While Count Dracula may be the king of vampires, people often forget that there are female vampire movies as well. Even as far back as Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula was shown to be in league with a group of female vampires who lived in his castle and made a meal of poor Jonathon Harker.
While Dracula was the first vampire, he's far from the only one. Hundreds, if not thousands, of vampires, have popped up on film and TV and it's no surprise that some of the very best vampire movies are focused on women vampires.
The best female vampire movies are just as fierce as the movies featuring the Count and his cronies. They range from the comically oversexed movies of the 70s, like Lust For A Vampire, to the commanding presence of Aaliyah in Queen of the Damned.
So sleep with a stake by your bed tonight, vote up your favorites and don't forget to add anything that's missing as we look at the greatest female vampire movies!
