I’m starting a new, semi-regular feature on the blog, where I pick a movie that I had added to my by-mail Queue months or years ago, then watch, recap and review it. First up is Priest, which I really wanted to see, but missed in theaters. SPOILERS AHEAD. Read More

In honor of the DVD/Blu-ray release of Twilight: New Moon next week, we’ve asked Heather to opine on why ladies seem to love them some vampires.
Twilight: New Moon releases on 3/20, and rather than talk about Bella and Edward, I’d like to take a look at vampires and just what makes them so darn attractive. Sure there’s the whole eternal youth, forbidden romance, animal magnetism, sense of danger, ultimate bad boy stuff. But I think it’s deeper (read: shallower) than that. It’s all about the coat. No really, hear me out on this. I’m going to rate 10 of the hottest vampires on a Big Billowy Coat scale, a BBC scale if you will. The better the coat, the hotter the vamp.
10) Lestat de Lioncourt (Tom Cruise & Stuart Townsend) — Interview With the Vampire and Queen of the Damned
Cruise’s portrayal of the vampire villain in Interview is probably (deservedly) better known, but Townsend’s Rock Star Vamp is smokin’.
7) Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) — Vampire Diaries
Loses points for having lesser powers because he refuses to drink human blood. However, gains points by being devoted to orphaned teenager, Elena.
6) Severen (Bill Paxton) — Near Dark
Severen is mad, bad and dangerous to know. Adrian Pasdar (as newly made vampire Caleb) may be easier on the eyes, but Severen’s sheer enjoyment of the lifestyle is, well, hot.
5) Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) — Vampire Diaries
Isn’t it always the rule that the badder brother is the hotter brother?
3) David (Kiefer Sutherland) — The Lost Boys
You know you’re getting to the awesome vampires when they only have one name. Smirky, sarcastic and smoking hot, David practically invented the big billowy coat.
1) Spike (James Marsters) — Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel: The Series
Sure we could quibble about whether Spike or Angel belongs in this spot. In defense of my position, I’d like to point out that Spike got his leather trench from the second slayer he killed.
