I know there haven’t been that many gay vampire films over the years but at least there are a few… some what decent movies. This does seem to be a niche Netflix is missing out on, but iTunes does have a good selection of gay vampire movies available to rent or buy. Plus there’s all those other mainstream vampire movies too. One bright spot, 1313: Boy Crazies is no longer available on iTunes… it was quite terrible and not worth watching. I am waiting for the just released British gay vampire film Drink Me to hit iTunes, until then it’s available from Amazon (review coming once I’ve seen it).
