Blood: The Last Vampire (2000)

This is the original medium-length animé that spawned the 2009 feature film as well as endless other connected franchises. Because of its length – and because of the secret nature of the heroine’s mission – we do not really get to know any of the characters too well. This is a film featuring a mission, and there is little room for anything else besides chases and fights. […]

Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

Jim Jarmusch’s contribution to the vampire genre is a slow-paced, atmospheric, character-driven piece with very little plot. A well-made and beautifully shot art-piece that has at its core very little to do with vampires, but a lot with longevity. […]

Eternal (2004)

Les morsures de l’aube (2001)

A man stumbles through Paris’s night-life looking for a man he doesn’t know. Based on a novel by prize-winning French author Tonino Benacquista, this film (also known as Love Bites) is full of untapped potential and minor plot holes. […]

Night of the Vampire Hunter (2000)

A German indie film produced with no budget, using an amateur cast. And yet it does not look awful (although often lacking in light), has interesting practical effects, and its story keeps you interested throughout. […]

Nadja (1994)

Micheal Almereyda’s Nadja, produced by David Lynch, is a rather odd vampire film with a fair amount of hidden and deadpan humour. With its unusual humour and its experimental visual style, this black & white film will probably not be to everyone’s taste. […]
