If The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has you yearning for more blood, here's a list of five other vampire movies to check out this holiday weekend.

5other than Eclipse vampire moviesHere are five to consider:
From Dusk Till Dawn
Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's camptastic 1996 vampire flick offers one wild and gory ride. George Clooney and Tarantino star as bank robbers who take an ex-minister and his two children hostage and run for the border. When the brothers hit up a Mexican biker bar for a meet up, however, they get more than they ordered!
Love at First Bite
This 1979 disco-era classic stars George Hamilton as Count Vladimir Dracula and goes down as one of the funniest vampire spoofs of all time. (Jim Carrey's Once Bitten is a close second.)
In Love at First Bite, our suave vamp hero is booted from Transylvania and moves to the bright lights of New York City, where he runs into some serious culture shock and a chance at undying love with a hotshot model, played by Susan Saint James. Things get messy when the Count's competition for Cindy turns out to be a Van Helsing (Richard Benjamin) and the laughs just don't stop.
The Lost Boys
Does this 1987 movie even need introduction? The rocking, beautifully shot vampire flick stars Corey Feldman, the late Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric and pairs teen angst with vampire seduction.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
This 1992 high school vamp flick was written by Joss Whedon and was such a hit that it spawned the Buffy series, but it offers a very different charm than the TV show.
Kristy Swanson stars as a blonde cheerleader forced to come into her own and take on the family trade of kicking vampire butt. With Donald Sutherland's guidance, she takes on Rutger Hauer, Paul Reubens and some crazy teen vampires in showdowns that warrant both laughs and screams, while also finding romance with Luke Perry.
This 1922 super scary silent movie from Germany is the Dracula that started them all. The first ever take on Bram Stoker's novel stars Max Schreck as a ridiculously creepy Count Orlok. It offers none of the camp, suavity or romance we've come to associate with vampire flicks. Instead, it's said to be the scariest one out there, so expect to squirm, cringe and maybe even cover your eyes.
