ampire movies and horror movies are becoming more popular than ever these days, especially ones like the Twilight Saga, which include not only the horror and drama that goes along with the theme of vampires, but interweaving love stories in with the plot, a ploy which has helped to bring in an even larger audience to this genre.
It's been a long time since the original Dracula movies of the 1930's and even the Hammer Films of the 1970's were produced and the vampire genre began to take shape.These are the top 10 highest grossing vampire movies at the box office. Is your favorite Vampire Movie on this list?
This is the third movies in the Twilight Saga series of vampire movies, and like it's predecessors it has outsold them again at the box office.
New Moon, the second of the Twilight Saga movies, built on the strength of the first movie and firmly established it's main characters, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) in the hearts of teenagers everywhere.
The first in the series of the Twilight Saga movies brought Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) from the book to the big screen, and turned a whole new audience onto the cult genre of vampire movies.
Turning the vampire genre on it's side and focusing on the legendary vampire hunter Van Helsing, writer-director Stephen Summers did a great job with the blend of action, horror and comedy with Van Helsing.
With an all star cast (Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater) and introducing Kirsten Dunst, this 1994 interpretation of the book by Anne Rice was one of the movie highlights of the year.
This 1992 remake of the movie of the original vampire book by Bram Stoker stars Gary Oldman as the vampire, Keanu Reeves as Jonathan Harker, Winona Ryder as his fiancee (and the object of the vampire's affections), and Anthony Hopkins as the vampire hunter Van Helsing.
The sequel to Blade, starring Wesley Snipes as a slashing vampire hunter, hit the box office running and easily outsold the original movie.
Blade, starring Wesley Snipes, bought a new twist to the concept of vampire movies. Take the classic idea of vampires, add a touch of gothic Batman, some kung-fu/samurai style action, and director Steven Norrington had a sure winner on his hands.
This sequel to the 2003 hit "Underworld" sees Kate Beckinsale as Selene, the vampire "death dealer" who is now fighting to stop the release of the original "Lycan" werewolf from the prison that has held him for centuries.
This final part of the Blade trilogy stars Wesley Snipes, Jessica Biel and Parker Posey. It was a hit at the box office in it's day, but far surpassed in ticket sales by the more recent romantic vampire movies like the Twilight Saga.
