The ’90s saw a lot of vampire movies, but these ten are the best according to Rotten Tomatoes.
One of the oldest forms of horror cinema is the vampire genre. The first significant vampire movie arrived in 1922 with Nosferatu, based on the 1897 horror novel Dracula. The first of the Universal Horror Monsters then came in 1931 with Dracula, which also received a Spanish-language version of the same film. Since that time, vampires have been a movie staple.
It looked like, in the ’80s, vampire movies were making a comeback. In 1987, The Lost Boysand Near Dark started the revival, and the ’90s saw several different types of vampire stories, from comedies to gothic horror tales, to a straight-up superhero movie.
