22. Vampire Journals (1997 Video)

I'm pretty sure the main vampire in this helped inspire the Setites.
24. Blood & Donuts (1995)

With a vampire protagonist in the Anne Rice tradition it's very close to what a Cainite is like.
25. We Are the Night (2010)

This vampire music video really brings the V:tM vibe.
27. Blade: The Series (2006)
TV-14 | 60 min | Action, Drama, Fantasy

Except for the vampires being science based instead of supernatural it's remarkably close to V:tM, even more so than the movies.
28. 30 Days of Night: Dark Days (2010 Video)
R | 92 min | Horror, Thriller
After surviving the incidents in Barrow, Alaska, Stella Oleson relocates to Los Angeles, where she intentionally attracts the attention of the local vampire population in order to avenge the death of her husband, Eben.
I suppose the original film already was a bit Sabbatish. But the sequel strays into V:tM territory even more so.
