5 Vampire Movies for a Cozy Date Night

Tori and I love scary movies! Since Halloween’s almost here, I’m rounding up five great vampire flicks you can watch with your significant other:

  1. Near Dark (1987) – this indie film by Kathryn Bigelow (who won an Oscar for 2008’s The Hurt Locker) follows a family of vampires on the run. It’s one of my all time favorites.
  2. Interview With the Vampire (1994)an oldie but a goodie. Anyone who loves New Orleans will enjoy this, and of course the ladies won’t mind watching Christian Slater, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise onscreen for two+ hours.
  3. Underworld (2003) – the perfect flick for those of you who like your vampire movies to be packed with as many high-octane special effects and intricately choreographed fight scenes as possible.
  4. Buffy The Vampire Slayer” (1997-2003 TV Series) – who doesn’t love a good “Buffy” marathon? Good luck getting any sleep once you get hooked on this series.
  5. Let The Right One In (2008) – this creepy thriller from Sweden follows an outcast who falls in love with a beautiful vampire.

And if you’re not into vampire movies, but still want something scary, check out Drag Me To Hell (2009). I love this movie, it’s really creepy.

What are some of your favorite scary movies that I should check out?

  • Jennifer Borden

    scary – oops

  • Susan Morris

    Def love this type of post, you should do more of these in the future. Maybe a holiday movie list or something.
    Near Dark is super underrated in general but I think people who are really into movies/horror always know this one and love it.
    Love Buffy being included.

    LOVE Interview with the Vampire! Agree with Jennifer Borden’s comment about The Sixth Sense. There’s others out there that I love as well but those two are a must! Can’t forget about Freddy either!!

    All time thriller, how could you forget:
    The Exorcist

  • Erin

    Not a big vampire lover(unless its Rob Pattinson) guess it’s the sucking blood thing but it can’t be Halloween without the original Michael Myers. All the original movies are always better than the remakes my opinion.

    Love vampires always have. “Let me in starring Chloe G. Moretz” is a creepy take on a kid vampire, or “30 days of night starring Josh Hartnett” will get your pulse racing. If your in the mood for a comedic take on the vampire scene try checking out “Once Bitten starring a young Jim Carrey and Lauren Hutton”. Or if you’re feeling a bit nostalgic, you pop in “Dracula starring Bela Lugosi’ (He was, is and will always be the best vampire portrayer in my mind). Give one of these a spin tonight!
