So, turns out I actually omitted one of my favorite vampire movies off the list yesterday, Dracula's Daughter (1936). So, I'm going to repost the list, this time in chronological order, with that addition of that film:

01. Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922)
02. Drácula (1931, "the Spanish Dracula")
03. Vampyr (1932)
04. Dracula's Daughter (1936)
05. The Brides of Dracula (1963)
06. Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)
07. Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (1975)
08. Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)
09. The Hunger (1983)
10. Vamp (1986)
11. Fright Night (1985)
12. The Lost Boys (1987)
13. Near Dark (1987)
14. Vampire's Kiss (1989)
15. The Reflecting Skin (1990)
16. Innocent Blood (1992)
17. Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
18. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
19. Nadja (1994)
20. The Addiction (1995)
21. Blood: The Last Vampire (2000)
22. Shadow of the Vampire (2000)
23. Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary (2002)
24. 30 Days of Night (2007)
25. Låt den rätte komma in (2008)
26. Stake Land (2010)
27. Priest (2011)
28. Byzantium (2012)
29. Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
30. From the Dark (2014)

A film that will not, I hope, be on anyone's list of favorite vampire films is 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, Ben Ketai's 2010 sequel to 30 Day's of Night. We watched it last night, because making this list had me in the mood for a vampire film. Fangoria's review was spot on, noting that it "departs from [the first film] as the film progresses. What follows is a generic story with flat characters set in an uninspired locale." And may I never have cause to quote Fangoria ever, ever again. Ugh.


It's currently 76˚F in Providence.

Today, I have to get back on the horse. So to speak.
