I was browsing through my NetFlix Watch Instantly section, –and my fellow subscribers will understand this, –coming across new additions to the Watch Instantly section is almost like… coming downstairs on Christmas. Especially if you love b-movies, indie films, and cheap horror. Which means a few new instantly watch-able vampire movies, that maybe not all my fellow Flixers will know about just yet. And there’s also a MAJOR classic available too. So log into your NetFlix, pop the proverbial corn, and click the little blue button, because you won’t want to miss the new vampire movies NetFlix has added to their instant selection. No mailbox necessary!
Mad Monster Party (1967) – Ah the days of stop-action animation, music, and kid-friendly horror; Mad Monster Party incorporates all the best things about movies from the late 60s. There’s something for everyone including the adults who have been searching for this cult favorite forever. And if you haven’t seen it yet, well, remember the old school Rudolf movies? Think of that. Except with monsters…. and Phylis Diller.
Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995) – This is one of the greatest vampire spoofs of all time, and it came out just in time to memorialize the late comedy idol, Leslie Nielsen, in one of his best roles, the bumbling Count Dracula, re-imagined by none other than Mel Brooks, reigning King of 90s Comedy. You won’t find a funnier vampire anywhere else.
Blacula (1972) & Scream, Blacula, Scream! (1973) – These classic vampire flicks were released in the early 70s, and became classics forever remembered in film history. Why? Because they symbolize the rarity of black culture invading the horror industry, the beginning of black film, and the decade of great black movies that began in the 70s.
Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead (2009) – Imagine if Shakespeare’s tragedy was re-written, and then cast, directed, and performed… by vampires. Inevitably, the play would become a tale about vampires… which somehow end up searching for the Holy Grail. How does this work out? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out, but I will tell you, it’s creepy and beautifully filmed.
