90s Vampire Movies

90s vampire movies

The 1990s were a pretty dry period for the vampire genre. With a few exceptions, major vampire movies were far and few between, and those that did make the multiplexes were fairly bloodless affairs. Although the vampire movies from the 90s didn't have a real identity of their own, we can see new trends emerging: they marked a clear break from the fun vampire movies from the 1980s 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 80s influences. The basis of the story is the same: a teenage girl learns that she is her generation's destined battler of vampires. The cast contained many big names, 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 hasn't 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 Ferrara 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 BrooklynBordello 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)

Many people hated Wes Craven's politically correct vampire comedy about a black vampire (Eddie Murphy) 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 reguge in an establishment populated by vampires. The vampire twist half-way 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. Vampires now combined action with super-hero 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.

 
 
Vampire Movies from the 1990s has appeared as a guest post on Children Of The 90s and was part from the Book Blog Tour of A Good Man.

About A Good Man
 
Loved Dexter and American Psycho? Then chances are you will love A Good Man.

Louis Caron is a good man – vegetarian, he feeds the homeless, takes care of animals and is concerned with the ecological future of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he's a vampire - and local detective Taglioni is becoming increasingly suspicious. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about most.

  10. I'm a new follower from the hop! I am absolutely amazed...because there are a few movies on your list that I haven't seen yet! I love vampire books and movies (before it became popular, if you know what I mean)! My favorites from the 90s include Interview with the Vampire, Blade and of course...Bram Stokers Dracula! I loved most of the Anne Rice books, but the only movie of "hers" that I loved was Interview.

  11. This is such a cool list. Buffy and Blade are two of my all time favorites, so the 90's was a god mine of vampires for me! Great post.

    My favorite from the list above is Dusk til Dawn- I actually have the screen play and my friends and I may or may not have acted it out on my 20th birthday... which was a long, long time ago. I was a teen in the 90's and it was a sad time for vampire movies. But I probably watched The Lost Boys a million times when I was in high school, despite it being from the late 80's.

  14. Does "Showgirls" count?

    The only one I haven't seen, or even heard is "Dead and Loving It" which I will have to track down a copy of as it sounds awesome.

    I also liked "Vampires" starring James Woods and Daniel Baldwin.

  15. Hi, I stopped by from the blog hop and shared this post on twitter. I'm with you. The 90s was a great time for vampires. No diamond vampires that glitter and spend their days making googly eyes at little girls. Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Interview with a Vampire are my two favorites.

  19. L'ENFANT NUCLÉAIRE de Daph Nobody:

    Depuis son plus jeune âge, Jiminy Waterson a un don : un estomac à toute épreuve, capable de dissoudre de ses sucs gastriques particulièrement puissants tout ce qui n’est pas comestible. On veut faire de lui un rat de laboratoire, mais son ami Alex l’encourage à utiliser ce don sous la forme d’un show, et l’entraîne dans une tournée à travers les États-Unis. Ainsi, au détour d’un prêt-à-manger planté au bord d’une route de Virginie, Jiminy devient-il L’Homme au Ventre Magique. Mais quel est donc le rapport avec ce complot politique qui se trame autour d’un détournement de déchets nucléaires ? Ou avec ce prisonnier dans le couloir de la mort, dont on organise secrètement l’évasion ? Ou encore avec ce flic qui n’a plus qu’une seule idée en tête : se débarrasser de sa femme ? Un seul dénominateur commun : la folie humaine…

  20. Love the 'Buffy' TV series! I'm not a fan of Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of 'Dracula'. I think it's visually stunning but completely lost the true spirit of the novel. Loved both the novel and the movie of 'Interview with the Vampire', although I don't like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise in the lead roles. I thought Kirsten Dunst was wonderful though! Thanks for this trip down vamp memory lane! :)

  38. Some most-expected drama movies and action movies failed to draw audiences to the theater, but the comedies of 2009 were well able to do good box office business. Perhaps the recession and economic downturn make people seek laughter during these stress-filled times. Though a few of the comedies of 2009 didn't have that aura which solarmovie them in the list of funniest movies ever, except Hangover, they somehow kept the box office ringing.

  39. The traditional method of watching movies involved going to the theater or watching movies at the home theater by renting movie videos. Though visiting theatres or watching movies on the DVDs are still popular options, another method, which is giving them a run for their money, is watching movies online. Another plus point is that in most cases the movies are free of charge. https://freenetflixacc2019.weebly.com/

  41. If you are a horror movie fan you already know how intense an experience these types of films can be. There are some horror movies that combine humor with the storyline as a way of letting the audience catch their breath. Other "scary movies" maintain the fright factor throughout the film. koktale
