Let Me In
it's so good! it's a movie about friendship and bullies and devotion... with all the normal vampire tropes affirmed. my favorite scene is the guy-hiding-in-the-back-seat-scene. really gets your heart beating, cheering for the bad guy!
also, the music is good (they don't write em like that anymore ♫ ).
this movie is a remake of a swedish film (which is based on a book)
What We Do In The Shadows
A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
ahhhhhh... i can't believe i didn't think of this before! it's so obvious that the burqa is a perfect disguise for a vampire! it's such a pulpy movie, you can't call it a horror movie. it's in black and white, which i like (i think colors would be too distracting), but it's not exactly a noir. it's just... it's own genre. also, the music is good (if you like post punk, goth, no wave...)
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
this doesn't really make my "favorites list" but i like this as the alternate history time line. totally unbelievable movie, with totally plausible events. i motion that a person is not fit to be president if they cannot match their intellectual prowess with physical ability. how great would that be? obama would totally win in fisticuffs against other world leaders, amirite? i don't want a president who can't out run possible threats (such as bad guys with knives, kaiju, vampires, other world leaders). but i digress. my point is, Lincoln = brains + brawn
i've only seen the 2004 version, i haven't seen the original '79. i love the mansion. i love the PAINT IT BLACK cover song on the credits. to be honest, i like this because i like the book. i've read the book about a dozen times, even though it's the first book to ever scare me (if you see your dead friend at the window, don't invite them in). i like that everything goes to shit in a matter of days when you live in a small town (and oahu is a speck, on the globe). i like the doctor named Cody (he died a human, he never turned!). strongly advise reading the book at least once in your life! (especially if you plan on getting into the DARK TOWER in the future).
tell me your favorite vampire films in the comments, i will watch all of them (if they are available at the library)!
