It’s harder than ever to find something to watch that will keep you entertained. Lucky for us, Hollywood has been churning out vampire movies since 1922’s Nosferatu. These days, vampire movies have taken many different forms. They range from campy and cheesy to downright creepy. Here are the best vampire movies to sink your teeth into.

Nosferatu (1922)

The granddaddy of them all. This silent German film is a true classic. Director F.W. Murnau took Bram Stoker’s classic novel, Dracula and turned it into a horror masterpiece filled with shadows and light that still holds up today. It may be over ninety years old, but Nosferatu is still one of the most iconic vampire movies of all time.

Dracula (1931)

While Nosferatu is a classic, it’s the 1931 film version of Bram Stocker’s Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi, that cemented the vampire legacy. Lugosi’s performance as the dark prince of vampirism is iconic and one of the most memorable performances of all time. The film also includes classic horror sequences that still hold up today.

The Lost Boys (1987)

With a wickedly sharp script and an iconic soundtrack, The Lost Boys remains one of the most beloved vampire movies of all time. Starring Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, and Corey Haim, the film has a ‘80s feel that’s impossible to replicate. It’s campy and stylish and features some truly impressive special effects.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992)

Francis Ford Coppola’s take on Bram Stoker’s Dracula strays far from the source material, with a host of new characters and plotlines. Starring Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, and Winona Ryder, the film is a visual feast. Coppola’s use of extraordinary sets and high-end special effects create a unique and unforgettable experience.

Interview with the Vampire (1994)

Based on Anne Rice’s novel, this movie follows two vampire immortals, Louis, played by Brad Pitt and Lestat, Tom Cruise, as they struggle with their existence and the human world. This intense character study is not the typical vampire movie, which makes it a must-see for those looking for something different.

Blade (1998)

If you’re looking for an action-packed vampire flick, you can’t go wrong with Blade. Starring Wesley Snipes, this comic book adaptation features tight plot twists, lots of action, and a fight between the forces of good and evil. Blade’s legacy continues with the 2019 film, Blade II.

Let The Right One In (2008)

This is the movie that put Swedish director Tomas Alfredson on the map. This chilling tale follows Oskar and Eli, a vampire and her human companion, as they form an unlikely bond. While the movie has a few scary moments, its mostly a heartbreaking look at two people searching for a connection.

What We Do In The Shadows (2014)

Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s horror/comedy is a darkly humorous take on vampire tropes. It follows the documentary-style filming of a group of vampires as they attempt to navigate modern life. If you need a good laugh, this is definitely the way to go.

Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is not your traditional vampire flick. In fact, it’s not even a horror movie. Starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, this arthouse drama follows centuries-old vampires as they navigate a world that appears to be out of sync with their long lives.

Underworld (2003)

This action-packed film follows the centuries-old war between vampires and werewolves. Starring Kate Beckinsale and Scott Speedman, Underworld is full of intense fight sequences and a gripping script. If you’re looking for a lot of action, this is the way to go.

For the movie fan looking for a good vampire flick, you have no shortage of options. From the campy fun of The Lost Boys to the arthouse drama of Only Lovers Left Alive, there’s something for everyone.
