I'm a huge Vampire fan and I blame my mom for that one. When I was young..I mean really young like 5 years old she had me watching the black and white Dracula with her. Then when I didn't have nightmares and I liked it she would let me stay up on Friday and Saturday nights to watch horror movies with her. I later found out that she let me stay up with her because she was too scared to watch them by herself. LOL So she had me out there for moral support and my love of all things horror was born.
My little brother and older brother also loves to watch Horror movies and when my daughter was born I let her watch horror movies with me and now she loves them as well. My favorite horror movies have Vampires in them...I'm sure I've seen about 99.9% of all vampire movies ever made...even the old black and white ones that were made before I was born and I loved them all.
I recently watched the remake for Fright Night..which just happens to be my favorite vamp movie of all time and the remake was so good. I liked it because you can watch it as a stand alone movie and it doesn't follow the original word for word, which really irritates me in remakes.
Now Werewolf movies are great, they come in a close second for me. I think I've probably watched 98% of all werewolf movies ever made. Yes, I am that much of a horror movie fan. One of my all time favorites is The Howling. The transformation scene where the werewolf starts becoming a werewolf in front of the woman in the room is just so cool. They do close ups of his face bubbling and that grossed me out so much I remember when I got the vcr I would reverse and fast forward a few times so watch and re watch it. lol
There are good movies and bad movies...but if you are a vampire and or werewolf fan do you watch them anyway? I know I do..I have to so I can say it was either good or bad.
