#HorrorOct: 10 MUST SEE VAMPIRE FLICKS FROM ALL AROUND THE GLOBE!

Published

on

What better way to end the season for blood and gore with none other than the ‘sweethearts’ of the horror genre, Vampires! Here is a careful pick of the top 10 best Vampire movies produced around the world.  Due to vampires being one of the most universal ‘monsters’ or mythical creatures in folklore, every region has its own take on these bloodsuckers. This collection of films attempts to reflect that variation of fascination and different cultural influences to the classical vampire. But no matter the variation one thing is for certain, Dracula still reign supreme.

10. Thirst (Bakjwi) (2009)

Director Park Chan-wook’s take on vampires is an intense slow burn masterpiece. The film is based on the novel Therese Raquin by Emile Zola. Bakjwi also is known as, the classic bat. The plot bases itself on a priest (Sang Kang-ho) who becomes a vampire through a blood transfusion. And thereon he struggles to maintain his religious faith while fighting his new instincts. Park explores   priest’s temptations and indulgences in a more graphic heavy take. The film won the Jury Prize at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Thirst was also the first mainstream Korean film to feature full-frontal male nudity, which embarked the industry to uncharted waters.

09. Vampire’s Kiss (1988)

Vampire’s Kiss is a 1989 American black comedy horror film directed by Robert Bierman and stars Nicolas Cage, Maria Conchita, Elizebeth Ashley. The film tells the story of a mentally-ill agent, whose condition turns even worse when he ends up thinking that he was bitten by a vampire. Although it did not do well in the box office, it went on to become famous as more of a cult film. The life of white-collar New Yorker Peter (Nicolas Cage) seems to revolve solely around making as much money and sleeping with as many women as possible. After a typical night of scouring trendy bars for some action, Peter manages to take home the sexy Rachel (Jennifer Beals), who bites him on the neck. The film most certainly ends in the most bizarre way as Peter dies, he envisions the vampire-Rachel smiling at him one last time.

08. Cronos (1993)

Cronos is a 1993 Mexican horror film written and directed by Guillermo Del Toro, starring veteran Argentinean actor Federico Luppi Federico Luppi and American actor Ron Perlman.  Cronos is Del Toro’s first feature film and the first of several films on which he collaborated with either Luppi or Perlman. The film was selected as the Mexican entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 66th Academy Awards. In the story, Antique dealer Jesus Gris (Federico Luppi) stumbles across Cronos, a 400-year-old scarab that, when it latches onto him, grants him youth and eternal life — but also a thirst for blood. As Jesus enjoys his newfound vitality, he’s unaware that a dying old man, Dieter de la Guardia.

07. The Lost Boys (1987)

The Lost Boys (1987) reintroduced the mythology behind vampires for its audiences in the 80’s. The film is an American horror comedy film directed by Joel Schumacherand starring Janson Patric, Corey Haim and Kiefer Sutherland. Teenage brothers Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) move with their mother (Dianne Wiest) to a small town in northern California. While the younger Sam meets a pair of kindred spirits in geeky comic-book nerds Edward (Corey Feldman). The boys end up fighting a mob of vampires in the night. One notable point is that the director reminds the audience of the vampire golden rule, never invite them in. To invite a vampire into one’s house renders one powerless. Max’s objective had been to get Lucy to be a mother for his lost boys.

06. Shadow of the Vampire (2000)

Shadow of the Vampire is a 2000 vampire horror film directed by Elias Merhige, written b Steven Katzy, and starring John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe. The film is a fictionalized account of the making of the classic Vampire film Nosferatu (discussed below) in which the film crew begins to have disturbing suspicions about their lead actor. The film borrows the techniques of silent films. Greta becomes hysterical after noticing Schreck casts no reflection. Murnau, Albin and Fritz drug her, and film the scene as Schreck feeds on Greta, killing her, but the laudanum in her blood puts Schreck to sleep. At dawn, the remaining three attempt to open a door and let in sunlight to destroy Schreck. Schreck previously cut the chain, having learned of their trickery. Schreck kills Fritz and Albin while Murnau continues filming. Henrik and the crew arrive in time to lift the door and flood the set with sunlight, destroying Schreck while Murnau films his death.

05. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)

Starring the all so dreamy Brad Pitt, Tom Cruz and Antonio Banderas, what more reason do you need? Interview with the Vampire: the Vampire Chronicles directed by Anne Rice has that perfect combination of sexy and powerful, with a hint of being eternally dammed to be alone. The movie dangles the concept of a vampire indulging on a woman’s open neck to be somewhat erotic foreplay as it is dangerous. Death or eternal life, which is the final verdict? But the story’s beauty lies with the man to man interview, which quiets the male ego of eternal conquest of both flesh and land, but also reveals that thrust and immorality is a truly lonely existence.

