Vampyr IS really, really, really, really....well, you get the picture...really slow. And, the worst part, you don't get much for hanging in there and watching the whole thing. There's a reason these movies are on this list...they're not very good. If it's a good vampire movie, it usually gets a following and some notice. Habit was ok, but nothing to write home about.

I can't 100 percent vouch for it, but I remember enjoying Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter (1974) more than I had expected when I saw it.  And I originally heard about it through Cinescape (now Mania) back when they published a physical magazine.

 Habit: "Larry Fessenden directs himself in this low budget psychological horror film... and the ferocious shagging begins."

Nice gig.

I've heard of them all but Habit, which looks interesting.

Abel Ferrara's The Addiction is another one that should be better known. It's very creepy, with a great cast. It's never even been out on DVD, except a R2 pan and scan. Also John Landis' Innocent Blood isn't really obscure, but underappreciated.

The 70s Australian movie The Thirst is pretty cool (I can name a couple of other Aussie vampire movies that really shouldn't be tracked down, however).

Ganja & Hess looks interesting, but I haven't seen it.

Captain Kronos -- Vampire Hunter  is one of my favorite Hammer vampire films, but I think it's probably too well-known for this list.  I get the sense when watching it that they were hoping they could make it a franchise (the whole "many different types of vampire" thing, for instance), and kind of wish it had been. 

There's a movie called Cronos out there, written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, that I've sometimes seen called a vampire film, though it's not what I would call your standard vampire film.

I actually got Vampyr when Criterion put it out after reading about it on this site and, well, I'm kind of glad I was able to pay for it using some gift cards I had forgotten I had.  It's not bad, but it's not the sort of thing I'd normally spend my money on.  If you're curious, I'd advise keeping an eye on Turner Classic Movies; they show it every so often, and it will probably pop up again in October.

That Habit movie sounds similar to Nicolas Cage's film Vampire's Kiss, where Cage meets a girl who may or may not be a vampire.
