey everyone there is a new movie comeing out u heard of underworld. the movies called underworld riase of the warewolf

  220. joe

    i dont know how to spell the other word for wear wolf

  221. joe

    oh and since i did not have internet for 3 days merry christmas

  222. Kim

    *****TWILIGHT**** But I think it jumped around to much!!! I read the book and their was a lot of it to fit it all nice and neatly into a movie!!!! Lets hope that ****NEW MOON*** Will be more detailed and run more smoothly!!! And I really hope that they do all “FOUR BOOKS” into a movie and not just the first three!!! BREAKING DAWN was the best book of the whole series!!! It would be really interesting to see that book turned into a movie!!!

  223. Phillip

    TWILIGHT the movies did not depict vampires for what the original vision of a common vampire is

    i mean come on fangless vampire that “sparkles”? what?

  224. Toby me

    TWILIGHT the movies did not depict vampires for what the original vision of a common vampire is

    i mean come on fangless vampire that “sparkles”? what?

  225. Toby me

  226. aquamarina56

    Omg, I remeber my mother bringing van halsing home when I was in grade 3, I loved the movie than, but didn’t understand it, I watched it again, and it’s the best ever!!!

    Thhanks for posting :)

    OH and another really great vampire movie is “The Little Vampire”, it’s with jonathan lipnick or something like that, I love that movie as well….
    Thanks again :)

  227. Sarah

    Films we are – i think – hard to keep track – n that you’d wanna watch if you are a vampire nerd like me:

    Daughter of Darkness
    Night Cop
    The Curse of the 7 golden vampires
    Vampire Circus
    Countess Dracula
    Zoltan hound of Dracula
    Vampire the masquerade – Blodlines (TV Series)
    True Blood (TV Series)
    Last Man on Earth
    The Thirst
    Mr Vampire trilogy
    The Hamiltons
    Nattens Engel

    Sweeden’s making some shit hot vampire flicks – yes ‘let the right one in is a must see, n so is frostbiten, but to PEN – no, noone stole from fostbitten, if anything it was the other way around. both great films, but the graphic novel 30 days of night is based on, is older than the film frostbitten.

    Great list guys :-)

    Happy NY

  228. crystal

    all this movies are crap…
    there the worst movie in the history…
    twilight is the best one…

  229. Ness

    Where is the film Twilight???? ;)

  230. Stephanie

    twilight sucked balls! (the movie)

  231. amber


  232. QJessica

    Twilight was amazing!!!

  233. tiffany



  234. obviously

    “Let the Right One In”!!! It should be in the top Five!

  235. morbius

    who ever liked twilight is a heavly ignorant vampire movie enthusist, it is plain and simple they defy far to many vampire laws to be vampire. it is as dark as the undead betsy books. so if ur a teen girl into pale guys fantasy concepts and averted by all things vampire or even gothic this movie is the masterbatory aid for u. go fuck yourself with a crosifix twilight fans.

  236. Martina

    Bram’s Stoker Dracula is the best vampire movie ever!! With no doubt!
    Twilight is also OK, you can not compare the two, but is really a cute movie,not a frightening one…and yeah – Edward Cullen is very sexy :)

  237. morbius

    Martina… kings to you for identifying bram stoker’s dracula as it was ment to be; a “real” vampire movie, the best of the best to be specific. But it saddens me that u do not discredit twilight as vampire film. kings to u stillp; kings to you

  238. sady cullen

    why isnt twillight here?………….it suppose to get the top spot…………!!..ooh nd also let the right one in…………this is ancient history!!

  239. morbius

    vampire films are cultest or horror films, there are exceptions but they can barly be called vampire films. underworld, vanhelsing, the legue of exstrodanery gentalmen; these are all action movies with fantasy concepts feturing vampires and made on modest budgets. while entertaining these moovies are not vampire films in the sence of the sub genre of cultest film. by the by twilight dosnt even make the rank of these atempts at film containing vampires; Twilight isnt even an atempt, it is a the film and popcultures idustry mustorbation of a halfbaked book series writen buy some1 who didnt do their reserch on europian foke-law, all twilight the movie was ment to do was make a quick buck in a overly impresionable generation that dosnt have the great sub-cultur movements of the past. twilight is the celluloid crossover to the capitalist based media driven “scr-emo” movement that was ultamatly generated by fat cats in a number of industries trying to create a new consumer audiance for specific subculture insinuated goods. in short fuck emoisim, mordern times anti-anarchy ways, the fat cats and most of all twilight. TWILIGHT ISNT A VAMPIRE MOVIE IT IS FESTERING SHIT JAMED INTO A FILM CANISTER

  240. schreiner

    i haft to edmit there are a lot of good movies among your list but some of the are placed wrong i saw that one call vamp last night number 60 on the list so not worth it it was like so lame like in the end the vampire dies from sunlight and becomes nothing but bones. but her right arm (even tho its a skeleton arm) has just enoghf power to give the heroes the finger before diying completly, thats just so ruening the move even more.

    i love your list but there are realy some misplaced ones among it.

    since you have a list of vampire movies mabey u should make a list of their oppesits the wearwolfs, that would be cool, i just love wearwolfs.

  241. Nina

    Sounds great, i haven’t seen a all of them, so I will try to rent some, or seek them on internet. Watching vampires movies to end the vacations, yesss =]
    Oh, and about Twilight… The main idea of the story is cute, i admit it BUT, the movie itself is… kinda… Lame, sorry. And yea, I approve what morbius said, Twilight isn’t a vampire movie…at all. And, the principal “vampire” in it doesn’t even have the vampire appearance (at least, not in my definition). Oh, sorry, I meant: none of them did. Well, I think it was a teen movie, for teenies or Robert Pattinson’s groupie (or Edward Cullen if u prefer, ’cause most of them doesn’t even know the actor’s real name).

  242. morbius

    the statmnet of werwolves being the opposit to vampires is a misconception brought on by the films featuring the ravishing kate beckinsale. vampirisom is the stealing of life essance to unnatraly extend ones own life beyound death, it isnt neciserily the whole bat thing (proof being norsvaitue and the wolf vamp in bram stokers dracula). and i would say a human cat would be more oposite to a wolf than a human bat.

    by the by thank u nina

  243. Shaddin

    Twilight, is and I’m not saying this as an opinion it’s really true I saw it on and a bunch of other places, that it was the MOST successful vampire movie of all time. Check, it even made more than Rush Hour 3!! So all of you out there who say it sucks, just look at the numbers and then talk. It’s still gonna make more, cuz in most places in Europe it hasn’t been released yet.

  244. Not placed

    All right Twilight is number 1

  245. Nina

    Still not agree. Anyway, media are mostly bullshitting things…. do you really thing that the person who wrote the article saw the hundreds of REAL vampires movies, and then to be able to say it was THE BEST vampire film ever? Their article are based on NUMBERS. They are only saying that the NUMBERS are bigger than the other movies. Take an example on Nosferatu. Do you think a movie in the ’20s would make as much money and fans as today movies… Twilight might be in the tops, comparing to other most known movie of the late years. On, c’mon, they don’t know much about each category of films, only on the overalls, and populars thinggy… Go do some research, I still NOT agree about Twilight being #1 vampire movie… geez

  246. Ashes

    I agree with u nina there only showing the # of people to actually but tickets to watch it, and that doesnt make it the best vampire movie ever. But honestly how can anyone say what the Best movie is? you cant because its all a matter of opinion. Someone can say that Twilight is the best vampire movie ever if they want to because its there opinion, and some one else can say that the 2000 dracula movie was the best vampire movie ever. Either way there is no saying what the best movie is because its all based on opinions. so they based it on #’s and in that sence twilight is one of the best vampire movies yet.

  247. joe


  248. tytti

    Must say, there were only two people in this debate I could agree with, Matthew and Crystal. Thank you for you two, I thought I was one of the kind.

    In my opinion, the best of the best really are Bram Stoker’s Dracula by Coppola and the Interview with a Vampire. Just the few words to describe them and all the other wonderful vampire movies which still are waiting to be done – dark, sensual and delicate.

    Twilight sounds interesting, but I’m afraid it’s too teen movie for me :)

  249. schreiner

    i agree with ashes and nina there are only some of the greatest movies and they are missing a lot of realy good movies

  250. Heather

    Thanks! This really helped me out. I’m doing a research paper for school and I needed the top ten Vampire movies… Thanks again!!

  251. Derrick Dos Santos

    Definitely a strong list.

    I myself am creating a Top 50 all-time Vampire Movie list.

    I must, however, say that it is a shame that the rankings were decided solely through the averaged ratings of Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, and lack a kind of personal input.

    I just wanted to point out that the Spanish version of Dracula [1931] was missing.
    The importance in letting you know this, is that many think that it is simply the same Bela Lugosi version dubbed in Spanish, which is not the case. The Spanish version of Dracula is a completely different film, featuring an entirely Spanish-speaking cast, and a different director. Both, however, were filmed on the very same set, with the English version’s crew and cast filming early in the morning, while that of the Spanish version would shoot in the evening. Many believe it surpasses that of the English version…

    I do not think so.. as Bela Lugosi’s performance almost made a mockery to that of Carlos Villarias’… but it is undeniable that it IS better in many ways; the cinematography for example was absolutely beautiful.. especially in the first 20 minutes or so..

    I do realize that the addition of this film to your list in its current format would require that it has a rating at both Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb… which it lacks. It WAS rated on IMDb at 7.1/10… but Rotten Tomatoes has failed at doing so.

    I am not suggesting that you refine your list entirely, nor asking that you should change anything at all… but simply letting you know of this most important exclusion from your list.

  252. Eddie

    Twilight is sooo gay man! 90210 gay. You want hardcore vampires then Near Dark is the shit, should be in the top ten…#1 on my list anyway. I have to say Queen of the Damned really should not be on any list… well maybe the “All Time Piece of Shit” movie list…Twilight is #1 on that list though.

  253. mariss

    Dracula: The Dark Prince is also a good movie : )

  254. JuBlond

    Heyy…if you guys can help me i be so gratefull.
    someone knows were i can find the movie: The Vampire Lovers (1970) ???
    i just saw once,but i love that movie
    if someone could tell me were i can download or something it will be great.
    thank you and sorry for bad english(i’m from Brazil)
    ow,and here is my e-mail,if you have an answer:

  255. Bailey

    omg, what about twilight? that should be number one by now .. *grr*

  256. Emy

    Omg The lost boys should be closer to #1 than that!!!
    I saw a couple of these movies and they are great,
    but soon you should add twilight in the list!
    I love twilight, lost boys, interview with the vampire,
    dracula, and near dark!!!

    PS. Eddie twilight is SO not gay! IT ROCKS!!!
    And yes Near dark is really awsome!

  257. Michael

    What moron could possibly say Twilight is a top 70 vampire movie? You a fool for suggesting it oughta be in the top 70, and should be banned from watching vampire movies for saying it oughta be #1. What kind of gay vampire movie is Twilight? Incredibly gay. It’s not exciting whatsoever and is too soppy of a freaking teeny love story. It’s not even like a good late 90s teen movie, but the gay Disney shit of the 2000s. It’s kids shit.

  258. kaitlyn

    Moonlight the tv show is the best. i want it to come back. i think it was 2007 or 2008 when it was on tv

  259. morbius

    michael you rock but i think the banning of vampire movies would work against our case; if “they” do not experiance anything more than the festering tween crap of twilight ‘they’ will just continue to be ignorant of what it means to be a real vampire movie. these people are overly impretionable and dont know anything beyond the shit surved on a plater called mainstream media. yes their ignorance is agrovating and one may wish to hold the true pleasure a vampire film from such ignoramie but we are simply perpetuating the ignorance and there for creating more of the cultest film novices( or at least decreasing the stream of new found cultest film fans). in short if u dnt let people ebcome informed there will be more uninformed opintions made by a growing group of ignorance created by you the with holder of information. p.s twilight sucks ass as a vampire movie which is mainly becouse it is based on a trully shity book, and i think u made a good point of the new generation films; by the by i think ur confussing tween(another fucked by product of current times)film-e.g high school musical, and teen film -e.g death proof.

  260. April

    It makes me sad to read people clump Twilight in the same category as Interview with the Vampire and the classics. Ugh, no thank you.

    However. For those of you even putting Queen of the Damned into the same league with Interview, please, for the love of God, STOP. Queen of the Damned was written by people who spent -maybe- all of forty minutes skimming through The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned, and then deciding their idea of ~goth! vampires who are oh, so lonely was best. It wasn’t. The books tend to get a little boring and harpy at times, but the series didn’t deserve that quick-edited, piece of trash tarnishing it’s good name. (Even if Anne did that later with Blackwood Farm…)

    If Twilight is added to this list, I will cry. I won’t deny that it’s going to be number one, for THIS generation, but that doesn’t mean it’s -good-. Quality over quantity, Stephenie Meyer, quality over quantity.

    The Lost Boys: The Tribe doesn’t deserve to be on this list, either. If you like the Lost Boys and you’ve yet to see The Tribe, do yourself a favor and just pop The Lost Boys into your DVD, watch it again. I’m a huge Lost Boys (and David, of course) fan and I would have loved to support the film, if it wasn’t so -bad-. Alas, that’s just how things work.

    I agree that I can’t understand why Buffy the Vampire Slayer the series wasn’t on this list. As someone else mentioned, the show came up with so much of it’s own lore, and it really helped bring the interest in the supernatural back. It was fantastically written and acted, humorous and witty and frightening all rolled into one. With seven seasons and a spin-off series on it’s list of achievements, all I can ask is how can this show NOT be on this list, or at the very least, the honorable mentions? How disappointing.

  261. April

    Oh, and I’m completely forgetting the season eight of Buffy provided by Dark Horse Comics in the list of achievements, as well as just the comics in general. Ah, well. My bad.

  262. morbius

    i would have asked you to marry me april; but Buffy… realy, the tv followers i simply thought were sad people with no tast(tv is the lowest form of entertainment) and the comics are the nastiest stories pediled out by dark horse even more so than pigions from hell. but the idea in you articulated in 4.30 post is exactly what i’v been trying 2 say yet it seems very few grasp the concept

  263. Adam

    Mr Vampire is the best Vamp film ever…. not even on your list… boo!!!!

  264. Eloravaer

    Twilight is another adaptation of a well written book that doesn’t do the author or story line justice. I can respect the opinion of vampire fans who feel the “traditional” vampire presence is not captured in the over-all look of the Cullen coven. However, I appreciate Stephanie Meyers’ new take on what a modern vampire would evolve to be over the course of the many millenniums they can supposedly live. The reason I’m making this argument is that I am an ardent fan of the tetralogy that is Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. They’re very well written, but Twilight, directed by Catherine Hardwicke, failed to impress me. The writing for the film, even the casting in some instances, was not very well thought out. I have higher hopes for New Moon with Chris Weitz as the director. Great list, by the way. I have some shopping to do, it would seem… :) Happy Saturday!

  265. Eloravaer

    P.S. Hate to be a pain in the ass, but… It’s called Spell Check. It’s widely accepted as one of the easiest ways to keep yourself from looking like an imbecile on comment threads and forums across the world. I hear it’s free and easily accessible from any email program. Some of you might be well served to look into such a thing.

  266. katie

    WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO twilight is a wonderful movie and i loved it but i have to agree it shouldn’t be up in the top spot…it was nothing like the books and the acting sucked a little there is better movies then twilight but Edward was sexy…

  267. EdwardCullen'sSecretLover

    I was extremely dissapointed to find out that Twilight was not on this list. All of these movies (well, most) portray vampires to be the bad guys when they clearly don’t have to; they can drink animal blood. They are not dark creatures and what makes a vampire story good is when the vampire tries to deny his/her nature and clings to his/her humanity. I also like stories where the female is the vampire, not the male. And also where they sparkle in the sun instead of burning and they can’t sleep at all and they live forever and they can’t eat human food and they have extremely pale skin and are extremely strong and their skin is indestructable and granite-hard, so there is no way a “stake” can kill them….only other vampires, and werewolves and werecats, can kill vampires (by tearing them to shreds and burning the pieces…if the pieces are not burned then the vampire can put him/herself back together again).

    All of the movies on here SUCK compared to Twilight. But the vampires in Twilight are the real and true beautiful bloodsuckers! Go vampires! Good guy vampires! Vegetarian vampires!

  268. AliceCullenIsReal

    The person who said “Twilight is sooo gay” posted under the name “Eddie”…HILARIOUS!!! You basically called yourself gay, Eddie. EDWARD CULLEN! Twilight is NOT gay. Twilighbt is not cheesy. Just because Edward falls in love does not make him less of a vampire. It is so deep that Edward hates himself and what he is and is so selfless and tries to deny his nature by drinking animal blood and he has a family and Twilight proves that vampires can still love each other instead of being nomads and also there are werewolves in Twilight; vampires and werewolves are mortal enemies but they work together to save Renesmee from the Volturi…Renesmee is a half Vampire (Bella’s daughter), and Jacob Black, a werewolf who used to be in love with Bella who is in love with Edward, imprinted on Renesmee. Imprinted means he is destined to be with Renesmee. Twilight is the best, most powerful, and most enlightening vampire romance in the world. Eddie, Twilight is NOT gay. Although, you are basically just calling yourself gay, and Edward Cullen is NOT GAY. Ok? Twilight is beautiful. I am Twilight.

