Does anyone have a list of movies/books/comics/etc. that could provide inspiration for running a Nightbane game?

Someone referred a movie on Facebook. Can't remember the movie. Had a similar premise of the RPG.

A dedicated list? No. I only ever compiled one for inspirational music (years and years ago). However, pretty much anything with a horror/urban fantasy or dark superhero vibe to it tends to hit at least some of the notes. Stuff like Ghostrider, The Crow, Hellraiser, Dark City, Daywatch/Nightwatch, Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Constantine, Legion, Boogeyman, Dog Soldiers, American Werewolf in London/Paris, Silent Hill, John Carpenter's Vampires, etc. Even more sci-fi focused properties like X-files, They Live, and the Matrix Trilogy get at the whole "war in the shadows" and "secret invasion" concepts. You might try Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series and various King and Koontz novels (Twilight Eyes being one of my all-time favorites). None of them quite capture everything that Nightbane is, though, which is one of the reasons I love writing it.

Man that's a cool list. I love Nightvane and a great story of changing back and forth.

Daywatch / Nightwatch is one cool setting, and in fact i would also add Everlasting rpg to this list; which fits the bill.
The Reverie being very similar to the Gloom in DW / NW books.

In fact I would also add Doctor Who, particularly the Family Blood episode where the Doctor traps one of the family in the corner of every mirror.
EDIT: Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel.

Transformers, Max Payne, Mad Max, Alien, Mortal Engines, Pacific Rim, Planet of the Apes (insert any monster), Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow, Hunger Games, 12 Monkeys, Avatar, Star Wars, Dredd, Sharknado, Blade Runner, Escape from New York, and Red Dawn

Some of those are more Rifts-centric, but I got caught up in the moment.
