Vampires


 Every once in a while, a film comes along that takes a stale genre and makes it completely new and cool again. Ana Lily Amirpour's debut film, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, is the vampire film that makes the creatur...


Universal's monster movies may have actually been the forerunner to the modern "cinematic universe" trend we're seeing thanks to Marvel as they often crossed over with each other and had stylistic similarities, but that doesn...


Only Lovers Left Alive features Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as cultured vampire lovers, whose romance has lasted for centuries. They have evolved and become more civilized than the need to kill for blood, but retain a v...


Back when I reviewed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, I admired the saga's balance of tones (I gave the film a 75, and still stand by it to this day) but I absolutely hated the film's cheap CG effects. For the first ...




Vampire Academy (dropping the Blood Sisters subtitle) is pretty much a movie made for me. It's got cute girls that are really cute vampires, it's adapted from the book by the same writer who wrote Heathers (which is one of t...


On its surface, a vampire film is the last thing I'd expect out of Jim Jarmusch. Then again, the same can be said about a hitman movie (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, The Limits of Control) and a western (Dead Man). And s...


There are many reasons to love Nicolas Cage, as our own Nathan Hardisty has noted. One of the most compelling cases for loving the man is the 1988 Robert Bierman film Vampire's Kiss. The movie features one of Cage's Cage-iest...


At this rate there won't be anymore young adult novels to adapt to the big screen. Vampire Academy:Blood Sisters does seem a bit special in that totally nondescript way since it looks like a cross between Harry Potter a...


Imagine you are in a large store and off in the distance you see a quilt. It’s an intriguing design, and you walk towards it, fascinated. It’s really a gorgeous thing, brilliantly composed with designs depicting b...


I'm a fan of Jim Jarmusch's movies. He has a weird way of turning moments of boredom into something complicated and interesting, as seen in Stranger Than Paradise, Down by Law, Night on Earth, and Mystery Train. He's also cap...


Kiss of the Damned is yet another sexy vampire movie, who's characters much choose between romantic passion and bloodlust. In Kiss of the Damned, the lovely vampiress Djuna succumbs to the advances of human Paolo and soon he...


Continuing popular culture's seemingly never satisfied fascination with vampires - Neil Jordan, the creator of Interview with a Vampire, brings us the heady, red shifted Byzantium. The story follows a mother and daughter pai...


The next book series fighting for the attention of the tweensies is Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy. Reliance Entertainment and IM Global have purchased the rights to adapt the first in the six (SIX) book series, Vampire...


When I first read the word "vampire" I immediately began to think 'We're still doing this? Really?' So it's fair to say I had already made my judgments before even seeing this trailer for Byzantium, which, quite honestly, ma...


There's no real way to predict what you're getting when watching one of the Twilight films. You either get a surprisingly corny and fun film (the first Twilight) or you'll get something severely disappointing like Breaki...


Francis Lawrence's I Am Legend (starring Will "Movin' in with your Auntie and Uncle in Bel Air" Smith) was okay. Not bad, not great, but okay. Part of the reason my enjoyment for it was tempered was that the vampires had cha...


In the straight to DVD flick releasing next Tuesday, (why Norm why?) Norm MacDonald plays a talking dog who drinks the color red from like jelly and stuff. Then a "Cruella De Vil" type villainess tries to catc...


To celebrate E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (one of the most redundant names ever)'s 30th anniversary Blu-ray release, Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies, and Universal Pictures are showing the digital remastered version ...


I am so glad that I decided to use quotations when I described the last "final" trailer. This new "final" final trailer has a lot of the same footage as the previous one (it even shares the same thumbnail!), but it comes wit...


Last night during MTV's VMA's (which I totes wasn't watching, I swear!), the "final" trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part II, or Twilight 5 for short, was released. Naturally, I freaked out...I mean, the little...


Leave it to Hollywood to fill the void of originality with completely off the wall, bats**t craziness. Will Smith is apparently going to star in a film that retells the Biblical story of Cain and Abel...except with vampires. ...


Like everyone else, I've been looking forward to Genndy Tartakovsky's Hotel Transylvania because I miss the heck out of his genius (why was Sym-Bionic Titan cancelled?!?). This new clip gives a little something beyond what's...


Matt was reasonably partial to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, releasing today. If you're like me, though, you probably took one look at the trailers and said, "Poppycock! Such a premise is beneath me, save in the form of a...


In case you've forgotten, the final entry in the Twilight series features a werewolf(Tay-Lautes) that falls in love with a child(Mackenzie Foy) with the absolutely normal name of Renesemee. Photographic evidence is above...


Yep, that's certainly a trailer for the last Twilight movie. I feel like this must inspire the same feelings in Twilight fans that the Dark Knight Rises trailer from yesterday inspired in me. They're going to ...


Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 was possibly one of the stupidest stories I've seen on screen, and this is coming from a guy who could actually tolerate the previous two films (not the first one, though). I can't even imagine ...


At one point set to be scored by Philip Glass, Park Chan-Wook's Stoker now boasts Clint Mansell as its composer. Mansell, Oscar-nominated and most famous for his work with Darren Aronofsky, has also scored Moon and,...


I really like alternate history stories. They appeal to the history geek buried deep beneath layers of crappy public school education as well as the science fiction geek that's ran the whole Alex show since Star Wars. We cou...


Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is one of those ideas that's "just crazy enough to work." The idea of seeing one of America's most famous presidents go to town on vampires is totally out there, but sounds surprisingly awesom...


I love adorable independent animations. Vampire Gastelbrau is the story of a vampire who loses his tooth in an attempt to enter a house. In order to get it back, he must help a young girl and her grandmother with their chore...


When I saw the first trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, I was all like, "Okay, I see what you did there." But when I saw this second trailer for Timur Bekmambetov's adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book, I was ...


Every post I write about Alexander Aja feels like a desperate plea for the rest of the world recognize is him for the campy, slasher film genius he is. This is the man behind both what should be the seminal remake of The Hill...


"There are three things you find in every vampire story; sex, blood, and death." The Moth Diaries is a sexy, lesbian vampire story set at an all-girls private school about a creepy girl who may or may not be able to turn int...


Jim Jarmusch may be the last person I'd expect to do a vampire movie. Then again, he was also the last person I'd expect to do hitman movies (Ghost Dog, The Limits of Control) or to go fishing for sharks. (If you like oddball...


Byzantium is a movie about an 18th century mother and daughter vampire team who find themselves at loggerheads when the daughter falls in love with a young man dying of leukemia and starts questioning mortality and the nature...


The first two posters for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter are out, and we see the moody, vampire-killingest president sitting deep in thought. He's in the same pose both indoors and outdoors. No, not just the same pose -...


It's a challenge to get angry over something you don't really care about. When your greatest emotion toward a thing is general apathy, then getting angry about it isn't worth your time. So it is a testament to how insanely st...


How many Tommy Wiseau rumors can you handle at once? I'm about to test your limits. Let's do this. I'll start with what I shall term the Vampire Rumor, designated such because of its inclusion of vampires. We've actually hear...


Oh, come on... What the f*ck? Why is it every Tim Burton film has to turn into some kind of perverse drag show for Johnny Depp to parade around in horrible clothes and makeup? Why must the pairing of these two men always equa...


And here's a brand new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. I still have no idea what's going on in this franchise, but know that there will be kinky vampire-on-human sex, a frilly wedding, and some werewol...
