Dracula (1931)

The classic film based on Bram Stoker’s novel is the gold standard by which all subsequent vampire movies are judged. It stars Bella Lugosi as the bloodthirsty Transylvanian count — a role that would immortalize him. A massive hit at the time of its release, Dracula paved the way for the rest of the beloved Universal monster movies.

The Brides of Dracula (1960)

This chiller from the legendary British horror studio Hammer put a new, Technicolor spin on the traditional vampire story. Due to a casting dispute, the bad count never makes an appearance in the film and is replaced by his bloodsucking disciples and a boarding school full of damsels in distress. The creepy gore-fest, which many consider to be Hammer’s finest film, is not to be missed.

The Vampire Diaries

This beloved young-adult series created by Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson ran for eight blood-soaked seasons. In it, the eternally quarrelling vampire brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore return to their ancestral (fictional) town of Mystic Falls, Virginia, to court — and fight over — Elena Gilbert, a local high school girl who is the spitting image of their previous love from a different time. The entire series is yours to stream from beginning to end.

Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)

Acclaimed German director Werner Herzog’s take on Count Dracula is a weird, visually stunning horror masterpiece. Starring Klaus Kinsky as the immortal count and Isabelle Adjani as his doomed paramour Lucy Harker, this pseudo-remake of the first vampire film from 1922 will fill you with dread and scare you to death. It’s a must-see.

Vampire in Vegas (2009)

There is no end to the parade of campy, B-movie vampire movies, and this is a worthy entry. When a 300-year-old vampire hires a genetic scientist to find a cure for sunlight, she unwittingly unleashes a horde of bloodthirsty freaks on a group of Sin City partiers. If you prefer your vampires with their tongues planted firmly in-cheek, this one’s for you.
