Top 10 Vampire Movies

Vampire films of late have been gathering a bad reputation and the genre appears to be waning; whether it be due to poor casting, cheesy effects, or awful storytelling. However, despite Stephenie Meyer’s best efforts, the genre is still alive and seems more popular than ever.
