Vampire Movies from Amazon

Thursday, July 1, 2010 at 11:37 pm

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse continues to tear things up at the box office, and even the mighty Snoop Dogg has released a song paying homage to True Blood’s Sookie Stackhouse. In short: the nation has officially went nuts for vampires. That’s why I’ve decided to put together this list of vampire movies from Amazon (plus plenty of TV series). You’ll find a little something for everyone, whether you pull for Edward, Jacob, or just consider yourself a fangbanger.

Ordering from Amazon is a snap, and items will be delivered right to your door via UPS (which means your local postal service can’t screw things up). Their prices are also the best around, and they’ve even been known to outdo the evil empire known as Wal-Mart. Amazon has more vampire movies than you can shake a crucifix at, plus thousands of other titles in various genres.

Twilight (Blu-ray) – The first film in the series, Twilight introduces the brooding Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), recently moved back to her childhood home of Forks, Washington to live with her father. It’s not long before she makes the acquaintance of Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a brooding student who attends school along with his unusually gorgeous brothers and sisters. After he saves her from certain death, Bella becomes fascinated with Edward and learns his secret: he’s a vampire. Thus begins a dangerous romance, something which is further complicated by the appearance of three nomadic vampires who delight in feeding on human beings. Their leader, James (Cam Gigandet), can’t resist Bella’s unique scent, and so Edward and his clan must struggle to keep the mortal girl safe (along with the rest of the population of Forks).

The Twilight Saga: New Moon (Blu-ray) – The second film in the Twilight series, this time we find Bella upset at the prospect of growing old while the immortal Edward stays, well, immortal.

Heartbroken, Bella begins to spend more and more time with Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), a close friend from her childhood who helps ease the pain. But Jacob has problems of his own, and a miscommunication leads Edward to think that his beloved is dead. As a result, he travels to Italy to provoke the ruling council of vampires into killing him, and Bella must race there to stop him.
