9 Vampire Hunters Not Named "Abraham"

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Opening this weekend is the bizarrely titled but conceptually interesting "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". His notoriety instantaneously makes the 16th President of the United States the most famous vampire slayer amongst his peers. Though it remains to be seen whether or not the film itself can live up to some of the other impressive slayers, killers and purifiers in the realm of cinema vampire lore. So in case Mr. Lincoln doesn't satisfy your bloodlust, here are 9 Essential Vampire Hunter Films.

Netflix Instant: "The Impaler" will leave you scratching your head

It's a documentary... about a "vampire"... running for Governor of Minnesota. Probably the one place where a guy like that would have a chance. Watch the layers of the onion peel back on this fascinating study in self delusion.

Vampire's Kiss (REVIEW)

I clearly remember the first time I saw the Nicolas Cage remake of “The Wicker Man”. I was at my neighbor’s place and had convinced him to give it a shot because I had heard that it was one of the worst movies ever made. We weren’t disappointed. We were treated to some of the worst over-acting ever committed to film, a plot so absurd it involved Nicolas Cage punching out an elderly woman while dressed up as a bear and the only death scene I’ve ever seen that involved an Abraham Lincoln-esque beard of bees. Sure, it was abjectly terrible, but my God was it funny. Problem is, it hooked me.

Vampire Mob - A Web TV Series

I love indie movies and indie TV. Yes, like anything, there's a huge amount of stinkers, but it's not unusual to find a great story. I consider indie productions to be a proverbial lifeboat in the sea of crap that is big budget, soul less remakes, reboots and re-imaginings. The best part, however, is when you stumble on something that's just a gem, like I did with Vampire Mob. Like most productions of this nature, the biggest obstacle is getting your project noticed - an absolute travesty, if you ask me.

Prowl (REVIEW)

Films based upon original ideas are pretty hard to come across today. Look at any theater marquee on the street and I can guarantee that you’ll see three things; remakes of classic films from decades past (do we really need another “Conan the Barbarian”?), films that shamelessly steal ideas from far superior films (case in point: “The Roommate”) and an endless slew of uninspired sequels (there’s a fourth “Scream” movie now?).
