100 Days of Halloween: TOP 20 Vampire Movies Of All Time! (Part 3 of 4)
Here we go…into the TOP 10 Vampire Movies Of All Time (according to our EXTREMELY scientific method of researching, categorizing, listing, and numbering…of course…hehe)!
If you’ve missed the previous lists counting down from #20, you can find them here:
And now number…
10. Near Dark (1987).
Gun-toting, motorcycle-gang-type, American Southwest vampires! You know you want some. 🙂
9. Fright Night (1985).
Horror. Comedy. Vincent Price. Vampires. Yes! Hard to beat. And, no…the sequels will not make the list (any of them).
8. 30 Days of Night (2007).
One of the better, more recent, vampire movies. Brutal, with a setting and expanding mythology that begs to be consumed by any true vampire aficionado!
7. Let The Right One In (2008) / Let Me In (2010).
Let The Right One In is the Swedish film based on the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist (who also wrote the screenplay). Let Me In is the English remake of Let The Right One In. Both deserve to be on this list in our opinion.
6. Salem’s Lot (1979).
Yes, yes, we are aware this was originally released as a 2-part mini-series for television. However, it is still considered a movie (for T.V. release), and STILL one of only a handful of films that we hear people consistently say, “That movie scared the HELL out of me!” It is on the list, and deserves to be.
Tonight’s Honorable Mention:
The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967).
Roman Polanski’s comedy-horror-vampire-dance, originally titled “The Fearless Vampire Killers, or Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are in My Neck”, is what many consider to be one of his very best films. Though comedy-horror, and though filmed in 1967, DO NOT feel as though it’s appropriate for family viewing with the kiddos. As most of the films on this list, it is not. It is worthy of our Honorable Mention tonight, however.
And tomorrow…the TOP 5!!!
Happy Halloween 2014!
