I'm not really a big fan on vampires, (I'm more there with the werewolves. :D ) but I gotta say I do really love Interview with the Vampire! It's easily one of my favourite films.

I just do love a horror film (I would really say it is angst more than anything) that doesn't rely on blood and gore to give you just a little bit of a chill, think ''bloody disgusting''etc, and the black humour in it mixes in well with the chaotic madness of it all.

Just intrigued to what people would say their favourite vampire movie is, and hope that the most percent will not say Twilight. We can't call that sugary fluff nonsense a good scare of a movie. Haha.

Fright Night is definitely a great one, and Dusk Till Dawn is more of a horror comedy, but great nonetheless. The Lost boys has got to be in there, too. Packed with hot vampires, killer music, and a comedic, yet, great, storyline. Have you seen the Lost Boys at all?

And Interview with ''A'' vampire - The film is ''the'' vampire, is it not? I've read the book, too, but am sure it's the same as the film title as well. I could be wrong though. And Queen of the Damned (movie)...I found that to be a real big flop!

I haven't seen Stake Land or Vamp. Are they rather good then? I know I need to see Near Dark. That's been recommended to me many times, but I have yet to buy it.

Oh, I just lover Hammer films (I do prefer Amicus productions mind you) though I haven't seen Dracula, or any of the classics of them. There are quite a few though. (By Hammer alone) I will have to watch some sometime though. :)

I've seen the new one, and I thought it to be rather rubbish, which has made me not bother watching the original. It could be good though, so I should give it a whirl.

And on my list, I totally forgot to put (Stephen King) The Night Flier. That truly is a great film!

I thought Let Me In was great and i actually preferred one part of it vs. the original. But Let The Right One In is an amazing movie and you should check it out.

That's the one where it's all in his mind, isn't it? I haven't seen the film, but someone did tell me about it, and said it was fairly okay. It seems there are quite a few ''vampy'' films I need to watch, particularly those of the classics. :)

I'm sure you've done it before, as most people have. I mean take this forum for example, if someone were to mention on this thread about a certain vampire film they liked and their favourite scene (If that had of been what I was curious to hear) then wouldn't they being giving it away for the people who haven't seen that certain film? Nobody would have said anything then. :D That sort of thing always happens when people ''talk and have discussions'' about certain topics.

I apologise if I've got your back up!

How did I get insulting!? Do clarify that one. Did I say something offensive? No, I did not. Yes, you are entitled to give your opinion as freely as anyone on this site, and so am I, but maybe there's no need for you to get so uptight because I may have given something away. I didn't do it intentionally (sp?) or on purpose, but merely because I was making conversation with another member on this site.

I haven't been offensive nor insulting, so please...It seems maybe you are the one looking for an argument. I was merely giving an example earlier on and it was you who subtly bit back. There's no need for that!

If you thought i was being uptight then you are going to have a lot of problems in life dealing with people because i was no where near being uptight. I said something that bothered me, i didnt insult you or get uptight like you said. You decided to be sarcastic and sensitive instead of just having a regular conversation with me.

Then perhaps you should rephrase your words then. It is easy to take things out of context, but it seemed that you were getting bitchy merely to the fact I may have given something away. Big deal to be fair! It's nothing to get so pissy about, but then again, you said that wasn't the case. Maybe that was me, but whatever.

And maybe if you didn't put in your two cents when I gave a comment to someone, we wouldn't be having this conversation now, would we?

If the other person feels I have insulted them, then I will apologise, but please don't start throwing around accusations when I have done nothing wrong!

Oh, and sarcastic. It seems I'm not only one that is misreading things!

-----------------

Most people hate it but I dug John Carpenter's Vampires.

Agree with everyone who mentioned Near Dark, Fright Night, Vamp and Martin (vampire movie? that debatable I guess) they all rule. The original Nosferatu is a favourite of mine too.

Let Me In & Let The Right One In both impressed me. Sacrilege for some but I think I enjoyed the American one better (more fresh on the mind anyway).

Need to watch all the Hammer stuff again. Enjoyed the atmosphere first time round but found them a little dry and dull. Lee fucking killed it anyways and is perhaps the most iconic Dracula for me.

My word wasn't that the sequel to "The Hunger"? goodness I saw those when I was very young and can barely remember them-so besides them my faves:

Cronos
Vampyr
Nosferatu
Night Of The Devils (if I remember right it was the 1972 one with vampires or 1971-ialways get them confused)
The Addiction (if people can list Martin then I can say this)
Vamp
The Lost Boys
Interview With The Vampire
Let The Right One In

All time? Nosferatu The Vampire. (The Herzog film). I'm of the belief that if you plan on remaking a movie you should take the concept a good distance from the original (like The Thing or The Fly), but this film is really just beautiful and adds just the right elements (namely, the Count has a kit more personality in this version)

That said, I love the original too. Martin's also great as is Salem's Lot (if it were shorter that'd be a bonus) and 30 Days of Night is good in places.

Ultimately, the best Vampires IMO are the traditional Nosferatu style Bat/Human hybrids. Creepy.