  269. CalliopeCullenSylvers

    Spitwave, Twilight touches issues that most vampire stories fail to address. Most of us, or at least I, like Twilight not because of Edward’s outer cover (i.e. his attractiveness) but because of his moral-based-masochistic-ness and how he thinks that he doesn’t have a soul. One other person commented here dissing twilight…elina or something like tht.
    Anyways, Twilight is about mastering self-control; Bella is the ultimate test in Edward’s self-control – being around Bella puts Edward in physical pain but he still chooses to be around her and he doesn’t harm her….in fact, he saves her life multiple times. Against all odds, they fall in love. Bella represents a willingness to do everythinh and sacrifice anything for one you love. She sacrifices her life to save her mother in the first book, and eventually plans to sacrifice her humanity to be with Edward forevermore. Twilight is an important transition in vampire lore. The Cullens – “vegetarian” vampires – are portrayed more like a group of superheroes than a group of “dark creatures” – in Twilight, vampires aren’t night creatures; they don’t burn in the sun…they sparkle (therefore, no one can call Twilight cliche. this is a new development in vampire myth and folklore). Another message in Twilight is that everyone messes up sometimes, loses control, but it will still be okay in the end. True love is about two people being willing to make safrices for each other. Also, “mortal enem ies” – vampires and werewolves – joining forces and accepting each other to combat a common enemy is such an obvious metaphor for World War 2. Also, the Volturi (the vampire government) is a metaphor for corruptive, powerhungry governments.
    Don’t say that Twilight vampires are not real vampires or that they are sissy vampires because just because they are morally strong does not mean that they are not physically strong; no, Twilight isn’t the vampires religions were thinking of when they ban people to talk about, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a potential to be just as dark and monstreous….they are; the Cullens and Denali’s are 10% of the vampires in Twilight and are an anomaly among the vampires; most of the vampires give in to their natural predator instincts and hunt humans…Jane, James, Victoria, Aro, Laurent, Demetri, Peter, to name a few. Also, don’t say they aren’t as strong, because Twilight vampires have indestructible granite-like skin that cannot be pierced, much less staked. HAHA, “staking” cannot kill a vampire. yeah right. Sun doesn’t kill vampires either. Only werewolves, werecats, and other vampires can. (=

  270. CalliopeCullenSylvers

    To Nina: Twilight IS a vampire movie. Just because they don’t look like what you think vampires should look like….i.e., having the “vampire appearance”….doesn’t mean they aren’t vampires. They are pale, extremely attractive, have razor sharp teeth, sparkle in the sun, and are extremely strong. You have no way of knowing whether the old vampire movies are what vampire movies are what vampires are supposed to look like, or if Twilight, the new vampires, is. Who knows, maybe there are more than one species of vampires. You can’t just try to discredit Twilight as a vampire movie. Twilight is a vampire move; it is about vampires; Stephanie Meyers said that they were vampires so they are. And Edward does look like a vampire. And how DARE you say that Alice doesn’t look like a vampire? And Jasper?!?!?!!? Comeon, Nina. Stop it. Twilight is a vampire movie. You can’t just say that its NOT. You are a spawn of the devil.

    emilia said, “but twilight is soppy teenage romantic shit. and i’m a teenager. that movie is just one great big epic fail in the books of any true vampire devotee.”
    What, emilia, do you think vampires are real or something? Well, I do to, so don’t insult me by saying Twilight is not a legitimate vampire story. You’re just saying its soppy because I bet you’re gothic and depressed; its not shit just because its romance. It is not cheesy at all…read my two adjacent posts explaining why. It is not just for teenagers, either. It is for all ages.

    ‘Twilight ‘ makes u fall in love with enter a world where good virtues are not only human but some vampire instinct too.Its one of the best fictions I have ever read in my life.Very well detailed all characters come to life,especially Edward cullen, portray as already said , his fight with himself to maintain human instincts being a vampire and be around Bella all the time protecting her really makes one fall in love …….Edward cullen and Bella.
    Profound thanks to Stephanie Meyers for giving us ‘Twilight’.

  273. Tarinya

    Hey guys! i’m looking for vamp-movies which are similar to twilight or moonlight (series) e.g. movies with a bit of romance and vamps that don’t burst to flames in the sun or are ridiculously afraid of holy water/crucifixes.
    can anyone give me some recommendations?

  274. cassidy

    i think that twilight should be number 2 at least because it is a vampire movie!!

  275. BETHANY

    TWILIGHT IS TOTALLY #1 OF ALL TIME OUT OF ANY MOVIE ON THE PLANET !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  276. Zack

    Hy 2 all i’m from romania…and i want 2 say that twilight suck’s and the best movie of vampire is Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Interview with the Vampire Best actors best story and respects the rullez of the original volum of dracula
    P.S. Vampire story gives a bad name to our history.So please don’t say that dracula is a part of our history…Vlad Tepes was a great man and a grea king to our country he fought the turks for cristi……
    With all respect twilight comes in number 90 to me….doesn’t respect the book and it’s more of a pussy-movie…. no horror-movie at all!!!!It’s a great romantic story BUT NOT A VAMPIRE MOVIE!!

  277. jackie

    twilight should now definitly be on this list…

  278. I love edward cullen/Robert Pattison

    I loved twilight it was the best!!In other movies people say
    vampires are bad but to me If they existed they would be good
    well except them sucking human blood.I think new moon will
    even be beter.

  279. Melody

    Question? When I was a kid in the 70′s I use to watch this old vampire movie in black and white. About a girls school. I think the girl’s name was Nancy(?). One of the teachers used hypnosis ( I think) on Nancy and she would transform into a vampire. There was some type of amulet involved. I remember the transformation of her face was shown several time during the movie. It was real creepy. Of course I was only 10 at the time. The movie aired on Svengoolie. Anybody have any idea what that movie was? I would love to get my hands on it.

  280. debbie

    nice list info. Found titles I did not know of. I grew up watching b/w and then also finally color films. My hubby is so into all scifi films. I also have seen the newer films due to my kids as they grew up…such as lost boys, interview with a vampire, etc. There is a film I remember watching in the early to mid- 70′s, but was probably made in the early 60′s, in color, and pretty sure was a europeon made. I can not remember the title, it was something to the effect of,either, house of blood, or hotel of blood, or on the other side, blood hotel, or blood house. I remember the vamp bit a woman, she wound up dead, then a vampiress, and they found here glass top coffin empty one night, so they waited for her to return, and once she was in the coffin they drove a wooden stake into her heart. Then I remember the very end where the original vampire returned to his coffin in the ground very close to dawn and was too late, and the sun hit him and he turned to ash with his right arm and hand up and he had a ring on one finger that was still there after all that was left was his skeleton. does anyone know the movie was I am talking about. I remember that the women dress was bustiea? and huge puffy skirted dresses, and men seemed to always have suits and tye’s or maybe even tux’s. So setting was in the 50′s to early 60′s maybe. anyway’s as far as the list goes, to me it doesn’t really matter who’s on first, or what’s on second, because it’s gonna be different for each person. I’ve been watching vampire, werewolf, mummy, etc. movies for over 45 years, so, number 1, is going to change for me all the time. if any body has any info please share. thx

  281. Tanya

    Oh God…I swear the amount of Twilight fangirls on here…

    ‘Oh, I only like the kind of vampires that SPARKLE even though Stephenie Meyer never actually gave a reason WHY they would sparkle.’

    ‘Hell, forget years of widely accepted vampire mythology, research, and uh…stuff you learn in basic History (the banks failing in the Great Depression yet Rosalie gets to live in a nice house because her father works in a bank.)
    Those things totally don’t apply to how I want my vampires to be. Oh…and humans should probably all be seen as complete idiots except for my self-insert Beautiful Swan (even though she’s totally not special or beautiful at all. She’s so plain. Seriously. A bunch of human guys (including one of her teachers) just like her because ‘she’s something new to look at’) because I can’t have her acting like normal humans…humans are too boring. That’s why I’m anti-human. And she shouldn’t be the least bit scared of my 107 year old sparkly, controlling, stalker vampire (because ‘stalking is awesome!!’) because he’s hot and she loves him after three weeks of knowing him and then they eventually get married, Bella’s changed (and since she’s no longer human she can finally feel like she’s Edward’s equal,) and has a Mary Sue baby which absolutely works the love triangle because now I can pair Jacob with Bella’s daughter!!! :D And it all came to me in a dream! ‘

    I hope Cirque Du Freak isn’t made into a crappy movie.

  282. twilight fan

    i don’t see twilight!!!
    and i totally love that movie !!!

    twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!! twilight!!!

  283. Twihard_Fanpire4ever

    I’m offended
    They forgot Twilight
    I must know when this site was made
    Obviously before Stephenie (the genius) Meyer invented the new Vampire breed and one person in particular, Mr Edward Anthony Mason Cullen!

    Twilight may have gotten horrible reviews as a movie, I being a Twilighter agree, But the book is far superior to the horrific job Catherine Hardewick did.

    There has to be a list for best Vampire books ever published, yes yes Bram Stoker would be first, but followed very closly by Twilight in my opinion.


  284. Twihard_Fanpire4ever

    Message for Eddie:

    obviously we do not want hardcore vampires, we want Edward Cullen and Jasper Hale! (for the Twilight guyz, we also want Alice and the gorgeous Rosalie!)

    You can go on ad have your list Eddie, but we will always have Twilight t the top of ours!

  285. Tanya Lynn

    It’s unbelievable that people truly think Twilight should be on this list of TOP vampire movies… and even more so, that it should be number 1??? Get serious, please!! I wouldn’t even put it on the list for the worst vampire movies because it doesn’t even deserve to be considered a vampire movie at all. Go put it on some list right next to “the Notebook” or some shit like that, not on a top vampire movie list… get real.

  286. Future Mrs. Cullen

    Twilight is so cool>how could anybody say that it is plain, wunt dare mayte> if u have read the books, you wunt say that!!! but i have to admit>the films are not as good as the books>>>>maybe if they put more of the book in the film, it would be perfect¬¬¬¬ i am like the biggest twilight fan>> 14 yrs old

  287. vampire movies rule

    im surprised blade, underworld, van helsing and interview with a vampire arent higher.
    plus twilight does deserve to be up there although it isnt traditional it does make people wish vampires exist which means its a vampire movie
    plus the sparkly thing with the sun is a good idea it is a better excuse than “oh i cant go out in the sun because despite the fact im immortal, strong, fast and generally indestructable, the sun kills me in seconds”

  288. the very annoying person

    2 micheal: if it werent against my religion, id give u a good hard slap across the face thatd leave a bruise! i think ur just jealous of edward cuz hes like way hot and u know ur ugly! so be a good little asshole and SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

    2 morbius: BEEP BEEP BEEP, WRONG! im not like that AT ALL. i find tan guys attractive, not pale 1s… robert pattinson just happens 2 be so hot that the paleness doesnt matter… and i dont have a sex drive, tyvm! dont assume that every person on the planet has shit left over from the stone age!

    2 Zack: nah, i dont think the dracula from that 1 is good looking. nope, he cant even be called “reasonably cute”.

    i find the history of romania fascinating, actually. if ur referring 2 the turkish, then thats not very nice cuz i have a friend and shes turkish and shes like the sweetest, most innocent person ever. shes a great friend and i know i can tell her anything and shell never tell anybody.

    i enjoyed twilight. i cant stand horror movies. my friend once told me that she thought i was a cereal (thats how u spell it, right?) killer. i told her that that was impossible, bcuz jason never screamed/and/or passed out from fear at horror movies or got night mares from watching star wars. it just doesnt work that way. and twilight can 2 be a vampire movie. just bcuz it doesnt have romance in it and it doesnt have as much horror as u would like, doesnt mean its a bad vampire movie. it just means that the person who wrote the script knows that there r ppl like me out there; ppl who r obsessed with vampires but hate horror movies. im very greatful 2 that made that movie bcuz i finally found a vampire movie that i can actually watch.

  289. Marty Carman

    Vampire films are simply halarious – Mamuwalda was trip (Blackula). Dark Shaddow and Barnabus Collins?

  301. SchnipkoGirl

    I must say that EdwardCullen’sSecretLover must not have seen Interview with a Vampire with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt… Pitt trys to live on the blood of animals and does his best to hold onto a trace of humanity…. until Twilight it was one of my favorites. :)

  302. mel

    Interview with the vampire is the best vamp movie out there for me!

  303. Buffalo

    To all other vampire and Twilight fans!

    Twilight is a damn good movie. It’s a romantic flick about a supernatural human being, like Spider Man or Superman. But it is NOT a movie about vampires. Why? First of all you have to ask yourself why we invented vampires in the first place. Wasn’t it because we wanted thrilling stories about a deadly threat towards humans?

    Of course it was. A vampire should bite, infect or kill humans, and drink their blood. It’s the essential idea about them. This is actually the basic problem, maybe the only one, with Twilight. The romance between Bella and Edward can’t exist if he kills people. The author had to make him to a “vegetarian”. To call Twilight a vampire movie is to degrade not only the vampire genre, but most of all, degrade Twilight itself.

    I like Twilight as a romantic story including a supernatural human being and a human girl. I hate it as a vampire story. Fans of Twilight: Don’t degrade Twilight to the vampire genre.

    Take a real vampire romance as an example. The vampire in “Let the Right One In”, Eli, is a 12 year old vampire child. She is a killing machine, a creature, a deadly threat, a real vampire. She kills five (5) more or less innocent people, including children, sucking their blood, twist their necks or even decapitate them. She is also inderctly responsible for 2 more deaths.

    Despite her horrific actions, she is actually our big hero, this films savior. That, my friends, is good storytelling including vampires. When we walk out from the theater we have to ask ourselves what kind of bestial reactions this movie actually generated. That’s horror.

    That’s the problem with Twilight, at least the first film in this serie. The author has to explain the new rules to justify her story. In “Twilight”, everything has to be distinctly shown and verbalized. “Let the Right One In” leaves it to the greatest tool you possess – your imaginative mind. That makes it the better film of the two and one of the best vampire movies ever.

    Hopefully your imaginative mind will be thrilled in the next Twilight movie. But then it has to leave the vampire genre. For me, it already has. That makes it better. I’m just waiting for all other Twilight-fans.

  304. Nina

    Be a Twilight fan, it’s ok. But don’t mention that movie as a vampire movie.
    That’s all i had to say.
    And… I’m not a fan.
    Pour les francophones, je dirais que c’t'un film cucul d’amour pour groupies pre-puberts.

  305. meg

    hahahah all these vamppire movies suck compaired to twilight
    its amazing not scary just plain amazing

  306. Aces

    Awsome list!!! thanks!

    Im going to use this list as a reference to look for vamp movies.

  307. Kylie

    U 4got about Twilight thats mi NO. 1

  308. Kendra

    Good Lord, I was SO SCARED Twilight was going to show up on this list…and as it wasn’t showing up the further I scrolled down, the more terrified I was that it was going to be in the freaking top ten or something.


    Now I want to check a few of these movies out.

  309. mitch42

    this list needs to be updated with “let the right one in”

  310. Cherubim40

    Have any of you seen “Let The Right One In”? Its a Swedish independent film, It’s pretty good. It reminded me of my time in Finland. I would have to agree with Buffalo on thier take.

  311. April


    Buffalo, you make some very good points, as did one other Twilight fan among the crowd here, but it seems most of the Twilight fans are too stupid to comprehend that this is not a vampire film and should not be included in the vampire genre. You’ll (as in whoever happens to read this) understand that I am only going by what I’m given, which, for the most part, is a bunch of teenagers with cutesy, Twilight-related usernames, screaming about how Twilight should be number one and resulting to name calling when someone insults their precious fandom. Kids, take debate and enrich yourselves on bettering your arguments.

    I think the whole point of the series was lost on them, save for how “hot” the leading actor was in the film. More’s the pity for Twilight fans who have some intelligence. You seem to be outnumbered greatly.

    Still, none of this inclines me to see the film, and I’m sorry, but I’m not reading a book that was written in six months. The concept sounds cheesy to me, and like I said: quality over quantity. That’s not to say I didn’t try; I did, and it wasn’t worth it, in my humble opinion.

    morbius, buddy — haha, sorry. I can’t help my love for Buffy, it was a show that my mother and I actually agreed on and would make sure to catch every week since it’s premiere. But I do and did understand the point you were trying to convey, and hey, it’ll always go unregistered with most people. The only hear what they want to hear, and they read what they want to read.

