Re: 90s horror

Bram Stokers Dracula.

Aside from a weak performance by Keanu Reeves and an occasionally weak script, I think the movie is pretty good. I really enjoy the visual style and atmosphere.
Dracula was pretty goofy but it wasn't bad. Need to watch that again soon.

When a Stranger Calls Back.

This sequel is really pretty creepy and I like it better than the original. It came out in 1993 and not even in the theaters, but on Showtime. Sounds like it shouldn't be good, but it is. The opening scene is every bit as good as the original's opening, but unlike that one this one keeps the tension pretty much throughout the whole film.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give that a look.

I believe The Exorcist III and the Night of the Living Dead remake were both early '90s. Those are two I enjoy. I just got Mimic on Blu-ray; that's a good one.
I really need to check out Exorcist III - I've heard from more than one source it's underrated, plus it features Brad Dourif in a role similar to his appearance in the X-Files episode "Beyond the Sea".

The mention of Dracula reminded me of Nadja, a low-budget black and white vampire flick. Some laughably pretentious dialogue, but a good movie overall.
