Brooklyn Ann | 10 Quirky or Offbeat Vampire Movies

twitterfacebook

Most of us are familiar with classics like The Lost Boys, Salem's Lot, Fright Night, and my favorite, Interview With the Vampire, but Iíd like to share some of the lesser known vampire movies. Some are cult classics and others are obscure, but theyíre all a ton of fun.

Shadow Of The Vampire

This is an extremely unique film about the making of the 1922 classic, Nosferatu. John Malkovich plays Max Shrek, the actor cast as the role of Count Orlock. The funny thing is that Shrek actually is a vampire!

Dracula: Dead and Loving It

I freakiní LOVE Mel Brooks and this spoof on Dracula has all the slapstick goodness one could desire. Leslie Nielsen spoofs Gary Oldmanís role as Dracula, but I think Renfield stole the show with his flat-out goofiness.

The Night Flyer

Stephen King does yet another creative take on vampires in this film about a serial-killing vampire pilot.

Vampire Party

This French Film about a trio who gets invited to an elite private party held in a remote mansion features spoofs on top of spoofs. Itís the ultimate in cheeseball goodness.

Vampire Hunter D

An incredible, classic Anime, this might be one of the first steampunk cartoons ever made. And itís as evocative as itís creative. ÖAnd I never knew a cartoon vamp could be so hot!

From Dusk Till Dawn

Fact: When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez team up, they make awesome happen. The first half of the movie has you thinking itís an action/ black comedy hybrid, but the story takes a turn when two criminal brothers take a hijacked RV and their hostages to a Mexican bar thatís only open at night. When the vampires emerge, the audience is treated to a fabulous combination of gore, action, and humorous moments.

Vampire Effect

Jackie Chan directed this, so you know itíll be delightfully silly. When vampire slayers get caught in the middle of a vampire turf war, conflict, comedy, and a touching romance ensues. Also, the good vampire has the most pimped out coffin Iíve ever seen.

Blackula

An African prince get turned into a vampire by Count Dracula and later finds his way to 1970ís Los Angeles in search of his reincarnated lost love. Thereís plenty of horror, humor, and some parts that made me tear up a bit.

Suck

A really sucky band all of a sudden becomes popular when their bassist is turned into a vampire. For some reason that makes her hair flow around a lot without wind, though her talent didnít improve. Anyway, she turns the band one by one (But the band still sucks) and they have a wacky time balancing feeding their hunger and getting to the next gig.

And the vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsing is on their trail. Plus, Alice Cooper has a few cameos!

Subspecies

These movies are my favorite. Nearly all the budget went to filming on site in Romania, so there are bitchiní ruins and a really cool Romanian festival featured. However, the storyline and special effects are cheesy but endearing. And the villain is just plain fun!

Re: Brooklyn Ann | 10 Quirky or Offbeat Vampire Movies

I have this on my must-read list! I loved your first book in
this series, Bite Me, Your Grace! Congrats on your new
release!

I'm not one for movies, unfortunately, because my life is a
bit busy at the moment, but a classic that I remember from
years ago is - Love at First Bite. George Hamilton starred
in it, and I don't remember who else was in the cast, but it
was a humorous and a bit of a romantic film. I use the word
romantic loosely. I love the cover of your book, and would
love to read it, even though it's not my normal genre.
There's something about your postings that just urge me to
want to try your books. You have that fun, quirky, side, to
such a deep genre for your chosen writings. Congratulations
on your book!! I'm sure you have a great following!!

I haven't seen any of these vampire movies, but vampires and
zombies are getting more popular.
