A vampire tells his epic life story: love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger.

Director: Neil Jordan | Stars: Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas, Kirsten Dunst

Votes: 258,384 | Gross: $105.26M

This is my ALL TIME FAVOURITE vampire movie. It's beautifully filmed, the acting is phenomenal and the story is heart-wrenchingly poignant. With this movie as my absolute fave it's hard to find other movies in the genre that live up to it, but I keep on searching, and have found some that, in their own way, are just as good as this.

A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire.

Director: Catherine Hardwicke | Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, Sarah Clarke

Votes: 370,535 | Gross: $191.47M

I had read the book about 6 months prior to wathing this, and thank God for that! I wouldn't have liked the movie otherwise... I freely admit that I like this movie, and the whole Twiligt series of films (emphasis on FILMS because the overall story and books are absolute tripe). The teen angst, lovey dovey story is a bit too much for me though. The main reasons I like this are: 1. the cinematography, I love how the movie is shot, it's eye candy all on its own. 2. The music is amazing.

After seeing this one my reasons for liking the films changed a bit. Although my feelings are largely the same as in my review of Twilight, I liked the love triangle that developed and hated that Edward came back at the end and Bella chose him instead. I am securely on Team Jacob.

I felt that the storyline got worse in this one. I got really sick of Bella's indecision really fast and was cheering when she asked Jacob to kiss her towards the end. I also didn't like that they got another actress to play Victoria as I felt the original actress did a better job.

The Quileutes close in on expecting parents Edward and Bella, whose unborn child poses a threat to the Wolf Pack and the towns people of Forks.

Director: Bill Condon | Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Gil Birmingham

Votes: 195,440 | Gross: $281.29M

This one left me a bit shell shocked... I didn't particularly like it and felt that the "rowdy-breaking-the-bed-honeymoon-sex" is mostly in there to justify the fact that they just got married. It was akward to watch and I felt like it gives a really negative view of sex to the younger veiwers who watch these films. The way they made Bella waste away was gruesome but very impactful and the birth scene was the most interesting part of the movie: Finally some action and gore!

I had actually asked a co-worker (who had read all the books) prior to seeing this movie what happened. I feel that I no longer care about the plot or storyline but, as is my way, since I've seen one I have to see them all. One important point remains though: Sparkly Vampires!?!?!?!? WTF? "That s**t is not acceptable"

Director: John Carpenter | Stars: James Woods, Daniel Baldwin, Sheryl Lee, Thomas Ian Griffith

Votes: 45,996 | Gross: $20.24M

This movie is a bit tacky and a bit B but it still delivers a lot of laughs and isn't too bad, all things considered. I like how the main vampire character is a bit mysterious and aloof. Too much talking from a vampire can ruin the charachter immensely. It's watchable and funny. However I still find James Woods a bit flinch-worthy as the tough, "sexy" vampire hunter...

The vampire Lestat becomes a rock star whose music wakes up the queen of all vampires.

Director: Michael Rymer | Stars: Aaliyah, Stuart Townsend, Marguerite Moreau, Vincent Perez

Votes: 46,892 | Gross: $30.34M

This movie is one I return to again and again, simply because it's based on the works of Anne Rice (who is a fave author of mine). Sadly it's DOA due to the fact that they perverted her wonderful stories up down and sideways. I spent most of the movie screaming at my TV when I saw this the first time. I couldn't believe how much they screwed it up. However when you realize that two books were condensed to one movie you understand why they botched it. If you are a fan of Anne Rice, one tip is to get a hold of the DVD and watch it with the director's commentary. This will at least explain why the characters have been changed, why they look the way they do, all the annoying changes are explained... It's still unforgiveable but at least I was more satisfied after hearing the rather logical reasons for changing so much of the story.

Director: Craig Gillespie | Stars: Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, David Tennant, Toni Collette

Votes: 90,379 | Gross: $18.30M

I saw this movie without having watched the original from 1985, so I had no idea what I was in for. When I saw that Collin Farrell was going to play a vampire I was intrigued. However, I didn't really buy him as a vampire, nor did I buy the character.... it was a rather underwhelming film that left me feeling a bit annoyed. This movies saving grace was cool special effects and beautiful cinematography.

