Fascination is always inspired by the things that remain unknown to us. There is no limit to imagination and there are some tales that never grow old, much like the focus of their stories! It’d be a hard task to trace the origins of the lore that propagated the story of a blood-sucking being who could only come out in the dark; though one can, pretty unarguably, say that Bram Stoker played a big role in it. However, the world has moved on, and the story of vampires has evolved over time. They are not limited to being foul creatures that can turn into a bat at will.
From shiny, pretty things to assassins in skinny black capes, vampires and draculas have come a very long way. Like any good tale, their stories never get old. In fact, every now and then, authors and filmmakers concoct some new world with these creatures, making some minor changes in their strengths and weaknesses. Whether you are the romantic who fell for Edward, or the goth who’d rather watch Selene kick some Lycan ass, Netflix has just the movies that will keep you satiated. Here is the list of really good dracula and vampire movies on Netflix. The list includes romantic vampire movies, female vampire films, vampire horror films and vampire films for kids.
8. Family Blood (2018)
This film is unlike any other on the list. In fact, it is one of those rare vampire films that take a different turn and rather than focusing on blood and gore or reeking with cheesy romance, hold the promise of being subject of a meaningful conversation. Ellie is a drug addict. She has ruined her life because of her addiction, and now, it is wreaking havoc on the life of her children as well. For their sake, she decides to get clean. However, her children have witnessed similar attempts before and know that, like previous times, Ellie will relapse sooner or later. And so, it happens. However, this time, she comes back with a different sort of addiction. In her recovery meetings, she comes across Christopher. He is an addict too, but what he is hooked on is something entirely different than what plagues Ellie. Falling for him, Ellie allows him into her life and her home. Her children are forced to pay the price of her ignorance.
7. Stake Land II (aka The Stakelander) (2016)
This film is the sequel to 2010’s ‘Stake Land’ which is set in a post-apocalyptic world. A virus turned humans into vampires and since then, the world has become the lair of chaos. The humans have huddled together to save themselves from the growing number of the blood-thirsty creatures. Martin is a young man whose family is killed in an attack by vampires and he, then, vows to learn ways to kill them. Owing to his good luck, he crosses path with Mister who is adept at killing vampires and comes under his tutelage. The end of the last film saw Martin becoming a master at killing vampires, and Mister parting ways with his protégé considering that he had done his work. In ‘Stake Land II’, we find that the world hasn’t changed. The same forces are at work and the conditions have only worsened. When another tragedy befalls Martin, he is forced to seek out Mister, and together, they take the danger head-on. Only this time, it is not as easy to emerge victoriously. Sacrifices will have to be made.
