Do you know of any vampire stories, movies, video games or vampires in other forms of entertainment that aren't popular?

Asked by Berserker (33396points) November 7th, 2010

By not popular, I mean something that isn’t Dracula, Anne Rice, Twilight, Underworld, Castlevania, Kain, St-Germain or any of the other names most people know about. Looking for something obscure and not well known, but still good. Any ideas?

Dusk to Dawn is my favorite vampire film. (but well known)

I know the show True Blood is pretty popular, but I don’t know a lot of people who have read the sookie stackhouse novels which the show is based on…. or maybe they do, but it doesn’t seem to be pushed.

The vampire in Stephen King’s ‘The Night Flier.’ , isn’t quite as hunky as the boys in “Twilight” or “Interview with a Vampire”.

If you jump to about 5:44 in the clip I linked, I think you’ll agree that Night Flier won’t be doing a lot of romantic leads. ;-)

30 Days of Night was pretty good from what I read (The comic, not the movie). I’ve also heard great things about Let the Right One In, but I haven’t seen it yet.

Let the Right One In is pretty good.
Let Me In is the American version they just remade. I haven’t seen it, but it seems to have gotten decent ratings and reviews like the first one.

@Joker94 beat me to it. XD

@Brian1946 Hmm, I’ve read the story it’s based on. I’m up for this movie.

@Vunessuh Let the Right One Is is, indeed, a very extraordinary film. I’ve been avoiding it for ages because I thought it was gonna be something like The Grudge, but I bought a copy for like six bucks, and it’s right up there in my faves. The remake looks like shit though, but I guess I’d better see it before I judge.

Well one that’s worth a watch if only for retro cheezy creeps is Martin. Just in case my link don’t reach you then here you go.

Jim Carrey played in a vampire movie once that was before he was popular it was called Once Bitten.

There’s a pretty recent book called “The Passage” by Justin Cronin that features vampires. They aren’t sparkly vampires. I really liked the book a lot, and it reminded me of Stephen King’s “The Stand.”

@Self_Consuming_Cannibal I loved Once Bitten. Absolutely hilarious.

Joker94's avatar

@Vunessuh I’s sowwy >.< I’ve never actually seen it, my friend praised it up and down, I just haven’t had the time yet :/

Berserker's avatar

@Joker94 DO IT! It rules. ^^

dwisecbus's avatar

yeah let the right one in, the original, is pretty good, very suspenseful

Joker94's avatar

I think I’m gonna! I’ll add that to the list of movies I’ll be watching this week!

Self_Consuming_Cannibal's avatar

@downtide I haven’t gotten a chance to see it yet. I’ve just seen the box for it.

free_fallin's avatar

@Vunessuh @Symbeline I watched Let the Right One In for the first time last week; phenomenal movie. Props to you both for knowing it.

free_fallin's avatar

Nosferatu is a classic and at the top of my list of favorite vampire movies.

Berserker's avatar

@free_fallin I own both the original Nosferatu and the 1979 colour remake. Both are fantastic, but I have to come clean, I really like the colour version better, it’s so artsy and creepy. :)
Also my original version has Type 0 Negative in the background playing at all times…O_o

free_fallin's avatar

@Symbeline Dude. I LOVE TYPE 0 NEGATIVE. Peter Steele went too soon.

Berserker's avatar

Yeah, that sucks. Check out all the commemorative and special editions for box sets and stuff that’s prolly gonna come up very soon. :/ Not a bad thing of course, I’m sure they’ll do the same with Dio, if they haven’t already.
