10. Josh Hartnett as Sheriff Eben Oleson in 30 Days of Night
So I’ve decided to make Interview with a Vampire an honorable mention and change my number ten to 30 days of night because I actually saw this one and was completely freaked out at parts. Josh Hartnett (Mr. Thing) plays a sheriff in one of the smallest towns ever. A town in Alaska where for 30 days out of the year, there is complete darkness. Because of this, a pack of vampires decides to pray on the town and kill and feed on all of the inhabitants. They are smart and they love to play games. Granted Josh Hartnett spends about one day as a vampire, because after the turn he knows he doesn’t want to hurt the people he loves so he opts for the old wait for the sun to come up and disintegrate into ash trick. One thing I will say though, the turnees [yes, totally made that word up, but I like it] definitely reminded me more of zombies than vampires. Odd.
9. Stuart Townsend as Lestat De Lioncourt in Queen of the Damned
I have also not seen or read The Queen of the damned, but I have heard ALOT about it and some of my friends in ceramics class back in the high school days brought it up all the time and even made some art work in dedication to it. This is the third series to Anne Rice’s Novels, The Vamire Chronicles and this stars Lastat the vampire who actually turned Louis (Number 10 on the list. Right above Number nine) into a vampire. Apparently he is awoken after many years of slumber by a rock band that he then becomes the singer of. Odd. In this film Lestat participates in quite a few shanannigan’s, but hey, when you are a very powerful vampire, how can you resist?
8. Richard Roxburgh as Count Vladislaus Dracula in Van Helsing
Count Vladislaus Dracula is a total manwhore vampire who has three different wives. His one quest is to reproduce and keep alive all of his little vampire freak children. To do this he must obtain a Frankenstein and use his power to keep them alive. In the end, like every evil villian with a death wish for the world, he does not succeed. Alot of people hated Van Helsing. The reviews were mediocore at best. I will stand by it and I thouroughly enjoyed the movie. This is why my vampire friend Count Vladislaud Dracula made the list.
7. Bill Nighy as Viktor in Underworld
Now Viktor is the big Shabang. He exchanged his military expertise in killing off the Lycan for immortality as a vampire general. Now he is a vampire elder and he is in hibernation and is not to be awoken for another 100 years. (So you can imagine how serious this vampire is, and how powerful). Selene, in her need for help believes that only Viktor can save Michael and her from all of the corruption and awakens him early with her own blood. Let me tell you, this vampire looks gross and I’m sure he smelled rank. One big powerful feirce vampire that would suck every drop of blood right from your body in a single heartbeat. I wouldn’t want to mess with him.
6.Sarah Michelle Geller In Buffey the Vampire Slayer Duh.
Yes Yes, I know what you all are thinking. [How can Buffey be on this list when she’s really not a vampire?!?!] Well blah blah. First of all, this is my list and I can put whoever I want on it and Second of all, I used her to represent all of the vampires in the series that she has killed. Although I have never been a fan of the Buffey series I know a lot of people are and its a shame not to include this series since it is the first great and memorable vampire series. So all of you Buffey the Vampire Slayer Obsessed fans, this is a shout out to you.
5. Salma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium in From Dusk till Dawn
From Dusk Till Dawn. Great Movie. Definitely trumps dawn of the dead and all of those corney zombie movies. When I first saw this movie I loved it and it is still great even today. The women seductress’s did their job quite well. They kept the attention of the men until feeding time. That was until George Clooney got a hold of them. One of the best lines is when he is shaking the priest and he says “Are you a faithless preacher or are you a mean mother fucking servant of God.” I got the chills when he said that, and I knew instantly where it was from when it turned up in a song by Through the Eyes of the Dead.
4. Wesley Snipes as Blade
Blade. Saver of people and half vampire half human. Super human. He takes shots of blood to quench the thirst and he preys on vampires as he tries to do human kind some good. The three part series is a must see for any vampire fanatic. Love it. He even has a guy that makes him all of this cool gadgets that he can use to kill vampires effiently and effectively. He’s super cool.
3. Keifer Sutherland as David in The Lost Boys
The Lost boys. A very old movie that has become iconic to vampire movies. When I first saw this movie, I was shocked how bad the vampires were. How creepy. I loved their lost boys type cave and the havoc they caused moving from town to town. In the end the vampire leader turned out to be the man dating Michael and Sams mom. Huge creaper, who even ate garlic without flinching. In the end the old stake in the heart did him it. Terrible shame he went that way considering that its the most unappealing way to die of all the possiblities. P.S. Doesn’t Keifer Sutherland look exactly the same now as when he made this movie? Maybe he is a vampire…. hmmm…
2. Kate Beckinsdale as Selene in Underworld
Love her, and Love Underwold and Underworld Evolution. Kate Bechinsdale plays a very becoming vampire who refuses to give in to the corrupt leaders that are in charge of her race (Kraven). After following Michael around and shadowing his every move, Lucian the man in charge of the Lycans attacks him. Because she is emotionally attached she saves him and together she and Michael, a half vampire half lycan (werewolf) team up on a quest for the truth. A very very good vampire tale.
1. Edward Cullen From Twilight
I’m not giving the credit to Robert Pattison whom plays Edward Cullens in Twilight (Like you didn’t know this). Edward Cullen himself holds the number one spot on the list. The Edward Cullen I knew before all of the tween freaks got involved and hyped up the movie and the book freakishly. Edward Cullen, a couple century year old vampire boy that falls in love with a seventeen year old tom boyish girl is the vampire who takes number one on this list. He can not resist bella because her blood sings to him. Everyone I know wants to find themselves an Edward Cullen. The fact that he must suck blood to survive is just a minor issue. And it is very minor indeed.
