Vampires in Film

One thing we aren't short of in this world is vampire movies. The list is seemingly endless. They were even popular with the silent movie crowd. The earliest one that really made an impression was a German made film called "Nosferatu", dating back to 1922 with Max Schrek cast in the role of the infamous vampire.

Count Dracula has come a long way since those early silent efforts. In fact, he's everywhere in living color, even on your TV screen. "Dark Shadows" was an effort at a vampire soap opera and it's still available on DVD. "Buffy the Vampire" and "Angel" are two very popular television and fantastic TV series that have now gained huge cult following, especially Buffy.

But the big screen is where the creatures thrive, in living color. Vampire movies range from slapstick comedy to blood curdling horror to erotica and outright pornography. And that's the appeal of the nefarious Count. He can be either terrifying or romantic. The ladies either scream with fear or swoon with desire. Such is the nature of the beast. And he does both well and in a variety of languages, from English to French, Italian to Spanish to Japanese, and no doubt a dozen others as well.

There's no way any one person could review every vampire movie made without going mad. I've chosen to list a few of the more popular titles.
