Near Dark (1987)
Wild tale of a bunch of vampires invading a bar. Great tension and action.
Fright Night (1985 film)
Along with The Lost Boys, one of the best comedies about vampires. Rhoddy McDowell at his best!
Theatrical exhibition poster
The first and best of the trilogy with Wesley Snipes as the mutant vampire who hunts vampires.
The Lost Boys
The two Coreys battle Keifer Sutherland and his gang in one of the most fun teenage battles.
House of Dark Shadows a movie
The first time a television show made it to the big screen. Great story of the tragic figure Barnabas Collins.

Dracula (1931 movie)
The all-time classic and the most memorable Dracula ever!
See the full review, "Timeless!".
From Dusk Till Dawn
Harvey Keitel and George Clooney lead the vampire hunters in one of the best screen battles of all time. Salma Hayack at her most gorgeous best!

I have all these on my shelves in alphabetical order because I am slightly OCD. Love everyone of these movies!

Did you decide to just limit yourself to the 10, or are there really only 10?
March 28, 2010
I guess when I was writing them I got to 10 and thought that was a good round number.

I always have a problem limiting myself to such a small number.

You think bigger thoughts than I do. lol

Hardly. I just can't make up my mind and limit myself to 10 of anything!

Cool list. About your explanation on #8, actually, Bela also played a vampire (sort of, he was actually an actor playing a vampire) in "Mark of the Vampire" in 1935. That film was also directed by Tod Browning, who did the 1931 "Dracula", and was a remake of the now lost 1927 horror film "London After Midnight" starring Lon Chaney, Sr.. I wish that they had video documentation of Bela's stage performance of "Dracula". I've heard that he was far less restrained and used his unusual physicality for greater dramatic effect.

I vaguely remember Mark of the Vampire (I seem to remember Bela with a woman in a white nightgown) but I last saw that film about 30 years ago so I can't rate it.

Yeah, over all it's not a bad film, but I wish that they hadn't censored the script.

These are the films that I go back to time and again. And they are in some sort of approximate order, but I wouldn't take the order too seriously.
