I love writing vampire novels, but watching a good vampire movie is always fun too! Here are my

Top 10 favorites…
Top Ten Vampire movies: 

10) Love at First Bite – George Hamilton at his best! It’s cheesy and Dracula is tan, but it’s suave and silly fun! Definitely worth seeing if you get the chance.

9) Hotel Transylvania – This was a really cute animated flick about Dracula’s daughter growing up. It’s got a lot of heart hidden under the humor and not just for kids.

8) Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter – This is a fun vampire slaying flick with very evil and powerful vampires and our President learning to throw a mean axe. Totally fun flick!

7) Interview with a Vampire – This one was dark and moody and at times horrific. I thought the adaptation was pretty true to Anne Rice’s series and Tom Cruise really rose to the occasion to take on the role of Lestat. If you’ve never seen it before it’s worth a look.

6) Van Helsing – Hugh Jackman as a vampire slayer. Long Hair. Enough said! J Seriously though this one was another fun vampire movie and the Dracula was great! Very sexy and evil…

5) Fright Night (the remake) – I will be the first to admit that I cringed when I heard Colin Farrell was cast at Jerry Dandridge the vampire next door, but I’m happy to say I LOVED his portrayal. He was so wicked and without remorse. They even went with some classic monster make-up at the end. It was a fun ride!

4) Underworld – I loved the idea of an underground war fought right under our noses between he vampires and the lycans and it’s been going on so long that it’s hazy about how it all started. Lots of cool effects and Kate Beckinsale ROCKED the black leather.

3) Fright Night (Original) I loved the lost love secondary plot and Jerry Dandridge was sexy and wicked! I also enjoyed the old-school monster make-up when he shifted and when he got burned. Classic!

2) Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula – Seeing Dracula as a tortured hero, but at the same time he’s scary and dangerous, made this movie gold for me. I also really enjoyed the atmospheric filming of this one. The thick mists, the castles, it all worked together for a great gothic vampire film.

1) The Lost Boys – Keifer Sutherland is still one of my all-time vampires and you put it together with the rest of the cast and it’s amazing. I loved the concept of the Lost Boys needing a mother figure, and it’s always nice to have dangerous vampires. For me the sex appeal and the danger mixed together makes a vampire movie tough to resist.

So did I miss any of your favorites? Please share… I might need to find them!
