Does Near Dark (1987) count?
A vampire move where the 'V-vord' is never said.
Heh, I pretty much loved Near Dark
at once when I saw it. It felt inventive, cool, with a nice mix between the gritty and the punk ironic, the hoary and the modern. And visually it was great (loved the soundtrack too, it really fit the dusky landscape images).
It's a reboot of sorts, of course; they're replanting the vampire myth in a modern-day outback, semi-Western setting. But it felt very good to have the vampire connection implied and shown
but not printed in big block type. With lines like "I hate it when they ain't shaved" after a good bite into somebody's throat it's fairly clear anyway.
On topic, Telefon
(1979, with Charles Bronson as a KGB man "helping" the US spooks in hunting down a runaway Russian agent who sets off sleeper agents with a hypnotic poem by Robert Frost) is popcorn if you'd look a bit closer at the plot but strangely compelling and very entertaining. I've seen it several times on TCM and always enjoy it.
