Lestat...but not as played by Tom Cruise
i agree. lestat was great in the novel by anne rice but not in the movie.
Agree with all who say Lestat
I don't even think the Twilight characters should count as vampires. They are just sparkly humans.
The Necroscope from the Brian Lumley book series of the same name. Highly thought provoking, and speaks to my fiery soul in more ways than I'll care to admit.
Love Brian Lumley - he's my choice for favorite vamps. Like nothing else written. Incredible books!
So hard to choose! But I have to go with Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, the series. Quickly followed up by Mick from Moonlight. Very sexy! http://hubpages.com/hub/Moonlight-CBS
They are my top two. But Angel is always first in my heart.
I actually really liked Cruise's Lestat too, though I don't care much for Cruise generally. Louis annoys me though. World's most annoying vampire.
I also really liked Gerard Butler's vampire in Dracula 2000. Delicious!
Oh, and Mark Frankel as Julian Luna from Kindred the Embraced. And oh geesh, how can I forget Eric on True Blood.
I really like vampires.
I think this post has inspired my choice of next hub
The Lost Boys is without a doubt the best Vampire Movie, the music, the actors, the dark humor, yep tis deff my next hub
Ps - Cheers Davina
Now, I am in the mood to watch the movie again.
I am writing a Hub on the Movie as I am going to watch the Movie tonight and write it tomorrow. Twil be one of my best as I love this Movie with a passion. I of course got the idea from you so twil be written for you. I write better that way !
So I can put "muse" on my resume! I am honored and I hope to be the first to read your masterpiece.
That movie scared the crap outta me. But I was like 10 when I saw it.
It is so funny that you would say that, because my mother had to physically drag me into the theater. I wanted to see it, but once we got there, I got scared and changed my mind. My mom tried to tell me I would like it, but I started crying. We couldn't go home, because there were about 5 kids with us that came to see it. So I closed my eyes and she escorted me into the theater. I was glad in the end though, 'cause it rocked.
Eddie Murphy, "Vampire in Brooklyn"
Kinda like a dark Red Wine, something to get yer teeth into
Yeah I saw it on tape. At home, in the dark. Definitely a great movie. But I was 10, and got a little scared I think maybe my aunt rented it and I told her I was allowed to watch it. I also got grounded in 5th grade for watching Scream without permission.
The Lost Boys to me was just okay. I think all it had going for it was a good director Joel Schumacher who took advantage of the eighties mentality of coolness and transferred it to a modern-day vampire tale. It worked for him, though. As it seems that all contemporary vampire movies seemed to copy off from the movie. However, I think overall, the movie is at best average, as a horror film. You see, the horror genre is my favorite genre of movies, closely followed by Mobster movies. So I like to see a horror movie done with some class. Schumacher definitely does some good Cinematography, but The Lost Boys wasn't his best work. The greatest vampire flick of all time will always remain Dracula. The one directed by the greatest director of all time - Francis Ford Copolla. Anyone wanna argue this out with me, bring it.
I still think The Lost Boys rocked. I won't argue with your expertise, but I still think the Boys are righteous.
Entertaining? Yes, but calling it the best vampire flick of all time is a pretty long stretch.
The Lost Boys is without doubt one of the best Movies ever made and deff in my top 5 all time Movies. It's not just the Vampire thing, it's the music, the darkness, the good over evil, that whole Vampire thing. Twil be one good hub for sure, glad you mentioned it Davina, am actually watching it now and part writing.
Well if you read my Peggy Sue hub you would know I worship Copolla !
The question was "who is your favorite vampire". And some think the Lost Boys is the best vampire movie. I have to say I haven't seen the others. Without sounding "killer-from-Scream-esque" what is your favorite scary movie cj?
I mentioned Dracula and I'll tell you why? First of all, the greatest vampire story ever told is of the novel, written by Bram Stoker. A lot of people attempted to adapt this into a movie, some did well, others flopped. But it took the expert-hand of Francis Ford Copolla to finally convey the true essence of the raw evil, which the Count epitomizes. In the movie, you Keanu Reeves and Anthony Hopkins at their best. You see classic Copolla visual creativity Godfather-style. In short, you feel the movie in a subtle, yet real way. After Dracula, my next favorite scary movie has got to be Evil Dead. Sam Raimi, the director is the reason why I wanna go be a director. (might wanna check out my hub on Raimi) Evil Dead was brilliant, mostly because unlike most scary movies, you never actually get to see any monster in it. Just the effects of an unseen evil, as it possesses people. This to me, is the true essence of evil. Unseen, yet potent. Another horror flick I like is the Hellraiser series. Yes, full of demons and creatures. But I loved it because it came from the demented mind of the one and only Clive Barker. You can only travel so far within the depths of imagination. The rest, you have to know it.
Not in any order......
Angel (BTVS and Angel)
Spike (BTVS and Angel)
David (The Lost Boys)
Jesse Hooker (Near Dark)
Severen (Near Dark)
Max Schreck (Shadow of the Vampire)
Julian Luna (Kindred the Embraced)
Bill Compton (True Blood)
Eric Northman (True Blood)
Keanu Reeves at his best? I think that he is just awful in this movie, hugely miscast. I would watch this movie more often if he didn't make me cringe so much and I love Keanu Reeves and own practically all of his movies. But this movie, along with the Shakespeare flick he did, are just beyond his acting abilities and it shows.
