Vampires are pure seduction. Let’s face it; there hasn’t been an ugly vampire since Nosferatu. Or maybe Paul Reuben’s vampire in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie. But for the most part, vampires are just hot. We dug through coffins and caves to find the sexiest vampires cinema has to offer you this Halloween season. Sorry ladies, Edward Cullen didn’t make the list – we found better.
Spike - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Frequently called the Sid Vicious of vampires, Spike lives up to that moniker: bleached hair, British accent, sexy snarl, leather jacket, I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude. He’s a bad boy with great bone structure, and when he falls in love, he falls hard.
Santanico Pandemonium - From Dusk Till Dawn
Salma Hayek as a barely dressed exotic dancer with a big snake and fangs. Need we say more?
Miriam, John, and Sarah - The Hunger
One of the most blatantly erotic vampire films this side of a beaded curtain, The Hunger stars David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve as vampire lovers who seduce Susan Sarandon into a threesome of sex and blood.
Danica Talos - Blade: Trinity
You can almost forgive this terrible installment in the Blade series because of original vampire Danica Talos. Parker Posey brought ironic, indie-girl cred to the role. Oh yeah, and she's sexy as hell too.
Angel - Angel
Note that I mention Angel from his own show, not Buffy. When he got his own spin-off, he was less mopey – he cracked jokes, took charge, and kicked ass. That is far sexier than "woe is me" Angel.
Damon - Vampire Diaries
Both Salvatore brothers are damned good looking, but it is the mischievous twinkle in Damon's eye that really gets us. What is it about being the "bad boy" that is so much more attractive than the sweet guy?
Sophie-Anne aka The Vampire Queen - True Blood
Though she only appeared in two episodes, she made a lasting impression. Besides being ridiculous gorgeous in her retro-glamour styling, she has a mouth on her. The Vampire Queen speaks her mind, is in complete control, and is sexually dominant. Talk about the total package.
Eric - True Blood
True Blood is like ground zero for good-looking vamps. Eric and Bill ran a tight race against each other, but in the end, Eric won out. It’s not because he is another “bad boy” vampire. It really comes down to the hair. Bill has terrible, terrible hair. Now Eric’s hair...that is hair you can sink your teeth into.
Dracula’s Bride, Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Dracula had a trio of brides, and they were all quite hot, but I am specifically thinking about Italian beauty Monica Bellucci. More than a decade before The Matrix, she had the small – but very memorable – role as one of Drac’s harem girls.
Louis, Interview with the Vampire
Brad Pitt somehow manages to be really, really hot without being a pretty boy or a douchebag. While Tom Cruise was wussier than ever in this film, Pitt was hot, brooding, and evil all at once.
