Movies that don't suck... or do they?
When it comes to monster movies, sometimes you just want to get your dollar back from Redbox. However, not all monster movies are terribly terrible. some are downright entertaining. The recent resurgence of the vampire trend has brought us some pretty awesome movies.
Gone are the spooky silent movies of Bela Lugosi and Max Shreck, but no vampire movie list would be complete without DRACULA and NOSFERATU.
In more modern times, the vampire has captured audiences attention with movies like INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED, BLADE, and THE LOST BOYS. These undead immortals fascinate audiences like never before now. Who doesnt like a good slugfest edge of your seat thriller now and then?
Of course, Hollywood has those other kinds of vampire movies too. The kind that tend to make you laugh out your popcorn. Movies that are so campy, so tongue in cheek, you just have to laugh at their gall.
Joss Whedon mastered the vampire parody with his cult classic BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. A flick that spawned the most successful and beloved monster television show since THE MUNSTERS.
Other great vampire flicks of the day include UNDERWORLD, DAYBREAKERS, and VAN HELSING.
But these are just a few of the undead adventures awaiting the vampire fans out there. With all the new books they are inspiring, we will probably see a lot more vampires stepping into the spotlight soon, but not into the sunlight of course.
