My Top Fifteen Vampire Films

Dracula, Vampire, Nosferatu, Bloodsucker, Succubus. There are many names the character goes by but they fit the same character, for the sake of this list I'm gonna use the term Vampire.

So here it is, my list of my fifteen Vampire films (the list is not in a favouritism order):

To see the trailer for each film just click on the title
