So many of my favorites!
I saw an amazing theater production of Let The Right One In that just floored me.
Only Lovers Left Alive soothes something in my soul. It's so beautiful.
Well there is the Carl Dreyer silent Vampire movie. I believe it is called Nosferatu.
it's called "vampyr" steve severin from siouxsie and the banshees did a soundtrack for it. it is a beautiful film. i should add that because so few people know it over nosfaratu. thanks for the recommendation.
I just saw Let The Right One In (the Swedish original) a few weeks ago, and thought it was absolutely beautiful. There's so much going on! Glad to see it's already on your list.
My new favorite vampire movie is What We Do In The Shadows. It was just about perfect.
definitely need to add Near Dark to the list. Possibly Tale of a Vampire too. I'm surprised Interview with a Vampire wasn't on here, but maybe it's too obvious.
ok, one more.....my friend Blair made this and never expected anyone to see it. It's super artsy for a vamp flick, but has great moments. I think you guys will enjoy the crazy cameos.http://www.iwannawatch.to/2015/07/jugular-wine-a-vampire-odyssey-1994/
Near Dark was great, a Vampire Western, but it got overshadowed by Lost Boys
and the Tangerine Dream soundtrack!!!
Interview with a Vampire is one of my favorite books. when the movie came out it was like watching someone burn down your childhood home while your teddy bear stared out the window at you.
I too loved it as a book and was dreading the film, but I thought they did a pretty decent job. I do not hate it.
Lifeforce. It has everything! If everything means space vampires, Patrick Stewart, and full-frontal female nudity!
I second this. Visually arresting at the very least.
Yay! I've been meaning to watch it. Now I have even more of a reason!
Ah OLLA, that movie speaks to my heart.
Can't comment on vampire movies because I watch very few movies, but I am currently enjoying a second reading of A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Despite the title, it is just as much about vampires as it is about witches. Great trilogy.
I do have two other favorite vampire books, though. Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin. It's a historical novel, set in the days of paddles boats on the Mississippi River, but the main character is a vampire. My other favorite is also, as far as I'm concerned, the scariest book ever. It is Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons and is about mind vampires. Read them both someday. I think you'll like them.
Creepshow is worth a watch.
My favorite vampire movies are Near Dark (which I am really surprised is not on your list) and George Romero's Martin (which very few people like, but I LOVE it).
I love Let the Right One In. Also, last year, there was an excellent adaptation of the film for the stage - one of the few instances where both film and stage adaptation are brilliant and fantastic in their own way. If you get a chance to check it out - not sure if they ever videoed it - but yeah, if you get a chance, do :)
Thank you for including Nadja! Almost know one knows that film (at least when I bring it up, no one does) and it's weirdly perfect for a vampire film.
Also, I had no idea you loved The Lost Boys.
I definitely suggest Sundown. It has David Carradine, Bruce Campbell, and the guy who played Rex Manning on Empire Records in it. It's a vampire Western about vampires creating fake blood to eat so they don't have to drink from people any more, versus the evil vampires who very much love hunting people. It was pretty great.
Check out the British 6 part mini-series Ultraviolet.
Definitely seconding Ultraviolet. And Near Dark.
Vampire Princess Miyu. Anime, she's a demon hunter. Complex and very Japanese, also, lovely. Seek the OVA version rather than the TV series.
