Vampire Movies Of The 90s: 40 Nostalgic Favs!

Hey 90s babies, feeling nostalgic? We got just the thing: Vampire Movies Of The 90s!

The good old 1990s was the era that birthed grunge music and saw a huge rise in the rave scene. Vampire movies from the 90s reflected that darker grungier time in our history, but it didn’t always take itself seriously. A big part of the 90s was poking fun at pop culture with its over the top slapstick comedy.

To that end, we’ve rated our Top 40 Vampire Movies Of The 90s and divided them into categories for you!

Because while we can’t bring back the iconic Blockbuster, we can at least help you set the mood for a fang-tastic ‘Blockbuster night’. Enjoy!
