Top Ten Vampire Films by Extra

Everyone has a top ten list. Fewer people have a top ten movie list. Even fewer have a top ten vampire movie list. Extra just released theirs:
10. Van Helsing (2004)--Decent movie starring Kate Beckinsale and Hugh Jackman as notorious Van Helsing.
9. Dracula (1931)--Original Dracula, how could it not make the list??
8. Twilight (2009)--Unless you were born on a different planet, you have heard of this great film! The Cullens are the model vampire family. Edward Cullen puts every vampire before him to shame while making every girl wish she was Bella.
7. 30 Days of Night (2007)--"They're coming!" film starring Josh Hartnett. This film, which is a horror depiction of vampires, shares the same director as the newest Twilight series film, Eclipse: David Spade.
6. Blade (1998)-- Wesley Snipes plays a vampire hunter in this dark film. I personally enjoyed this movie.
5. Bram Stokers Dracula (1992)--Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, this remake stars Anthony Hopkins, Wynonna Ryder, Keanu Reeves, and Gary Oldman as Dracula.
4. Underworld (2003)--Depicts the war between the vampires and the werewolves. Like Van Helsing, also stars Kate Beckinsale.
3. From Dusk til Dawn (1996)--Screenwriter and actor Quentin Tarantino stars in a thriller about the survival of vampire attack from dusk til dawn.
2. Interview With The Vampire (1994)--Based on the novel by Anne Rice, the closest in my opinion to Twilight due to the drama and love scenes. Also has to do with the main characters being two of the 90s hottest actors, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
1. The Lost Boys (1987)--The first film with both Corey Feldman and the late Corey Haim. After this film, the two young actors went on to star in "The Two Coreys."

In my opinion, this list is a little skewed and is missing some good vampire films such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Kristy Swanson. But like I said, everyone has their own list. What is on yours?
