The DVDs of the other films directed by Ferrara are very easy to find but, during a very long time, not this one. I don't know why.

Apparently, a Blu-ray was finally released last year.

Otherwise, I have watched nearly every vampire movie that that I really wanted to watch (... not all of the vampire films, that's close to impossible ... and I don't want to waste time watching too many bad vampire movies, except if they are so laughable that they are funny).

Lost Boys is a good movie. I like Near Dark as well.

Among the 1980s films, I would recommend The Hunger (1983), also.

Back then, the stories of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner & Tony Scott's The Hunger were how the two directors tried to cope with the death of their elder brother.

Just like Blade Runner, The Hunger was heavily criticised at the time and, later, became a cult favorite.

The 1990s were the decade of the revival of the vampire movies ! \:\-\)

Coppola's Dracula, Interview with the Vampire, Blade, From Dusk till Dawn, John Carpenter's Vampires, The Wisdom of Crocodiles, Cronos, Innocent Blood ...

    - of all time?

It is very hard to answer that.

I agree with Black Guardian. If I have to pick only one, Murnau's Nosferatu is the most iconic cult movie of the vampire genre.

BTW, I recommend to watch Murnau's Nosferatu, then Herzog's version and then Shadow of the Vampire. \:\-\)
