In this modern age in which many are exposed solely to Twilight's bastardization of a vampire, I think we could benefit in exploring some of the movies that made the genre interesting way back when (and even today).
So what are some of the great vampire movies of all time?
30 Days of Night
The Lost Boys
From Dusk 'Til Dawn
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Interview with a Vampire
I have no response whatsoever. I just love the name of this forum. Vampires that don't suck. Priceless
Bram Stoker's Dracula with Gary Oldman. I'm a purist.

No one mentioned Underworld. I thought that one was great. Is there something wrong with me?
Definately Interview with the Vampire as number one! I don't think it can be knocked off its perch.
What is it about the movie that is sooo good though people? Does it give Anne Rice justice?
I think so. Whats not to love?
Interview with a Vampire still is number one with me. Too hot for words.
Oddly enough, my initial exposure to the Count Orlok character was through a children's television series called 'Are You Afraid of the Dark?' If you grew up in the 90's, you probably know what I am talking about. Anyway, the image of the character stuck with me forever - its such an icon for cinematic terror. I'm glad it hasn't been forgotten.
Haha, I feel like I was just writing about this...
3. From Dusk Till Dawn
4. The Lost Boys
5. 30 Days of Night
6. Let the Right One In
7. Queen of the Damned
Interview with the Vampire is my number one...that's how I perceive my vampires. x) I also like Nosferatu and Bramstoker's Dracula.
Let the Right One In
The Lost Boys
Nosferatu (one of like TWO silent films I've ever enjoyed)
From Dusk Till Dawn
^^^Those are all my FAVORITES
30 Days of Night was ok, not great
Underworld was ok, not great
John Carpenter's Vampires was VERY GOOD, not GREAT...
One that hasn't been mentioned (although I haven't seen it I heard it was AMAZING) is Thirst. it's a korean film from 2009...I have the DVD at home, just havent had 2 and a half hours to watch it...
Jelly, Thank you for mentioning Thirst. The buzz surrounding t is well deserved - its almost definitely in my top 10 of 2009 (and it makes Let The Right One In, which I really liked, look incredibly tame). You will almost definitely appreciate it.
Daybreakers is a waste. BLECH!
Could have been quite good but just way too much gore and senseless weirdness.
So, no, Daybreakers is not an all-time good recommendation.
"Gore" and "senseless weirdness" actually sounds quite intriguing to me. Still I'm not sure whether or not I want to pay the price of admission to see this. Reviews are generally pretty mixed, which doesn't make the decision any easier. What did you think of the story, Daniel?
Bram Stoker's Dracula...of course, it has sentimental value too
I also have to second (fourth? Fifth?) The Lost Boys
Did you get to see the original Warner bros/7 Arts production "Dracula" released in the 50s. Christopher Lee made your blood curl and you would not have slept with lights off that night! It is amazing how they made a movie like that in those primitive years!
the underworld series;
Interview with the vampire;
Bram Stoker's Dracula;
and I wish there was a movie made on "The tale of the body thief"
House of Dark Shadows--based on the '60s television show.
Also liked From Dusk Till Dawn and Lost Boys...
The best ever Vampire film is Dracula: Dead and Loving it!
R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen
Lost Boys - Ye Olde Awesome Moviecus Vampirist
I agree with others who say "From Dusk Til Dawn" and "Lost Boys." I personally thought "Fright Night" was overrated, but know many who love it.
I am surprised no one has mentioned "Near Dark." I recommend it if you have not seen it. It is not the greatest vampire film of all time, but a very good film.
ha ha ha... vampire movies that don't suck! Classic.
From Dusk Til Dawn
... All excellent.
Fright Night was the first vampire movie that came to mind, though. It's not as great now as it was when I first saw it (at least a million times back in the day), but as far as vampire movies go, it's a classic.
i like cirqu du frak
interview with a vampire
30 days of night
the lost boys
anything that brings out the vicious side of vampires. modern vampires are too careful and too beautiful.... what happened to the angry side oof them?
I would agree that interview with a vampire was a good movie. I also liked Bram stokers Dracula. But, interview with a vampire was better, and told the story of a vampires almost never ending life.
I was actually kind of sad when the little girl turned to dust. But, was not at all sad about what happened to the vampire played by Tom Cruise. (His best acting in a movie ever) Brad Pitt too.
It's Funny, I just finished watching Dracula dead and Loving it. It's not the best movie, but it still makes me laugh. The scenes with Renfield were the best part of the movie. Especially the scene where he is eating the bugs while trying to prove to Harvey Korman that he is sane. Or, when Leslie Neilson jumps out the window with Mina, and he calls after him!
Master! Master!...I mean uh...Mister! Mister!
What about Blood: The Last Vampire?
Both the Anime and Live Action were good!

Your 5 favourite vampire movies

I know young girls are in love with the Twilight Saga. I never got into the movies because I wasn't a fan of Bella, and I didn't care for the mushy love story. Now, I LOVE the Underworld Series! In my mind, vampires are not supposed to be sparkly and sweet, but morbid and kinda gross. Plus, I love...

Okay, with the whole franchise reaching it's end soon in 2012, I want to know your thoughts on this franchise? Explain the phenomenon that is Twilight to me, and tell me exactly why you think it'll either go down in cinematic history as one of the greatest love stories told....OR..you can...
