 Vanessa Morgans 'BEST VAMPIRE MOVIES'

There's an exciting new vampire story being released this month. It's a screenplay by Vanessa Morgan called A GOOD MAN (also available in French as Un homme bien) - a fun vampire tale that turns the whole vampire myth completely on its head and turns it into something highly original. The movie based on the screenplay is now in pre-production with Radowski Films. Let's talk about some of Vanessa Morgan's favorite vampire movies to celebrate the release of A GOOD MAN.

Salem's Lot (1979)

Salem's Lot - population 1319 - and growing eerier by the moment. Since an ominous outsider has moved into this sleepy New England town, the dead walk the streets of Salem's Lot. Vampires have never gotten any creepier than this. In 1987 followed the disappointing sequel A Return To Salem's Lot and in 2004 an intriguing mini-series starring Robe Lowe, Donald Sutherland and Rutger Hauer.

Fright Night (1985) 

A teenager discovers that his next-door neighbor is a vampire. The sequel from 1988 is well-worth it as well. From director Tom Holland (Child's Play).

The Hunger (1983)

The lovers of the vampire Miriam (Catherine Deneuve) don't age as long as she is in love with them. When her current lover, John (David Bowie), starts to age rapidly, he understands that Miriam has fallen in love with someone else and that he has no more than a couple of days to live. He tries to win back the love of his lover while seeking help from a doctor (Susan Sarandon) who researches premature aging.

Karmina (1996) 

In this rare, but funny vampire movie from Quebec, the vampire Karmina temporarily transforms into a human after drinking from a special potion. Under the effects of the potion, Karmina falls in love with one of them.

Eternal Blood (Sangre Eterna) (2002) 

A journalism student meets a group of kids that play a role-playing game called Eternal Blood. Soon all the members start to turn into vampires. This *Brazilian* horror movie from Jorge Olguín has some of the coolest vampires in history.

The Wisdom Of Crocodiles (1998) 

Just before becoming famous, Jude Law played a vampire in this small British movie about a vampire who is searching for the ideal woman to redeem him.

About A Good Man 

Loved Dexter and American Psycho? Then you will love A Good Man.

Louis Caron is a good man – vegetarian, he feeds the homeless, takes care of animals and is concerned with the ecological future of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he's a vampire - and local detective Taglioni is becoming increasingly suspicious. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about.
