I was fretting if I should have added BLOOD FOR DRACULA and DRACULA'S DAUGHTER. I wanted to add MALENKA aka FANGS OF THE LIVING DEAD too!

One havent seen...and NEED to-that Claws mentioned- is DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS(1971)! Just haven't had the chance...I've heard good things about it!

Yeah, I recommend DAUGHTERS OF DARKNESS.  It's a little weird and arty though.   Wink  I need to see VAMPYR and the Jean Rollins movies (RAPE OF THE VAMPIRE, etc.).

I'm not really into weird and arty films...but for vampire films...it seems to work. The world of the vampire seems weird.BLOOD AND ROSES is weird and arty...but I loved it.

VAMPYR (1932) is one of the strangest films I've ever seen. I'ts like watching a nightmare-the kind where you walk in a haze and just float around. Very surreal.
It's said that Dreyer saw the Lugosi version of DRACULA and said-"I could make a picture like that." Not like Dracula at all. MUCH stranger!

As far as Jean Rollin goes-I havn't seen any of his work! I really should!

The vampires victum turns...from VAMPYRE (1932)

While I haven't seen 20 vampire films yet I am very happy to see Bela represented.  Cheers Cheers Cheers

As for the vampire films I have seen: All the Blade fimsl and Dracula Dead and Loving It I liked. The only one I've seenand hate is Jennifer's Body. I'm not sure if Bela's character from Plan 9 From Outer Space counts, as his charcater is an un dead vampire. If it does that's the best vampire films I've seen.

Bob-though Bela wore the Dracula costume (it was actually an outake for an unmade Wood film-Bela was dead by the time PLAN 9 was made) the undead in PLAN 9 were actually  zombies. Bela also wore the Dracula cape in SPOOKS RUN WILD and OLD MOTHER RILEY MEETS THE VAMPIRE...and wasn't an actual  vampire in those films either. Low budget film makers were exploiting his Dracula image. He was broke. He did it. A man has to eat.
He WAS a vampire-and very Draculean,in RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE.
He appeared as a Dracula type charecter in MARK OF THE VAMPIRE(1935)...but alas...well..if you haven't seen the film,I won't spoil it. It IS a great performance...and a vampire film.

Demon Under Glass (An obscure movie, but a great one)




Good call. Another great obscure Vampire movie is The Girl with the Hungry Eyes:



and The Addiction (1995). Nadja (1994) on the other hand was very "rofl" (bad).
