Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
A vampire tells his epic life story: love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger. (123 mins.)
Director: Neil Jordan
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
2.
Twilight (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire. (122 mins.)
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
3.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.6/10 X  
Edward leaves Bella after an attack that nearly claimed her life, and in her depression she falls into yet another paranormal relationship - this time with werewolf Jacob Black. (130 mins.)
Director: Chris Weitz
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
4.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob. (124 mins.)
Director: David Slade
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
5.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
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. (117 mins.)
Director: Bill Condon
“ 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" ” - StKitten

Vampires (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
A vengeful vampire slayer must retrieve an ancient Catholic relic that, should it be acquired by vampires, will allow them to endure sunlight. (108 mins.)
Director: John Carpenter
“ 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... ” - StKitten
 
7.
Queen of the Damned (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
The vampire Lestat becomes a rock star whose music wakes up the queen of all vampires. (101 mins.)
Director: Michael Rymer
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
8.
Fright Night (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A teenager suspects that his new neighbor is a vampire. (106 mins.)
Director: Craig Gillespie
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
9.
Vampires: Los Muertos (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.6/10 X  
A vampire hunter and a priest fight a band of the walking dead in Mexico. (93 mins.)
“ This sequel is ridiculous! It's boring, predictable and completely ruins the concept of the first film. Two thumbs down. ” - StKitten
 
10.
Blade (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A half-vampire, half-mortal man becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires. (120 mins.)
“ I saw this one years ago the first time. Back then I thought it was great. Now I think it's really pretty bad. It hasn't held up well, and looks cheap from start to finish. ” - StKitten
 
11.
The Lost Boys (1987)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
After moving to a new town, two brothers discover that the area is a haven for vampires. (97 mins.)
Director: Joel Schumacher
 
12.

Director: P.J. Pesce
 
13.
Priest (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A priest disobeys church law to track down the vampires who kidnapped his niece. (87 mins.)
Director: Scott Stewart
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
14.
Ultraviolet (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.4/10 X  
A beautiful hemophage infected with a virus that gives her superhuman powers has to protect a boy in a futuristic world, who is thought to be carrying antigens that would destroy all hemophages. (88 mins.)
Director: Kurt Wimmer
“ I had high hopes for this one as I am a big fan of Mila Jovovich. Although it's been years since I saw it and also a while since I compiled this list, I remember being really dissapointed. ” - StKitten
 
15.
30 Days of Night (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
After an Alaskan town is plunged into darkness for a month, it is attacked by a bloodthirsty gang of vampires. (113 mins.)
Director: David Slade
“ 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! ” - StKitten
 
16.
Let the Right One In (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Oskar, an overlooked and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl. (115 mins.)
Director: Tomas Alfredson
“ Worst piece of crap I've ever seen within this genre! And swedish no less...! ” - StKitten
 
17.
Underworld (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
Selene, a beautiful warrior, is entrenched in a war between the vampire and werewolf races. Although she is aligned with the vampires, she falls in love with Michael, a human who is sought by werewolves for unknown reasons. (121 mins.)
Director: Len Wiseman
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
18.
Underworld: Evolution (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Picking up directly from the previous film, vampire warrior Selene and the half werewolf Michael hunt for clues to reveal the history of their races and the war between them. (106 mins.)
Director: Len Wiseman
“ This one is kind of superfluous, just more eye candy, but it's still a good one to watch. As beautifully filmed as the first one and the music is just as killer also. ” - StKitten
 
19.
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
An origins story centered on the centuries-old feud between the race of aristocratic vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans. (92 mins.)
“ 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). ” - StKitten
 
20.
Van Helsing (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
The notorious monster hunter is sent to Transylvania to stop Count Dracula who is using Dr. Frankenstein's research and a werewolf for some sinister purpose. (131 mins.)
Director: Stephen Sommers
“ This one is a favourite. I've always liked this one, though in part as a bit of a guilty pleasure, because let's admit it: it's pretty damn hokey here and there. Still, well acted, well filmed and utterly enjoyable. ” - StKitten
 
21.
From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in an establishment populated by vampires, with chaotic results. (108 mins.)
“ 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! ” - StKitten
 
22.
From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money (1999 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.0/10 X  
More people are turned into vampires as they go around spreading their evil satanic hate. (88 mins.)
Director: Scott Spiegel
“ After loving the first one I wanted to see the sequals. Not worth the time... From what I remember they were really underwhelming. ” - StKitten
 
23.
From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter (1999 Video)

“ See above comment. ” - StKitten
 
24.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A flighty teenage girl learns that she is her generation's destined battler of vampires. (86 mins.)
“ I had followed the TV Series for a few seasons before I realized that it was based on a movie. I watched this as soon as I could get my hands on it, but sadly found the show to be the better version... It's still a funny movie but I'm not inclined to revisit this one all that often. ” - StKitten
 