    Now, I came back for a title, so shh! Such distracting comments. ;)

  312. Paul

    Cool post! I’m now going to make it a personal mission of mine to watch everyone of thed :D

  313. Doug Robar

    30 Days Of Night??? should have been on in the top ten but it got screwed over by some old dude with elf ears..

  314. Zerg539

    OK even if you were to totally throw out the definition of “Vampire” and add Twilight to this lis it would rank somewhere in the neighborhood of 45. with a 6.1 IMDB, and a 5.4 RT score leaving you with an average of 5.75 so mediocre at best.

    Though seriously Queen of the Damned was that well liked by internet critics anonymous.

  315. mKosto

    You also forgot “El Santo vs Las Mujeres Vampiro”

  316. Sonia


  317. Sonia

    Wait I noticed this site was made in 2007.. ok Twilight was not out yet…. but now its time to UPDATE..

  318. Mss.Edward Cullen

    Twilight is the BEST vamp movie of all time!!!!!!!!
    Edward Cullen is SOOOOOOOOOOO HOT!

  319. Blessed

    Wow, this is an interusting list. I read through it and noticed only 4 movies i had seen, out of them all. Some of the pictures were totally gross, and unneeded. Other than that i liked it, it was pretty cool. Way better than the phony fick Twilight, but hey, im a sucker for old things.

  320. April

    One last thing, because I was considering this (and people have just continued to prove my point, coughsmirk)… you’re asking the editor to place TWILIGHT in front of the FIRST vampire movie EVER?

    In other words? Shut up. It’s not going to happen. Nosferatu DESERVES to be first, seeing as it WAS THE FIRST. Twilight, not so much. At all. Ever.

    Thank you.

  321. Tanya Lynn

    Alright, when I first commented on this board, I have to admit that I hadn’t yet seen Twilight. I hated the concept right from the beginning and that made me not ever want to see it. So, I sat down and watched it. Well I have to say I was wrong to think it was Terrible. Truth is, it was far worse. I couldn’t even get through the first 20 minutes. To consider it a vampire movie really is down right ridiculous. Living off animal blood, walking around during the day, sparkling and having no fangs… thats not a vampire. Bear Grylls from Man vs. Wild has had a couple episodes where he’s drank animal blood for survival (and if you slapped some glitter on him, i’m sure he could pull off the sparkling effect as well ) my point being… thats hes never once called himself a vampire, right?
    However, I must say that I do have respect for the people who liked it and agree that it shouldn’t be considered a vampire movie. I just can’t believe how many others say it should be number one among ALL vampire movies. Have any of you ever seen another “vampire movie” besides twilight? Your all probably 10-12 years old, so I doubt it. Well in a couple years, when mommy lets you see a movie with a higher rating than pg-13, maybe you’ll realize the stupidity of your comments. And for the older girls who only want the movie to be #1 because of that douche bag edward…. please! Enough already!

  322. Niki

    Wow you have obviously spent alot of time getting up on your vampire knowledge… Have you ever been outside????
    Anyway I’m 23 “not just some silly little kid” & I thought Twilight was a refreshing break from the usual “blood thirsty” movie… I mean come on, it was getting a bit boring now wasn’t it… It’s about time somebody came up with a new concept, and have you ever read the books??? They are beautifully written. I agree that twilight should be in the list somewhere but not first (not over the first Vamp film) because hello… It’s about Vampires whether you want to believe it or not… It makes me laugh how offended people are getting lol!!! Oh & just for your info, Robert Pattinson is fine… ain’t no denying that ;)

  323. Aura

    why isnt twilight on here? twilight is definitly the greatest vampyre movie of all time. you all know it. But, we all also know that Breaking Dawn will be better. XD

  324. john

    i hate vampire movie

  325. jampappy41

    “Sexy” teenage actor does not a good vampire movie make.

  326. jampappy41

    Twilight is to E.T.
    30 Days of Night is to Alien

  327. Maggie

    You forgot the best vampire movie of all: Love Bites. It’s so funny and cool.

    ‘You are too close to the dishwasher. Step away from the dishwasher; or I will crush your cups.’ -quote from the movie

  328. Vampy

    You forgot “The little Vampire”!

  329. Steven

    “Let the Right One In”…. Best Vampire Movie ever made… easilly the best in the last 30 years.

  330. Sydney

    Um wow, just FYI guys, even if they updated this list… Twilight would be nowhere NEAR it. Get a life.

  331. Eric

    I was looking for this movie I saw where they had this vampire in a basement chained to this seat/table and the guy was studying the vampire. He found out that vampires love to count things and untie knots and something else, but I don’t remember. These people discovered the vampire in the basement and the guy that was keeping him was explaining to the people about his study. somehow the vampire got free from his bondage and went after the people. I remembered as the vampire was coming, the guy threw some tooth picks or matches at the vampire and he counted them befor they hit the floor. Then the guy laid out this net of rope that was in knots and the vampire stopped to undo the knots before continuing to go after the people. There is more but I don’t remember. It was in the 1990′s I think when I saw this movie and it might have been on HBO. If anyone have an idea or suggestion about the name of this movie,please contact me at Thanks!

  332. Renee

    I knew that when I came across this list, idiot fangirls would glomp all over this page and say “OMG WHERE IZ TWILIGHT!?!?” please. Twilight doesn’t have enough film merit to live up to the likes of the silent era Dracula films or Hammer Horror films, or even to Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Interview With the Vampire (the first to feature the “hot good guy vampire” [Louis] type) it may stand the test of time with the movie flops Van Helsing and Queen of the Damned though. maybe.

    and don’t be telling me that something teeney like Twilight can unseat THE first vampire film of modern century, THE classic of all classics, and THE forerunner for all of the vampire films to come, Nosferatu. that’s ridiculous. if anything, or something comparable to Twilight, “Let the Right One In”, both novel and film adaption, should unseat Twilight and should be more deserving of the spotlight than overhyped Twilight.

    @ Ookami: if you read carefully, Hellsing didn’t make #1 on this list; Nosferatu did, of course. Hellsing received honorable mention, but I’m so glad it did. currently my favorite Japanese manga/graphic novel series. the anime was horrible, but the Original Video Animation, Hellsing Ultimate, follows the original storyline a lot closer than the anime.

    And Vampire Hunter D too, for making it on the list…twice!

  333. lindsay

    i like a lot of these movie and i do think that some should be off the list.but some were just for fun. there are always the classics that no matter how old or young you are you know the movie or if in ten years someone remembers the ones made in the 90s or this decade they might say its a classic. but i still love the lost boys……………….

  334. lindsay

    oh and if anyone else has read the christopher pike series The last vampire i think they should make that into a movie it would beat out some of these other ones. and hate to say it but twilight was an ok movie but this series would be a better movie

  335. CuriousV7

    I was wondering, I saw these 2 movies when I was a kid growing up in the 80′s and I have no clue the names all I really remember is bits and fragments. The first is this kid and his family move into a new house and weird things start to happen to them they all start turing into monsters. It’s supposed to be a comedy and the scene I remember is his sister kissing a bat. Weird I know. And the other is this guy and girl go to this castle where there are vampires and hisgirlfriend gets suduced by the head vampire and he sends his vampire women after the boyfriend. But he escapes them from help from a vampire hunter, but the vimpire hunter gets bitten. The scene that sticks out is when the vampire hunter gets bitten he is talking to himself in front of a mirror and slowly starts to fade. I know my explanatiosn are vague but to me these are classic moviers and I would love to watch them again lol..that is if I find them.

  336. Brandie

    well… if i wear to pic the #1 vampire movie or show it would have to be TWILIGHT?/show: Tru Blood…thats wat i think and interview with the vampire should had been a least # 7!!!

  337. Rozeline

    To all those fans saying Twilight should be on the list;

    This is a list of VAMPIRE movies. Meyerpires are NOT VAMPIRES. They are large, carnivorous FAIRIES.

  338. james braselton


  339. Aly

    The two best vampire movies are on here, good job :)
    (Interview with the vampire and Queen of the Damned)

  340. punkstersk8

    wtf wahat about twilight

  341. kittykatgirl397


  342. The_Apathy

    Honestly, that list doesn’t do it for me, a lot of those movies are crap, only because they’re from the 70′s or 80′s doesn’t necessarily make them good… And on the other hand you left movies like Interview with the Vampire as number 15??? Are you guys crazy???? The same with Lost Boys and other REAL classics… Yeah, Nosferatu was fine as #1 but other choices were left way behind, and other crap got higher rankings, you guys REALLY need to re-make that list… I LOVE Vampires and I wanna see a list that REALLY makes them justice, not just any low budget, bad acted crap on a high ranking.

  343. Minoubinette

    There is one film that I didn’t see anyone mention. It’s Karmina (1996). It’s MADE IN QUÉBEC, so obviously french, but they translated it ;) hehe

    Sorry but I hated John Carpenter’s Vampire… so typical, boring and not enough of the vampire. Too much slayer. Plus the dialog, bleeeeh! That’s all I have to say.

    My faves are Interview with a Vampire, and well I’m a sucker for the romance, Twilight I loved! But not just the movie, the books as well, they are awsome! The myth is a little different from all the other ones, which I really liked…

The myth is a little different from all the other ones, which I really liked… But uhm, all those tweens that keep posting to update the list and put Twilight in there, it’ll probably just end up somewhere in the 30s or something. So get over it!

  345. Minoubinette

    oh and there was one with Jude Law, a strange vampire movie, but I foget the name. Anyone seen this?

    And another Quebec vampire movie, actually pretty good is Eternel (2004)

  346. Minoubinette

    oh just found it, I saw the movie with Jude Law under the title Immortality and I guess it was renamed The Wisdome of Crocodiles… Weird…

  347. NeoBlack

    If one more retard says that Twilight should be #1
    I will go on a rampage.
    It is the shittiest Vampire movie I have ever seen.
    It does not even -deserve- to be called a Vampire movie.
    Edward is a f*cking FAIRY.

  348. Esmeralda

    twilight,interview with the vampire, and queen of the damned are my favorite vampire movies.edward cullen and lestat are so HOT!!!!!i think robert was a good choice for edward.And tom cruise was good for lestat he’s very sexy in the interview with the vampire but even though i love twilight i think interview with the vampire is a #1 classic movie

  349. Esmeralda

    sorry but the vampire chronicles kicks ass

  350. lapis

    i wish all the books in the vampire chronicles series were made into movies.i wish vampires were real .then my life would never be miserable

  351. T

    “Let the Right One In” needs to be added.

  352. T

    I haven’t seen the vast majority of these movies, but “Queen of the Damned” should probably be taken off, and “Twilight” is a joke.

  353. BOB

    Man,you guys suck!

    Twilight is the BEST!!! I watch it all the time and i’ve read all of Stephanie’s books, She is like genius to write something like that!

    It is so not gay!!!

  354. vampire biotch

    to eric – post on March 20th – the vampire movie you are looking for is Dracula II: Ascension.

    A researcher with a crippling disease captions a vampire and performs tests on him, trying to use the vampire blood as a cure. Keeps the vampire in place /busy by tying him with a bunch of knots, etc. The girl the vampire hooks up with is Diane Neal (?) who played the Casey, the red-haird DA on Law & Order.

  355. vampire

    eric – post 3-20

    the vampire movie you are looking for is Dracula II: Ascension.

  356. Rachel

    HEY HEY! DO NOT FOR GET TWILIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It`s not a joke just because it didn`t have as much action doesn`t mean it`s a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It`s still a good movie and the books are awesome!!

  357. Astrid

    i am so glad to see that Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter made the list. I didn’t think many people knew about it. And they forgot to mention that the vampires that Jesus Christ must eliminate happen to be lesbian biker chicks… perfect.

  358. jackie

    i believe twilight is the best runnin vampire movie out right now

  359. Caroline

    What about twilight?

  360. megan

    oh man u didnt do twilight :( lol your probably doin the more older vamp movies huh? lol i love twilight if yall havent seen the movie yet then u need to cuz i think its the best movie ever!lol but yea i like those others good job.i’m like a twilight freak lol iv read all the books and i have 5 posters and i have the movie and when it was in theaters i seen it 6 times lol

  361. megan

    thats my opinion that twilight is the best vampire movie ever

  362. Buffalo

    Twilight is a good movie but it is NOT a Vampire movie.

    Vampire = Creature living on human blood.

  363. gigglez

    oh my god i watched “let the right one in” and i didnt like it at all and i love vampire films but that one was really bad:(

  364. KnowName

    Let the right one in…. was an exceptional vampire romance. It was innocent, yet with a touch of gore… More realistic than most… In my opinion it really captured “human” emotions for the viewer… I know i was moved by a few significant moments… it was movingly beautiful… Where has love like that gone? or does it even exsist at all. Moreover, check out the book. I found it equally impressive, yet invitingly different. If anyone has any comments or other films or books. Please email me at

  365. NishiAnila

    wow… i must say this is quite the collection. i found this site looking to expand my vampire movie collection. i actually took the time to read all of the comments… they start out as knowledable vampire fans discussing classics. then the twi-fans learn about vampires, and it turns into a generational debate.
    there are too many of the movies listed that i haven’t seen yet. i love classics and plan to indulge myself. some of my obsessions began with the series Buffy. but i must say that i will forever be a fan of the books written by Anne Rice. I feel that her description will always be closest to the vampires in my fantasy. i have mostly seen 90′s movies so i am speaking from limited experience.
    one thing that must not be forgotten is that all legends, myths, stories, and movies must change over time. the classics will ALWAYS remain classics. they were meant to be horrors. they were supposed to be dark, grotesque creatures. i have always felt that vampires should be intoxicatingly beautiful on the outside, so as to seduce the unsuspecting victim. but on the inside they are meant to be dark and brooding and evil. all evil pretends to be innocent to draw in its victim.
    i have never read the twilight books. but i did watch the movie on youtube (thank you i didn’t pay for it!)
    my opinion, although some of the previous comments state it better, is that it is a movie for the younger generation. one fight scene?????? comeon. it could have been waaaaay better. and only 2 people died?? maybe the book is better, maybe the second one will have more action… or maybe thats all there is to it. but i couldn’t categorize it as a vampire movie. yes he is called a vampire. yes all legends change over time. but it saddens me to see so many twi-fans calling it the #1 vampire movie. go watch every vampire movie ever made, then read every book ever written. then you can say it’s YOUR favorite book and movie. but never call it the best vampire story.
    everybody is entitled to their own fantasy, but at least do your research. i prefer real horror movies, no chic flicks. bloody, sexy, gorey, hellish good time!

    There is a vampire movie I saw years ago in which the main vampire character lived in a castle with his mom. He talked with a hiss to his voice and he talked slowly …at the end he put his mother in a cage because she was going to hurt the woman he loved. He had long blonde hair or white hair. Please e-mail me if you know which one I am talking about.

    okay anyone who actually read the twilight book series knows that even though Meyer help direct it it wasn’t accurate the scence’s were off and the actors did a horrible job except the actors with the least amount of screen time. Bella Swan suddered to much and didn’t look at him as if there was no one else and the scene where he smelled her i must admit it was funny but it shouldn’t be at that moment he was thinking about killing everyone just so he could eat her! Look if you actually read the book and not get lost in your head you’d know that heck i’m 14 and i love the books but the movie sucked and not in the good way. D:

    twilight is not good. thats why it is not on this list. sorry girlies

  370. F**k you, Cliché Emo Twilight Fans.

    Ok, lemme put out this fire before it gets any worse: this list was made two years ago, before Twilight even came out.

    Besides, if you came to this site expecting to find Twilight on the top 70 Vampire Movie listing of all time, then you should kill yourself. Watch the first five minutes of the movie “Idiocracy” and you’ll understand where I’m coming from.

    White hot rage blinds me. TWILIGHT appears on this page 262 times (as of 4/11/09). I really, truly, with every ounce of me hope that you all die horrible deaths – boring, cliché, unimaginative deaths. You are everything that is wrong with this world.

  371. pianist

    what about “Let the Right One In”? i know it’s in Swedish and all but it is a hell of a good movie if your into such movies

  372. T

    The “Twilight” movie IS a joke. Period. As for the books, I really don’t think there’s much point in defending them. I read most of one (I got it for Christmas, and I really, really did want to give it a chance), and it was a painful experience of bad writing, whiny, shallow characters, and a real bore of a storyline. In fact, the books MAY be more insufferable than the movie. But it’s hard to say. It’s all teeny bopper bullshit. And if you’re into that, fine, just stop insisting that it should be number one on the list, or on it at all. So, yeah.. I’m really sorry, and it’s been said, but fuck you. Truly.

    I still love “Let the Right One In”. It’s probably the best movie I’ve seen recently. If it hadn’t been so close to bedtime when I first finished watching it, I might have even watched it again. : )

  373. megan

    ive never heard of let the right one in i guess i better watch it and as for twilight i didnt know that this list was made 2 years ago but ive read all the books and i do think that the movie was kinda off from the the book but i really want to see breakingdawn lol the book was interesting but it will probably be made differently from the book but as for the rest of the vampire movies i havent seen all of them but the ones that i have saw there good and i have to go see let the right one in.

