Top 10 – Vampire Movies

In no particular order.

Here’s a list of my personal top ten favorite vampire movies. Keep in mind I am not suggesting these are the “best” movies out there, just my favorites. These are all movies I can watch again and again and they never get old.

 

Blade

Ok so not everyone loves this movie.  But Blade is a badass.  ‘Nuff said.

 

Cronos

An amazing Guillermo del Toro exploration of eternal life. Is it a vampire film? I’ll let you decide.

 

Innocent Blood

Watch it, you’ll see. John Landis of An American Werewolf… fame turns his attentions to vampires.

 

Vampire’s Kiss

What if you were just crazy and not really a vampire? Nicolas Cage puts on an incredible performance (including eating a live cockroach) in this drug-addled vision of Joseph Minion and Robert Bierman.

 

The Lost Boys

Who doesn’t love this overly campy, teenage buddy romp starring the Corey’s, Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric.

 

Byzantium

A fresh take on the vampire genre.

 

Near Dark

Bill Paxton and Lance Henriksen reunited right after Aliens. This is the result. I just can’t get enough of this film.

 

Let the Right One In

The original version of the film is much better than the US remake.

 

Only Lovers Left Alive

A great premise.

 

Razor Blade Smile

Most people won’t get it. But this is one of the most imaginative stories I’ve come across in vampiric cinema.
