<P itxtvisited="1">Let the right one in looks very good and your right that most americans won't see it because it's foreign. And unfortunatelly this is the type of film that hollywood studios see as "Product" and remake it with an altered script, awful acting, and a bad director all in the name of money. I hope this doesn't happen but... I said it already so it will. </P>

I'll repeat it one more time, Near Dark is awesome and was my favorite vampire film when it came out. It's a reunion of part of the cast from Aliens.  Had to go to e-bay and buy a used copy cause they wouldn't put it out, finally it did get a dvd treatment, at least 2 actually.

Vampire Hunter D and its sequel are both worth an honorary mention at least. I hate most anime but found these really entertaining, especially the sequel.

Let me second darkheart on JC's Vampires and Fright Night. Both care great cult classics.

Anyway thanks for the list, I'll try to catch some of these that I haven't seen. Normally I'd stay as far as possible to anything foreign but based on your strong recommendation I may check out Let the Right One In once it's available on dvd

Was that Nathan Petrelli in Near Dark?  Woulda thought that'd be mentioned in an article on a genre site like Mania, haha.

"Wolfman's got nards!" "Creature stole my Twinkie!" "Scary German guy is bitchin'!"

The Monster Squad is a classic. I just watched it the other day.

what, no Fright Night?  The master will surely kill you for this.

I have got to agree with avidfan. Omitting Fright Night is unacceptable.  Chris Sarandon was one the best contemporary vampires to grace the screen.  Roddy McDowall gave one of the best performances of his career. I am also a fan of John Badham's Dracula (1979).  I thought it was highly underrated when it came out.
