Synopsis

Adapting the haunted stories of Sheridan Le Fanu, Carl Th. Dreyer's landmark 90 year old masterpiece still delivers a tour-de-force of supernatural phantasmagoria and creeping unease through audacious camerawork and sound design.


The first foray into sound filmmaking by one of cinema's pivotal artists VAMPYR remains a cornerstone work of the horror genre. The dreamlike tale of an occult-obsessed student's visit to a small French village, as he is drawn into the unsettling mystery around a stricken family's struggle with malevolent forces, remains an unparalleled evocation of the uncanny.


Presented in all-new restoration to produce a version as faithful as possible to the original release, the return of VAMPYR to cinema screens is certainly to be celebrated.
