Here are some of the upcoming vampire films releasing in the next couple years that I am really looking forward to seeing! (Ordered by films with posters/publicity photos first, then by confirmed release dates or project completion status.)
If you know of any others that need added, leave me a comment!
(NOTE: If a film was on this list, but has since been released, you may find it on my 70 Best Vampire Movies
list and if it is not there, then it scored too low to make the cut and has simply been removed from the list.)
The thriller takes place in present city of Ostrava during one day and one night. It is a story about starting journalist Isabel... (90 mins.)
“ Another film with an interesting premise, but again little is known about it. Will update with more info when it is available. ” - Margaret_Nieter
An 18th century English cartographer, Jonathan Green, sets out on a journey to map the uncharted lands of Transylvania, only to discover the dark secrets and dangerous creatures hidden in a cursed, fantastical Romanian forest. (127 mins.)
“ Based on Gogol's story and a remake (or a continuation?) of the 1967 russian film VIY (which is the same story that Black Sunday draws it's inspiration from). I am not sure how much of this film will actually reference vampires, but it looks like it might be good. (No US release date yet) ” - Margaret_Nieter
Of Light and Darkness
Charlotte, a mortal girl bound between the lines of light and darkness, must fight for life and love in a mystical realm of vampires, elves, and creatures of myth and fantasy, in a town just beyond the boundaries of the modern world. (120 mins.)
“ Apparently this is another one based on a fantasy book series. I've not read it and don't know much about it, but this seems to have potential. The trailer looks a little low budget, but the story could be good. We'll have to wait and see. ” - Margaret_Nieter
Dance with a Vampyre
A lonely stripper. A lonely vampire. 1 night that will change them forever. (90 mins.)
“ This looks like it could be a remake of the 1989 film of the same name, but details are sketchy on this at the moment. One worth keeping an eye out for. ” - Margaret_Nieter
The Last Voyage of Demeter
Follows the ill-fated crew aboard the merchant ship Demeter which carried Dracula's coffin from Transylvania to England only to arrive at port with no survivors aboard.
“ The concept and cast of this is so great I am there without question. What a great way of making Dracula new again!
UPDATE: This is slowly moving forward. Hopeful that we might get to see this story yet. ” - Margaret_Nieter
Mina is a thriller that deals with 3 worlds, a little girl with a dark secret, the world of an ancient breed of vampire-like flesh eaters, and an FBI tracker sworn from childhood to track these creatures to extinction.
“ Not much known about this one either. Sounds like an interesting premise, though. ” - Margaret_Nieter
Jonathan Harker is a Scotland Yard detective consumed with finding Dracula.
“ I love this concept! Too early to get excited, but definitely one to keep an eye on. ” - Margaret_Nieter
“ Lestat back on the big screen? Hooray! Let's hope they don't screw it up this time! I can't wait for this one! ” - Margaret_Nieter
(2016 TV Series)
A preacher heads out on a journey to combat the supernatural evil that just decimated his Texas hometown. (60 mins.)
“ Based on the graphic novel, I assume? I have heard very good things about this series and so this is another one which could be great, but again it depends on what happens with it. D.J. Caruso seems to be a pretty good director, though, so it could be great. ” - Margaret_Nieter
An action comedy about a neurotic father who faces off against monsters from his childhood.
“ The concept of this almost seems to be a sequel. I think that could be good. It might be a good family movie, but there is little to go on so far. ” - Margaret_Nieter
The Passage (TV)
A post-apocalyptic story about a botched U.S. government experiment that turns a group of death row inmates into highly infectious vampires, and an orphan girl who might be the only person able to stop the ensuing crisis.
“ One of the best reviewed vampire books of 2010 spawned a bidding war for the rights to the film. Just recently read this book. It is epic. Could easily be three films, and so I am very curious to see what happens with this one. We'll have to wait to see.
Update: This one appears to be in flux now, too! Hope they get it back on track. ” - Margaret_Nieter
“ This one is rumored to have Will Smith starring in the role of Cain in a Cain and Abel retelling with vampires. This is all just hearsay at the moment, though. ” - Margaret_Nieter
The Night Stalker
Journalist, Carl Kolchak, investigates unusual cases involving supernatural occurrences.
“ This appears to be a remake of the TV movie from the 70s. Sounds like another interesting project! ” - Margaret_Nieter
In Romania, a TV producer has a professional encounter with Dracula, who has assumed the persona of an infamous arms dealer.
“ This is another intriguing one. I have not read this book, but I have heard good things. With John Carpenter helming this, it could be great, or it could be terrible. I'll be interested to see what happens with the casting of this. ” - Margaret_Nieter
“ Cool concept! But knowing very little about this and it being so far in the future, this one is anybody's guess. ” - Margaret_Nieter
This movie focuses on the origin of the eternal struggle between the Belmont clan and Lord Dracula.
“ This could be great or terrible depending on what they do with it, either way, I'll be watching to see what exactly that is. ” - Margaret_Nieter
“ Looks like this one has now entered the iffy status and lost its stars...we'll see if this gets scrapped or not. ” - Margaret_Nieter
A horror tale centered on Vlad the Impaler's years as a young prince.
“ Another film about Vlad Tepes. It seems this one is still up in the air. ” - Margaret_Nieter
“ A remake of Van Helsing starring Tom Cruise? I honestly don't know WHAT to think of this one. ” - Margaret_Nieter
