Let me talk about five recent vampire films which are criticized a lot. In the history of horror films, there are 100’s of Vampire movies based on Nosferatu, Vampire, the Dracula. The bloodsucker devil created panic and fear in our mind every time we watch them in the theater. The last five years we got many interesting experimental vampire films that rebirth the legend. Do not miss to watch them all.

  1. Great films here. I’m esp. a fan of #1 & 2. (The US remake of “Let the RIght One In” was actually very good – for a remake.) Great possibilities in the whole Vampire motif/symbolism. With a little imagination, it can lead most anywhere!

    I know this is a list of recent movies, but among the all-timers, I’d also include Tony Scott’s The Hunger, with David Bowie, Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve. And the quasi-rococo Coppola’s Dracula is worth mentioning, at least for Gary Oldman’s performance. (The American version of Let the Right One In is also very good). Your top three are right on the money, though. Thanks Vikram.
