Classic Vampire Films that Influenced the “Twilight” SeriesComments Off

When you are thinking about Twilight and the way it has changed an entire generation’s view of vampires, it is important to remember that it does not stand alone. As a matter of fact, the Twilight movie is only the most recent in a line of attractive vampire movies, and whether you are simply curious about where your favorite movie came from or you just love those bloodsuckers, there are a few that you need to take a look at.

First, consider Interview With the Vampire. This ninties movie was listed as horror, rather than romance, but with Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise playing two vampires in a deteriorating relationship, you cannot deny that the attraction level is very high.

Another fantastic movie that influenced the genre was Lost Boys, where Kiefer Sutherland played a punky vampire with magical powers. Though this movie was pure schlock comedy, there are many people who find its energy irresistible.

Finally, there’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula, staring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves. This movie brought the vampire back to modern attention in a big way, and the movie itself drips with a lot of the original work’s often-overlooked sensuality.