I am with you on Clive Barker. Hellraiser is a great movie.
First of all, Copolla has never ever messed up a cast. Reeves was as real as he has ever been. His character was plain, dreamy, and weak. This he conveyed effortlessly in the movie. Not to brag or belittle you, but we directors notice these things more than average folk.
The audience isn't full of directors. It's full of average folk. I think Keanu Reeves was miscast. You can claim he isn't based on your inside insight if you like, but your opinion doesn't hold more weight. There are plenty of crappy directors in Hollywood. I'm sure they all think their opinion on movies is more special too
I didn't like Hellraiser. I'll have to check out the other 2. While I've seen lots of horror movies my favorite movies aren't in this category. So I was just lookin out for some suggestions. I don't have the professional eye like you do cj. The plot and content of the story and its characters is always what gets me.
The plot, story and characters of Hellraiser is ingenuity at is best. Imagine a gamecube that once solved is the doorway to hell. What's more brilliant than that!
Don't be. I have a different taste in movies. I'll check out the other two though. I've never had luck finding "good" scary movies.
I remember watching the original "Last House on the Left" when I was a kid, and it scared the bejesus out of me. I watched it again, recently, and it was just kind of weird.
It was bad, I mean when I saw it loads walked out. Its one of the worst rape movies I have watched !
I saw a documentary of the making of the movie, and John Carpenter said that he hadn't seen it in years and couldn't watch it again.
My character Alexander from a story im writing ^^ hes pretty amazing.
I cut my vampiric teeth on Buffy, so Spike and Angelus (I find Angel boring, sorry!) are probably always going to be my favorites for nostalgic reasons alone.
Recently I've really enjoyed Eric Northman, Pam, and Jessica in True Blood, and Henry Fitzroy in Blood Ties.
Got to agree with you there! got to LOVE Spike! Angel in his own series was much better than in the Buffy series but still Spike has him beat!
About three things I was absolutely positive:
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
seriously, I'm hunting for one...to bite me and make me immortal
Favourite vampire? Does not compute....
Vampires are just retired, frustrated teachers. Sticklers for grammar and good diction.
Not very romantic really.
Definitely, it's Tom Cruise's Lestat in Interview with the Vampire.. He did a much better job than I expected. Also I really like Armand by Antonio Bandarras. I liked Anne Rce's books and read many of them.
Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire (OMG, he was sexy)
Edward Cullen of Twilight (call me a cougar, yes, I am!)
Eric N*** (something) from True Blood (he can bite me anytime
That's my order and I am obsessed with vampires like the rest of the world.
Kate Beckinsale's character Selene in Underworld....she was amazingly hot...so cool as far as her demeanor and kicked ass...not much else you can ask for.
The very, very original Dracula - from the black and white movies. Mainly because I find him very very funny.
Modern day would be Kate Beckinsale in Underworld... Grrr.
Wow this forum has exceeded my expectation. Bela Lugosi is wonderful...I saw a movie about him once, however, I have forgotten the title.
That "Count Dracula" guy from Sesame Street (Was 'Count' really his name?)
You gotta love his laugh: "10 Crocodiles, Ah ha ha ha!"
Okay, just looked it up: His name was Count von Count and was modeled after Bella Lugosi's depiction of Count Dracula. Thanks, Wikipedia!
LOL!!! That is a great one.
Earlier I wrongly stated Barnaby of Dark Shadows. His name was actually Barnabus Collins I believe, anyway I just read that Johnnie Depp is going to play him in a movie and that he was one of his favorite Vampires as a kid. Cool.
My all time favorite vampire would have to be the one on Dark Shadows. Not the older version, the remake of the series. It was in the 1980s, maybe around 1989?
Lestat de leoncourt of course!!! The book versions of him are so funny he loves to kill and shop. haha He also carries a man bag so whats not super funny about that. I do not care much for twilight they sparkle and thats strange I did like the movie, but the way they did it you forget they are vampires very easily.
Omg all vampires are sexy. Check this little guy out I would marry him in a second ROFL
... he is cute! But of course you'd have any male species rapped around your finger.. lol
I'm surprised Blade did not make it in here. Although, Barnabus Collins from Collinsworth in Dark Shadows started me down the road of a doomed love affair with the vampire. I would have to say that my favorite is indeed Bram Stoker's Dracula i.e. Vlad the Impaler. The Hollywood versions have nothing on the true literary ones.
Lestat and Claudia.
I feel like a school girl with her sick fantasies of a teacher or something when I watch IWAV...except it would be me doing an undead, fanged man.
He was too whiny, and weak in the book...I love him in the film.
Spike from Buffy and Angel (my blondie bear)
I can't choose betwixt Spike or Angel...i love both the shows so much and have started collecting the comics where the shows continue.

What is Your favourite Vampire Movie?Do you have a Vampire? TV or Movies?

I have played a lot of PC RPG games over the years and liked a number of them for different reasons. My guess is that other people feel the same and I am curious about what makes a good game from other peoples point of view. For instance I played and enjoyed Warcraft, but many people don't agree it...
