Top 5 List: Vampire Comedies with Bite
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Before Sarah Michelle Gellar's Buffy, don't forget there was a 1992 movie that inspired the successful TV series from the mind of Joss Whedon (now the puppetmaster of The Avengers). Kristy Swanson portrays Buffy, the upbeat Valley girl/cheerleader who learns that she's the Chosen One, destined to slay vampires. Rutger Hauer plays Lothos, the lead vampire villain, but Paul Reubens (minus his Pee-wee Herman persona) steals scenes as a vamp henchman, and Luke Perry distracts with his anti-90210 haircut. Hilary Swank, David Arquette and Thomas Jane all have pre-fame roles, and look for uncredited moments with a young Ben Affleck, Ricki Lake and future Buffy regular Seth Green.