  374. Dells

    There’s a reason “Twilight” is not on the list and that is because as far as vampire movies go, that one was possibly the worst ever made. For everyone saying that we should read the books, you should read the header for the page. “Vampire MOVIES” every movie on this list is better than Twilight from Nosferatu, to Blade. Twilight barely had any substance and any alluring factors besides a teenage girl fantasy dream diary type script. It offers nothing to fans of vampire films. Anyway I’m glad Nosferatu, was on the list as well as From Dusk till Dawn. Maybe the list can be redone to see how well newer movies fare, like 30 Days of Night.

  375. unknown

    kewl movies half of em i havent even heard nor seen of before but i want to see let the right one in because everyone said that it was very great and very few said it was lame so I dont know i guess i’ll see for myself.

  376. Zerobubble

    Hi guys, just like the most of you i am a vampire lover…..i mean……well you know what i mean. I’ve read many comments on this page and finding the best vampire movie according to this 70 list or the comments is impossible. So… I would like to ask you what ingredients would make it the ultimate vampire movie. Maybe (hopefully) some producer will read your or our opinion and decide to give it a go.

  377. Twilight Exterminator

    No really,

    as was quoted earlier,

    “Meyerpires are NOT VAMPIRES. They are large, carnivorous FAIRIES.”

    The gay, pale, emo people in the Twilight Series (books and movie) are not Vampires. They are in fact gay, pale, emo fairies who happen to be carnivorous and sparkle in the sunlight.

    Stephanie Meyer is not a good author, she’s a retard with no talent. In fact she’s illiterate. If you want a good Vampire novel go read the fucking Vampire Chronicles. Despite that they come off as gay romance novels every now and then, at least there’s some fucking blood and gore as there should be in a vampire story. These vampires EXPLODE and burn in the sunlight, they’re filled with rage and bloodlust and they’ll fucking tear you apart.

    So if you’d rather see some pre-teen kissy romance between an adolescent teenage girl with a case of nausea and a gay, pale, sparkly, emo Fairy who likes steak… THEN PLEASE shut the fuck up and stop sticking your nose in the business of REAL VAMPIRES. Because Twilight’s got NOTHING to do with Vampires. It is not a Vampire story. It’s a pathetic high school story about GAY PEOPLE WHO SPARKLE.

  378. Janie Cullen

    i carnt beleave there is no “twilight”! twilight is only a new movie and haz already stolen the hearts of many teenages.(me)
    the books made my cry n i am realy dissapointed that twilight is not there n while im at it u should add new moon scince its already on the way!
    now i hav to fly to forks now goodbye.
    p.s. also i think them should make the vampire beach 2 books into a movie

  379. Janie Cullen



  380. maham

    it is good list but without the movie “twilight” it seems incomplete. pls add twilight , its really awesome.

  381. Mark

    Nice list… but 30 days of Night HAS to be in top 10!!!

  382. brad

    Where the hell is Ravenous and 30 Days of Night….incomplete without them included!

  383. brad

    Let The Right One In should be here to…a lot of these movies..especially the first few are pretty bad…..lets replace some of those or expand the list…..Twilight sucks but could be near the bottom of a top 100.

  384. twilightluver100%

    ok this is my opinion….30 days of night isnt that great twilight is 100 % better its alright tho i just got done watching it yesterday cuz i havent watched in a long time and after i got done watching it it seemed sooooo boring

  385. twilightluver100%

    o and by the way is let the right one in swedish??i watched the trailer and it looks stupid but i’m gonna watch it and say what i think.

  386. Baila Cullen

    twilightluver100%, I’m SOOOO excited about YOUR thoughts.

    (Twilight is OK but it isn’t a vampire movie)

  389. james braselton


  390. twilightluver100%

    twilight is awesome!!!!! i

  391. Twilight H8r

    sorry but notice the only people that like twilight are young girls? its a love story that merely has a vampire in it. i would find it hard to put it in the genre of “Vampire Films”

  392. Andrew Ross

    this list should be fixed! Van helsing is the best,,, i love u baby

  393. Elizabeth

    I think, the best film about vampires is “Intrerviev with the Vampire” and the best vampire is Louis de Pointe du Lac and Jasper Hale from Twilight .

  394. Elizabeth

    …and there should be Twilight , because that is so good film

  395. Maggie

    Let the Right One In should be on here. That was a GREAT vampire movie. TWATlight needs to gtfo..

  396. Cammywamy

    Where’s Twilight?!!!

  397. anne

    id say Twilight is the most romantic film i really love that film it will be big like Titanic was and Edward is the most gorgouse vampire iv seen he can bite me anyday

  398. m34

    Let the right one in is just awesome…totally made an impression on me.

  399. morbius

    twilight isnt a vampire film as it simply dosent have vampires in it; carniveros fairys yes but vampires definatly not.

  400. Laura

    twilight should absolutely be #1!!!
    but maybe this list came out before twilight came to cinemas.
    And I apologize, but maybe there are a few mistakes in these sentences because I’m from The Netherlands. So my English is not that good.

    By the way:

    I love Robert Pattinson!!!!!!!

  401. Zack

    Okay, let’s start off first with the subject Twilight. No. Just no. It is not a Vampire movie,allow me to explain WHY… In any myth you look at that stories about Vampire originate from, it all says they drink the blood of, and prey on, HUMANS. I liked the movie, it was alright, but not as a vampire movie. On to the person with the big fucking list, again, no. It is Best Vamp Movies of All Time, not, List of Every Fucking Vamp Movie Ever Made. Allow me to reiterate! Twilight, I like the movie somewhat, it’s okay, but NOT AS A VAMPIRE MOVIE!

  402. bicky

    fright night pic made me jump

  403. Buffalo

    Agree Zack.

    Twilight is a good movie but personally I don’t think it’s a vampire movie. I still think it should be on this list, though.

    But this list is plain mathematics. Nothing to argue about. This list has NOTHING to do with some sort of judgement from us here or the Snarkerati staff. As I said, it’s plain mathematics from reviewers etc:

    New movie on place #53 is: TWILIGHT (average 5.5)

    New movie on place #1 is: LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (average 9.0)

  404. opal


  405. VampireBlood23

    Twilight can suck a fat dick

  406. s

    Why was Dusk till Dawn on here, TERRIBLE vampire movie!

  407. Charles McGhee

    10 out of 10 for the movies on the list except for RABID which was not a vampire movie (take the writers word on that).
    I cannot figure out what your ruler is for ranking them. It appears you have none or maybe your still under 20. Try again after actually seeing them all.

  408. bloodvampiress

    i think vampires exist because how we now know that their r such things called vampires we also have another case like vampires they r mermaids . mermaids may also exist just like vampires as i personally think about not because i lov vampires and wana b 1 ok i think that twilight is a good movie but it is totaly not a vampire movie it is a romantic other words its a love story my opinion on the best vampires movies is queen of the demand

  409. bloodvampiress

    any comments at
    lol :]

  410. lizzy

    i still think they need better movies more like real looking vamps

  411. Buffalo

    Charles McGhee, look up the average point for each movie and you’ll get the answer. Plain mathematics.

  412. Clive

    Twilight is just a slushy chick flick. Edward is only cast as a vampire to give him a bit of ‘reformed bad boy with tortured soul’ sex appeal to young girls. The books are even more slushy!

    I’m sick to death with saintly do-good-er vampires, Angel, Blade, and the Cullens family can f**k right off. And what’s with all the gay and sensitive demons in TV land (e.g. Angel & Reaper)! God help us.

    A few big budget adaptations of the Anne Rice books would be much appreciated. OK her vampires have nice sides, but at least they have the decency to look upon mortals as lunch.
    ‘Interview with the Vampire’ was excellent, and I quite enjoyed ‘Queen of the Dammed’ whatever its faults.

    ‘Let the right one in’ is a very satisfying watch, although anyone who suggests it for the #1 slot is getting a bit carried away. Ultimately, it’s still low budget and dubbed.

    I’m supprised that ‘I am legend’ didn’t make the list. Admittedly the story is a bit weak, which is a particular shame since all they had to do for a strong story was follow the book. But the special effects were proper big budget jobs.

    The Underworld films are good in every department, and probably the best vampire franchise going at the moment. Definately worth a look.

    For the record, the worst vampire film, in fact just plain the worst film of any type, I’ve ever watched was Dracula 3000. I don’t know how it ended, because I couldn’t be bothered to watch it taht far. It was that lame!

  413. it'sbrittanybitch

    queen of the damned,
    and both underworlds are
    the best vampire movies
    ever created and twilight
    is a good book, but a cheesy ass

  414. Buffalo


    What movie you or I think is good or bad is without interest here. This list rank the movies only concidering the average between rotten and IMDb. If you want to discuss how You think vampire movies should be ranked you’ll have to find another list.

    (I didn’t see LTROI dubbed)

  415. Naois

    “Let the Right One In”


    Instantly put on my list for favorite movies of all time.

  416. Nisha Liz Cruz Hernandez

  417. alexxaaa

    I have to disagree. I really enjoyed the Vampire chronicles of Anne Rice. Although the “Interview with the Vampire” is in fifteenth, I have to say it should AT THE LEAST be in the top 10. :)

  418. Renee Antonette

    I have red most of the reactions.
    and most af them were about the movie TWILIGHT
    I saw the movie
    and for all of those who thought it wasn’t a vampire movie.
    It defenetly is! (see wickeypedia)
    some say Stephenie meyer must explain the sparkeling and stuf.
    but she doesn’t they don’t say anything about the burning in sunlight.
    and for those who think that it’s about Edward Cullen there not right
    Sure i’m mean you can’t deny he’s sexy. But you can’t blame his fan’s. (the film is only populair because of his teen Fan’s)
    this was said in one of the comments. I remember Intervieuw with the vampire. sure it is a great movie but don’t you think the movie became populair because of his actors. i’m mean Brat pitt and Tom cruise. let’s be real

    so i think that twilight shoud be definitly on the list.
    because it is a Vampire movie
    i can tell i’m not a Twilight super Teen fan.
    but peopele may not say such things about a movie if they don’t understand anything of it. SO NOT A NUMER 1* BUT THINK MORE IN NUMER FROM 20 to 30 OKAY

  420. Betsy

    Great list! I grew up watching all of these old films. I remember Lost Boys the best. My mom always made me watch the scarier ones like fright night! Theres a good amount of vampire movies at too

  421. Lily

    Well, I’m going to thank you for not adding Twilight. I’m not going to get into the whole, “does Twilight suck” or not argument, but I do agree that the movies on this list are a heck of a lot better than Twilight was. If you enjoyed the movie, fine. Bully for you. But it’s not a classic- it doesn’t have any depth. I have to admit that. It may be enjoyable to some now, but it’s just a passing phase. Not good enough to be considered for an ‘all-time’ list.

  422. Jeff

    This list should be titled best reviewed vampire movie. Rating a movie as the “best vampire movie” is always going to be subjective. It probably should be left to the people that have seen scores of vamp flicks. I am not that person.

    That said, I’ve seen both Twilight and Let the Right One In. Both are slow moving. Twilight’s romance is predicated on physical attraction reinforced by the oftentimes bull shit notion that, “There’s just something different about him/her”. It’s a common device we’ve all used at one point or another to validate our superficial feelings so that we don’t feel shallow…

    In Let the Right One In, the relationship actually develops. The vampire kills, but she helps the boy grow up. She helps him become liberated on some level. The movie doesn’t take the easy way out and make the vampire a vegan (a good vampire) so that viewer will like her. The movie doesn’t rely on gorgeous actors so that you care about the characters.

    I hate having to read movies (subtitles). But the soundtrack, the layered story, and subtle acting made it worth it. It’s not just one of the best vampire flicks I’ve seen. Let the Right One In is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.

  423. LT

    This seems like a quick google compilation. Hellsing is great, but it’s an anime series, not a movie. Some of the films posted her are just plain crap.

  424. Dave

    “Let the Right One In” is absolutely brilliant. But has anybody mentioned “Vampire Ecstasy” from the ’70′s? It was also known as “The Devil’s Plaything”…..

  425. elaine

    TWILIGHT story is not really about the “vampire” thing, it’s more about their love-and-life-complications-and-survival…
    and for me TWILIGHT is one of the best book and movie i’ve known..

  426. Twifan 101


  427. Robert

    I havent seen twilight, but from everything Ive read…It sounds nothing like a *real* vampire movie. Look up the definition of vampire and see if that even fits what you’re putting it to. I might end up watching the garbage just to make an actual concrete comment based off having seen it.

    Vampires are not supposed to *sparkle*, not supposed to live off of animal blood, blah blah blah. Just because you want to think a word means something does NOT mean thats what it is.

    Actually research what a vampire is, or at least see where the legend started from.

    Like I said though, for Twilight, I’m just going off what Ive read for comments for how the “vampire” is.

  428. emo_babe

    omg!!i love most of the movies that are listed.but the need twilight.and my favrite one thats up there is INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE!!!I LOVE THAT MOVIE

  429. emo_babe

  431. what the...

    Where the hell is Twilight! I love that movie! It should be like…#1! ahhhh…

  432. NOT FAIR!


  433. R

    How dare you insult the movie Twilight and Stephanie Meyer! Of course it’s about vampires! what do you think it’s about?! Unicorns?!!! It should definitly be on the list, mabey not #1, but somewhere on the fricken list!!

  434. morbius

    i thought it was about carniveros fairies. they arent fucking vampires, there not even pyhsco vampric; Meyer-pires are as vampire as mosquetos

  435. Laura

    you havent got twilight !!
    its much better than most of these!!~:L

  436. Scarlet

    twilight isent a real vampire movie. its just for little girls that arent able to take the real vampire movies. i mean wat the hell. its the worth movie ever made the guy that plays edward is a total flake.and doesnt know how to act. this is got REAL vampire movies not some little fagette of a movie(( btw i would like to add im sorry for insulting the word fagette for puting it with twilight…that is all)) the losers that like twilight. its not a vampire movie its a romance that suposedly has vampires.

  437. Jessie

    Well, good list, but Twilight IS a vampire movie, sure it’s not a killer movie, but they ARE still vampires.

    It’d be ,at least, in the top 10.

  438. Tsukishijin

    Ok, one quick thing…or not so quick.

    Twilight was entertaing, and technically it was a movie with vampires in it.


    1) If you had read the comments you would realize that this list was made before Twilight came out and the author is under no need to update it.

    2)While Twilight has vampires, it is completely different from what is considered the ‘Vampire Movie’ category. Mel Brooks’ ‘Dracula Dead and Loving It’ was better and didn’t make the list.

    3) Remember fangirls: you’re newcomers. Many of us have appreciated the genre for a long time and have a wealth of experience to draw upon. We have seen what the legend can become in the hands of Stoker and Rice: haunting and dangerous beings who are the darkest parts of our own humanity. So please forgive the rest us if we are unimpressed by a book series designed specifically for a certain age group (tween girls).

    4) Twilight was as entertaining as it was because it was SO BAD IT WAS GOOD!!! It was the ‘Snakes on a Plane’ of romance movies. I couldn’t stop laughing!

    Kudos for mentioning Hellsing. Though it’s not a movie it is one of the most kickass horror series in the world.

    I do wish that Underworld had been ranked higher. It was always a bit of a cult favorite, but it took the legends and managed to effectively transport it to a world of urban fantasy.

    I do wonder what would happen if the list was made not by math, but my a panel of experts.

  440. celticwitan

    I dont see House of Dark Shadows, or the series mention that still has a cult following. I do not understand why the remake was cancelled. I actually believe that Angel, the vampire with a soul is a copycat of Barnabas, becuase Barnabas was an evil ruthless vampire and became a force for good, fighting bad vampires, witches, warlocks, warewolves, mr Hyde, Ghosts, Leviathins, and more. The time travel and parellel universes were a first to TV.

  441. morbius

    the mainstream media has evolved (or refutably devolved becouse of corupt greed and capitalisim) and wished to plunge the depth of its differnt genres and now we vamp film fanatics are at war; consumer tween culture has tried to cross the rubickon( assuming main stream media is seisor that has now become ugly and corput) and it wishes to invaide its long left home land of folk lore and fantastic righting becouse their land of hanamontana and tragic moscaters is turning to an infertil desert. in short FUCK TWILIGHT. p.s. psyhco vampire film rocks beyound all, the vampire cult or the vampire dairy are beutiful for their un-sureal canibilism and brain damage insinuated murders

  442. Sabrina

    You don’t have Twilight on there. Put it on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  443. Maryse

    Indeed, I’m with the people who believes that Let The Right One In should be on this list!
    And sure, I might be a Twilight fan but it does NOT deserve a spot on this list.

  444. You know who I'm

    STUPID TOP OF MOVIES OF VAMPIRES , surelly this was made by gaybo as ever ussurpin the public’s decicions , this is a total fraud !!! , much trash on this list , you only brainwash the idiot brain of the people without criteria you can know you are only losing the public’s credence on your businesses

  445. JEMpire1

    Seem to have mised off some of the best, such as The Hunger and more recently Let The Right One In.

