"And the lion's roar, the lion's roar."

For no particular reason, I think I'll post a list of what I consider the twenty-nine very best vampire films (in no particular order):

01. The Hunger (1983)
02. The Lost Boys (1987)
03. Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
04. Vampire's Kiss (1989)
05. Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922)
06. Byzantium (2012)
07. Låt den rätte komma in (2008)
08. Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
09. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
10. Shadow of the Vampire (2000)
11. Drácula (1931, "Spanish Dracula")
12. The Brides of Dracula (1963)
13. Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)
14. Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)
15. Stake Land (2010)
16. Vampyr (1932)
17. Fright Night (1985)
18. Vamp (1986)
19. 30 Days of Night (2007)
20. Innocent Blood (1992)
21. Blood: The Last Vampire (2000)
22. Priest (2011)
23. Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (1975)
24. The Reflecting Skin (1990)
25. The Addiction (1995)
26. Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary (2002)
27. Nadja (1994)
28. Near Dark (1987)
29. From the Dark (2014)

I know, of course, that I left out your personal favorite. That was inevitable. Interestingly, there are no great vampire films from the 1940s and 1950s.*

No writing yesterday. I read through what there is of "Dead Letter Officer" with Kathryn, and we talked about the problems I'm having with the piece. Not what I'd call a productive day.

* Some would protest that the first Hammer Dracula (1958) should be on this list; I disagree.
