Top 10 Vampire Movies
Ok, so this really should be called "9 movies and a TV series" but who's counting? These are just a handful of favorites.
10. Nosferatu - 1922
There are some things in life that truly creep you out. This is one of them for me. The long fingers and the pointy teeth....muwblah! Creeps me out to no end! I did sit down and watch this ontce so I could say I had actually seen it. It's a great movie, why it made the list, but it's the stuff of nightmares for this vixen.
09. The Last Man On Earth - 1964
The first movie version of the novel "I am Legend" staring Vincent Price. Later film versions of the book include "The Omega Man" 1971 with Charlton Heston and "I am Legend" 2007 with Will Smith. It's a bleak and lonely look at a man who has survived a plague and is left to fight the infected. And hey, Vincent Price, how could you go wrong?
It's a fresh take on the usual story line. Vampire coming out of the coffin and trying to mainstream with the humans. It's adult and that's a welcome change. There is blood, there is colorful language and oh my yes, there is sex! But I like that the boys are naked much more than the girls. It's about time! And it is always a captivating story line each season. And yes, Sam is the favorite TB boy here at The Lounge. Though there are many Vampire/Were boys to hold your attention. The only downside, waiting the nine months in between each season.
01. Dracula - 1931
Number one had to be the original classic. Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula is so iconic. The movie is filmed beautifully with a great eerie atmosphere. I really love the old black and white monster movies and this is one of the greats.
I mean really, Bella Lugosi standing at the top of the long stair case delivering the line "The children of the night, what music they make", does it get much better than that?