  446. L U N A

    where is TWILIGHT?

  447. morbius

    twighlight is to new and more importantly not a vampire film hence it isnt on the list :) . go stake yourselves twighlight fans

  448. Daphne

    Not that bad a list. I think that a few should be rearranged though, I thought Queen of the Damned was a much better movie than Blade and both of them have beaten it… no doubt I expected either Bram Stoker or Nosferatu to top the list. But I still think it needs some rearranging.

    …and who are the idiots saying that Twilight be added to the list?… gosh go away with that friggin movie

  449. S.A

    Did they put the movie “Dracula is dead and he’s loving it”? Well, anyway, it was very funny. I really enjoyed the movie.
    Oh yeah:
    underworld #1 #2, day watch, night watch, and blade #1 #2, shouldn’t be all the way in the back. They should be in the front like between 20 and 10. Excellent movies.

  450. randmhero23

    That was a decent list, but with certain movies in the wrong top slots. And one of the great vampire movies, Once Bitten, with a young jim carrey. Great. Some of those movies don’t deserve to be on there though. Underworld was good but was less of a vampire movie and more of an epic battle of immortals. Van Helsing was just a large CGI monster flick. Like adding computer animation to the Monster Squad. C’mon. Dracula 1972A.D. was a pretty decent flick.. much better than the several anime cartoon ones put in there. Are you serious, cartoons. Grow up. As if making this massive list and then all of us commenting with our “Expert Opinions” isn’t childish enough….. Vampire cartoons…LOL

    I’d make some changes on the list (like anime stuff)
    but i’m soooo glad twilight wasn’t here!!

  453. Jonathan

    The Hamiltons, i just watched it and it was brilliant, at first everyone feels like a bad guy, but at the end… Nobody really seems evil (well, there are two complete sickos, ok… But they look after their family).

    I think it should be considered, maybe it is not traditional vampire flick, no severe sunburns, no fatal allergy to garlic or deadly case of atheism.

  454. DVD Spin Doctor

    Vampyr (1932) on Criterion. Great list otherwise!

  455. anne

    there was this movie with these two best friends, and they go to pennsylvania to stay in this castle. One of the girls slipped her hand through the castle door, and the bad vampire bit her. So later on in the movie she becomes sick. So he best friend tries to figure out why she’s sick. and then this guy who is also a vampire but a good one, tries to help the girl and her friend. He then falls in love with her and in the end makes her his wife. there was also a part in the scene where there’s a festival and they wear masks in the town, and the girl and the good vampire were together….. ugh!! what is that movie called??? it was in the 90′s i believe… and those are the only parts i remember.. please help me.

  456. S.E.P

    Great choices but you forgot Twilight.

  457. dallas and treco

    wow i like all most all of these movies but some i have not even heard of. but anyway i will be watching most of these movies-dallas

    this is not the same person… booooo vampire movies suck especially twilight-treco

  458. lucy

    i am so glad they didnt show twilight

  459. X

    This would make an awesome collection someday.

  460. morbius

    i implore of you generation Z please do not post your redundent comments

    TO THE PEOPLE who are upset that “Let the Right One In” isn’t on the list. This list was made in 2007, and Let the Right One In was made in 2008. Do the math.

    I’m sure if they updated this list they would include it in the top 10.

  462. Santa

    Hey, and where’s Twilight? It is at the tops of all movies, it has to be in the TOP 70 of vampire movies!!!

  463. AliceXCullen


  464. TwilightBorn

    I agree with all of the Twilight lovers. Twilight needs to be on here. But I also think that there needs to be more modern vampire movies on here. There are some, but there needs to be more. That’s just my personal opinion.

  465. TwilightBorn

    My choices for atleast the top 7 would be,

    1) Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
    2) Underworld
    3) Underworld Evolution
    4) Twilight
    5) Van Helsing
    6) Interview with a Vampire
    7) Ultra Violet

  466. Mansini

    List written October 16th, 2007….”Where’s Twilight? Where’s Twilight?”….fuck Twilight. I’m sorry, but anyone who has a drop of respect for vampire lore shouldn’t write crap that has vampires looking “beautiful” in sunlight.

    You want some real vampire drama, read Rice. Nuff said.

    A Swedish film that came out in 2008 called “Let the Right One In” is a great vampire flick. If you don’t mind reading subtitles, I recommend it. You can watch it instantly now if you have a Netflix account.

  467. morbius

    your pallet of vampire film must be restricted to the mainstream as nothing in ur short list of favorits isnt a conformist watered down peace of shit with capital intention

  468. morbius

    i conceed that the vampire subgenre must evolve to survive but twighlight isnt this evolution, its just one of the many fucked up meutents that occured along the way.

    i dare say the future in vampire film (a cultest HORROR subgenre) will follow the direction of the low budget UK goth film “vampire diary” (not to be confused with the sadly popular, posably becouse of its twighlightish qualities book series ‘the vampire dairies’).

    the majority of big name big budget vampire films are made to make money; to maximise profit they maximise the audiance demiographic and to do that the must make it easy to watch which ultamatly strips away what makes the sub-genre what it is ,its simple shit people. if u want good vampire film dig around indie film. theres a reason why “citizen kane” is considerd the best peace of cinima of all time; orsen wells didnt conform to what “the money” wanted, he told the story the way he wanted and now 50 years later is still considerd the greatest film of all time.

    Um… ya, whatever happened to the latest vamp movies?
    Like Twilight for example? Please, an update would be nice.

  471. rosalie (miss goth grl)

    i love these movies:
    2.interview with a vampire
    3.dracula (i dont know which one i think it wasa newer one)

  472. karina

    Even though Vampires are a theme that provoque fear, shivers, excitmente & sensuality. . . besides anime movies or series. . . there´s also other options for youngsters, maybe a lil bit younger than we thought. . . like these movies

    Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995)

    The Little Vampire (2000) perhaps it can fit in the extras list but it must be listed. . .


  473. Ben

    Thought this might be a good place to ask this question. At the end of ‘from dusk till dawn’ the vampires are killed by rays of light coming through the walls of the club. There is another vampire film where a very similar thing happens… the vampires are trapped in a house and police outside are shooting in making holes in the walls, the vampires are killed by the rays of light. In this film the vampires are the heroes (or anti-heroes). It’s fairly obvious that Tarantino was influenced by this scene, but I can’t find any reference to it. I watched it years ago and I think it might have been made in the late 70s early 80s.

    Does anybody know the name of this film?

    Thanks :)

  474. morbius

    possably near dark

  475. Don'tCare

    hey everyone guess what. Twilight sucked and doesn’t deserve to be on this list. Vampires don’t sparkle. Get over it

    And before you go all OH, YOU HAVE TO READ/SEE IT FIRST..

    Yeah, been there, done that, It blows.

  476. Jeff

    “Let The Right One In” is the best vampire movie in years. Should be at the top of the list.

  477. sithlordjesusprime

    Ok, first of all Vlad 2000 and Kat. Yous are Effing awesome.

    Secondly, As someone who has read all the Anne Rice books, I have to say I was VERY disappointed with QotD by comparison to Interview with the Vampire. HOWEVER, if you read the books, you would know that Queen of the damned was probably the worst in the series. So the movie followed suit. The story in the book wasn’t bad overall, just the way in which it was written. If I had to make that movie, I would have deviated from the book as much as possible. Haha. However, it had a lot off potential, but what can you do. I honestly hated the choice of actors and the cinematography, and hell, a lot of the damn movie.

    Third of all, if you can’t appreciate a movie because it is in black and white, or because the effects aren’t new… you shouldn’t even be watching movies. It’s one thing if the effects were bad for it’s TIME… But then, I often hate a lot of new movies because they are OVERDONE with effects to the point of being fake and obvious and it ruins it. But there are many GREAT movies that are black and white, or dated as far as effects. It just needs to have great acting, great directing and appropriate effects such as lighting, etc.

    Lastly… I understand that all you Twilight fans are likely 12 year old girls, so I don’t expect you to know what a good movie is, or read often enough to distinguish a good book… So I am going to give you your first lesson right hear: As someone who enjoys all forms of art and expression, reads as often as possible, appreciates movies, and most importantly loves the vampire genre… Twilight makes me want to vomit the blood of my last victim, collect all my vampire related belongings and burn them, just before I retire to Antarctica (or where ever the sun shines the most) stark naked, until I am charred onyx black and die.

    It is the most vile thing to ever have been written and produced in movie form, blatantly degenerating the standards for both forms of media, potentially beginning the collapse of humanity.

    Please find another book after you rip out and individually shred each page, and refuse to watch any movie even remotely comparable.

  478. sithlordjesusprime

    PS. Clive – I am legend is good, but not a vampire movie. I thought it was clearly zombie.

    Also, to whoever says that Interview with the Vampire is only thought to be good because of Brad and Tom… You are completely wrong. The book was excellent, and at the time of the movie, they weren’t the “megastars” that they came to be. You are simply using a cop out. A good movie requires SO much more then a recognizable cast. Plenty of great movies have no-names and plenty or TERRIBLE movies have stars. That movie would have been great even without them, so long as the actors could play the part as well. Or that movie could have been a disaster with the same actors, if it wasn’t directed as well.

  479. pamela

    you missed twilight

  480. luralai

    I can’t beleive “Modern Vampires” starring Casper Van Dien didn’t make it to the list.

  481. Not Cool

    I cant believe little kids are allowed online. It seems like all the people who like twilight and try to defend twilight are doing a poor job. You sound like 4 year old monkeys who were allowed online and express your “thoughts” with poor grammar and annoying txt talk. Just go away, keep your opinions to yourself OR talk like you have some sense.

  482. gdakgd

    lol if you think twilight is #1 watch angel and cry about how wrong you were

  483. morbius

    “Not cool” i concure. we must shock these space monkeys into submition. n.a.s.a dosnt need emotional articulation in the form of feces throwing, it needs expendable drones. tweens do not deserve an opinion of vampire film as their opinion is redundent.

  484. sneaky pete

    lol at vampire fetish

  485. Bryan

    True Blood is an amazing Vampire (plus other things) show. Great characters and dialog and very interesting take on urban vampires.

  486. BELLA


  487. Drakeula

    Not a bad list but seriously…..Queen of the Damned should not be on any list what so ever.The special effects sucked big time and the story was not even close to what the book was.All the did was try and combine both “the Vampire Lestat” and “The Queen of the Damned” into one movie.

  488. Felixandru

    How about White Wolf’s adaptation “Kindred: The Embraced”, even though the series didn’t last, due to the death of the actor who played Prince Julien, the main actor?

  489. Cheryl Z

    Okay, the list wasn’t perfect and I can see a lot that should have been omitted and there are quite a few that were overlooked.

    But I have to say how impressed IMPRESSED I am that you have two of my favorite movies on there, and both are not very well known:

    Blood and Donuts
    Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

    Two of the most awesomest vampire movies eva!

    [edit] History
    The earliest cinematic vampires in such films as The Vampire (1913), directed by Robert G. Vignola, were in reality ‘vamps’ or femme fatales deriving inspiration from a poem by Rudyard Kipling called “The Vampire”, composed in 1897. This poem was written as kind of commentary on a painting of a female vampire by Philip Burne-Jones exhibited in the same year. Lyrics from Kipling’s poem: A fool there was . . . , describing a seduced man, were used as the title of the film A Fool There Was (1915) starring Theda Bara as the ‘vamp’ in question and the poem was used in the publicity for the film.[1]

    A genuine supernatural vampire features in the landmark Nosferatu (1922 Germany, directed by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau). This was an unlicensed version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, based so closely on the novel that the estate sued and won, with all copies ordered to be destroyed. It would be painstakingly restored in 1994 by a team of European scholars from the five surviving prints that had escaped destruction.

    The next classic treatment of the vampire legend was in Universal’s Dracula (1931) starring Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula. Five years after the release of the film, Universal released Dracula’s Daughter (1936), a direct sequel that starts immediately after the end of the first film. A second sequel, Son of Dracula, starring Lon Chaney, Jr. followed in 1943. Despite his apparent death in the 1931 film, the Count returned to life in three more Universal films of the mid-1940s: House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945) both starring John Carradine and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). While Lugosi had played a vampire in two other movies during the 1930s and 1940s, it was only in this final film that he played Count Dracula onscreen for the second (and last) time.

    A link between the Universal tradition and the later Hammer style is the 1957 Mexican movie El Vampiro that actually showed the vampire fangs (Lugosi did not) and introduced other now common cliches.

    Dracula was reincarnated for a new generation in the celebrated Hammer Horror series of films, starring Christopher Lee as the Count. The first of these films Dracula (1958) was followed by seven sequels. Lee returned as Dracula in all but two of these. A more faithful adaptation of Stoker’s novel appeared as Dracula (1993) directed by Francis Ford Coppola though also identifying Count Dracula with the notorious medieval Balkan ruler Vlad the Impaler[2].

    A distinct sub-genre of vampire films, ultimately inspired by Le Fanu’s Carmilla explored the topic of the lesbian vampire. The first of these was Blood and Roses (1960) by Roger Vadim. More explicit lesbian content was provided in Hammer Studios Karnstein Trilogy. The first of these, The Vampire Lovers, (1970), starring Ingrid Pitt and Madeleine Smith, was a relatively straightforward re-telling of LeFanu’s novella, but with more overt violence and sexuality. Later films in this sub-genre such as Vampyres (1974) became even more explicit in their depiction of sex, nudity and violence.

    Beginning with the absurd Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) the vampire film has often been the subject of comedy. The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967) by Academy Award winner Roman Polanski was a notable parody of the genre. Other comedic treatments, of variable quality, include Old Dracula (1974) featuring David Niven as a lovelorn Dracula, Love at First Bite (1979 USA) featuring George Hamilton and Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995 USA, directed by Mel Brooks) with Canadian Leslie Nielsen giving it a comic twist.

    Another development in some vampire films has been a change from supernatural horror to science fictional explanations of vampirism. The Last Man on Earth (Italy 1964, directed by Ubaldo Ragona) and The Omega Man (1971 USA, directed by Boris Sagal), both based on Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend, are two examples. Vampirism is explained as a kind of virus in David Cronenberg’s Rabid (1976 Canada) and Red-Blooded American Girl (1990 Canada, directed by David Blyth).

    Race has been another theme, as exemplified by the blaxploitation picture Blacula (1972) and several sequels.

    Since the time of Bela Lugosi’s Dracula (1931) the vampire, male or female, has usually been portrayed as an alluring sex symbol. Christopher Lee, Delphine Seyrig, Frank Langella, and Lauren Hutton are just a few examples of actors who brought great sex-appeal into their portrayal of the vampire. Latterly the implicit sexual themes of vampire film have become much more overt, culminating in such films as Gayracula (1983) and The Vampire of Budapest, (1995), two pornographic all-male vampire movies, and Lust For Dracula (2005), a pornographic all-lesbian adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic.

    There is, however, a very small sub-genre, pioneered in Murnau’s seminal Nosferatu (1922) in which the portrayal of the vampire is similar to the hideous creature of European folklore. Max Schrek’s disturbing portrayal of this role in Murnau’s film was copied by Klaus Kinski in Werner Herzog’s remake Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht (1979). In Shadow of the Vampire (2000, directed by E. Elias Merhige), Willem Dafoe plays Max Schrek, himself, though portrayed here as an actual vampire. Dafoe’s character is the ugly, disgusting creature of the original Nosferatu. Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot (1979), notably depicts vampires as terrifying, simple-minded creatures, without erotism, and with the only desire to feed on the blood of others. This type of vampire is also featured in the film 30 Days of Night.

    A major character in most vampire films is the vampire hunter, of which Stoker’s Abraham Van Helsing is a prototype. However, killing vampires has changed. Where Van Helsing relied on a stake through the heart, in Vampires 1998 USA, directed by John Carpenter, Jack Crow (James Woods) has a heavily-armed squad of vampire hunters, and in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992 USA, directed by Fran Rubel Kuzui), writer Joss Whedon (who created TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and spinoff Angel) attached The Slayer, Buffy Summers (Kristy Swanson in the film, Sarah Michelle Gellar in the TV series), to a network of Watchers and mystically endowed her with superhuman powers.

    yea its a nazi zombie flick not vampire but i just saw it at the internaational film festivil fucking awsome. dead snow.

  506. Tony

    I haven’t read this whole list cause its way too freakin long, but “Lesbian Vampire Killers” is amazing and has been described as “shaun of the dead with tits” its awesome, along with “Once Bitten” starring Jim Carrey, and “Vampires Anonymous” is also an awesome film.

    Sooo yea

  507. morbius

    and shaun of the dead should be shot in the head so it never comes back becouse its a peace of shit along with lesbian vampire killers

  508. Thomas

    Considering the simple large number of the films, I am willing to forgive Queen of the damned being on the list, since its so high up.