Votes: 103,221 | Gross: $29.14M

This movie had me revved up like a twihard at a premiere. I thought it was going to be great! Sadly I was disappointed from start to finish. It was my own fault for not realising that it was based on a manga graphic novel, but I still thought it could have been much better. This movie didn't know if it was supposed to be a western, zombie, futuristic, post-apocalyptic or vampire flick. The mishmash of impressions and styles left me laughing to keep from crying.... I would have to say that this ones only worth watching if you're familiar with the original material.

Director: David Slade | Stars: Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, Danny Huston, Ben Foster

Votes: 148,557 | Gross: $39.57M

This one I initially watched beacuse of two factors: 1. I was interested to see how Josh Hartnett would do in a vampire movie. 2. I live in Sweden and we have similar conditions in the north here during the winter. I thought the premise for the film was fun. I myself have also been saying for about a decade that vampires would love living here during the winter, due to how long the nights are for about half the year. I was sorely disappointed when I saw this movie though. The vampires were repulsive and made no sense and the timeframe of the movie just made my head hurt!

*I also have to note that an almost identical swedish vampire movie was released a few years before this one called Frostbiten (Frostbitten in english). That film was also a major let down and proved the point (along with Let the right one in, years later) that Swedes SHOULDN'T make vamp movies!

This would have to be one of my top 5 fave Vamp films. (This list is in no particular order.) I love the game feel of it and the cinematography is beautiful! There is an original and thought out backstory and mythology to it that I appreciate.

I was really disappointed when I heard about this one and then found out it was a prequal without most of the main characters from Underworld. I was rather "meh" about Lucian in the first one and though Michael Sheen acts well I was distracted through the entire film by how hot he was (didn't think he could do that raw sexual masculinity thing).

Votes: 241,116 | Gross: $25.75M

I caught this for the first time on TV years ago and being a Tarantino fan I of course wanted to see it. As those of you who have seen it know it starts off ordinary enough: two thugs trying to escape the law by fleeing to Mexico. But imagine my surprise when about half way through all hell breaks loose and the film does a vamp-180. I didn't now what to make of it and still don't, really. It's not a good movie, per se, but it has blood, gore and enough cursing to make a sailor blush. The actors are phenomenal and at the end of the day it's Tarantino/Rodriguez at it's best, with Vampires! It's weird but I love it!

This one appeals to my love of New Orleans, and I think that any vamp movie does right in being set there! It's a bit B here and there, but overall it's funny and action filled. Gerard Butler does a damn good job of playing a slightly different kind of Dracula (this was the first film I ever saw him in, and have since become a huge fan of his) but I was initially quite annoyed at the changes made to Drac's history... Nowadays, though, when I revisit this one i just sit back and enjoy :)

This is my favorite of the trilogy. The vamp hunters were great and Ryan Reynolds' comic relief paired with both Jessica Beals and Wesley Snipes had me wetting myself by the end! I didn't like the ubervamp backstory or the actor who played him and apart from the comedy in this I find it a bit 'meh'...

This US remake of the Swedish original is still a bit slow in my opinion, but SOOOOOO much better than it's predecessor!!

I was looking forward to this one. I always enjoy vamp movies with a female vamp lead, but it was painful to watch... I barely paid attention and can therefore draw the conclusion: two thumbs down.

What can i say? It was weird, the acting was bad and the story worse. And above all it was too pronographic to be tasteful. I watched this one with a friend back in 04 and we were both rather speechless afterwards. I definitely do not recommend this one!

This one was cool, but the end left me confused. Until I dutifully checked imdb and found out about it's "based on book" status. That explaned a lot, but it has sadly fallen into the realm of films that are based on a series of books, and the when the first one doesn't bring in the big buck the rest don't get made. Shame, because I would have liked to see where the story was going (and no I don't want to read the books).

It took me a while to get around to watching this one. I started it back when it first came out but only got about 10 mins into it before tiring... 2 years later I finally saw the whole thing and I was pretty disappointed. Selene turned into a psychotic killer with no regard to human life, very OOC. The story was lackluster as was the execution.

This one blew me away! It's become one of my absolute favourite vampire movies of the new century. It was haunting and impactful. The acting was all around amazing. I don't usually like when the MO and origins of vampires is changed or over-complicated, but this one sucked me in with it's simplicity and style. In my experience it's very easy to make vampires corny and cringe-worthy, often it's done wrong. This movie is an example of it being done right!

As I said in my review of IWTV, I've had a hard time finding a vamp film that I like as much as that one. Byzantium is it! Partly this is because both films have the the same director. Regardless, this film is now in second place as my all time fave vamp film (followed in third by the Underworld franchise).
