We had a favorite Frankenstein film thead...howsabout Vampire movies? Here are some of mine....
1.DRACULA (1931) Yeah...I know it's stagey and has not aged well...but Karl Fruends photography in the Castle Dracula sequences and Lugosi as Dracula makes it number one for me!
2.NOSFERATU (1922) A classic! Max Shreck is the most vile,diseased looking vampire ever! I noticted the vampire in SALEMS LOT owes much to Graf Orlak...as well as the vampire girl in BLOOD OF DRACULA!
3.TASTE the BLOOD of DRACULA-My favorite Hammer Drac was SCARS of DRACULA....but this one got bumped!
4.VAMPYRE (1932) Creepy. Like a filmed nightmare.
5.FANGS of the LIVING DEAD (1969) aka MALENKA. I just like big breasted vampire women!
6.the FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS -Funny,smart,pretty girls,crazy vampires...and a very ugly hunchback!
7.NEAR DARK-Dam cool rural vampire movie. Even got the Cramps on he soundtrack!
8.HORROR of DRACULA-Lee has played Dracula on film more than anyone! (even if some of the movies were quite lame-ie-SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA and DRACULA AD 1972). For me not to have this clasic on the list would be blashphomas.(Did I spell that right?
9.MARK OF THE VAMPIRE-Yeah,I know....the end is a cheat...but technically this is a vampire movie. Luna and Count Mora are iconic images. Luna (Carol Borland) set the standered for vampire girls-like Vampira,Lily Munster,and Elvira!
10.MARTIN-Sick George Romero vampire film. Scary and intelligent
Dont ya think? It's Nosferatu's daughter!