04. Innocent Blood (1992)

Innocent Blood is a 1992 American horror film directed by John Landis and written by Michael Wolk. The film stars Anne Parillaud as a beautiful French vampire who finds herself pitted against a gang of vicious mobsters led by Robert Loggia who eventually becomes a vampire. Marie (Anne Parillaud) is a vampire with a conscience, as she only sucks the blood of criminals. And she has plenty to choose from on the mean streets of Pittsburgh, where a gang war is raging. But Marie slips up when she accidentally turns a violent crime lord, Sal Macelli (Robert Loggia), into one of the walking dead.

03.  Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

Jim Jamusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is a fabulous and effortlessly cool depiction of the creatures of the night.  Another aspect of what makes this movie hit all your checkmarks is its stellar cast, with Tilda SwintonTom HiddlestonMia Wasikowska and many more. A co-production of the United Kingdom and Germany, the film was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The story revolves around the two immortal lovers, Adam and Eve (ironically named one might suggest). But the intriguing issue is that rather than feeding on humans, they are depicted to be more like addicts, dependent on local suppliers of the “good stuff” because they fear contamination from blood poisoned by the degradation of the environment. However, they are faced with the decision which all the millennia of knowledge cannot save them from. Starve to death with dignity? Or embrace the monster within?

02.  Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (1922)

Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens or Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror This groundbreaking silent horror film is a 1922 German masterpiece directed by F.W.Murnau. The film stars acting legend, Max Schreck as the vampire count orlok. In this particular adaptation “vampire” became Nosferatu and Count Dracual became Count Orlok. Although the film was later sued for being a copy, the film remains a symbolical supreme among all vampire flicks. The mysterious Count Orlok summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger.

01. Let the Right One In (2008)

Swedish cinematic brilliance of Let the Right One In by director Tomas Alfredson is a penetrating analysis of the darkness within the average 12-year-old. Furthermore it serves as a close yet disturbing examination of the notion ‘pedophile’. Let the Right One In, ranks as our number must see as its gripping reality is sure to keep you both baffled and at the edge of your seat throughout the movie. Being a ripping vampire myth and the romance between tow adolescent kids, the film redefines the contemporary take on Vampires like almost a breath of fresh air amidst the mediocre. Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant) is a bullied 12-year-old schoolboy who befriends Eli (Lina Leandersson), who is pale of skin and dark of eye and wise beyond her years. Eli has recently moved into the estate with a man who may possibly be her father, or a pedophile, or a lover who has grown old while she remains young. She needs constant feeding and her blundering, alcoholic neighbors provide easy pickings.

SRK’S CHEMISTRY WITH 12 OF HIS LEADING LADIES RANKED!

Published

By

SRK and leading ladies

Synonymous with romance and with an envious fan following from around the world, it is without a doubt that Shah Rukh Khan is a global superstar and the heartthrob of countless men and women. His charm, wit, smile, the way he extends his arms to call his beloved, his walk, talk – basically everything has every dil going pagal. The way in which he looks at his heroine is what clicks with his audience.

Today, as our favourite Raj and Rahul turns another year old, we at FilmGeekly have analyzed his chemistry with 12 of his leading ladies. Take a look!

1. Shah Rukh Khan – Kajol (or should we say SRKajol?)

Image result for Shah Rukh Khan – Kajol

This pairing gets our highest rating for obvious reasons. We are more than thankful to Abbas-Mustan for casting them opposite each other in Baazigar (1993) because they are not only India’s most loved onscreen couple, they are one of the most adored pairings in the history of cinema. Their chemistry is to die for and every time they come on screen, we really think they have a janam janam ka bandhan. SRK himself has said that he would have not been such a big superstar if Kajol had not starred in their films together. The songs Tujhe Dekha To from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Suraj Hua Maddham from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) and Janam Janam from Dilwale (2015) are proof of their passion. Needless to say why we, as children, thought they were married in real life too.

2. Shah Rukh Khan – Rani Mukerji

They were sweet in Chalte Chalte (2003) and daring in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006). SRK has looked great opposite Rani Mukerji and together have come across as a convincing pair. Paheli (2005) saw them in endearing roles and they have complemented each other well. Watch them in songs like Tauba Tumhare from Chalte Chalte and Mitwa from Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna to see the sparks fly.

