Vampire Movies are Hot at the Box Office

The popularity of the Twilight movie series lately has sparked a renewed interest in all things vampire.  Even if you are not a fan of the book or movie series, you can’t miss them all over television and in the news.  It began as a figment of imagination many years ago, and has now become a movie genre with fans all over the world.

Vampire legends have been around for years all around the world.  Vampires are said to be witches, ghosts, or evil spirits who live by drinking human blood.  It is believed that the origin of this myth came from the innate fear of the unknown that we all have in the corners of our minds.  Most cultures have vampire legends of some sort and Hollywood has banked on the interest of the scary subject.

Dracula is probably the best known and most represented vampire of all time.  In 1931, Bela Lugosi’s portrayal of Dracula set the stage for vampire movies for years to come.  Over the years, many variations of the Dracula story have been written in books and filmed time after time for  television and movies.

Although Dracula is more recognized, the film Nosferatu, produced in 1922, is more likely the origin of all vampire related movies.  A silent movie starring Max Schreck, it was an unlicensed German version of Braum Stoker’s novel, a book that has been published in more than one hundred fifty versions over the years.  This film usually makes the top-ten list of most experts in the vampire movie industry.

Although there is some variety among vampire movies these days, some of the basic elements are the same.  Of course, the vampire is usually the dreaded main character.  All vampires need a good vampire hunter to create a story as well.  According to the legends, it is commonly seen that vampires can only be killed by a wooden stake through their hearts, can’t go out in the sunlight, have no reflection and are afraid of holy water and crucifixes.

Vampire movies today have a much wider audience than those of the past.  Movies such as The Lost Boys, Braum Stoker’s Dracula, Blade and Van Helsing have wooed audiences who may not have been interested in the vampire legend before.  Combine a few good looking actors, and a tragic love story and you’ve got a good fit for many movie goers worldwide.

While the basic premise of the vampire in these movies is the same, filmmakers worldwide are striving to give the public a unique twist on the classic tale.  In fact, it has been said that Dracula with more than 150 films made about him, has been the subject of more movies than any other fictional character.  Upcoming films such as sequels in the Twilight series, and others like Midnight Son, will continue to expand the vampire film genre.   With so many vampire movies out there, audiences are likely to find just the right one for them.

Recommended Movies to Watch

Watching movies is a good stress reliever. This is one way of escaping from stressful reality to laugh, cry and emote with virtual friends on the boob tube. But of course, watching movie experience could never be good unless you are watching the right movie to suit your mood. I recommend watching new movies. Although there are a lot of good old movies, I suggest you must watch new movies so you will know the trend in the movie industry nowadays.