    However, I cannot begin to imagine what possesed you to put Nosferatu as number 1. Yes, its good. Yes, it likely delayed Twhylight for a while. But it still started the ‘vampire killed by sunlight’ thing, which spawned dozens of vampire movies and books in which the ancient and powerful vampire is destroyed because he forgot to look at his watch.

    I’m sorry, but such a Deus Ex Machina is a big hit to the movie. That said, 5 to 10 would have been a better choice.

  509. Twilight sucks

    WTF are some of you talking about twilight? It is a stupid romantic movie

    The vampires in Twilight are fucking gay. Its a pity to even consider them vampires. They feed off animal blood. REAL vampires feed off human blood. And these vampire fag twilight fucks sparkle in the sunlight. VAMPIRES DONT SPARKLE IN THE SUN. and the whole movie has to do with Edward and Bella. Nothing else. The whole “omg if edward dies I die!” or “OMG if bella died I die” Shut up. The cast isn’t even good looking. And Stephanie Meyer is a crappy writer who ripped off the “Sookie Stackhouse chronicles” Twilight, if anything, ruined vampires. Made vampires seem normal. Now, thanks to twilight, vampires are never going to be the same. -_-

  516. Shanna

    Hé, the list is nothing without TWILIGHT, the movie made according to the books by Stephenie Meyer, or the other movie(s) being made according to the saga Twilight

  517. Blood Rose

    Excuse me….. but does this list has tv shows of vampires?Plus is the series Vampire Kiss series going to be a movie ?Btw the twilight movie is not what i call a beautiful gothic vampire movie.It’s a movie about glittering gay people who think they are hotter then others.I hope when the vampire diaries comes out on cw 11 i hope alot of girls give up on the twilight couples bella and edward and love the vampire diaries couples elena and stefan more.To those who love twilight(which is very gay cause edward is a fag and bella looks like a man)i prefer u watch the 2 best movies interview with the vampire and queen of the damned.for tv show the vampire diaries then you fans will realize that they are much better then gay twilight

    Twilight the movie was garbage…..women are so fucking pathetic!

  523. To every one like Twilight

    It’s rude to claim this list suck just because there isn’t Twilight. Well, it can be a good love story for teenagers but it’s not very good at being a vampire movie. The reason is you feel nothing scary, mystery, palpitate, excited, spiritual what shold be brought to a vampire movie. Edward is a goodboy, to good to made me feel he is a vampire. Do you think it’s a vampire movie if there is not bloodlust, killing scene like zombies without killing, virus and gun. Making something new is good but if you go too far from the origins, it will be something very diffrent. Twilight the novel is good for everyone, not bad for the true fan of vampires but the movie is nothing but a romantic movie, it’s famous just because the novel is famous and the actors and actress a good looking to most of people.

Twilight the novel is good for everyone, not bad for the true fan of vampires but the movie is nothing but a romantic movie, it’s famous just because the novel is famous and the actors and actress a good looking to most of people. ……..

  526. rellella

    Well i gotta say i have not seen half of these films i have seen a few they a wkd tahh i jst wonna say have u seen the little vampire it is so cool

  527. nota12yearoldemo

    It’s quite amazing how stupid the people championing twilight sound. I thought the movie was aimed at teenagers in general, but it seems to have attracted a very high proportion of retards. They can’t even string a simple sentence together.

    Anyway, Twilight is a pretty average popcorn flick. ‘Let the right one in’ is the only movie that has been released since this list was made that deserves consideration.

  528. Courtney de Lioncourt

    I love that Interview with the Vampire is there,defenitely one of my favorites.I really did enjoy Queen of the Damned as well.I was SO glad Nosferatu is number one.That movie was amazing.Scared the hell out of me.I also love Shadow of the Vampire, The Lost Boys,Underworld,Blade,and Horror of Dracula.

  529. Lex

    I recommend Let The Right One In. It’s like the Anti-Twilight.
    So far my favorites are Interview With The Vampire, Let The Right One In, Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust.

    I’m not really a fan of Underworld to be honest. I find it good, but for some reason I’m not that big on that movie like everyone else is. And Queen Of The Damned isn’t really that great. It’s alright, but I don’t feel like it deserves to be on the list.

    P.S – Twilight can go suck a dick and fucking burn. Bad actors and horrible story. TWILIGHT is so BAD that if a real vampire watches this it would die. It’s only meaningful to teenage girls and little girls who don’t know nothing about vampires. Watch Let The Right One In. It’s way better.

  530. Gangler

    You can say what you will about the quality of the Twilight films. I didn’t like them, but I wasn’t the target audience. The target audience (prebubescent girls) does. Nothing wrong with that. Twilight, however, did not have vampires. They used the word incorrectly. What they had was some entirely new abomination which sullied the image of the vampire irreparably and possibly out of some misplaced spite. No vampires. Not a vampire movie. That fucking simple.

  531. Shadowz

    I am here to correct the truth of the last posted msg. In twilight, the cullens are referred to as “vampires”, I agree that there was no real vampyres in the movie because if you people new more about vampyres you would know that the term “Vampyre” refers to the cold skinned, blood feeding creature of the night. The term “Vampire” refers to people that live in a Vampyre style of life.. This includes goths, emo’s, vampires, ect. Do I make myself clear.. You pathetic people shouldn’t be going around looking up vampyre stuff if you have no idea what you mean.. Stephanie meyer made a spelling mistake.. Or was it an intelectual mistake becuase she didn’t read up on her basis informations before she started doodling on her laptop. People, if you are so interested in information on vampires.. Go to proper sites.. Oh hang on, vampires don’t have the internet.. So just stop!

  532. morbius

    edward cullen and his toxic trainwreck generation z consumer zombie tween slaves should have their eyelids cut off and tied down infront of a monitor playing the bella lagosi dracula in a loop so the little fuckers knw what a vampire is b4 they die of starvation

    i conceed that the vampire subgenre must evolve to survive but twighlight isnt this evolution, its just one of the many fucked up mutants that occured along the way.

    i dare say the future in vampire film (a cultest HORROR subgenre) will follow the direction of the low budget UK goth film “vampire diary” (not to be confused with the sadly popular, posably becouse of its twighlightish qualities book and tv series ‘the vampire dairies’).

    the majority of big name big budget vampire films are made to make money; to maximise profit they maximise the audiance demiographic and to do that they must make it easy to watch which ultamatly strips away what makes the sub-genre what it is ,its simple shit people. if u want good vampire film dig around indie film. theres a reason why “citizen kane” is considerd the best peace of cinima of all time; orsen wells didnt conform to what “the money” wanted, he told the story the way he wanted and now 50 years later it is still considerd the greatest film of all time.

    seriosly poeple “vampire diary” look into it; Mark James,
    Phil O’Shea “vampire diary”

    vampire diary

  533. Kirsty

    Look idiots this list was made b4 twilight came out for all those twilight fans , its not a proper vamyre film and its deffo not gotic the only reason anyone watches it is coz of Robert Pattinson but get some sesnse and read a better vampire book and watch a better vampire film (broaden your horizens )

  534. Sunshine

    A quick note to all of you obsessed Twilighters out there…

    Twilight is a watered down version of borderline vampire lore mixed with the sex appeal of “dangerous” guys geared towards young girls…furthermore, it is a Mary Sue, where Meyer plays out her younger years the way she wanted it to happen, Ed Cullen representing the “popular kid” or whatever…probably a jock of some sort…
    First off, Vampires do not sparkle in the sun. They do get a bit glow-y, but usually because most lore has them bursting into flame…Vampires are dark beings who are so dark, that their polar opposite, sunlight, kills them. They are representatives of what goes bump in the night…Vampires are your first real nightmare…the first monster under your bed ((I think I may be paraphrasing Robin McKinley here…at least her Vampires are dangerous, gory, somewhat evil beings, whose only motivation to team up with humans is to kill off a common Vampire enemy and whose only motivation to not frighten their prey is because even though frightened blood tastes better, it weakens you…but I digress))

    I think that Twilight, if anything, should be considered more towards the low end of superhero movies…or somewhere in with Disney movies like Hannah Montana Banana Fontana or The Jonas Brothers or whatever…

    Twilight, however, was an OKAY movie…I think that for not being really thrilled with the job, Robert Pattinson played through it like a real trooper and did well…his female counterpart…well…she was boring…along with the rest of the movie…

    However, since Twilight is more shallow and superficial than say…anything Anne Rice could come up with…and FAR less amazing and brilliant than Bram Stroker, and since the only thing remotely vampiric about Meyer-pires is that they drink blood, are immortal, and move fast, it really can’t be considered a TRUE Vampire movie. True vampires don’t sparkle, and they sure as hell don’t reproduce WITH humans…they reproduce by TURNING humans. Perhaps you should try to dominate another genre that you actually belong in.


    If I see another OMG WTF WHAR IS TWILIGHT LIEK SRSLY ITS THE BEST MOVIE EVRRRRR FO SHO, I will lose all faith in humanity as it exists. if it’s really THAT important, start your OWN site with your own list and invite all your little Twilighter fangirl friends who will actually care about your opinion. But that’s what it is…an opinion. It’s not a consensus.

  535. Buffalo

    It’s SO funny, but that fantastic Swedish girl actress who played Eli in “Let the Right One In”, do you know which movie she considers be one of her favorites right now?

    Well, it’s Twilight!

    It’s so WTF funny. And maybe a little sad but on the other hand, I’ve heard that a lot of the actors in Twilight really liked LTROI.

  536. Larry

    Hey didn’t see it in the list but you should really read “Let The Right One In” by John Lindqvist and then check out the movie of the same name…it’s really good

  537. rob

    OMFG, if you thought Twilight was a good movie, then you really need to be shot in the fucking head.

    Books fine, movie was just another teenie-pop full of ugly fuckers acting badly to half a story line. it was naff!

  538. ~vampire*nympho~

    I love all vampire movies (good or bad) especially Twilight, for all u fuckers who will not leave that movie alone, shut the fuck up cause u bitches obviously dont kno shit! 4 all of you peoples 4 Twilight I respect u. However i will say read the books first cause they are better. Books always beat the movies.

  539. ~vampire*nympho~

    i love all vampire movies (good or bad) espcially Twilight. For those people who love and respect twilight i’m all 4 what you people gotta say. Everyone else needs to shut the fuck up cause u bitches obviously dont kno shit and are just jealous cause you cant look as good as Bella, Jacob, or Edward. So do your family and the world a big favor and kill yourselves now. However 4 everyone out there read the books first cause the books, in my opinion, are always better than the movie. If you didnt like the movies fine. Try the books cause you’ll probably like them better. But geez dont go putting up a bunch of messages on the internet saying it sucked. That’s what’s commonly known as a “DICK MOVE” and we dont have time for your bullshit.

  540. Jason Osz

    OK I can’t remember the name of this vampire movie, and cant find it. All I can remember is they capture a vampire and put him in like a school or hospital and surround him with ultraviolet lights to weaken him and have a mound of grains so that he wont be able to count them all. can’t remember anything else, except I want to watch it again! I’d appreciate if someone knew what it was called.

  541. morbius

    the movie your looking for is the sequile to dracula 2000, it is ‘dracula 2 assention’ i think it was way better than the first one despite the obvious plot holes

  542. chinkyjackie

    i think 30 days of night deserve to be part of this list. that movie totally scared the s*$%&^&t out of me. :-)

  543. Lorna loves Louis

    You should have put Interview With the Vampire further up the list. It deserves no. 1 !!!!!!

  544. Britney

    Sonia, dude are you joking? Twilight is not #1. Its a very tame version of a vampire. It doesn’t even need to be on the list of the best. maybe Second best.

    Dracula20XX and Antonio. Hello! Queen of the Damned was a good movie and should be on this list. I totally disagree with you.

    I think Bram Stolkers Dracula should be number 1.!

  545. Vampirelover

    P.S – Twilight can go suck a dick and fucking burn. Bad actors and horrible story. TWILIGHT is so BAD that if a real vampire watches this it would die. It’s only meaningful to teenage girls and little girls who don’t know nothing about vampires. Watch Let The Right One In. It’s way better.

    I’ll agree!:) dude who ever wrote that is the best… beside Twilight is ain’t that good… and the werewolf looks like a bear…? hey do u have guys any info about Shadow land by Alison Noel or Night World? these are the best books EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

  546. noemi

    helooo whoever made the last comment on twilight needs to shut up i mean i admit it the movie wasnt as good as the book but it was very good i loved it and again y isnt it up here heloooooo r u like an idiot or something great movie

  547. VaMpIrE

    queen of the damned …underworld 1,2 i 3 …van helsing…trqbwa da sa 4elnata troika a queen of the damned da e na 1-wo mqsto…

  548. Kevin

    Erm, sorry but your wrong **Bump “Let the right one in” from your 71 to #1 thankyou have a nice day, and if you are thinking ive never heared of this movie, then get it, sit your ass down and watch it, it will be the best movie you ever seen let alone the best vampire movie. Thankyou hope to see the list change by tomorrow!

    Also if all you other people havent seen it get netflix and instant stream it on your computer or something you need to see it, its fin awesome, plus the fact that they thought it was so good they are coming out with an american version but us americans like to put to much of one thing in a movie, we overdue everything, if you havent noticed that already ( 1 dollar burgers, upgrade meal to large 79cents ect ect… )

    Movie is “Let the right one in”

    You will love it

    Then you will love me for telling you that you will love it

  549. kopax

    This has been a highly educational thread for someone who thought they knew a fair bit about vampire movies. There’s a lot for me to check out – yay! Thanks to everyone who’s preceded me.

    In that spirit, can I suggest people check out a UK made TV show (BBC3) called “Being Human” – it’s not exclusively a vampire show, but vampires play a big part. Contains adult themes and situations, as the disclaimer guy says…

    Also the South Park episode where old-school goths become increasingly infuriated at the rise of the Twilight fans, and Butters becomes convinced he’s a vampire, is like a cartoon version of much of the debate above, but even funnier.

    For what it’s worth, I liked the Twilight books and movie. They’re not in the same league artistically as Let The Right One In or Cronos or 30 Days… (for example) but they were entertaining and I thought they tapped into some of the interesting aspects of the vampire myth in an fairly novel way (morality, desire & control, outsider status, the cost of outliving people).

    Why rip your knitting over varying depictions of fictional creatures?

  550. sandy

    does any one know the name of the vampire movie where zack saves sarah from nash. she goes to the club musie for a concert.

  551. ilene

    All of those people who are so stupid- saying all those rude comments about the vampire movies…just SHUT THE HELL UP!!! God! There’s nothing you can do about it. Shut up.

    If you don’t like the movie, well, so hate it all you want. But it’s wrong to say bad stuff about movies.

    well if anybody wants to say bad and rude things about this comment, well….





    thank you for wasting your time reading this comment…

  552. Arcticlycan

    I strongly suggest the list be revised. “Let the Right One In” is a freggin masterpiece of the vampire genre….. the shear power of the story communicates at the deepest level… put it before most of those other films.

  553. morbius

    people who call for changes to the list.

    this list is fantastic for one and secoundly i would consider it a list based on a specific sample, the sample being when it was made.

    if the list was regulerly updated then its point would be lost; the flavour of the week would sit in the place of classic master peaces.

  554. plzhelpfindthis

    I am not sure if this qualifies, but I would really appreciate help,
    I remember watching an anime where there is a vampire in a casket in one of the opening scenes. However there is a group hunting him, and one of the guys is hooked up to a life support machine and can go into spirit form to fend of various evil entities. He ends up dying in a last ditch effort to save his party after he goes into spirit form. If anyone knows what movie this is, plz email Thank you very much!

  555. DRac-o

    Well, thank the stars, there’s ‘True Blood’!

  556. Ultra-Violet

    Wow, amazing.

    Good list, for everyone who wants *Their Movie* to be number one, just go to IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, do some simple math and see where it would rank. I actually think the rating system is great, although I have to wonder why they chose to put Anime on here, oh well.

    What never ceases to amaze me is the majority of Twilight fans. I did see the movie, I did read the books, I enjoyed both. When I did the math it was a 5.75 landing it around #45. Thats cool. The math for Let the Right One In was like 8.12 or something, making it #2.

    Now, what I want to know is how all these millions of girls that are saying they read the books and that the books were better, by the way they write and their grammer I am kind of curious if they even -could- read the books. Becuase though the books can get kind of Emo, they are well written, with vocabulary for adults or at the very least someone who is literate in the English language.

    Ok, I went off on my tangent now, I am done. Thank You.


  557. malveya

    4 starters twilight was good but could have been better.

  558. Kirsi

    What the hell! Nosferatu wasn’t that good. Nor were half of these movies. Why is Underworld even one there? Both were just terrible. And Vampire in Brooklyn? ugh. Rethink your list.

  559. XenaFreak101

    You forgot
    Dracula 2: Asscension
    and Hellsing is quite excellent,even though i only saw the first 3 episodes.
    I was looking for a vampire movie to watch and settled on Fright Night.So,Thanks.

