With the recent release of Dracula: Untold, I thought it would be fun to put a spotlight on 20 of the greatest romantic movie couples – that include…you guessed it: a vampire.
From the popular to the obscure, from the old to the new, I tried to make this list of romantic vampire movie couples pretty versatile from the many vampire movies out there. And while some people argue that vampire popularity is dying, Dracula: Untold proves that it has some bite left in it still. So while vampires may disappear for a while from the forefront, there will always be those of us who appreciate the vampiric genre as it continues to thrive in the shadows.
As for this particular list, many of the relationships (or at least unrequited on one end) chosen are between a vampire and a human, but some are between a vampire and a werewolf or a vampire and another vampire (putting a whole new spin on eternal love). The only type of relationship I didn’t include, were the ones present in a vampire movie where at least one half of the couple (or pairing) wasn’t a vampire. So don’t expect to find Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) or Priest on the list!
This list will be the first in a series of three. The other two lists will focus on romantic vampire couples in Television and romantic vampire couples in Literature. So make sure to Subscribe and stay tuned.
