Guest Post: My Favorite Vampire Books/Movie

A huge thank you for having me on Better Read Than Dead! As a lot of my friends already know I LOVE vampires. I really don’t get hung up on whether they sparkle (still not sure why it bothers people so much considering vamps aren’t real) or don’t burn in the sunlight. I just really love a good vampire tale. I’ve read a ton of vampire books (we could be here all day talking about that) but I also have some vampire films I love too. Here are my favorite ones!

This movie was one of the first vampire movies I ever saw. I loved how dark and gothic this telling was. While I felt for Louis, I soon grew tired of his moping around about what actually seems like a petty kick butt life. Lestate wasn’t always the best vampire but I loved his aristocratic nature (I always seem to root for the bad guy). As I work on my own vampire series Soul Sisters, Interview with a Vampire is still one of my biggest inspirations. I’ve watched this movie a million times and it never gets old.

I really don’t pay attention to the negativity surrounding the Twilight saga. It seems like recently it has become the popular thing to hate Twilight, well I’m not hopping on the band wagon. I love the Twilight (books & movies) and ignore negativity about it. I loved how Stephanie Meyers regenerated the vampire world. It makes me laugh when people say “vampires don’t sparkle!” They’re not even real so I guess they can do just about anything. I love it because it is a wonderful love story with some really cool twists. The movie & books also got me reading and writing again so I’ll always appreciate the book and movie for that.

Fright Night movie. The original movie was great but this one gave it a more serious edge. The special effects were awesome. A lot of the characters were relatable and fun.  Did I mention Colin Farrell was totally hot in it? I wish this movie would have gotten more play as I think it was extremely well done.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is my new favorite vampire film and I was so sad more people didn’t get it. It was so ridiculous it was amazing. I pre-ordered 3D tickets and it was totally worth the money. I mean blood and vampires in my face? Yes please! I read the book and fell in love with it right away. No, you’re never expected to take it seriously. Once you accept that the rest is nail biting suspense and vampire fun. Even if you don’t pay the steep movie ticket price to see it (in 3D it is amazing though), I really recommend you watch it on DVD. This history/fiction mash up is smartly woven together and unforgettable.

So there you have it, these are the vampire films I could easily watch again and again! What are some vampire films you can’t get enough of? ***Leave a comment answering this question to enter a giveaway for an e-book of Soul Sisters.***
