There Are Many Good Vampire Movies
Good Vampire Movies
... but Hammer films are my favorites: Dracula (1958), Brides of Dracula (1960), Kiss of the vampire (1963), The vampire Lovers and Lust for a vampire (both 1970), Twins of evil (1971), Vampire circus (1972)... gorgeous Gothic atmosphere with rich colors, costumes and sets.
Violet, love, love, love Hammer films. For many of us that is how our intrigue regarding vampires came about.
That and old school film-making.
Bela Lugosi, Christpher Lee, Peter Cushing... 'I vant to suck your blood.' Legendary, seductive, ruthless, powerful.
Also, I love how the Hammer films maintain that creepy impending doom feel during the scary parts. Lightning, thunder, hypnotic eye gazes. Classic!
Thanks for your contribution Violet and in it reminding us of vampire films to be longed for. Bring back the power vamp!
