The who the fuck wants to win Byzantium contest

What the hell is a Byzantium?


What the hell do I win?
Your choice of the DVD or Blu-Ray of Byzantium. This is not for a digital copy. This is for a physical copy.

What the fuck are the rules?
Tell me what your favorite vampire movie is and why. Post it in this thread. Your name will be entered into the drawing to win. I will randomly select a winner sometime this Saturday. This contest is only open to those people with at least 100 posts.

But I live in another shithole besides the USA.
I don't care. I will still ship it to you. You can even live in Antarctica like Arion and I will still ship it to you. You just have to be comfortable enough to give me your address. I promise I won't kill you.

What the hell is wrong with you?
Many things.

Happy Halloween

Nice!

I had to think long and hard on this one. And i'm still not sure i could really pick just one. It's like a 10 way tie for me. (Maybe more) The contenders... Tod Browning's Dracula, the original and 70's remake of Nosferatu, Black Sunday, Vampire Hunter D, Black Sabbath (well, the vamp segment), The Hunger (mostly because of Bowie), The Lost Boys, Cronos... (And probably a dozen other honorable mentions) But i suppose if i had to pull just one out of the bag of greats to top my list, it would be Near Dark! (I believe i just sent you a list of movies with this one on it ;) lol.)

Why? I suppose sentiment and nostalgia might have edged it over by a hair. It was one of the first cult type horror movies that i remember thinking that i just got it. And it was at a time that i was starting to identify myself as a horror fan. Near Dark came early in my fandom development of understanding horror films that had a cult following. My Mother and many of my Uncle's were horror fans and this one was part of my early schooling from them.

It's an amazing movie with an incredible cast. Many of which would become embedded as horror alumni for years to come. Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen and Tim Thomerson are still names that will get me to see a movie even if nothing else about it seems interesting to me. The story was outstanding! This movie clearly marked a turn in the traditional vampire's tale. I mean, a kid vamp! It hadn't been done like this. Certainly it's been done plenty since, though.

Anyhow, that may have been more than you were looking for but you're probably used to my over-long essay sized posts by now. ;)

Thank you for the chance at a horror movie that is way near the top of my to-see list! (It makes me a little ill that it's been compared to Twilight in any capacity, ha!) Uh, and Gemma Arterton! Yes, please. :groucho:

There are a lot of good ones, and I really love Kate Beckinsale as well, especially in those great outfits... But I think I'm going to have to go with Lost Boys. Mostly for the Nostalgia factor, I'm a child of the '80s and it was the first Vampire movie I ever saw. Really had a nice 'cool factor' to it.

I was beaten to it but I must also go with The Lost Boys. I am also a child of the 80s and we watched it over and over and over and over....We quoted the lines, we barked when the dog barked while running away, it was full of teen angst and a great group of actors. That will always be my favorite Vamp movie. Thanks GWAC for the great contest.

Not a lot of interest in Byzantium. I guess the 100 post rule did most people in. One in four chance of winning as it stands.

The Lost Boys is pretty good. It's hard to believe that the same Schumacher did such a good job there and such an awful work with the Batman franchise.

Oh my! That's a lot. Why did you have so much money when you were in college?

Nope. Never seen any of the 3. I keep getting outbid every time a code comes up for it on Listia. The 3 lost boys movies are part of a vampire collection along with the Queen of the damned in a 4 film code. I'll get it eventually.