  560. ANW

    Hey, since you all seem to know a lot about vampire movies, I wonder if you could help me. I saw this one movie years ago and I thought it was pretty cool. I would like to see it again, but I don’t know the title or anything about it really. The storyline is that a girl goes to live with her older sister that owns I think it was a bar or a dance club. The younger sister doesn’t know that the other one is a vampire, but soon finds out. Oh, the older one runs the place with a few other vampire friends. Really the only scene I remember is that at the begining of the movie the girls are all chained to one pole and they chew off one of the girls legs to escape, or something like that. I think they were being ruled by some powerful vampire or something like that. Anyway, if anyone can help I’d really appreciate it. I’ve tried looking for it, but come up with so many different pointless things. Btw, I don’t know if it is a regular movie or a TV made movie. Thanks!

  561. Bandit a la mode

    This is basically a list of every vampire movie ever made except for Twilight.

  562. morbius

    dude this isnt even close to every vampire movie ever made, its a dent in a giant sub-genre, these are just the mainstreamish vampire films

  563. .

    Leave the tweens alone. Yes Twilight is a load of crap but the people watching it are children. They will grow up and cringe about it later

  564. Zhen

    On that long list, they forgot about, a Director who created the Black Mask (Played By Jet Li)

    Tsui Hark’s: Vampire Hunters (2002)

    it’s orinally in Cantonese by can be changed to English. Great movie in my opinion and has a very unique theory about Chinese vampires.

  565. JD

    How in the hell could you put that piece of crap sequel to Vampire Hunter D before the original–not to mention that it is within the top 10 in your list, and it is one of the most horrible sell-outs of a sequel (besides Fright Night 2) that I have ever seen?! Fright Night and the original Vampire Hunter D (which was a significant part of the inspiration for the whole Castelvania series) should definitely be making the top ten.

  566. katherine denny

    i hate this website it doesn’t have twilight and that is the best vampire movie

  567. Nat

    Great list, but the order is terror! I think underworld and Van Helsing should be way closer to the first.

    I’m writing a vampire story, it’s action-packed, funny, and romantic. Maybe I’ll sell it or get it published someday, I still don’t know what to name it, if you have any suggustions just name them and I’ll think about it

    you also forgot Twilight, Underworld 2, Underworld 3 rise of the lycans, and The Little Vampire!

  568. Nat

    The girl from Vampire Diaries is who I’m playing and she is not a vampire but the characters playing my best friend and her boyfriend [in the story not real life] are.

  569. serenenight

    hello!!!what about twilight??

    • Mayze

      It’s not there because Twilight is an awful vampire movie.
      The Twilight series is a grammatically incorrect, poorly written sexual fantasy of a deluded 37 year-old woman.
      One of Edward Cullen’s many hobbies is watching Bella sleep without her knowledge.
      Hiding behind the glitter and seductively airbrushed looks, Edward is a 109 year-old pedophile.
      Bella has the personality of a glove.
      First of all, there is far too much character development, and not enough character to develop, if that makes sense. I mean to say that the characters are flat and predictable and there is zero mystery remaining past the introduction. All of the characters can be summed up in whole in one or two words. Bella is clumsy. Edward is sparkly. Bella’s dad is quiet. So on and so forth. The end. No more development of character.
      One sentence summary of the entire series: A girl falls in love with a vampire, who she winds up with together forever despite a few minor discrepancies.That’s it, really. The rest is fluffy, boring filler.
      Also, Bella Swan is the main character of the series. Somehow, despite being horribly plain and clumsy (and not to mention a new student at her high school in a really small town), she manages to have several guys fawning all over her without any effort at all. throughout the series, Bella becomes completely dependent on the “love of her life,” a vampire. She is insecure and thrives on his attention When she finds out that he had been watching her sleep, she is delighted, rather than being understandably freaked out. By the end of the first movie, she is more than ready to give up any ambition to go to college or pursue a normal life, and strongly wishes to be a vampire so she can become immortal and spend the rest of her life with a boy she basically just met. And how does Stephanie Meyer continue this sickening teenage codependent affair? By making Bella continually more and more submissive to “her man” throughout the series. By the time she’s eighteen, she’s a pregnant vampire.

      And an open letter to ALL Twilight fans.
      Okay, okay. You like Twilight. I get it. Now please stop plaguing the internet with a million MS Paint “signs” dedicated to your love of it. Stop shoving Twilight down my throat on every website I visit. Just stop already. If I see another Facebook Bumper Sticker about Twilight, I will scream.And please, please, please stop talking about “Edward”. You want to meet a guy like Edward? Really? He’s not even real, people. It’s a character in a book. I promise you, no matter how much you whine, you will never, ever, ever find a perfect and sparkly 107-year-old vampire who will fall in love with the scent of your blood, and frankly, I think you’re really odd for even wanting that in the first place. Seriously, though, cut it out. Edward is not real and you’re annoying the rest of us. Also, could you please stop comparing Twilight to the Harry Potter series? Really, I mean it. Harry Potter is far better than Twilight on so many levels, and that’s not even just personal opinion. Nobody could deny the fact that the plot of the Harry Potter series is just so much more developed, and it’s just an enjoyable read for all ages. Harry Potter has lasting impressions on everybody that reads it.. for YEARS! Twilight will be forgotten in the next two years, tops.

      TL;DR Twilight is one of the worst series I’ve ever laid eyes on.

      I APOLOGIZE FOR THE RANT. I REALLY DO. But Twilight gets me so worked up.

  570. Dara

    uhhhhh…some flicks on here are VERY SUCKY!!! Queen of the Damned?Give me a break.

  571. twilight sucks


  572. Nat

    omg, the guy above me, twilight sucks, is a fucker [stop saying bad words you asshole] vampires totally exist if you know how to look for them, same with werewolves.

  573. abe

  574. Victoria

    the list really sucks…no offense! i see that you must really love the classics but really….nosferatu??? if your ever gonna make a new list, you know, updated, make twilight at number 2 then new moon at number 1. there are also some movies on the list that are pretty cool too. like bram stoker’s dracula with wynona ryder and ect. GO NEW MOON!!! GO TEAM SWITZERLAND!!!!!!!!!-well actually i like team edward but i feel sorry for team jacob…GO TWILIGHT SAGA(now that we all can agree on-except for some who say it sucks….>:(

  575. Victoria

    gosh!!!! give me a break! if u hate twilight so much then dont watch it it really pisses me off! i respect those who dont like it but those who say that it “f*cking sucks”….that’s just wrong…by the way….go team switzerland!!!!!i like team edward more but i really feel sorry for jacob, but a better solution would be…go twilight saga!!! i also like bram stoker’s dracula but it’s a bit old and the pretty wynona ryder is old already….sad

  576. Yasemin

    I can’t believe they didn’t put Twilight in the top 70.

  577. maria

    Twilight i think is a great vampire movie

  578. Jen

    well anyways im just saying i love it and sometimes i get boring of it but i would still love it and read the books some poeple just dont understand…

  580. Mufallaka

    OMG Twilight is a good Vamp movie but it’s not really scary which I think this list is kinda devoted to. Why are some peoples names in red though?

  581. Alexiel

    5. Martin (1977)
    that one is just plain F***** up i mean come on you don’t even have to look that close to notice that guy is wearing “FAKE” fangs,you know the cheap kind you get at any store for holloween? If you don’t see it look closely at the fangs and you’ll notice just a little on the top part you see the guys real teeth! Now if that isn’t the cheapest,poor excuse for a vampyre movie of ALL time then i don’t know what is. *sigh* it’s so damn sad it pisses me off to know end. But hell i guess that was the general idea…damn elders blah >.

  582. LeXi_^^

    “True blood” rules!!! that’s the best vampire movie! I love it!!!!
    and “Moonlight”!!!!!

  583. sasha

    some of these pictures are scary !!!!!!!

  584. torrey

    Where’s Twilight? Twilight should be number one.

  585. Hailey Taylor

    Has anybody seen the movie “the vampires assistant” it is written by anne rice .It is literally the best movie I have ever seen in my whole life!

  586. girl needs vampfriend!

    okay so first of all Twilight sucked and im not just saying that Bcuz there were vampires. dude… van helsing was awesome and it sooooooooo totally bled out rocked (okay that was Bcuz of the vampires). Vampires are awesome! If you love vamps u need 2 watch Van Helsing or read The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod! 1, 2, and like u so wanna read 3! you dont need 2 like reading just need 2 like easy-&-fun-2-read books. Im a teenage girl mother fucker so stop bagging on us and stop the shitty Twiglight your all fuckin craz and u need 2 go suck dick assholes! Twilight sucks and u kno it! ur all lunies with no imagination! Vampires r cool and possibly real, and THEY DONT GLOW LIKE FUCKIN DIAONDS!!!!!!!!!!!

  587. Aline

    I like the list, full of classics. I was amazed that Nosferatu is number one. And also that I’ve watched most of these, hehe…

    I just had to leave a comment because it annoys me so f*n much that after Twilight came out vampires became a matter of interest for pubescent shiny pink girls who love it because of the so called good looking kid playing the “predator’s” role in the movie. I have watched it and read it as I teach (therefore study) language and enjoyed it as a book/movie with a totally different view on vampires. I just absolutely hate the outcome.

    (though I am forced to agree that while movies like Bordello of Blood and Dracula 2000 make the list, Twilight might as well just be listed there somewhere)

  588. katethegreat888

    personally i think u all need to get out more.

  589. tex

    you missed it

  592. Lexie

    Twilight would be too new to be put on the list. Most of these movies have been out for a time to seen how the trends go about .

    besides…. twilight isnt a vampire movie but it would defintly go as number 1 as a suck ass high school drama movie ^_^

  593. sterling

    Left The Right One In was great film too. Definitely better than most on that list. Left too many unanswered questions though.

  594. sterling

    Let The Right One In. A must see film. Definitely better than most on the list. My only problem with it is that t left too many unasnswered questions.

  595. Buffalo


    This is the new updated list. Exactly as the original list, the ranking is only based on votes at IMDb and reviews at Rottentomatoes, nothing else. No personal thoughts, just plain mathematics. New movies on this list are Twilight, Thirst, Let the Right One In and of course Roman Polanski’s The Fearless Vampire Killers (forgotten before?)

    70. The Forsaken (2001) 4.20
    69. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) 4.70
    68. The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1974) 4.70
    67. Blacula (1972) 4.80
    66. Van Helsing (2004) 4.80

  596. Buffalo

    Sorry, Polanski’s movie was on the list, just not with todays average point.

  597. Molly

    Twilight is terrible, and shouldn’t even be considered a vampire film in my opinion.
    But I think the one thing this list is really missing is 30 Days Of Night, since that film/graphic novel is AMAZING. It’s probably the only vampire film that has genuinely frightened me.

  598. Viin

    thank god twilight isn’t up there that is a disgrace to good movies…hell good books…Yea you twilight faggots I went there

  599. cassy

    Forgot a few more for future reference:

    Theres The Vampire’s Assistant (cirque Du Freak) comming out later this month. I’m not sure if you’re including anime series as well, but I did notice some up there. If your including anime series don’t forget about Vampire Knight, and Nightwalker. For TV series don’t forget about Blood Ties, Moonlight, and True Blood.

    Moon Child, it’s a japanese film but it was really really good!
    The Vampire Clan
    A Perfect Creature (BRILLIANT FILM)
    Underworld 3?

  600. oasis

    ok, “cronos” isn’t even about vampires! and old vampire movies arn’t the only good vampire movies!! there are a ton a vampire movies WAY better than these. this site DEFINITELY didn’t help me!!!

  601. Ingy

    Hello. I like a lot of these movies, but there are one specific I’m looking for i have NO clue what it is called, and i dont find it anywhere. It was about a normal city were vampires werent dangerious, they were sophisticated and just curious of human life(im not sure at all, because i only saw half of it and the end, so im sorry if i havent gotten all the data right) but there was a virus that made the vampire blood thirsty and crazy. There was a detective, female, human who was working on this case, and a vampire working with her, whom, i think, loved her. This one infected vampire took hostages, and therefore they blocked up that part of the city the vampire lived in.. i dont remember much, its a really long time since i saw it, but it would be really helpful if someone knew which im talking of and would care to tell me!:)

  602. Jenny.

    Wow. A lot of Twilight Weaboos. ‘Oh look at me, I don’t have fangs! I sparkle in the light and I can read your thoughts! Oh, how wonderful! And my sister, oh she’s a pixie! She can have visions about when you’re going to die because she was tortured! Oh, wow!’
    What about 30 Days of Night or the Little Vampire? They’re quite good.
    (Coming from a twelve-year-old -sigh-)

  603. Buffalo

    Following movies didn’t make it:
    • The Vampire Assistant (to new, no votes yet at IMDb)
    • Moon Child (no reviews at rotten)
    • Vampire Clan (no reviews at rotten)
    • Perfect Creature (no reviews at rotten)

    These made it:
    # 68 Underworld – Rise of the Lycans (average 4.85)
    # 63 Little Vampire (average 5.20)
    # 44 30 days of Night (average 5.80)
    # 5 Cronos (average 7.75)

  604. Duskkodesh

    No Twilight should NOT be included as those aren’t vampires they’re faeries. ^_~

    Secondly, Great list bad order. Thanks so much for including some classic Christopher Lee (best Dracula ever) and the personal favorite Subspecies. You should have mentioned that they filmed in Romania though. Beautiful castles, and classic special effects.

  605. may

    no one said that vampires must have fangs, can fly etc. so putting twilight in is not a felony either.

  606. Delfino

    Love Bram Stoker’s Dracula…but my favorite vampire of all time is Tom Cruise,Interview With A Vampire was amazing

  607. kamijo101

    This list was not about good vampires or bad vampires It was about Vampires in movies plan and simple and those of you who thing that Twilight should be on the list. Sure why not it had vampires in it. They might not be typical vampires, that were use to. But things change…..Get use to it.

    FYI: Twilight has had more of a fallowing then any of these movies!!!!



  608. john shayo

    wao,its ao interteiment to me to watch vampires movies but the vampiers movies which i aprishiet is underworld creation$revolution and all blade

  609. ania

    very interesting list of films. The most curious thing it was about mexican titles: nostradamus? or rock and roll wrestling women?, h a hhaa. So cool!

    i hope to find and watch some of them
    thank you .

  610. Duskkodesh

    Funny how the people that say a list isn’t important are the first ones to yell. These are the same people that think that anything in black and white or in 35MM film must have been aweful.

    This list is about quality vampire movies so twilight (being a shallow romance plot) doesn’t fit. These are mostly cult movies fit for showing to a classics based audience. Trying to put Twilight with these would be like throwing Cemetary Man in with Sean of the Dead simply because they both have zombies.

    BTW watched Blood and Donuts for the first time the other day. Loved it! completely a cult film though.

  611. drakkar

    The list is obsolete!

    #1: Let The Right One In

    Please update.

  612. vampy

    i have seen this movies but they forgot to put it the erotic vampire movies…it is so funny to see that types of movies….i don t know if i wrote ok because i m from spain but i hope you undestand me…….i love movies with vampires

  613. SenorChad

    I definitely agree that Nosferatu should be number one. It still gives me chills to this day.

    Twilight sucked so bad, I got a charlie horse halfway through the movie. Three chapters into the book, I had to put it down because I felt my manhood slipping away and I started growing a vagina.

    Let The Right One In indeed deserves a place in the top 10, top 20 at least. It was a modern-day masterpiece and one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, period.

    Van Helsing should be stricken from the history of cinema. That was one of the worst pieces of crap that I think has ever been made.

  614. Elle

    SenorChad – As the list got shorter and shorter I was half expecting ‘Let the right one in’ to be either #1 or #2 (pretty much knowing Nosferatu would be top though), so when I saw it wasn’t on the list I knew either the creator of said countdown was either a moron or the list was made before it’s creation. It was the latter (thankfully).

    ‘Let the right one in’ is spectacular.
    One of my 4 favourite films of all time.

  615. Derek Davidson

    “Let the Right One In” is definitely & deservedly @ the top of this list….a tasteful film done with superb nuance…

  616. BloodLust

    I think you guys are right twilight is nothing but a piece of shit (this goes to those of you who think that). Also what its doing is ruining the reputation of all awesome vampire. What twilight needs to do is GO SUCK A DICK!!!!!!

  617. SenorChad

    Elle – I’m glad someone around here thinks so. It seems like the majority of people on here think it deserves a spot, so this list definitely needs to be revised.

    BloodLust – Twilight’s already doing that, my friend. It’s sucking the hormonal dicks of every pre-pubescent Twitard out there.

  618. Rick

    How about “House of Dark Shadows”? This movie was based on the television soap opera … and Barnabas Collins was one mean dude in it! Good for it’s time period … I’d love to see a “re-telling” of the story, complete with present day make-up and effects!

