Boy, those ‘Twilight’ movies really put the ‘suck’ in bloodsuckers don’t they? Never fear!
Vampires used to be cool and scary and just plain awesome! Instead of all that glow-in-the-light nonsense Robert Pattinson and his lot were spouting about, I’ve got sharpened fangs, gallons of blood and plenty of the undead ass-kicking that comes with films like ‘Cronos’.
I had a hard time believing this was actually made in the 90s. Coppola’s retelling of the definitive vampire tale is gothic, sexually-charged and downright chilling. There’s never been a better vamp portrayal than that of Gary Oldman – he even hired a vocal coach to get his voice as low as the role required.
Wesley Snipes returns to the role of ‘Blade’ in this balls-to-the-wall sequel complete with sword-slashing antiheroes, monstrous creatures of darkness and more leather than you could shake a stick at. Better than the original in almost every way, ‘Blade II’ will have you raring to go in the fight against its breed of demonic-looking vampires.
Seriously, screw this film. I didn’t sleep for a week after watching this Stephen King adaptation about a plague of vampires running amok in a quiet town. From the head vampire’s terrifying introduction to the legion of infected townspeople he commands, everything about this film will shake you up. There’s jump scares galore and some truly horrific images that will no doubt sear themselves on your brain.
I’m going to discount the hideous remake starring Colin Farrell – there’s only one Jerry Dandridge and that is Chris Sarandon. He’s everything a vampire should be in that he’s got the sex appeal, the personality and the intimidating presence.
Plus it’s great fun to see him terrorise poor Charlie Brewster next door.
Described as a “love letter to horror fans” this is, quite simply, an 80s classic!
Don’t forget to also check out these other awesome films like ‘Fright Night’.
So maybe you’re not a big fan of vampires, but you’re into your Spanish-language horror movies. If that’s the case, I’ve got just the films to creep you out!
Set in a quarantined apartment building, a group of people that includes the local residents, a fire crew and a local news team must all battle a deadly infection that is turning everybody into flesh-eating zombie-like beasties. They don’t make them as good as this anywhere else.
J.A. Bayona’s directorial debut is one of the most assured pieces of cinema from a newcomer I’ve ever seen. With astute handling he crafts a masterful tale that is harrowing, taut and beautiful at the same time.
A word of warning though – you’ll be having nightmares about that young boy with the sack on his head after this movie … he might even appear at the end of your bed! Sleep tight!
That’s what you’ll be needing by the end of this horror movie marathon. If there was any doubt that vampires had lost their allure and vigour, stick one of these on and prepare to think differently.
