7 Fascinating Movies Like Twilight You Need To Watch In 2022!


Be honest; you still miss Twilight, don’t you? Swooning over the Bella and Edward romance used to be the THING! I feel you. With our teenage years behind us, I feel some of us at some point have wondered what movies like Twilight one could watch right now. A fantasy or a romance movie – either will do. 

While there have been several attempts to recreate the vampire-human love saga, the best way to describe them is to err… cringe. Not to say Twilight didn’t get its fair share of criticism, but at least it did well at the box office. So whether you are looking to follow up on Edward and Bella, or looking for something different, I think this list should help you out.

7 Fascinating Movies Like Twilight | Movies You Should Stream Right Now!

I forgot to ask before getting into this article – are you #TeamJacob or #TeamEdward? Please choose one before proceeding! I’m only kidding; I don’t discriminate. Not anymore, at least. But a decade ago, when Robert Pattinson was all the rage, the battle would have been fierce! 

It’s 2022, and the actors have moved on to bigger and better projects. Kristen Stewart was recently nominated for an Oscar, and Robbo is the new Batman. So I think things worked out well for the actors after Twilight ended. I couldn’t be happier for them! Okay, now, onto our list of movies like Twilight you should watch if you haven’t already!

7 Fascinating Movies Like Twilight You Need To Watch In 2022!

Did you know the author of Twilight also wrote the book on which The Host is based? If you didn’t, now you do! The Host is based on the book written by Stephanie Meyer and stars Saoirse Ronan in the lead. Unlike blood-sucking vampires, The Host sees the world gets taken over by an alien species that takes over the bodies of humans. 

Following this, the person’s memory is erased, and they don’t know who they are. Melanie (played by Ronan) has to save herself and her loved ones from the alien infection, whatever the cost. The threat to her is unseen, yet the dangers are clearly visible. If you are a big fan of Meyer’s and her works, then The Host is a must-watch.

7 Fascinating Movies Like Twilight You Need To Watch In 2022!

Ask Bella, and she will tell you how hard it is to fall in love with someone from a different species. Now imagine falling in love with an ‘undead’ person. Warm Bodies follows the life of Julie, a human, and R, a zombie. Instead of feasting on her brains, R feels the need to protect Julie from any and all dangers. 

Their love rekindles the last shred of humanity inside of R, and he begins to become more human-like. While their difference unites them, the same difference threatens their entire relationship as other zombies don’t trust Julie. They want to eat her and make her a zombie too. In a tale of love overcoming the differences, Warm Bodies is one of the closest movies like Twilight.

4# Fifty Shades Of Grey (2015) 

7 Fascinating Movies Like Twilight You Need To Watch In 2022!

How can there be a list of movies like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey not be featured in it?! The whole existence of the franchise is because it started as fanfiction based on the Twilight saga. A shy young girl, Anastasia, falls in love with an ultra-rich businessman, Christian Grey. Sweet story, right? 

Nope. There’s more. Grey has some weird fetishes, which Anastasia slowly gets accustomed to and even starts to like. If you are into that, give Fifty Shades of Grey a go. Fifty Shades of Grey has a few sequels that slowly build the main characters as somewhat relatable. The mysterious aura of what makes Christian Grey the way he is is also interesting to see.

Before fans of Robert Pattinson come for me with pitchforks in hand, here’s a sweet movie with Robbo as the star front and center.

He plans to seduce her and take advantage of her to get back at him.

Abdul Mukeet
Abdul Mukeet
Two things define Abdul Mukeet. His love for literature and his love for food. He likes to indulge in the best versions of both of them. When he is not writing for Viebly, you can find him cooped up in a corner with a good book in his hand and a cat in his lap. Oh, yeah, he loves cats too. His interests lie in psychology and knowing what makes humans click. That is what he wants his writings to look be like too. Something that readers can click with. One day he will be an established author, till then, you can find him on Twitter tweeting lame puns and making unfunny jokes.
