It’s all about the HUNTER today. Yes, I know, as a vampire author it’s a bit traitorous for me to celebrate the hunter but when they’re as FINE as the following, can you really blame me?
Lady Jayne played by Victoria Smurfit in NBC’s Dracula
OK, first let’s talk about this woman’s wardrobe! Not only did she kick major vampire ass AND manage to bed Dracula, she looked damn fierce whilst doing it! I tip my hat to you, Lady Jayne, and state for the record this show should have received a second season. Completely unacceptable that it was cancelled.
Van Helsing played by Hugh Jackman
Yes, yes, I know everyone claims to have hated this movie. Some of them have to be lying. Why? Well, ’tis simple. You have HUGH JACKMAN looking AMAZING in leather with his romance hero hair and you have Kate Beckinsale by his side being her usual breathtaking self. The effects were decent. The plot more than watchable (there are Dracula babies. What more do you need?) I will admit, I did not like the ending, nor did I care for this particular Dracula, but all that aside, I liked Van Helsing A LOT.
Derek Bliss played by Jon Bon Jovi in Vampires Los Muertos
I admit, the cheese factor was high in this movie. The effects questionable. The acting…eh. Do I care? NO. It’s freakin’ JON BON JOVI chasing vampires. Not sure what else I require in life.
It’s all about creatures today! Can you tell I have a thing for human-sized bats?
Bela from Hotel Transylvania 2
As if the Hotel Transylvania movies weren’t perfect enough, they give us this majestic creature in the sequel. I demand a Bela movie!
Marcus from Underworld 2
It makes me wonder if Viktor (the elder from the first movie) also has a bat form….
Marceline the Vampire Queen from Adventure Time
Seeing this for the first time was a “what the heck” moment. LOL
I thought it would be fun to feature some of my favorite vampires in media over the next few days. What better place to start than with my TOP 3 portrayals of male vampires from TV or Film.
# 3 – Kraven of Underworld (portrayed by Shane Brolly)
Yes, yes, I know he’s technically the bad vampire in this film, given his pact with the Lycans and his power hungry ways, BUT I can’t help being fascinated each time he’s on camera. He’s visually perfect as the dark, brooding vampire and it’s a shame he was never given his own origin story film. You just know this guy comes with a heck of a lot of baggage and I’d love to see more of him. 😉
# 2 – Elijah Mikaelson of The Originals (portrayed by Daniel Gillies)
Every move he makes, every word he speaks, every time he shoots his cuffs after tearing out a heart, I swoon. He is perfection w/fangs.
# 1 – Henry Fitzroy of Bloodties (portrayed by Kyle Schmid)
I looooooove Henry! I bemoan the loss of the show daily. No joke. What’s not to love about a vampire who is ALL vampire. He goes out at night. He sleeps with his food. He’s the bastard son of Henry VIII….seriously, my ideal vampire. Nuff said.