3. Shah Rukh Khan – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

From their unconventional casting as twins Max and Shirley in Mansoor Khan’s Josh (2002) to playing Devdas and Paro in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s tragedy, Devdas (2002), they showed us that they could work it both ways – as siblings and as lovers. They made an adorable pair in Mohabbatein (2000) too and their romance to the song Humko Humise Chura Lo is still loved by many. Fans were thrilled when they saw them, even for a short time in Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), as it reunited them after a gap of 14 years.

4. Shah Rukh Khan – Juhi Chawla

Juhi Chawla is one actress with whom SRK shares superb comic timing with. Their pairing is completely adorable and this is very evident in films like Yes Boss (1997) and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (2000). Their goofy nature is visible in Duplicate (1998) and their scorching chemistry in the song Tu Mere Saamne from the thriller Darr (1993), is enough proof of their comfort level.

5. Shah Rukh Khan – Preity Zinta

Image result for Shah Rukh Khan – Preity Zinta

Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003) and Veer-Zaara (2004) saw SRK portraying Aman Mathur and Veer Pratap Singh, two characters who show immense sacrifice in the awakening of love. Kal Ho Naa Ho made us weep and how thanks to Aman’s untimely death. SRK’s chemistry with Preity Zinta dates back to Dil Se.. (1998), most notably in the song Jiya Jale. Watch the title track of Kal Ho Naa Ho and Tere Liye from Veer-Zaara for evidence of their onscreen love.

6. Shah Rukh Khan – Madhuri Dixit-Nene

Related image

After a couple of flops, the duo struck gold with Yash Chopra’s musical hit Dil To Pagal Hai (1997). How can we forget SRK’s Rahul whispering ‘Aur paas, aur paas’ to Madhuri’s Pooja? SRK has mentioned that he has much respect for the actress. Their on screen chemistry is apparent in the songs Are Re Are and Dholna from Dil To Pagal Hai and the title song from Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam (2002).

7. Shah Rukh Khan – Manisha Koirala

Image result for Shah Rukh Khan – Manisha Koirala

They have starred in two films together – Guddu (1995) and Dil Se.. (1998). While the former was a critical and commercial flop, the latter became a cult classic. Despite being a commercial flop, Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se..  is the only film of theirs which is worth a watch, which brings to light their raw energy, especially in the song Satrangi Re. Watch the song to see the enthralling magic.

8. Shah Rukh Khan – Sushmita Sen

Image result for main hoon na

How can one forget Ms. Chandni and her fancy sarees? SRK and Sushmita Sen’s ‘chemistry’ (pun intended) was the stuff of dreams especially in Main Hoon Na (2004). They did star opposite each other in Dulha Mil Gaya (2010) but the film was not a success. Tumhe Jo Maine Dekha, Tumse Milke Dil Ka and Gori Gori and several scenes from Main Hoon Na allowed the pair to set the screen on fire.

9. Shah Rukh Khan – Priyanka Chopra

Related image

A few pairs are beautiful, some are cute and then there’s SRK and PC. The duo’s appeal was clear as Don and Roma, more so in Don 2 (2012) than Don (2006). Theirs was one of the hottest jodis to be introduced in the 2000s and we wait for Don 3 with baited breath. Revisit their onscreen camaraderie in Don 2, especially in the song Dushman Mera.

10. Shah Rukh Khan – Kareena Kapoor Khan

Related image

Their memorable pairing as Emperor Asoka alias Pawan and Kaurwaki in the period film Asoka (2000) had us awed. Their onscreen presence was seen differently not long after, in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) when they essayed the roles of brother-in-law and sister-in-law. They also starred opposite each other in the sci-fi film Ra.One (2011) and made everyone dance to the hip and happening Chammak Challo. The song Roshni Se from Asoka is testimony to their visual appeal as a pair.

11. Shah Rukh Khan – Deepika Padukone

Image result for Shah Rukh Khan – Deepika Padukone

They made hearts go aww with their pairing as Om Prakash Makhija and Shantipriya and as Om Kapoor and Sandhya in Om Shanti Om (2007). Their chemistry was further seen in Chennai Express (2013) and Happy New Year (2014). Their dimpled affection is evident in the songs Main Agar Kahoon from Om Shanti Om, Titli from Chennai Express and Manwa Laage from Happy New Year.

12. Shah Rukh Khan – Anushka Sharma

Related image

Their quirky but innocent love affair in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) warmed our hearts and made us wish that they had ended up together in Yash Chopra’s swan song, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). Anushka Sharma’s effervescence was present in all 3 films that she starred with SRK and their comfort level was seen in their most recent venture, Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017). Watch Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai and Dance Pe Chance from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Jiya Re from Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Radha from Jab Harry Met Sejal for their onscreen camaraderie.
