5 Best Vampire Horror Movies

Tuesday, January 25 by Nicki Porter

Sorry, Robert Pattinson fans, you won't find any "Twilight" movies on this list of 5 best vampire horror movies. What you will find, however, is a mixture of classic and modern vampire tales from the likes of Bram Stoker, Stephen King, and Sergei Lukyanenko. From Bela Lugosi to Gary Oldman, from 1922 to 2004, here are the best vampire horror movies of all time.

  1. "Nosferatu." Some film critics argue that this silent 1922 horror movie is the best vampire movie of all time. Max Schreck is masterful as the rodent-featured Nosferatu and the movie's silence adds to the creepiness of the age-old tale based on Bram Stoker's "Dracula."  
  2. "Dracula." When you think of vampires, you think of Dracula. When you think about Dracula, you're probably thinking of Bela Lugosi in 1931's black-and-white horror classic, "Dracula."  
  3. "Salem's Lot." Remember when Stephen King wrote good horror novels? Yeah, us too. This 1979 movie version of King's classic novel is on par with King classics like "The Shining" and "Carrie."  
  4. "Night Watch." Some critics may not call this 2004 Russian thriller a horror movie, but it definitely has its moments of terror. This movie, based on the book series by Sergei Lukyanenko, offers a completely unique view on vampires that goes way beyond wooden stakes and garlic cloves.  
  5. "Bram Stoker’s Dracula." Back in the age where you couldn't make a movie without first casting Winona Ryder, Francis Ford Coppola tried his hand at vampire movies in this 1992 flick that starred Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Gary Oldman,  Cary Elwes, and Keanu Reeves.
