There are hundreds of vampire movies that have been produced over the years and the debate will still continue as to which of them the best was and should be on the list of all-time greats. We however have chosen to take a different perspective to this and will list down what we feel are our top 3 vampire movies of all time.
No 1. Nosferatu produced in 1922
If you began your appreciation for horror movies early on then then you have definitely watched Nosferatu which was a silent film produced way back in 1922 and one of the very first movies to depict vampires. The most notable part about this movie was that the use of the vampire was symbolic and only a few people got it at the end. We deliberately chose not to issue any spoilers. Go watch the movie.
No 2. Dracula produced in 1931
Whereas there have been many variations of Dracula, the original 1931 production which by the way was a black and white film still stands out for those who appreciate quality filmmaking. The vampire depicted in this movie though supernatural was not too much of an exaggeration if you understand what we mean but was a very believable creature.
No. 3 Near Dark produced in 1987
The Near Dark film sought to create a whole new identity for vampires and gave rise to the notion that vampires could exist among humans doing ordinary human things. It’s from this movie’s idea of the vampire that many other ideas were born that inspire other vampire movies.
We consider this our top three pick of all time vampire movies because they were produced at a time when fancy graphics and fancy make up had not been discovered but the movies still went on to attract huge audiences.
