Personal Challenge: Vampire Movies

Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with writing… or does it?

I always tell people that if it has vampires in it, I’ll watch pretty much any movie. I may not like them all but I will watch them.

Due to this personality quirk, I have seen some fantastic vampire movies and I have seen some vampire movies that make me wish I had immortality just so I wouldn’t regret the time I wasted watching them.

Well, I’ve issued myself a challenge. I’m going to watch every vampire movie Netflix offers. I was browsing through the vampire movies section and I couldn’t pick one that caught my attention. Some of them were complete turn offs. BUT, I have a few vampire books coming up in my writing queue and I want to get into the neck-biting, blood-sucking mood.

Like all the other movies I watch, I will write up a review for my blog. Netflix has a LOT of vampire movies (thankfully some of them are on instant play so I don’t have to wait for the mail).

I have only one stipulation, if the movie sucks too badly, I’m not watching the whole thing. I refuse to torture myself with this challenge… too much. 😛

Just to start things off, I’m going to list off the vampire movies that I’ve already seen (that I can remember) and where they rate. That’ll set the tone for the coming reviews.

Awesome
(These are the ones I will watch over and over and never get tired of seeing them.)
– Blade
– Blade II
– Underworld
– Underworld 2
– Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
– Vampire Hunter D
– Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
– 30 Days of Night

Great
(These are the movies I had to get on DVD — or will get soon — because without them my vampire collection wouldn’t be complete and then I would feel guilty.)
– Bram Stoker’s Dracula
– Interview with a Vampire
– Queen of the Damned
– Dracula: The Dark Prince
– My Best Friend is a Vampire
– Once Bitten
– The Batman vs. Dracula
– Vampire In Brooklyn
– Twilight
– New Moon
– Eclipse
– Lost Boys
– Van Helsing

Good
(These are the movies I may watch again one day if I’m in a weird mood.)
– Blade Trinity
– Dracula III: Legacy
– Vampires: Los Muertos
– Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Movie
– The Breed
– Rise
– Lost Boys: The Tribe
– Daybreakers

Okay
(It was on TV and it beats getting up to put on a DVD — yes, I can be just that lazy at times.)
– Dracula II: Ascension
– Vampires
– Vampire Effect (Asian)
– Blood the Last Vampire (both live action & anime)
– Cirque de Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant

Never Want to See Again
– Immortality

Now it’s time to add to each of these lists. I’m sure the “Never Want to See Again” list will grow by leaps and bounds. 😛
