DRACULA AND HIS BRIDES

VAMPIRES, BLOOD SUCKERS, WALKERS OF THE NIGHT (THE UNDEAD) WEATHER YOU FEAR THEM OR LOVE THEM, THEY WILL ALWAYS BE PART OF OUR DARKEST FEARS. FROM THE VERY FIRST VAMPIRE MOVIE TO THE NEWEST , WE ARE FASCINATED OR FEAR THESE ''CREATURES OF THE NIGHT''

BELA LUGOSI IN 1931 PLAYING ''COUNT DRACULA''
BELA LUGOSI IN 1931 PLAYING ''COUNT DRACULA''

THIS WAS THE FIRST MOVIE I EVER HEARD OF THAT WAS OLDER THAN THE ONES THAT I KNEW ABOUT DURING MY GENERATION. BELA LUGOSI PUT FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF WOMEN EVERYWHERE WHO KEPT THEIR WINDOWS OPEN AT NIGHT. AND MOVIEGOERS GOT A TASTE OF THE 1930S VAMPIRE GENRE, WHICH WAS ''THE SILENT MOVIE'' ERA. THEY DID NOT HAVE THE SPECIAL EFFECTS TO MAKE VAMPIRES GLITTERY OR COLORFUL. BUT EVEN STILL THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME, AND I'D BE MORE SCARED OF RUNNING INTO BELA LUGOSI AT NIGHT AS COUNT DRACULA ,THEN I WOULD ''CARLISLE CULLEN'' FROM TWILIGHT. LOL SO DO CHECK IT OUT.

CHRISTOPHER LEE IN ''THE HORROR OF DRACULA'' 1958
CHRISTOPHER LEE IN ''THE HORROR OF DRACULA'' 1958

IN THE 1950S FILMS STARTED COMING OUT MORE IN COLOR, AND SO THE VAMPIRE ERA IN FILMS, PROGRESSED TO MORE GORE, SPECIAL EFFECTS AND MUSIC AND SOUND. WHO CAN EVER FORGET CHRISTOPHER LEE AS ''COUNT DRACULA'' IN THE MOVIE ''THE HORROR OF DRACULA'' ? HE BROUGHT FEAR INTO DARK STORMY NIGHTS AND LONELY DARK ALLEYS WHERE HE WOULD LURK IN THE DARKNESS AWAITING AN UNSUSPECTING VICTIM.

FRANK LANGELLA  AS ''DRACULA'' IN 1979
FRANK LANGELLA AS ''DRACULA'' IN 1979

THE EARLY 80S BROUGHT A DIFFERENT TYPE OF ''VAMPIRE GENRE'' TO THE SCREEN, ONE WHERE THE LEAD ACTOR WAS A HANDSOME,CHARISMATIC, ROMANTIC, DEBONAIR, LADIES MAN! SO IT WAS MORE ABOUT SEDUCTION AND SEX , THEN BLOOD AND VIOLENCE. FRANK LANGELLA HAD WOMEN SWOONING OVER HIM AND HOPING TO GET CLOSE ENOUGH TO HIM. BUT LITTLE DID THEY KNOW THE ACTUAL POWER HE WOULD HAVE ON THEM. AND LITTLE DID THEY SUSPECT THEY WOULD BECOME HIS VICTIMS.

''THE LOST BOYS'' 1987 STARRING COREY HAIM
''THE LOST BOYS'' 1987 STARRING COREY HAIM

AWE! THE 80S MY FAVORITE ERA BROUGHT US HAIR METAL BANDS, MTV, LEG WARMERS, WHAM, MADONNA, BILLY IDOL, AND RONALD REAGAN AS PRESIDENT. ALSO BROUGHT ALONG GREAT HORROR MOVIES! THE LOST BOYS IS A CLASSIC, AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES. A MOM AND TWO TEENAGE BOYS MOVE TO THE SMALL TOWN OF ''SANTA CLARA'' CALIFORNIA WITH THEIR GRANDADDY, THE TOWN HOLDS SOME DARK SECRETS. AND THEIR RUN INS WITH THESE STRANGE, AND VERY CREEPY ''BIKERS'' LEAD THEM TO MANY UNEARTHLY ADVENTURES. ADVENTURES WHICH LATER HAVE DIRE CONSEQUENCES.

''JOHN CARPENTERS'' VAMPIRES 1998
''JOHN CARPENTERS'' VAMPIRES 1998

THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT A GUY AND HIS BUDDIES WHO GO SEARCHING FOR VAMPIRES IN ORDER TO PUT A STAKE THROUGH THEIR HEART, HE IS THE ''VAN HELSING'' OF THE 1990S SO TO SPEAK. HIS REASON FOR HATRED OF VAMPIRES IS A PERSONAL ONE. DON'T WANT TO GIVE SPOILER ALERTS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET. BUT STAY TUNED FOR SOME GORE AND PLENTY OF ACTION.

FRIGHT NIGHT 1980S
FRIGHT NIGHT 1980S
FRIGHT NIGHT 2011
FRIGHT NIGHT 2011

FRIGHT NIGHT 1980 IS ANOTHER ONE OF MY FAVORITE VAMPIRE MOVIES, IT'S ABOUT A MOM AND SON WHO BELIEVE THAT THEIR NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR IS A VAMPIRE, BECAUSE OF HIS UNUSUAL BEHAVIOR. THE 2011 VERSION IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT THEN THE FIRST ONE MORE MODERN I SUPPOSE, ALOT MORE GORE AND SPECIAL EFFECTS. NOT TO MENTION A LEADING ''HOT'' MALE ROLE PLAYED BY COLLIN FARREL. SO CHECK THEM OUT!

THE TWILIGHT SAGA 2008
THE TWILIGHT SAGA 2008

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST TRIBUTE TO MY FAVORITE GLITTERY VAMPIRE EDWARD CULLEN. THIS IS NOT A GORY, VIOLENT VERSION THAT YOU EXPECT LIKE IN THE PRIOR FILMS I TALKED ABOUT. WE LOOK INTO THE LIFE OF BELLA SWAN, A LONELY , TEENAGER WHO SPENDS HER DAYS READING OR WRITING IN HER JOURNAL. SHE MEETS EDWARD AND HER LIFE CHANGES. EDWARD IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL TEENAGER, HE HIDES HIS TRUE IDENTITY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. HE DOESN'T HAVE FANGS, AND HE CAN'T DIE WITH A CRUCIFIX AS CAN FRANK LANGELLA OR CHRISTOPHER LEE IN EARLIER FILMS. HE DOESNT SLEEP IN A COFFIN, AND HE DOESN'T LIKE TO KILL HUMANS. HE IS A SPECIAL KIND OF VAMPIRE, AND ONLY TRUE TWILIGHT FANS WILL UNDERSTAND THAT.
