I'm writing a vampire story. It's a short and I hope to sub it for an anthology. I swore I'd never write a vampire story, but it really fits to make my hero one of the undead. I'm trying to avoid every stereotype in my prose, but dang it's difficult. There are so many of them, and let's face it ... the theme has been well played out.
But readers still seem to go gaga (and not in the Lady way) for them, so... I thought I'd list some of my favorite vampire movies. Yes, I've been watching them for inspiration, and maybe that new idea or twenty.
Vampires Suck ~ 2010. This was the one that spoofed the Twilight saga.
Interview With The Vampire ~ 1994. Loved the book, and the movie did it justice.
Blade ~ 1998. Yeah. No need to elaborate here.
Underworld ~ 2003. Some really cool special effects in this one.
Forever Knight ~ 1989 to 1996. Not a movie, but a TV show that I was so sad to see end.
Son of Dracula ~ 1943. Campy and hysterical.
Bram Stoker's Dracula ~ 1992. Cream of the crop. Lush and scenic.
Salem's Lot ~ 1979. Based on the novel by Stephen King. Need I say more?
Nosferatu ~ 1922. Still the scariest of them all.
Dark Shadows ~ 1966-1971. We lived to watch this show every afternoon.
Did I list your favorite?
