Vampire films are truly unique because they are comprised of a mix of genres including: horror, comedy, romance, and science fiction.
1. The best vampire movie of all time is Blood for Dracula a.k.a. Andy Warhol’s Dracula which is a classic vampire film from the 70’s set in Italy. This movie is ranked number one because it does the best job at combining genres and presenting the vampire as a believable, yet horrible creature.
2. The second best vampire film is Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, a 2001 vampire extravaganza that features religious themes as well as martial arts scenes.
3. The third best vampire film is From Dusk Till Dawn which is a 1996 gore-fest with plenty of suspense and excellent cinematography, featuring a lot of people who inadvertently are forced to fight off a horde of ugly, shape-shifting vampires.
4. The fourth best vampire film is Buffy the Vampire slayer, a 1992 classic that inspired the television series of the same name. This movie is ranked number four because it was one of the first successful pop, teen, or high school movies that featured vampires.
5. The fifth best vampire movie is 2003’s Underworld which dramatically reveals the clashes between two mythological races: the Vampires and the Lycans. This movie features modern technology, and Matrix-like fight scenes.
6 & 7. The sixth and seventh best vampire movies are Blade I and Blade II which are very similar to Underworld in their theme, but like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, feature a vampire slayer named Blade.
8. The eighth best vampire film is Interview With a Vampire, the 1994 film that features Brad Pitt and is based on the far superior book of the same name by Anne Rice.
9. The ninth best vampire film is The Lost Boys which, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, features high school aged kids succumbing to peer pressure and fighting vampires.
10. The tenth best vampire film is Nosferatu the Vamypre, a 1970 vampire film directed by Herzog and starring Bruno Ganz – it is not to be missed, though it may not interest modern audiences used to the pyrotechnics of American films.
