100 Days of Halloween: TOP 20 Vampire Movies of All Time! (Part 2 of 4)
In our last post, we counted down from 20 to 16 on the TOP 20 Vampire Movies of All Time list. Let’s get on with our countdown…
15. Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1992).
C’mon! We needed a comedy vampire movie in here. Plus, we’d be…rebuffed (ha!)…by fans the world over if we didn’t include this film. The real question is, do you think Kristy Swanson (movie) or Sarah Michelle Gellar (t.v. series) pulled off the better Buffy?
We hear there’s a reboot on the way…
14. Horror of Dracula (1958).
Original title “Dracula”
Christopher. Lee. Need we say more?
13. Blade (1998).
…and we just heard this week that Marvel now has the rights to Blade once again. Hmmm…
And, no…the sequels will not make the list, but who can deny the power of Blade?!
12. Dracula (1979).
Frank Langella as Dracula in a usually underrated film based on the revival of the theatrical Dracula play in which Bela Lugosi himself had starred. Originally to be filmed in black and white, but filmed in color at the insistence of the studio. Color later washed out to nearly b&w in releases for Laserdisc and DVD, giving it the look and feel that most will remember it by. Notably, Laurence Olivier as Van Helsing.
11. Shadow of the Vampire (2000).
Oh my…John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe together in a film about the making of the classic vampire film Nosferatu. Can we get enough of this?
So, there you have it fellow monsters and monster hunters. Oh, wait…here’s our honorable mention for the day:
Kiss of the Damned (2012).
*Warning: This movie contains several explicit scenes. Pay attention to the rating on this one folks. A unique and daring film that truly captures the essence of the genre. Lush and provocative. The music for this film is compelling and dazzles. Not for everyone, but definitely worth the mention here.
Tomorrow we breach the TOP 10…
Happy Halloween 2014!