25.
Vampires Suck (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.5/10 X  
A spoof of vampire-themed movies, where teenager Becca finds herself torn between two boys. As she and her friends wrestle with a number of different dramas, everything comes to a head at their prom. (82 mins.)
“ This one I watched purely to see Twilight parodied. It was what I expected. ” - StKitten
 
26.
Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Mel Brooks' parody of the classic vampire story and its famous film adaptations. (88 mins.)
Director: Mel Brooks
“ This one is hilarious! A wonderful spoof of Bram Stoker's Dracula by Coppola. ” - StKitten
 
27.
The Breed (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
In the distant future vampires have come out of the shadows and tried to live among people as a special and peaceful breed... (91 mins.)
“ Saw this one ages ago and have no strong recollection of it. Not good enough to leave an impression = two thumbs down. ” - StKitten
 
28.
Dracula 2000 (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
A group of thieves break into a chamber expecting to find paintings, but instead they release the count himself, who travels to New Orleans to find his nemesis' daughter, Mary Van Helsing. (99 mins.)
Director: Patrick Lussier
“ 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 :) ” - StKitten
 
29.
Dracula (1992)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
The vampire comes to England to seduce a visitor's fiancée and inflict havoc in the foreign land. (128 mins.)
“ This is one of the first Vamp movies I ever saw in my youth and I loved it then. Now I think it's so-so. It's still a classic amongst Dracula interpretations but I can't stop getting annoyed by the horrendous English accents delivered by both Ryder and Reeves. Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins are what save this movie from being really tacky. ” - StKitten
 
30.
Dracula II: Ascension (2003 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
Horror following a group of medical students who come across the body of the world's most notorious vampire... (85 mins.)
Director: Patrick Lussier
“ This sequel wasn't really needed. And a pet peeve of mine is when they change actors for a certain character and do nothing to make them at least look similar to the original. *sigh* ” - StKitten
 
31.
Nosferatu (1922)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Vampire Count Orlok expresses interest in a new residence and real estate agent Hutter's wife. (94 mins.)
Director: F.W. Murnau
“ I know this is considered the "be all and end all" of vamp flicks, but I have to say that I struggled to get though it! It's quite beautiful but silent movies aren't my thing at all (or older movies in general for that matter) and I doubt I will ever revisit it... ” - StKitten
 
32.
Perfect Creature (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
The vampire myth is given a stylish 1960s treatment, where a human cop partners with a vampire cop to stop a vamp bent on creating a war between the two "separate but equal" races. (90 mins.)
Director: Glenn Standring
“ This is one of those where I wish I could erase the few images left of it from my brain. Really bad... ” - StKitten
 
33.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
The Romanian count known as Dracula is summoned to London by Arthur Holmwood, a young Lord who is one the verge of being wed... (90 mins.)
Director: Bill Eagles
“ This one I hoped would be good because it was made in the UK. I was sadly quite disappointed... Drac is ugly and repulsive and Lucy is just irritating as crap! Mina I found quite boring and didn't feel that the actress did the charachter justice. ” - StKitten
 
34.
Shadow of the Vampire (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
The filming of Nosferatu is hampered by the fact that its star Max Schreck is taking the role of a vampire far more seriously than seems humanly possible. (92 mins.)
“ This one failed on all levels for me. Despite a list of amazing actors I was left feeling like I had lost 92 minutes of my life, and I'd never get them back.... ” - StKitten
 
35.
Dracula III: Legacy (2005 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X

Director: Patrick Lussier
“ This one just continued the crapiness of what was othewise a rather good original vamp movie. ” - StKitten
 
36.
Vampire in Brooklyn (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X

Director: Wes Craven
“ I saw this one for the first time in the late 90's and since then I have loved it. It had me cracking up and it's really nice to see some racial diversity in this genre. *beep* great take on the Dracula story. ” - StKitten
 
37.

Blade, now a wanted man by the FBI, must join forces with the Nightstalkers to face his most challenging enemy yet: Dracula. (113 mins.)
Director: David S. Goyer
“ 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'... ” - StKitten
 
39.

In the 18th century, a vampire escapes from the freak show she once participated in and teams up with a group of vampire slayers to kill the man who raped her mother. (95 mins.)
Director: Uwe Boll
“ 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. ” - StKitten

Detective Raymond Pope is a detective of questionable morals, searching for his missing wife. His investigation... (107 mins.)
“ 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! ” - StKitten

Director: Paul Weitz
“ 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). ” - StKitten
 
49.
Underworld: Awakening (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
When human forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrior Selene leads the battle against humankind. (88 mins.)
Director: Mårlind, Stein
“ 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. ” - StKitten
 
50.
Byzantium (2012)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Residents of a coastal town learn, with deathly consequences, the secret shared by the two mysterious women who have sought shelter at a local resort. (118 mins.)
Director: Neil Jordan
“ 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). ” - StKitten
