Movies had started coming into being long decades ago and like them vampire movies also started their being years ago. The first vampire movie that came out was called Nosferatu in 1922 which was made by FW Marnau.

But with every era that has come up since then, every filmmaking country has taken its own spin on the myth of the vampire. Every movie making company and producer starting from Universal Studios’ Dracula” which began with Tod Browning’s Bram Stoker adaptation in 1931, all the way up to Iranian-American director Ana Lily Amirpour’s indie feminist twist “A Girl Walks Alone At Night” in 2014.

While there is a little time for Halloween to come in, there are some vampire movies which you could bing watch through the weekend with your friends and family for a movie marathon. 

1. Let the right one in 

Romance is for anyone including Vampires. Yes, you heard it right, Vampires also deserve all the love that humans get, don’t they?? The romance of vampires entered the big screen with “Twilight” but before that Tomas Alfredson Swedish’s gothic romance by the name Let the right one hit the spot for vampire love suckers.

The story revolves around a 12-year-old boy and a vampire girl who befriends him. The movie is loved for the chemistry of young actors Kare Hedebrant and Lina Leandersson, and it comes very close to generating an erotic tension between its adolescent leads, but never breaks its eerie poetic spell.

The story revolves around the young protagonist’s life and the mystery that emerges from the discovery of his new companion, who becomes an unexpected resource against neighborhood bullies. Alfredson merged a sense of childhood awe with the dread of a darker world just outside the frame. His gradual approach hints at killing the forces while leaving just enough up to the imagination of the viewer to fill in the gaps. He has also displayed an extraordinary ability to use suggestive details about the nature of the vampire in addition to the contrast between her morbid powers and the face of an innocent child to  maintain a horrific foundation thick with possibilities.

2.The Hunger 

Let’s go back into the 90’s and dig up about the popular vampire movie of the time which goes by the name The Hunger by Tony Scott. The movie came out in 1983 and also became a huge staple in the lesbian bars around the world even though it is fact that the coming out was not something which was considered back then in those times.

“The Hunger” which has now become a vampire classic starred Catherine Deneuve as a seductive temptress dealing with the death of her longtime lover, who becomes ensnared with a young doctor played by Susan Sarandon. With its cool ’80s color palette and slow but steady burn toward its bloody conclusion, “The Hunger” is a delicious snack to satisfy your Sapphic vampire craving.

3. Bram Stoker’s Dracula 

By the name you might be able to identify what the movie is about and which genre it belongs to. This movie was created only with a soundstage and with no visual effects. The film has been criticized for its mannered performances and ornate extravagance, but few films in Hollywood’s modern era have used color and costume so expressively, as designer Eiko Ishioka’s work takes center stage in revealing the burning internal emotions of the characters. As 26 years have passed, it’s impossible to not feel the film’s heartbeat come pouring through Coppola’s precision, as the film has aged like a fine wine.

4.What Do we Do in the Shadows 

Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clemente’s darkly hilarious movie  “What Do We Do In the shadows” is also now a hit series on FX which takes the mockumentary approach to the vampire to essentially humanize the bloodsuckers who haunt our imaginations, making their day to day feel as mundane as our own. The documentary crew drops in on four roommates possessed with all manner of magical powers, from levitation to transmogrification. One is a nazi, another a dandy, another likes knitting, and so on.

Even for vampires, the chore wheel isn’t easily enforced. “What We Do in the Shadows” is a refreshing reminder of how a shopworn genre, when turned upside down, can feel entirely new again.

South Korea is becoming quite popular these days. Be it for their dramas,movies or K-Pop. And they also are known for making quite good horror and zombie movies. With “Thirst”, Park Chan Wook turned the vampire genre into an erotic supernatural horror film that follows Sang-hyun, a Roman Catholic priest who, after a busted medical experiment, becomes possessed by an insatiable lust for blood.

Like many of Park’s films, “Thirst” takes the role through a bizarre love triangle, involving the priest and his married friend’s wife who, once she learns of her lover’s condition, goes all in. There’s nothing ordinary about a vampire  in the movie as he is the same like the others ever portrayed- not well-dressed, erudite, or romantic.

 He doesn’t run amok sinking his fangs into unwitting necks but is, instead, a bit of a sad sack who’s just looking for a connection. The ick factor is taken higher with every exaggerated slurp of blood, and naturally, the director drives his film into a gloriously bloody conclusion.

6. Fright Night (both 1985 version plus the 2011 remake) 

The movie Fright Night (1985) of director Tom Holland, uses vampirism as a metaphor for discovering one's sexuality. It's a good-time horror picture that, in addition to being ahead of its time, features an inspired and tender turn by Roddy McDowell, as well as one of the longest dance sequences ever committed to date.

Equally worth a watch is director Craig Gillespie’  2011 remake of the same name which this time is ser in Sin City. It's one of the more lively and playful additions to the horror remake boom of the last two decades and boasts a surprisingly all-star cast, all of whom know exactly how to handle the material, making the film a highly entertaining vampiric romp.
