Missing Bella & Edward? You’ll Love These 22 Movies Like ‘Twilight’

Has it really been more than a decade since we last saw Kristen Stewart grace the big screen as Bella Swan?

It feels like it was just yesterday when passionate Twilight fans were breaking the internet over #TeamJacob and #TeamEdward (FYI, Team Edward all the way). And now, Stewart is making headlines once again, thanks to her titular role in the Princess Diana biopic Spencer. But as excited as we are to see her embody the late royal, we admit, we kinda miss seeing her as the awkward, lovestruck teen.

For those who could also use a walk down memory lane to fill the vampire-shaped void, here are 20 movies like Twilight you can stream right now, from Warm Bodies to Beautiful Creatures.

The 28 Best Vampire Movies You Can Stream Right Now

1. The Host (2013)

  • Who's in it? Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, William Hurt, Diane Kruger
  • Rating: PG-13

From the mind of Stephenie Meyer, the same author that brought us TwilightThe Host is a lot like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but with a YA twist.

There are no vampires or werewolves in this story, but Jared and Melanie’s chemistry will definitely remind you of Bella and Edward.

​​In this modernized retelling of Beauty and the Beast, we see the similar theme of an unlikely couple beating the odds. Pettyfer stars as Kyle, a narcissistic bully who picks on Kendra, not knowing that she’s a witch. In retaliation, she curses Kyle by turning him into an unattractive, hairless version of himself, leaving him totally isolated. But things start to look up when he meets and falls in love with his former classmate, Lindy.
