5 vampire movies for when Valentine’s Day bites

Valentine’s Day not shaping up to be a romantic occasion this year? Throw your own Valentine’s Day bites vampire movie marathon!

Cut through the sappy romantic comedy love stories this Valentine’s Day and instead get your fix of bites and blood. Here are our top five recommendations for vampire movies!

The Lost Boys

It’s Kiefer Sutherland, circa 1987! The future Mr. Jack Bauer stars as David, leader of a gang of vampires. Bet you’ll never guess what could be the cause of all the mysterious disappearances in Santa Clara, CA!

Rounding out the cast of this ultimate 80’s flick is the late Corey Haim and pal Corey Feldman. Can’t get enough? There’s a pair of The Lost Boys sequels to look for, too!

From Dusk Till Dawn

The only thing harder than robbing a bank and escaping the FBI proves to be surviving the night in a strip joint infested by vampires. One such sexy vampire in this adults-only flick just so happens to be played by Salma Hayek, who declares that the tatted up George Clooney will become her slave. Not such a bad idea, right?

The cast of this 1996 flick also includes Harvey Keitel, Quentin Tarantino and Juliette Lewis.

Interview with the Vampire

It was 1994 when Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt teamed up as unlikely vampire friends Lestat and Louis. Based on the novel by Anne Rice, viewers follow along as Brad Pitt tells the story of 200 years of a very emo existence.

Keep an eye out for Antonio Banderas, as well as a young Kirsten Dunst, who was nominated at the age of 12 for a Golden Globe for her blood-thirsty, tantrum-prone portrayal.


It’s Romeo and Juliet with bite when vampire Selene (played by Kate Beckinsale) must decide if she will betray her clan for human hottie Michael (Scott Speedman). Grab an extra pack of popcorn — Underworld has two sequels available to watch from home and a fourth film, Underworld: Awakening, in theaters now.


Go authentic with the 1922 silent movie many believe is the most horrifying adaption of Dracula ever. The German film follows vampire Count Orlok, who is portrayed with an animalistic quality that makes Edward Cullen look like a sparkly kitten. Trust us, there’s nothing romantically nauseating about Nosferatu!
