Update May 4 2016
Seems the remakes still are “under development” which is cool. Not that there’s too much hope – but still, there are literally no vampire movies out there, so new ones are always great. And still looking forward to see reimaginations of the classics…
Original post from August 8 2012
Vampires are the most popular fictional creatures in history and yet there are so few movies (even less good ones) about them… I just don’t get it.
Here is a list of all the (major) movies involving vampires – ignoring everything before the 70s.
The Great Ones
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Queen of the Damned
Untitled Sam Mendes vampire hunter (Unknown)
Blade: The Series (pretty cool)
True Blood (more or less okay)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (bad)
Kindred: The Embraced (bad)
The Vampire Diaries (bad)
Too bad most vampire projects are just about some kind of supernatural monster horror story instead of a dark and sexy Gothic tale about deep sadness, desperation and “eternal greed”.
Still waiting for some kind of Vampire The Masquerade: Redemption movie project…
A Gothic trilogy about a vampire travelling through time for his love… as well as finally a movie version of the greatest (German) musical Tanz der Vampire (based on Polanskis comedy).
You can dream, right?! :)
