Available from this Friday, August 12 on Netflix, the film Day-Shift by JJ Perry with Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco and Snoop Dogg directly ranked at the head of the most viewed programs on the American streaming platform.

But, suddenly, what are the best vampire movies available on Netflix? We take stock.

Dracula UntoldDracula goes to war against the Turks!
In the 15th century, Transylvania experienced a period of relative calm under the reign of Prince Vlad III of Wallachia… But one day, the powerful Ottoman Empire, whose domination continued to extend in Eastern Europe, demanded from the latter 1000 young men to join the ranks of the Turkish army. Vlad must then make a choice: abandon his own son to the sultan or defend himself! He then goes to meet a demon to gain power… but in exchange for what, he will be overwhelmed with an insatiable thirst for human blood.

Blood Red Skythere’s a vampire on the plane!
In this American-German production, Nadja falls ill after being bitten by an unknown creature. In order to control the infection, she must regularly inject herself with medication in order to preserve her blood. But the solution to all this is in the United States where a doctor promises to reverse his pathology. But during the Düsseldorf – New York flight, Nadja is going through hell… In the sky, hijackers take control of the plane. Nadja will therefore use her abilities to regain control of the plane, and protect her son. No matter the cost. Be careful, this film mixes too many things and could easily displease many spectators. A vampire against terrorists, really? Yes, Blood Red Sky is far from being a masterpiece, but the script, totally confusing, nevertheless manages to captivate us for nearly 2 hours.
