Underworld...has both Vampires and Werewolves, Good film I thought. If you want a horrible film with both try Van Helsing.

The 'Ginger Snaps' stuff is a new take on werewolves.

Martin
Blacula
The Vampire Lovers
Blood for Dracula
The Addiction
Ganja & Hess
Brides of Dracula
Salem's Lot
The Last Man on Earth
Black Sunday

The vampire films of Jean Rollin (Rape of the Vampire/The Nude Vampire/Shiver of the Vampires/Requiem for a Vampire/Lips of Blood/Two Orphan Vampires/Fiancee of Dracula). These vary in quality depending on taste.

'The Company of Wolves' is another werewolf thing worth seeing.

The BBC miniseries Count Dracula (1977) starring Louis Jordan might be of interest, along with John Badham's Dracula (1979) starring Frank Langella.

One I like a lot is Harry Kumel's Daughters of Darkness (1971). Also Vampyres (1974). As with the aforementioned works of Jean Rollin (and Jess Franco (VAMPYROS LESBOS, etc.), these lesbian vampire/Bathory/Carmilla flicks might require that you be a little "adventurous" in your viewing tastes.

For werewolves, one guy to research is Paul Naschy; he did a lot of Waldemar Daninsky werewolf movies.

Re: Can you recommend some vampire and werewolf movies?

For vampires I would suggest 30 Days Of Night. I really enjoyed this movie and have seen it a bunch of times.

Also I would recommend Trick R Treat, that's being released on dvd and blu-ray soon.

John Carpenter's Vampires. And how could you forget the classic, Lost Boys?

Re: Can you recommend some vampire and werewolf movies?

Gotta put some Hammer in there, my favorites are:

vampire:

Dracula
Brides of Dracula
Dracula: Price of Darkness
Dracula Has Riven From the Grave
Countess Dracula / Vampire Lovers
Twins of Evil

werewolf:


The Hound of the Baskervilles
Curse of the Werewolf

The 2002 BBC version of The Hound of the Baskervilles was pretty decent too, I think it was shown here on Masterpiece Theater.

Vampires:
I remember liking GRAVE OF THE VAMPIRES (1974), starring William Smith and Michael Pataki, a lot. Smith plays a half-vampire who goes after his vampire father.

Also, there's a good b&w vampire western called CURSE OF THE UNDEAD (1959), starring Eric Fleming (Clint Eastwood's future "Rawhide" co-star) and Michael Pate. Fleming later drowned after diving into the rapids while filming on location in Peru for an aborted TV project called "High Jungle."

Werewolves:

There's some good WOLF MAN-inspired action featuring a talking werewolf (played by Matt Willis) in RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE (1943), starring Bela Lugosi as a sort of modern-day Dracula in wartime London.

Wolfen

which reminds me I have to rent 'The Howling 2' which is I've heard is so insanely bad, its actually entertaining.

Bava's Planet of Vampires is also worth checking out.

nor is 'Brotherhood of the Wolf' either for that matter, the reveal of 'Wolfen' is noteworthy in that well... they aren't lycanthropes in the traditional sense but
Spoiler:
actual wolves
the film is remarkable in that it's modern tale of supernatural murders set in New York City, with the addition of an amazing brutal ending that has a standout scene of violence that has to be seen to believed. (think 'The Omen')

The most sad-sack, forlorn werewolf ever.

I always liked Embrace of the Vampire....maybe for other reasons.

Re: Can you recommend some vampire and werewolf movies?

A favorite of mine, never gets any love at all, as the lack of mentioning in this thread proves.

La Femme Nikita as a vampire taking out the Italian mobsters. Works for me.
