What makes the 10 best vampire attacks in movies so exciting is the element of surprise the pure evilness and gore. Vampire movies have been around for many decades and they don't seem to be going anywhere with the popularity of new movies like the “Twilight” series.

  1. The entire premise of the movie “30 Days of Night” puts it on the top of the list of best vampire attacks. This 2007 flick, starring Josh Hartnett and Melissa George, tells the story of an Alaskan town that is attacked by a band of vampires during a period of 30 days with no sunrise. It is full of blood and gore.

  2. 1996's “From Dusk Till Dawn” has a group of hostages under duress by a couple crimina brothers that find themselves stuck in a bar full of vampires. Salma Hayek plays the sexy vampire known as Satanico Pandemonium. When the vamps smell blood and all hell breaks loose, the movie starts to get good. It also stars Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis and Cheech Marin.

  3. 1992's adaptation of “Bram Stoker's Dracula” has a rated “R” scene that makes this list of best vampire attacks. When Gary Oldman's Count Dracula attacks Mina's friend Lucy Westenra in animal form, viewers become mortified but cannot take their eyes off the screen.

  4. In 2003, “Underworld” introduced us to the battle between vampires and lycans (werewolves). The war between these supernatural creatures makes this list of best vampire attacks because for once the vampires weren't just attacking the human race!

  5. “Blade,” the half vampire played by Wesley Snipes, is also on this list for his regard for human life. The best attack in this movie was when Blade's mother was attacked by a vampire while she was pregnant. This is how the movie begins. Unfortunately, Blade's mother dies, bot not until after giving birth to her hero son.

  6. “The Lost Boys” was a phenomenon in it's time. This 1987 vampire flick starring Jason Patrick, the Corey's, and Kiefer Sutherland is a cult classic to this day. The attack on the Frog brothers and gang when they enter the lair is classic. But not as classic as the words Grandpa utters at the end of the movie: “One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires.”

  7. “Interview With the Vampire” was the first of the Anne Rice vampire novels to get turned into a movie. The best vampire attack in this film is when Louis decides to find himself a rat to eat. Louis made a living out of avoiding human blood consumption. Stars of this film were Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst.

  8. “Dracula 2000” put a new twist on the origin of Dracula, but the best vampire attack in this movie was on the plane. Bein up in the air with Dracula in a casket was scary enough, but letting him loose, now that was a dumb idea. Gerard Butler played the fanged lord in this one.

  9. In the second Anne Rice vampire movie, “Queen of the Damned,” the best vampire attack was when the group of vampires gave Queen Akasha (played by Aaliyah) what was coming to her. They drained her blood until she turned to dust. This clever movie stars Stuart Townsend as Lestat.

  10. In the live action “Blood: the Last Vampire,” based on anime, there is a great scene of vampire vs. vampire. When Saya, a vampire who fights with a blade and kills other demons, attacks the two vampire girls in the school gym after they attack her friend, there is no doubt that Saya will win this fight.
