List RulesVote up the most evil vamps in the 'Blade' franchise.

Before Marvel movies dominated the mainstream, there was Blade. Released in 1998, Blade, following the adventures of the eponymous vampire hunter, was one of the first R-rated comic book movies and helped pave the way for later Marvel hits to come. Blade's vampire-slaying exploits were also chronicled in a couple of sequels of varying quality.

Originally appearing in Tomb of Dracula all the way back in 1973, Blade made his big-screen debut played by Wesley Snipes, who absolutely made the character his own. Over the course of three films, Snipes's Blade ran up against plenty of vampires. In the first film, he attempted to stop the villainous Deacon Frost from unleashing a vampire god that would turn all humans into vampires. In Blade II, directed by Guillermo del Toro, he was forced to team up with the vampires who had been hunting him in order to stop a new species of bloodsucker, the nearly invincible Reapers. Finally, in Blade: Trinity, Blade found himself confronting the granddaddy of all vampires himself, none other than Dracula, with the help of some new allies calling themselves the Nightstalkers.

But of all those vampires, which are the most evil, the most sinister, the most vicious? Now's your chance to vote for the most bloodthirsty vampires in the Blade franchise.

    One of the few returning faces from Blade, actor Matt Schulze, who played Chupa, had previously played the vampire Crease in the original Blade. If you don't remember Crease, he was the one whose hand got destroyed when he picked up Blade's sword. In Blade II, Chupa is a member of the Bloodpack and a close ally to Reinhardt.

    First Appearance: Blade II (2002)

    Most Villainous Act: In the midst of the hunt for Reapers, Chupa opts to take a break from the action to betray Whistler and beat him to death in the sewers.

    How He Bit The Dust: While Chupa is pounding on Whistler, however, his target has set a trap. Activating one of the spray cans of Reaper pheromones, Whistler attracts the Reapers to their location, where they fall upon Chupa en masse and drag him down.

    Lighthammer

    Basketball player, boxer, and model, British actor Daz Crawford is a big guy. And as Lighthammer in Blade II, he mostly plays the strong, silent type, sporting facial tattoos and carrying a really big sledgehammer.

    First Appearance: Blade II (2002)

    Most Villainous Act: While Lighthammer wields an extremely intimidating hammer, his most villainous act is one of omission. When he is bitten by one of the Reapers, he keeps that fact from his fellow Bloodpack teammates, including his lover Verlaine.

    How He Bit The Dust: After Lighthammer turns in the sewers, Verlaine takes him out with an act of self-sacrifice, climbing up a ladder and pushing aside a manhole cover to let sunlight come flooding in, frying both of them.

    'Pac-Man'

    Jarko Grimwood's pet Pomeranian turns out to be a vampire pooch named Pac-Man with a Reaper-like split mouth that the vampires genetically engineered.

    First Appearance: Blade: Trinity (2004)

    Most Villainous Act: When Ryan Reynolds's Hannibal King is making his escape from the vampires, Pac-Man leads a pair of genetically engineered Rottweilers (with similarly split mouths) to charge him. This results in the dog's ignoble end, however...

    How He Bit The Dust: While pursuing King, the dogs manage to run off a ledge and plunge many, many stories to the street below. While it's unclear if the canines survive the fall, it certainly doesn't sound great for them.

    Jarko Grimwood

    Photo: Blade: Trinity / New Line Cinema

    Played by wrestler Paul Levesque - better known by his nom de guerre, Triple H - Jarko Grimwood is the muscle of Danica Talos's operation in Blade: Trinity.

    First Appearance: Blade: Trinity (2004)

    Most Villainous Act: Jarko Grimwood has silver fangs, so you know he's tough. Except... he isn't actually all that tough. In fact, when things get a little hairy, he tends to turn tail and run. That said, his most evil act is probably beating the ever-living crap out of Hannibal King when he finds out King has slain his dog - although making a vampire Pomeranian might be construed as a pretty evil act on its own.

    How He Bit The Dust: After a knock-down, drag-out between Jarko Grimwood and Hannibal King, Grimwood ultimately bites it (literally) when King shoves a UV round into Grimwood's mouth and forces him to bite down, causing his metal fangs to puncture the shell, which fries him.
