What comes to our mind when we think of Vampires? I know, Dracula. But according to my movie knowledge and facts, there are any movies which are not based on Count Dracula but still show the real side of the vampires. Vampire movies are always based on the thin line between horror and fantasy genre.
If we go back in time, we’ll observe that Vampires are always showcased as negative and villainous characters in the movie. But it’s not the trend today. Audience views are reformed as movies now days portray the other side of vampires and guess what? People love it.
This list of mine might not include the most famous vampire movie, but the most entertaining ones. So, here it goes.