  619. vampire lovers

    4 me twilight is the best vampire movie but its quite romantic vampire movie

  620. vampire lovers

    twilight is the best vampire movie but its quite romantic vampire movie

  621. dre dogg

    I agree with ScytheNoire. Who are these so called professional movie critics? lol They placed most of the greatest vampire movies at the bottom of the list. Old movies are not the best. Classics , but not the best. I think that a good vampire movie should scare the hell outta you. Thanks for the list though, i’ve spotted a few that I haven’t heard of. My favorites are the remake of salem’s lot and john carpenter’s vampires.

  622. Tiffany

    Thank you for not putting Twilight in the list.

  623. nia lepcha

    i luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv!u jacob black/taylor lautner.

  624. Mina

    Vampires are NOT sparkly.

  625. Mina

    This list was written 2 years ago. It definitely wouldn’t have “Twilight” up there. I hope the author updates the list.

  626. Mina

    “Twilight” is a movie about vampires, but it isn’t a vampire movie. Just like “Once Bitten” with Lauren Hutton and Jim Carrey, it is a movie with vampires, or “Little Vampire”. They have vampires in them, but they’re NOT truly vampire movies.

  627. Thank God For No Glitter

    I am, over all, very happy with this list.

    And I’m so happy Twilight isn’t a part of it. That teen-boppy-twidie cult needs to come to an abrupt end…

    and i’m pretty sure that anyone who mentions Twilight as a good reference has never read, or watched a good vampire book or movie. Mostly just ditsy teen girls who feel accomplished for finally reading a book longer than 100 pages, and lonely middle aged women. vampires don’t sparkle, they drink blood, and should hate sunlight….

    great list!

    -Thank God For No Glitter

  628. TeamTwilight

    I am completely sad that Twilight is not number 1….
    Why not? It should make the list atleast near number one, and New Moon to follow, I love Blade just as much as the next fan, but you have to give Twilight the credit it deserves, it won best film @ the MTV Movie awards! C-mon add it already!!!
    and yes its “Vampires and Werewolves”! (=

  629. AntD919

    Just a message to all you Vampire movie lovers out there who have not yet seen “Let the Right One In”, get off this page RIGHT NOW! Go to your Netflix site, or your local video store and GET THIS MOVIE! You will not be disappointed whether you are in the “Twilight fan” group or the “anti-Twilight” group. It is the most original vampire movie in decades yet it does not massacre the vampire mythos as most of its “romantic vampire” movie predecessors have done. It’s popularity has suffered greatly due to it being in Swedish. After a time you forget you are reading the dialogue anyway. My advice though is see it now before Hollywood puts out the inevitable (and dreaded) American version and everyon says “oh, I’ll just see the English version instead”. The movie is perfect as it is and the story, I feel, will lose it’s luster when it is Americanized. Also, if you are a bookworm as I am, AFTER seeing the movie, read the book. It adds a ton of background info and answers some of the questions that the movie doesn’t spell out for you.
    On a side note, I also think 30 Days of Night deserves a spot on this list. Up until the final 20 mins it was an incredible story perfectly adapted to film. I didn’t buy the way it ended but it was still a really good vampire movie.

  630. Rick

    Can somebody please tell me the name of this vampire movie or at least an actor or actress who played in it? My sister and I seen this film only once in 1962 and it was never broadcasted on TV again. The film begins with a young married couple traveling in their (car-pickup truck?) up a narrow winding country road on a stormy rainy night. All of a sudden, the road is blocked just ahead of them by a group of vampires. The vampires force the couple to a pillared cellar and each of the couple is tied with their backs pressed to the pillars. Then the group of vampires bite the (screaming) couple to death.

  631. VampZero

    ok i know all you perpubescent teens love twighlight but i would like you to consider a few things

    a) this list was made before twighlight

    b) twighlight the movie was terrible (book okay but seemed to be just the wet dream of the author)

    c) even if you liked the books (i did read them and they were okay) VAMPIRES DO NOT SPARKLE!

    d) finally how many of you came to this site before twighlight came out, most (not all) of twightlight fans are teens following a fad. for both side of the twighlight arguement ask any english teacher and they would agree that twighlight is not a great work of art but is probably better than most people can write.

  632. Willa

    TO All OF THE FANS OF VAMPIRE MOVIES: correct me if i`m wrong..but i think there is ONE other movie you all forgotten(since you all put twilight, and other not so much vampire movies in the line…what about: SKINWALKERS…hmmm i thought that was good enough to make the list,what say you?i know its a mixed movie,but scary enough if you compare w all those other comic movies(even this is NOT a comic) atleast deserves to be rememered,though it`s not a direct vampire cut movie…
    i liked twilight,but i also liked Vamp(grace jones), Near Dark, Van helsing,let the right one in,frostbite,The Lost Boys,Blade,UnderWorld,Fright Night,Interwiew w…,and some more…AND even this tv serie:Moonlight is worth 2 be mentioned,I even liked :Buffy…the movie from the 80`s…i\ve seen most the movies of vampires,and i think it must be mentioned that here we have a generation gap of wich we should remember,therefor the taste of liking in this genre is most likely to be separated..this is why we have thwilight or not twilight side..the NOT side remember these older,more scary,darker movies wich shares the other side on a much darker level….the YES for Twi,is the younger generation,wich sees this as the more gothic-romantic side,wich may come of this social liking of the gotich music/style/movies with more romantic entanglement..I must say…i liked Twilight,but i also like the REAL scary ones..I\m glad i have the choice to choose both sides in this matter:) :) :) !!! Vampire Love,from Norway:)

  633. Vampireeee-4ever

    where is twilight i don’t see it ?
    i should be number 1 ,throught….

  634. nociva

    great list, some films I need to go see that I was not aware of. It should be updated: perhaps add 30 Days of Night and Let the Right One In and see how they tally up?

    and please, do not add Twilight, not even as an honorable mention.

  635. Caedo

    Twilight can go die in a fire, along with all the Twi-tards.

  636. Are you joking me?

    Are you joking me?

    15. Interview with the Vampire
    50. Underworld
    58. Underworld: Evolution

    Only these three movies should have been in the top 10. And yet in top 10 are even some flicks at best.
    Next time when making a list make a research on the domain. The ratings from IMDB have no realistic meaning, few people are bothered to vote and people who are passionated on the domain do not hang around that site.

  637. Team L.T.R.O.I

    wow, this is some thread!!,

    The Lost Boys was my fave movie for a long time, put the cool in vamp.
    Liked Fright Night aswell – these two are probably up there for me on account of being an 80′s kid
    Enjoyed Bram Stokers, largely due to the immesurable talent that is Gary Oldman
    The Underworlds were shiny, helped by the Beckensale siren

    To April – mostly in agreement, you sound,dareisay …delicious, however, quote “Nosferatu DESERVES to be first, seeing as it WAS THE FIRST” – not sure about this?? where whould we draw the line…worried about your wardrobe!?!

    To Morbius – you clearly know your stuff chap, some great points and recom’s but hey, chill on the twilight teenies man!!
    Surely we have to conceed there is at least a place for it – sour though it tastes. Can’t hurt the indie scene cannit? if the subculture grows. p.s. i happily forgive your typo’s

    To Buffalo – thanks for your updated list. Nice to have the purely mathematical version, from the top 2 sources, and i think it truly puts Twilight where it belongs…. on the list, but low on it. I agree with whoever said “it’s a romance movie with vamps in it”
    Also, and much more importantly,
    it has introduced me to “Let the right one in”
    wow, what a movie. It’s truly beautiful, and oh so sad. I was moved. A deserved No.1 and straight into my alltime top 2 movies of any genre. Quite atmospheric I thought and the girl’s performance is absolutely 1st rate. I downloaded the dubbed version by mistake but still watched it twice, now i’m d/l the subbed vers. and ordering the book.

  639. Tom

    I remember back in the early seventies watching a B&W vampire movie on tv (saturday late night circuit) that started out with the characters taking a horse drawn sleigh ride to the counts castle in the mountains. Besides Dracula, there was an older man, a young man and of course a pretty young lady. The movie was probably from the 40′s. Any one have an idea or two or three or four which one this was? Thanks

  640. bookie

    What about I am Legend? those creatures do resemble vampires a lot.

    I found it to be a very good movie too.

  643. Alan Dawson

    I am really waiting for “Tim Burton’s Dracula”
    because he is the one who can really bring out the spirit of this great character. Most of the films are making fun of Dracula, sorry but I really hate what directors have done so far except Christopher Lee’s “Horror of Dracula”
    Good Luck Tim Burton! I want it in your way!

  644. deathtotwilight

    to all u twilight lovers, vampires DON’T sparkle in sunlight the burst into flames and DIE!!! werewolf don’t look like wolfs there creatures that stand on two lags and they would rip your head off no love you. I am glad they didn’t make this list they don’t derive to be on it. f**k twilight

  645. corey sinks

    this is stoupid, haff the stuff you think is true well your rong. And the movies are way beyod stoupid.And trust me I know wellll, because i amONE I am 13 year OLD i’ve been one for 3000 years and thats a long time i know. You tell eny one i,ll kill you chunks by chunks got to go dinners calling biy :]

  646. Reaptress

    Twilight is NOT the best fucking vampire of all time, that’s why it’s not on the list. There where a few good ones, knew Nosferatu would be number 1. Most of you can’t even spell, so reading your stupidity is seriously HYSTERICAL. It’s called right click spell check. Thanks. Goodbye.

  647. laylaa

    what abouuuuuuut TWILIGH SAGA

  648. Arinomamadeii

    Deathtotwilight and Are you joking me i agree with you guys 100%!!!

    Underworld, Interview with the Vampire, and Queen of the damned should have been in the top 10….

  649. Twilight Freak 4 life!


  650. joseph

    Some nice movies but really Crappy ranking.

  651. Tris

    The 1987 Lost Boys, in my opinoin, is by far the best vampire film out there. I recommend it to everyone who is a fan of vampires.

  652. Ashi

    i was so glad to see ‘Alucard’ mentioned. And also other movies in anime … it’s not that usual. Made me happy to see they were not forgotten :)

  653. Kristoffer J

    I think “Nosferatu” looks (haven’t seen it) very good. Planed to see it in my class :P

    Underworld is very goooooood!!!

  654. Kristoffer J

    I think “Underworld Evolution” should have gotten a better place.
    On my list it’s #1\2#
    Underworld owes!!!!

  655. Fuck twilight


    1. those so-called vampires can stand sun light and they do cast a reflection ina a mirror, they don’t even have vampire fangs.
    2. the werewolfs are not following the rules either, werewolfs are supposed to become werewolfs only at full moon, how come they are out in daylight as well? as any other time they wish it seemed like.
    3.those vampires shows mercy,
    4. when bella got bitten by that james, and edwards sucked the venom out of her, how come he could bite her without infecting her with venom and james could? makes sense ? nope. so unrealistic it can get. there u got yr twilight fag wannabe vampire movies. they stink and they only ppl who think they’re good are those who don’t know what vampires are and how they work.

    @ last comment:
    Dude, your talking about what realistic and not with vampires, which doesn’t even exist… since their made up from the beginning it’s not more then fair that some people choose to make them appear different.
    I’m not a fan of twilight either, but if you ain’t got anything thats of value for other’s to hear then shut your piehole.

    Lost Boys is surely a great vampire movie but Interview With the Vampire is by far the greatest vampire movie

    I have seen alot of Dracula and Vampires movie of my time. I had “I desire or “Desire the Vampire” from HBO it got tape over and Vampire 1979 made for TV and 1977 Dracula (BBC). Does any body have these movies? I found Lemora the lady Dracula on VHF few years ago. My number one Movie is 1979 Dracula.

    okay, i’ve read enough.

    I am glad that TWILIGHT is not on the list. This movie sucks. Every aspect of this movie, I consider a shit.

    For those who try to convince the REAL vampire fans like me, that TWILIGHT VAMPIRES are the real deal, like they are the CLOSEST vampire characters created, GIVE ME A BREAK. TWILIGHT FANS, I suggest to you go on an extensive research about vampires because a normal person would understand a simple research about vampires and will tell me that TWILIGHT VAMPIRES are not even close.

    Don’t effin try to tell me to go read the books first, because I already did, and I really, really regret ever laying a hand on it. Sure, it gave me the teeny feel about romance but, you wouldn’t be able to see the conflict about the human-vampire romance. They all just do snogging and kissing and stuff.

    Shut the hell up.

    P.S. Seeing this list, I still have a long way to go. I have to sse all these vampire movies.

    Interview with the Vampire, o goodness I’m thankful that it is on the top 20.

Yes, I am open to the fact that anyone can create their own vampire creature, with their own “special features” but the vampires we’re talking about just don’t make any sense. I’m sorry

    With regards to the person titled “TWILIGHT SUCKS, U KNOW WHY”

    I’m sure you’ll never see this post… but thought i’d have a rant at ya anyway!!

    To answer your first point, vampires are a myth… the rules of whether vampires can withstand sunlight or not can be twisted, which is what Stephanie Meyer did… the Myth is that they can’t come out in sunlight… well the vampires in Twilight can’t come out in sunlight otherwise it would be obviuos, what with the sparkling diamondish appearance of their skin. This topic could have much debate… but simply, it’s all MYTH, legends created over centuries… who’s to say what is right or wrong at this stage!

    The second point, if you’d bothered to read the books, it is pointed out by Edward in “Breaking Dawn” that they aren’t actually Werewolves (spelled correctly by the way), but shape shifters. They’re shape just happens to be of a wolf, most likely due to their ancestory, and American Indians/Native Americans history/link to wolves… Night Wolf in Mortal Kombat can also shift shapes at any time!!

    Point number three… It’s not exactly merciful to devour a bear/mountain lion/deer now is it, they just choose not to kill humans… that aside, Vampires have to live on blood, a lot of the legends say that vampires feed on the blood of goats, and other living beings including babies alone. The legend is fresh blood, not human blood exactly. Again, mythological things aren’t precise… just speculation/”chinese whispers”. Also, Angel and Spike in Buffy had remorse for their prey also! Anything can be twited, this is why we call it FICTION.

    Finally, Edward didn’t bite Bella… he sucked the venom out. He can also kiss her without infecting her, why didn’t you question that?? The venom is not in the saliva, but on the teeth… when they have contact directly with blood. Also, fangs are hollywood… the majority of vampire legends say nothing about fangs. In fact, they state that the being is not slim, ripped, beautiful, and luring, but monstrous, robust and purple skinned! Another myth nearly all Sci-Fi creations have neglected… and SO WHAT!

    I’m sure i’m wasting my breath here, but nobody said that fiction, especially when it comes to mythology/legend, has to be so clichee and can’t be twisted, or even changed entirely. It’s not as though i’m a huge fan of the Twilight Saga, or Stephanie Meyer’s writing for that matter, but to pick on such miniature details and not be open to exploration, derivation or an imagination is just rediculous. Next time you watch a Sci-Fi/Horror, try to be open minded, otherwise you’ll ruin it for yourself, and when you lash out, other people around you. The black guy, or the blonde haired and big boobed girl doesn’t always have to die first in a Serial Killer movie… let the author write whatever the hell he/she wants to write!

    Wow uh… no offense to you twilight lovers, but twilight has no place on this list. You guys are looking for teen romances, go plague their lists, not this one. For the most part there is a rather definite line between a fan of vampire fiction and a twilight fan.

    And SM’s vampires are not true vampires. It’s not a matter of being ‘open minded’, and don’t try to persuade me with the whole ‘they’re not real, they can be whatever the writer wants them to be’ bit. She could have called them anything and the fans would have gobbled it up because ‘Edward Cullen is so smexy!’. It’s just our luck she took something badass and warped it into … whatever the hell these glittery weirdo’s are.

    I read the first book back when they were still newish because a friend of mine loves them. Honestly, I’m not opposed to romance where vampires are concerned (…and when it’s not totally lame) so I read it. When I finished all I could think was ‘wtf? Well ok, whatever makes you happy.’ I can’t believe the bull this series has managed to stir up…

  669. katie

    Ok first off. wtf . twilight should not be on here. and if it does it should be at the end. i mean seriously. twilight isnt even about the vampire part its more about the relationship between bella and edward. its basically a love story. not just about vampires like this list is about. so whateverrr =p

  670. vampireloverr

    Ok Ok vampire may not be real. but as those legends about vampires like from across the sea. as far as i know. they did “Not” sparkle =D so twilight is a total bust to what people know to be as vampires. and as far as i know. people only sparkle with glitter. and guys with glitter are usually gay =D

  671. Becca

    HELP!!! I am trying to find a vampire move I remember loving maybe 10 years ago or so. It was about this female scholar who was for some reason hunting down a vampire. There was something about a special vampire scholarly society. She searched for him in this special vampire only club… eventually she finds him, they fall in love, and in the end her turns her. In the final scene they walk off hand in hand into eternity. Anyone see it???

  672. vampire_girl

  677. Dani

    I think new moon and twilight deserve a spot on the list. Instead of fright night and fright night part 2.Lost boys 2 should also be on there. Lost boys should be number 1. Who picked these movies,and why did they pick them and not TWILIGHT!
