Halloween Guide and Ideas


Without a doubt, there are more vampire movies than any other in the horror genre, literally hundreds of films have been produced over the years. Below are our thirteen favorite vampire movies you can really sink your teeth into during the Halloween season.

Fright Night
Meet Jerry Dandridge. He's sweet, sexy, and he likes to sleep in late. You might think he's the perfect neighbor. But before inviting Jerry in for a nightcap, there's just one thing you should know. Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red and straight from the jugular! Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster knows Jerry's bloodcurdling secret. When Charley can't get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent, who used to be the "Great Vampire Killer" of the movies. Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy from the wrathful bloodsucker's toothy embrace? If you love being scared, Fright Night...will give you the nightmare of your life. 1985

Fright Night II
Three years after killing the vampire in the original, Charlie has started to believe it was all his imagination and starts to forget that vampires truly exist - until four strangers lead by Regina, a noted actress, arrives at Peter Vincent's house and starts to have an unhealthy interest in Charlie, Peter and Charlie's new girlfriend Alex. It becomes clear that Regina is Jerry's (the vampire in the original film) sister and she is determined to get revenge on the friends and plans to turn Charlie into a vampire - so that he can face his punishment for all eternity. 1989

Dracula 2000
When a team of techno-savvy thieves break into a high-security vault, they don't discover priceless artwork, but a crypt that hasn't been opened for 100 years! Suddenly, the ancient terror of Dracula is unleashed in the chaotic 21st century. Free to follow his pursuits of seduction and power, Dracula's first destination is America and the exotic city of New Orleans, a place where he feels right at home. Not far behind, however, is a young vampire hunter from London, determined to save a young woman with whom Dracula shares his dark legacy! This movie has a great twist in the true identity of Dracula. 2000

Near Dark
Out along the isolated highways of the Midwest they wait...the undead, eager for the blood of their next victim. Kathryn Bigelow's grisly horror tale follows a young man who gets drawn into a clan of outlaw vampires and is soon faced with a dangerous decision: Destroy them or become indoctrinated into their ranks. 1987

30 Days of Night
In a small Alaskan town, thirty days of night is a natural phenomenon. Very few outsiders visit, until a band of bloodthirsty, deathly pale vampires mark their arrival by savagely attacking sled dogs. But soon they find there are much more satisfying thirst-quenchers about: human beings. One by one, the townspeople succumb to a living nightmare, but a small group survives - at least for now. The vampires use the dark to their advantage, and surviving this cold hell is a game of cat and mouse - and screams. 2007

John Carpenter's Vampires
Adapted from the novel Vampire$ by John Steakley, the film stars James Woods as Jack Crow, leader of a Catholic Church-sanctioned team of vampire hunters. The plot is centered on Crow's efforts to prevent a centuries-old cross from falling into the hands of Valek, a master vampire. 2008

The Night Stalker
Wisecracking reporter Carl Kolchak has a nose for the supernatural, a trait that leaves his editor exasperated and the police less than amused. When he insists that a late-night Las Vegas serial killer is a modern-day vampire, he's practically run out of town by the local authorities. Naturally, he stalks the vampire himself, an unlikely Van Helsing armed with a silver cross, a wooden stake, and his ever-present tape recorder and flashbulb camera. The quirky mix of horror and humor turned The Night Stalker into a ratings sensation that inspired a sequel "The Night Strangler" and a short-lived TV series Kolchak: The Night Stalker. 1972

Interview with a Vampire
The undead are among us and livelier than ever when Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and a talented group of young-bloods star in Interview with the Vampire, the spellbinding screen adaptation of Anne Rice's best seller. Cruise stylishly plays the supremely evil and charismatic vampire Lestat. Pitt is Louis, lured by Lestat into the immortality of the damned, then tormented by an unalterable fact of vampire life: to survive, he must kill. Interview with the Vampire offers enough thrills, shocks and fiendish fun to last a lifetime...and beyond. 2000

The Blade Trilogy
Based on the comic book of the same name, Wesley Snipes plays a half-mortal, half-immortal bent on ridding the world of all vampires.

Blade - A half-mortal, half-immortal bent on avenging his mother's death and destined to rid the earth of a race of vampires. Meanwhile, the modern-day technologically advanced vamps he's targeted are in pursuit of his special blood type needed to summon an evil god who plays a key role in their plan to execute the human race.

Blade II - Following a trail of blood that leads to Prague, Blade (aka the Daywalker) slays a legion of bloodsuckers in the search for his abducted mentor, Whistler. Soon Blade reluctantly joins forces with a band of skilled vampiric warriors called the Bloodpack to hunt down an even deadlier enemy--the monstrous Reapers, who prey on vampires and humans alike, infecting them with an incurable virus. In addition to battling these relentless new foes, Blade must deal with situations brought about by the Bloodpack's tenuous alliance --in particular, his attraction to the lovely Nyssa and his rivalry with the brutish Reinhardt. 2002

Blade Trinity - Here, a new challenge faces the preternaturally sharp hunter, Blade, when a group of vamps resurrect the long-slumbering "Drake" the ancient and all-powerful Count Dracula--and Blade meets the ultimate opponent. Teaming up with the Nightstalkers, a group of similar-minded hunters led by tough slayer Abigail and her partner Hannibal, Blade is ready for battle. However, Drake's handlers are an unruly bunch themselves, with sassy goth wench Danica doing her best to make things as unpleasant as possible. What's more, while Danica's vamp team is harvesting homeless people for their blood, the Nightstalkers' scientist creates a potion that can not only kill Drake, but can take the entire bloodsucking race with him. 2004

Let Me In
In bleak New Mexico, a forteen year old, lonely, bullied boy, Owen, forms a unique bond with his mysterious new neighbor, Abby. Trapped in the body of a twelve year old child, Abby is forced to hide a horrific secret of bloodthirsty survival. But in a world of both tenderness and terror, how can you invite in the one friend who may unleash the ultimate nightmare? 2010

Bram Stoker's Dracula
Gary Oldman and Winona Ryder star as Count Dracula and Mina Murray. She's betrothed to another man; he can't kick the habit of feeding off the living. Anthony Hopkins plays Van Helsing, the vampire slayer, with tongue firmly in cheek. Tom Waits is great fun as Renfield, the hapless slave of Dracula who craves the blood of insects and cats. Sadie Frost is a sexy Lucy Westenra. And poor Keanu Reeves, as Jonathan Harker, has the misfortune to be seduced by Dracula's three half-naked wives. There's a little bit of everything in this version of Dracula: gore, high-speed horseback chases, passion and longing. 1992

The Night Flier
From Stephen King, comes a new tale of terror. What flies by night in a dark winged Cessna, lands at secluded airports and brutally murders local residents? For one reporter, the story of a lifetime may be his last. 1998

Dark Shadows
From the wonderfully warped imagination of Tim Burton comes the story of Barnabas Collins, a dashing aristocrat who is turned into a vampire by a jilted lover and entombed for two centuries. Emerging from his coffin into the world of the seventies, he returns to his once-majestic home, only to the few dysfunctional descendants of the Collins family who remain. Determined to return his family name to its former glory, Barnabas is thwarted at every turn by his former lover - the seductive witch Angelique. 2012
