It's just a trend that comes and goes. You'll get a bunch of books/movies with scary vampires for a number of years, and then it will switch to lighter, funnier stuff. Rinse, repeat.

The Vampire chronicles is a great book by Anne Rice about humans who turned into vampires, real vampires! it has a movie called "The interview with the vampire" which is based on the first book only but my favorite books are "The Vampire Lestat", "Queen of the Damned" (also has a movie) and "The vampire Armand". Those books have sexiness, gore and horror combined.

I have never watched Vampire diaries and I hated Twilight because of the stupid plot and sassy vampires.

I like vampire films that go against the grain like The Addiction, Blood for Dracula, Marebito, Martin, Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979) , The Wurdulak segment of Black Sabbath, Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter, Rabid, Cronos , Let the Right One In, and even to a certain extent, Blood Spattered Bride.

As for ones with traditional vampire themes I enjoy Nosferatu (1922), Dracula (1958), Dracula:Prince of Darkness, Taste the Blood of Dracula, Blacula.


hmm yes, some of these I like too. let's remember coppola's dracula with gary oldman as dracula and tony scott's the hunger (with david bowie, catherine deneuve and susan sarandon; the latter two rollicking in furs together) both more erotic takes on dracula and vampirism. but also kathryn bigelow's vampire western, near dark with a proto twilight romance or salem's lot far more nosferatu influenced, pure evil, and animalistic.
