Halloween approaches and our recent sequel/remake review Fright Night 2 – New Blood with a sensual Jamie Murray in the role of the infamous Elizabeth Bathory inspired us one of our special rankings, in which we have listed our 10 favorite cinematic vampires and for those wondering why there is no female character from the saga of Twilightthe answer is simple, because such a saga with vampires and their mythology has nothing to do.
1. Selene – Kate Beckinsale
Movie: Underworld – Underworld evolution – Underworld – Awakening
The skintight black jumpsuit by Kate Beckinsale has left an indelible mark on the male imagination, an elegant and at the same time breathtaking beauty raised and trained as a lethal werewolf hunter.
2. Santanico Pademonium – Salma Hayek
Movie: From dusk to dawn
The sensual dance on the stage of the Titty Twister made several jaws drop (ours included), for us the “buttery” Salma Hayek remains one of the most fascinating vampire ever to pass on the big screen.
3. Gerri Dandridge/Elizabeth Bathory – Jamie Murray
Movie: Fright Night 2 – New Blood
A real stroke of lightning for the beautiful Jaime Murrayits Gerri Dandridge of the sequel/remake Fright Night 2 – New Blood he climbed our top 10 in the blink of an eye (of course with a bat), debuting in a well-deserved third position.
4. Dracula’s Bride / Monica Bellucci
Movie: Bram Stoker’s Dracula
The entry into the scene of Monica Bellucci “Between the legs” by Keanu Reeves has undoubtedly impressed many, his voluptuous Dracula bride made us dream of her night visit to invite her for a drink… maybe us.
5. Marie / Anne Parillaud
Movie: Love at the last bite
A wren of a woman capable of attracting her prey with a mixture of sensuality and ostentatious innocence; fascinating and lethal like a feline and with a couple of rules: feed exclusively on criminals and no good and…don’t play with food.
6. Regine Dandridge – Julie Carmen
Movie: Vampire Slayer 2
an irrepressible charm and an ambiguous sensuality make Regine a sort of praying mantis that after mating has the habit of devouring its mate, a description that really fits her perfectly.
7. Carmilla – Silvia Colloca
Movie: Lesbian Vampire Killers
An all-Italian beauty, the actress Silvia Colloca (Van Helsing), to portray the legendary Carmilla, the quintessential vampire intent on claiming victims even before Count Dracula. In this comedy-horror she is a vampire queen consumed by a deep hatred of men and a voluptuous love of women, who she vampirizes by turning them into her lovers. Together with the trailer there is also an amazing scene in which the female protagonists of the film are presented, some of which will end up in the clutches of Carmilla (lucky her and lucky them).
Movie: The Queen of the Damned
The nightclub sequence with hypnotic dance and accompanying bloodbath is one of the few good things to be found in the mediocre sequel to “Interview with the Vampire”. Ours also wants to be a tribute to the splendid and talented model and singer Aaliyah that before her tragic and untimely death at the age of 22 in a plane crash, she had had time to play a modern Juliet with Jet Li in the action Romeo must not die.
9. Angie Everhart – Lillith
Movie: Tales from the Crypt: The Brothel of Blood
With a title like “Blood brothel” the fun is certainly guaranteed and when the door comes a crash like Angie Everhart the trap has now sprung and this time it’s your turn to play the part of the mouse.
10. Louise (Nina Hoss), Charlotte (Jennifer Ulrich) and Nora (Anna Fischer)
Movie: We Are The Night (Wir sind die Nacht)
A German vampire-movie all female, modern and rhythmic, but respectful of the canons imposed by the genre. Three young, sensual vampires who love the good life decide to generate a new “sister”, who however will not be able to adapt to the new life or rather … death.
Bonus video – Countess Dracula / Ingrid Pitt
Movie: The house that dripped blood, Vampire lovers And Death goes hand in hand with virgins.
Our personal tribute to the horror queen of Hammer and unforgettable Countess Draculawhich we recall appeared in the 2006 sequel Underworld: Evolution and passed away in London in 2010 at the age of 73.
