I love so many of those movies

But I went with Fright Night because I think it had the strongest effect on me.
I was in elementary school the first time I saw it and it got me obsessed with vampires for a while. I made my dad make me a vampire slaying kit, so he made me a big wooden cross, some stakes, and a mallet.
I had a vintage black medical bag I found at a garage sale so I put my anti-vampire memorabilia in there along with a small bottle of holy water and would carry it around with me everywhere.
I was a weird-ass

The fact that Fright Night isn't in the top 3 has caused me to lose hop for this site.

Let the Right One In. The two leads were perfect, and were very adult in their chemistry. But there are lots that I would also consider.

Tough to pick one, but Cronos is a fantastic film and a genuinely cool take on vampirism.

Bram Stoker's Dracula. Not only did Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins own the shit out of this movie, but it is the only vampire movie where the vampire truly felt like a terrifying god-like monster. Coppola said that he wanted odd things to happen whenever Dracula was near to signify that his presence warped reality. That was a nice touch of Lovecraft creepiness, and it really made the vampire feel like so much more than just a superhuman who drank blood.

Also, this film has one of the most

Also, this film has one of the most epic horror soundtracks out there.

Near Dark gets love!!!

Amazing film from the 80's. Bill Baxton was vicious as a southern fried vampire.

Without a doubt "Near Dark"! It's a haunting and fascinating film! Bigelow's best!

I love how The Lost Boys is in the lead. That movie was filmed here in my hometown of Santa Cruz. I actually live right across the street from The Boardwalk that's featured in the movie. I frequent the comic book shop where The Frog Brothers work at, and is actually called Atlantis Fantasyworld. The location to the comic book shop (as well as several other business's within town) has been changed, due to the devastating 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake [link]

The latest episode of Spooked is titled "Have You Seen Lost Boys?" and here's the link:
[link]

I think you'll like it, but you should probably start with the first episode "Take Back The Night", here's the link for that:

Not trying to be a troll, I geniunely think you'll like this and it's coincidental that you talked about where Lost Boys was filmed and this show refers to it as well.

Spooked is my favorite vampire web series!

We all know those on the list, but have you seen this new web series Spooked? Check it out at SpookedTheShow.com, it doesn't disappoint, unlike that remake of Fright Night. Movie wise, I got to go with Near Dark or Let the Right One In, depending on if you want high drama or Bill Paxton.

Dracula (Spanish Version) (1931)

I love the Bela Lugosi version of Dracula, but also enjoyed the Spanish Version as well, most notably the use of the camerawork. Some scenes from the Lugosi version would be a still shot, whereas the Spanish version would take those scenes and pan the camera through the scene creating a much more effective feeling to the film.

From Rotten Tomatoes [link]

From Rotten Tomatoes [link]
"Filmed simultaneously (and on the same sets) as the Bela Lugosi version of Dracula, this Spanish-language version is in many ways an improvement upon the original. Whereas the English-language version (directed by Tod Browning), is stylish and atmospheric only in its first two reels, the Spanish Dracula sustains its eeriness throughout. The latter version is also more effective in emphasizing the eroticism inherent in the Stoker novel; the leading ladies, notably Lupita Tovar, are dressed (or undressed) far more provocatively than their American counterparts, while their facial expressions upon making contact with the charismatic Dracula betray a carnal yearning that the American actresses only hinted at. Moreover, the Spanish Dracula fills in several continuity gaps in the American film, especially in its detailing of the Count's journey from Transylvania to England."

Also, what's up with mentioning Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, but not mentioning the original Vampire Hunter D (which is a far superior movie).

Fright Night

Some good choices there. But, it was a 2 horse race for me. My absolute childhood favorite vampire flick "Fright Night" or the late 90's bad ass James Woods one "John Carpenter's Vampires." In the end "Fright Night" is the tops!

"Bram Stoker's Dracula" for me. Gary Oldman was simply amazing in the role, as was Anthony Hopkins as Van Helsing. It was incredibly atmospheric and the sets were visually breathtaking. To this day, I find the soundtrack by Wojciech Kilar one of the most haunting soundtracks ever made. And we even get to see a young Monica Bellucci topless.

Mr. King wins out:

I like Tobe Hooper's version of Salem's Lot, and I really liked The Night Flier. Near Dark is definitely in the discussion, as well.

Too many

I love Blade I & II, From Dusk Till Dawn, Buffy, Interview with a Vampire, Fright Night (both '85 & '11) and to a lesser extent Underworld. Choosing just one I can't do.

A lot of good vampire flicks out there, but I had to go with Blade. I like the style and Snipes as Blade is fantastic. Probably his best character.

Does Ed Wood count?

If not, I gotta go with Horror of Dracula. With Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Michael Gough. Lee is suave and downright terrifying. No one has played Van Helsing better than Cushing...cool, steely-eyed, and three steps ahead. All with that trademark Hammer flair for color and smart, fresh scares. I'd happily put 'Horror of Dracula' up there with 'Trick 'r' Treat' and 'Halloween' as the three movies best watched come October 31.
