Best Vampire

Vampire bat drawn by Janice Seagraves

Since it's Halloween week, who in your opinion who is the best vampire and why?

Here's a short vampire list of old and new favorites. I'm just naming movies here, but if there's one I missed or there's a favorite vampire series you love, then please name the actor or actress, the show, and why you like him or her.

Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins
Bela Lugosi as Dracula
Keefer Sutherland in Lost Boys
Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire
Gary Oldman in Dracula
Christopher Lee as Dracula 
Adam Sandler as Dracula in Hotel Transylvania (new release)
Wesley Snipes as Blade
Kate Beckinsale as Slene in Underworld
Robert Pattinson as Edward in the Twilight movies

Kiefer Sutherland is a wonderful actor! I have never seen Lost boys though…
It is very thrilling with vampires and blood and so – especially after being a grown up, and being able to distance to the “dark-stuff”!! I was a nervous rack as a kid, wanted to see all the creepy movies – and jet not coping with the fear!!
I just love Halloween, but it’s not common to celebrate it here...

I kinda dig the vamps from True Blood and the vamps from Vampire Diaries! There are too many to pick just one though!

Tony-Paul said...

That's a difficult List to just pick one! You should catagorize it more: "Best Animated Dracula", "Best Dhampir/vampire Hunter", Best Traditional Vampire," "Best Campy Vampire." There are a lot of others who didn't make the list, like Natalie says, those from True Blood and Vampire Diaries. Love 'em all by the way, but going strictly from this list, I'd have to stick to the traditional ones and say Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise. (Since I can't add in my own creations!)

Hi Sono,

Oh, I didn't do horror movies well either when I was growing up. I still don't really like them, but I can tolerate the old one. The new ones have too much blood.

Hi Natalie,

I like true blood too. :) I haven't seen enough of Vampire Diaries to form an opinion.

Hi Tony-Paul,

That would be a long list with a lot of sub-categories, lol.

I like your choices: Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise did play awesome vampires.


Lee said...

Oh! It's a no-brainer for me! Give me Robert Pattinson any day (and night)!!! Yummy!

He can put his fangs under my bed anytime he feels like doing so!

I wish I was a few years younger!!! But age doesn't matter when it comes to dreaming! ;)

Hi Lee,

Your as young as you feel, although some of these young studs make me feel like a dirty little old lady, lol.


Lee said...

Hahahahahaha! I won't tell, if you don't, Janice!!! ;)

Janice Seagraves said...

Hi Lee,

Then is my secret safe with you? :)


Lee said...

What secret, Janice? ;)
