John Carpenter’s Vampires (1998)

John Carpenter’s Vampires is one of the better recent vampire movies that actually takes the effort to be a vampire movie, and not an action film disguised as a vampire movie. James Woods plays the role of the main protagonist, a vampire hunter who is obsessed with wiping out vampires with his team after he witnessed his parents murdered by vampires when he as a child.

He discovers that a group of vampires are searching for a powerful doom for mankind. The Vatican then secretly enlists a team of vampire-hunters, led by Jack Crow, to hunt down and destroy the vampires before they find a crucifix that would give them the power to walk in the day.

After destroying a nest of vampires, Valek, the vampire master, comes after Jack and his team, leading to a fast paced action based movie that still focuses mostly on vampires against the human vampire hunter. A great action paced film that is mostly action based, but definitely has its moments of out right terror.
