25 Best Vampire Movies of All Time

The best and scariest vampire movies in horror film history. From Dracula to Nosferatu, and more. The vampire films with the most bite.

After compiling a list of all the thousands of vampire movies made, we've narrowed that list down to the best, scariest, and most fun vampire movies to watch. It wasn't easy; by the end, blood was everywhere on the cutting room floor. So sink your teeth into our list of the best vampires, blood-suckers and neck biters. These are the top 25 Vampire movies in cinema history:

1 - The Lost Boys (1987) Sam (Corey Haim) and the Frog Bros take on a gang of vampires that have taken over Santa Carlo. Brilliant screenplay with a pinch of dark humor.

2 - Dracula (1931) The classic original is still the best story, atmosphere and direction.

3 - John Carpenter's Vampires (1998) No one makes horror movies like John Carpenter. His work stands above the crowd, and this film really has bite to it.

4 - Nosferatu (1922) The earliest, and still the creepiest vampire movie ever. (right photo)

5 - Fright Night (1985) The original (not the remake) is an enjoyable action/horror film. Two guys move in next door to a high school kid, who suspects it is a vampire and his guardian. The kid gets help from a horror show actor, and they take on the unholy creature of the night.

6 - Last Man on Earth (1964) post-apocalyptic movie in which a virus has turned everyone into vampires. Vincent Price is the sole human scientist trying to find a cure and fight them off simultaneously.

7 - Let the Right One In (2008) creepy Swedish vampire love story.

8 - Thirst (2009) extraordinary Korean vamp movie.

9 - Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009) Elite sophisticated vampires vs. beastly werewolves.

10 - Blade (1998)

11 - Near Dark (1987) the only good movie Kathryn Bigelow ever successfully directed.

12 - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) Pee Wee Herman is a Vampire!

13 - Van Helsing (2004)

14 - From Dusk Til Dawn (1996) Robert Rodriguez directs a compelling vampire story about 2 bank robbers who kidnap a family and take them to Mexico where they meet a hive of vampire creatures. George Clooney and Harvey Keitel star in this great piece of horror.

13 - Blood: The Last Vampire (2000) Japanese live-action film based on the anime.

14 - Bram Stroker's Dracula (1992)

15 - Shadow of the Vampire (2000) about the filming of Nosferatu.

16 - Salem's Lot (1979) based on the Stephen King novel.

17 - Night Watch (2005) and Day Watch (2007)

18 - Omega Man (1971) remake of Last Man on Earth

19 - Daybreakers (2009)

20 - 30 Days of Night (2007)

21 - Horror of Dracula (1958)

22 - Dracula (1979) Frank Langella, eerie Gothic setting.

23 - Twilight (2008) the least favorite among vampire aficionados, but this movie does have a few scenes with merit. Maybe the acting is bad, the screenplay abysmal, but a the final fight scene is worthy.

24 - Monster Squad (1987) teens band together to save their town from the Universal Monsters.

25 - Interview with the Vampire (1994) Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Christian Slater.

Are you feeling the need for a garlic necklace yet? Now you've got plenty to watch for your Halloween movie marathon, or any horror film double feature.

Werewolves and vampires will always inspire new movies to come. I just hope the vampires get out of high school before the movie starts filming.
