Top 10 Vampire Movies from the 90s

Hey Children of the 90s! We are very excited that we have hit 3000 fans on Facebook. Thanks everyone for reading and for your support--y'all are all that and a bag of chips and the bomb dot com, all rolled into one. Remember--if you're interested in sharing your 90s content and reminisces, you can always pitch posts to us at childrenofthe90s@gmail.com. Today please enjoy this new guest post from author and vampire expert extraordinaire Vanessa Morgan!

The 90s were a pretty dry period for the vampire genre. With a few exceptions, major vampire movies were few and far between, and those that did make the multiplexes were fairly bloodless affairs. Although the vampire movies from the 90s did not have a real identity of their own, we saw new trends emerging: they marked a clear break from the commercial vampire movies from the 80s and paved the way for the stylish vampire action flicks that are common ground in the new millennium.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1992)


The now overly popular vampire series Buffy The Vampire Slayer started as this cheesy little teen flick with eighties influences. The basis of the film story is the same as the TV series: a teenage girl learns that she is her generation's destined battler of vampires. The cast contained many popular actors from that period, including Kirsty Swanson, Luke Perry, Donald Sutherland, Rutger Hauer, David Arquette and Hillary Swank.


Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)



Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula is still one of the best vampire movies ever made thanks to its breathtaking photography, intriguing storyline, beguiling music and excellent performances from Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, Anthony Hopkins, Winona Ryder, Tom Waits, Sadie Frost and Richard E. Grant.


Innocent Blood (1992)




Innocent Blood is a modern vampire tale that mixes crime with comedy, originality, intelligence and creepiness. Directed by John Landis.


Interview With The Vampire (1994)



Author Anne Rice not only made vampires popular in literature, but also in the movies thanks to the immensely popular adaptation of her novel Interview With The Vampire. It's one of the best vampire movies ever made and has not lost any of its beauty and power. With Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst and Neil Jordan.


The Addiction (1995)



Philosophical tale in black and white about a grad student turned vampire who tries to come to terms with her frequent craving for human blood. Director Abel Ferrari links the need for blood with the need for drugs, turning The Addiction into a well-made film that was so depressing that it marked the end for the serious and dark vampire stories. With Lily Taylor, Christopher Walken and Annabella Sciorra.


Dracula, Dead and Loving It (1995)


After several years of overly serious vampire movies, the world needed to laugh again with the undead and introduced several rather silly vampires movies such as Vampire In Brooklyn, Bordella Of Blood and Dracula, Dead And Loving It. The latter was a vampire spoof from the mind of Mel Brooks that made one big joke out of the genre.


Vampire In Brooklyn (1995)



Wes Craven's politically correct vampire comedy about a black vampire (Eddie Murphie) who's looking for a female mate, but it was a big box office hit nevertheless.


Bordello Of Blood (1996)



Bordello Of Blood was part of the series Tales From The Crypt and focuses on a funeral parlor that moonlights as a vampire bordello.


From Dusk Till Dawn (1997)



Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in an establishment populated by vampires. The vampire twist halfway through the story was so unexpected and well-done, that From Dusk Till Dawn was on everyone's lips (although it did help that Quentin Tarantino directed the movie). From Dusk Till Dawn was also the movie that introduced George Clooney to an audience of cinema goers.


Blade (1998)


With Blade, released in 1998, a new era in vampire movie cinema began. Thanks to Blade, vampires now combined action with superhero powers and big-budget special effects. This story about a half-vampire, half-mortal that became the protector of the mortal race while slaying evil vampires, not only had several sequels, but also several big-budget clones such as Underworld and Daybreakers.

Robert Rodriguez directed FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, Tarantino merely stunk up the screen with his bad acting :]
