Vampyr: Der traum des Allan Gray
Let Danish auteur Dreyer take you on a hypnotic and beautiful gothic adventure.
Dir Carl Theodor Dreyer
With Julian West, Maurice Schutz, Rena Mandel
As one of two very different vampire pictures released within a year of each other, this is an interesting companion piece to Tod Browning’s commercially successful Dracula. Here, Danish auteur Dreyer offers a different, more experimental take on the vampire story. His first sound film was shot in three languages on location and uses soft focus to enhance the atmosphere and make for a delightfully unsettling viewing experience.
