A LIST OF ALREADY RELEASED FOREIGN VAMPIRE MOVIES THAT EVERY HORROR FAN SHOULD SEE
Before the huge success of Let The Right One In came Frostbite (Frostbitten). Another astonishing Swedish vampire tale that would remind you of the American horror, 30 Days Of Night (but released before).
Like 30 Day Of Night, Frostbitten is set in a town where the sun disappears, making the town a feeding frenzy for some vamps
I have not seen this film in years, so I am not sure if it has aged well. I remember it being genuinely funny but at the same offering all the gruesomeness that we want from a vampire movie. Well worth checking out if you fancy a dark vampire comedy.
The story of a well loved catholic priest who agrees to try a new drug to help find a vaccine for a virus. The priest immediately responds with unbelievable results. I thinks it’s safe to say that the drug didn’t actually work, and it ain’t long before we see our servant of god showing the effects of vampirism.
Guaranteed to be unlike any vampire film you’ll ever see. A very unusual and different film but wonderfully written and directed. From the director of “Oldboy”, “I Am Cyborg”, and “Stoker”.
From Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, I Am Cyborg, and Stoker)
This film has not only earned its place as one of the best foreign vampire movies, but it has earned its place as one of the greatest horror films of our times. This film received great reviews from every critic around of the world. If you haven’t already seen this one, then you are probably one of the only people on the planet.
The story a young teenage boy called “Oskar” in the early 1980’s, who befriends his new next door neighbour, who also happens to be a 200 yr old vampire stuck in a kids body
A lot of people don’t know this fact about the film, and I can’t remember completely, but they seemed to have left it out of the American remake. Oskar notices a huge scar on Eli when he is looking at her getting changed. Eli isn’t a girl at all. Not only has poor little Oskar, fell for a blood sucking hound from hell; he has also had fallen for a 200-year-old castrated boy.
That fact completely changed my view of the film. I left the film feeling it was sort of a romantic vampire love story (done well),. ThenI found out that “Eli” was actually castrated boy, it automatically gave the film a darker and sinister tone.
Helmed as one of the finest horror films to have come out of the 1990’s. Cronos is the directorial debut from Guillermo Del Toro, and everyone knows that this man has went on to make, and continues to make some of the finest and most visually striking films released today
The story of an elderly antique dealer who discovers a device called The Cronos. This device has the power to grant him eternal life, but at the same same time gives him a craving for blood.
When Vlad returns home from Italy he finds out that one of the residents of his village has been murdered. Not only that, there is something not right and the rest of the villagers are acting very strange.
This is not your typical vampire film, and that’s the reason I loved it so much.
A low-budget horror comedy from Romania, written and directed by Faye Jackson, that is wonderfully unique and completely different from your average fang-fest.
