Top 10 Vampire movies & Series

10.- Angel



A spinoff of Buffy the vampire slayer.This follows the accounts of Angel, a vampire that was the most ruthless and vicious of his kind until he was cursed by gypsies and they gave him a soul, now having felt remorse for his evil acts he vows to try and pay his debt to the higher powers and be a champion of light.

Angel is set in 1999  L.A. after he decides to leave Sunny Dale and find his place in the world, he finds a Demon named Doyle that has the power of foresight and sees visions of the future, Doyle saw a Vision of Angel trying to aid the helpless and succumbing into darkness, and so he tries to set him on the right path by following the visions he gets. From then on Doyle helps Angel in defeating Demons and Vampire alike.

On a Side Note: Curious that in the world of darkness the Settings that are set on 1999 are known for being close or at brink of the Gehenna and the week of nightmares was indeed in 1999 when Zapatasura rose from torpor to wreck havoc.

Through the series Angel meets new Allies, some take more important roles in the future like Charles Gunn who is a kind of a rebel that refuses to be pushed around by supernatural beings. and Lorne a Demon that has the ability to see the intentions of people by looking into their souls while they sing.

The Best example of a Brujah Vampire since Blade

This is a great vampire series that climaxed with the arrival of his rival another vampire named Spike. Who died after he helped Buffy save her city, Spike was sent back to aid Angel since like i mentioned the Apocalypse was at hand and they needed all the help they could get.

This T.V series was more serious than its counterpart Buffy the Vampire slayer and it dealt with problems with a bit less of highschool humor than Buffy. In my opinion both series are good but Angel is without a doubt my favorite of them.

  1. I watched a couple episodes of Angel, it was definitely more serious then Buffy and had some interesting characters. The variety of demons also kept things interesting.

  10. Buffy was definitely ahead of the pack, what with the teenage apprehension of vampires. They did it so fucking goood though, Joss Whedon is a genius

  17. My fav vampire's book is Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice. However latter parts (from Queen of the Damned) are crappy.

  21. I'm so glad that you did this in the end!

    I loved Buffy. Buffy more than Angel personally, probably something to do with my gender. I used to collect Buffy memorabilia. I still have the official Buffy magazines, starting from issue #1, from 1998 or whenever it was. When it first came out XD

  22. I heard Buffy is getting a reboot with a new movie so maybe Angel could come back too?
