Top 10 Vampire Movies on Netflix This Week

Aliens Invasion Adventures and Slasher Films are just two examples of the many vampire movies on Netflix. However, there’s a reason why the vampire film has endured as a classic for so long. 

Viewers have been enthralled with tales of the nocturnal bloodsuckers since Nosferatu appeared on some of the first movie screens a century ago. 

Although the first vampire film focused primarily on horror, modern vampire films have moved beyond the conventional Dracula-inspired plot structure, with some selections on this list leaning far more toward comedy than horror.

Amazing Vampire Movies on Netflix this Week

These vampire movies on Netflix will get you in the perfect spooky season mood, whether you’re looking to laugh or get scared. 

So gather your besties—a warm blanket and an even cozier beverage—turn down the lights and get ready for a spine-tingling (or belly-laughing) binge-watching session of the best vampire films available on Netflix.

1. 30 Days Of Night

30 Days of Night, which is based on the comic series by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, follows the residents of an Alaskan town as they come under attack by a ferocious pack of vampires who thrive in an area that is completely dark for more than a month during the winter.

The survivors need to figure out how to ward off potential predators until daylight returns because they are cut off from the outside world and the town’s power has been cut off. 

Both Josh Hartnett in the lead role of Sheriff Eben Oleson and Danny Huston in the role of Marlow, the stern and uncompromising leader of the vampires, are excellent.

2. The Addiction

Considering some titles included, it’s quite an accomplishment that Abel Ferrara’s The Addiction is among the list’s stranger inclusions. 

The main character of the movie is Kathleen (Lili Taylor), a doctoral student studying philosophy, who gets attacked by a woman while walking home at night and then turns into a bloodthirsty seductress. 

As she stalks and entices new victims to feed on, Kathleen fatalistically reflects on the quotes of George Santayana, Jean-Paul Sartre, and other authors as she struggles with the reality of her bizarre new condition.

3. A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

The vampire tale A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is set in Iran and has a distinct art house feel with spaghetti Western influences. 

Sheila Vand, the title character, is a skateboarding vampire dressed in chadors who can be both a throwback to classic Nosferatu-style creeps and utterly modern at the same time. 

From staging to music selections to costumes, writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s distinctive approach to fusing different genres is evident in each decision.

4. The Batman Vs. Dracula

In search of a much funnier vampire tale? Try Batman vs. Dracula, one of the many hilarious Batman crossovers. 

This silly good time in Gotham, where the Penguin unintentionally awakens Dracula (voiced by Peter Stormare) and causes chaos between Bat and Batman, is one of our choices for the best animated Batman films.

You will enjoy this one if you find it endearing that Dracula goes by “Dr. Alucard” as his human alter ego and you get giddy at the idea of Batman using his garlic knuckles to strike a vampire Joker.

5. Blade

Not only is Wesley Snipes’ pivotal role as the half-human, half-vampire Blade the precursor to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s also an incredibly entertaining vampire film on its own. 

The original Blade is still regarded as a true vampire movie classic because of its iconic opening scene, which takes place in an underground vampire blood rave; heart-pounding action scenes; and Snipes’ endearingly funny and captivating on-screen persona.

6. Cronos

Cronos, the macabre and fantastical film that became Guillermo del Toro’s signature in 1993, set the tone for the kind of films he would go on to direct. It’s still a fascinating horror tale‌.

Following an injury sustained while uncovering a golden scarab-like device forged by an enigmatic alchemist, elderly antique dealer Jesús Gris (Federico Luppi) is gifted with newfound youth and a terrifying new thirst. 

As Gris becomes addicted to the device’s restorative qualities, he is pursued by his thuggish nephew Ron Perlman and a wealthy, dying businessman named Claudio Brook, who want to possess its abilities for themselves.

7. From Dusk Till Dawn

Robert Rodriguez’s body of work can be easily divided into two categories: kid-friendly action comedies and R-rated action and horror films. From Dusk to Dawn belongs firmly in the former group.

Bank robbers on the run, George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino take a family hostage as part of their escape strategy. They discover they are surrounded by vampires during a bar fight that breaks out when they stop at a saloon.

It is a vulgar and graphic experience, the length of time you spend with this one might depend on how patient you are with Quentin Tarantino’s portrayal of a very cruel character. 

8. Interview With The Vampire

In the movie Interview with the Vampire, Tom Cruise, and Brad Pitt play the roles of Lestat de Lioncourt, the older vampire who is the sire of Louis de Pointe du Lac, an 18th-century vampire who is tired of living an endless life of loneliness and hunger. 

Speaking to a reporter who has his own personal agenda, Louis narrates the many years of love, betrayal, and death that have dogged his life. 

From Lestat and Louis’ dramatic falling out to the adoption and raising of a young vampire named Claudia, Louis shares the tale of his life.

9. The Lost Boys

The Lost Boys, a campy cult classic vampire comedy directed by Joel Schumacher, is about two brothers named Sam and Michael, who move to Santa Carla, California, to live with their eccentric grandfather after their mother recently got divorced. 

The city has earned the moniker “murder capital of the world,” and Michael and Sam are drawn to the sinister meaning of the moniker when they separately come across a group of vampires led by the evil David who prey on the residents of the town. 

The Lost Boys is a schlocky and stylish horror comedy that’s worth seeing for Corey Feldman’s peculiar, Rambo-esque line delivery alone. Think of it as The Goonies meets vampires. 

10. Nosferatu

With its 100th anniversary coming in 2022, F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu is an essential inclusion on any list of vampire horror films. 

The 1922 silent horror film, an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, centers on Count Orlok, a menacing and powerful vampire who has his sights set on the wife of an estate agent who pays him a visit in Transylvania for business. 

Characters such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 2014’s What We Do in the Shadows have imitated and mocked Max Schreck’s portrayal of Orlok, a gaunt and menacing specter of supernatural malice.

Vampire movies can be scary at times. However, most people enjoy watching them for one entertainment purpose or another.

If watching vampire movies is your thing, you can always refer to the above list of Netflix movies.
