Which is The Scariest Vampire Movie? + Dead Before Dawn Ch3

Vampire movies are an odd genre. They are categorised as horror, but often, I have to admit, I don't find them frightening, very entertaining, but not frightening. With October on the horizon and the inevitable Halloween celebrations, I began to wonder if there are any really scary vampire movies.

Many of us like a good scare every now and then, don't we?

Of course different things scare different people. :) For me, ghost stories scare the willies out of me, but monster movies, not so much.

I think the best I can do is the ones with the scariest, most dangerous vampires.

Higanjima: Escape From Vampire Island

This is a Japanese vampire movie - so be prepared for subtitles.

The vampires are very vicious and there is lots of blood and fighting.

Some of the peasant vampires are also rather freaky.

Definitely an action packed film for those who like their vampire films on the exciting side.

Dracula's Widow

Now Vanessa - Dracula's widow, is a very nasty, freaky vampire. She is a true monster.

There is nothing soft and gentle about this beast of the night. In one part of the movie she literally does become a beast and there is a whole bloody massacre.

This is a late 80s movie, so all the effects are done with fake blood and makeup, which is so much scarier than all this CGI.

Someone kindly put the massacre scene on Youtube - not for the faint of heart.

From Dusk Till Dawn

Who doesn't like two movies for the price of one? :) The first half of this film is a heist movie, the second half, a vampire film.

Now none of us can deny that these vampires are freaky and a little bit scary. The Titty Twister is a gateway to hell for those who enter it.

The fact that the vampires seem to love the carnage as much as the blood is one thing that makes them so monstrous. The fact that their victims change so quickly as well. One bite and people change sides in minutes. No lying around in a coffin waiting for the next night for these vamps.


Now these are a different sort of vampire and it's not how they look or how violent they are that make them monstrous, it's what they do.

As the name of the movie may suggest, these vamps steal lifeforce. They leave their victims as husks who come back to life and immediately steal the lifeforce from others, turning them back into an imitation of human beings.

Unfortunately they need to feed repeatedly, turning back into living husks if they do not.

This is a vampire come zombie movie and zombies are always freaky.

So please, tell me which vampire movies you think are the scariest.

It's Tuesday which means a new chapter of my FREE novel over at Wattpad.
Dead Before Dawn: The Vampire Curse
Will Max survive dawn or will the vampire infection take over?


  1. I find 'Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter' creepy/freaky, rather than scary. I don't think there is actually a vampire movie I find scary.

    1. I have to agree - I clicked on a link called "16 Vampire Movies that are Actually Scary" and I had to disagree with every one. None are scary :)
