Most Ludicrous Premise

I Vant To Suck Your Aviation Fuel Blahd!
A vampire who flies around in his private plane killing airport proprietors. What, were his bat wings getting sore?

Oblivious

It's a Mystery!
Hmmm. There's a mysterious pale-skinned figure in a black cloak who only leaves his plane at night. Something odd about him, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Deus Ex Machina

Vampires Hate Paparazzi -- They Leave a Bad Taste in the Mouth
After killing everybody it's ever been in contact with through the entire movie, the vampire corners the nosy tabloid reporter in a bathroom. But, instead of killing him, it exposes his film and asks him to please stop following it.

Stupidest-Looking Monster

The Night Flier
Big ears, huge mouth, green warty skin. Nice cape, though.
