Vampyr

Dir: Carl Theodor Dreyer
Cast: Julian West, Maurice Schutz, Rena Mandel
75mins   1932   Germany   PG   German   

A brand new 2K restoration of one of the finest and most enduringly mysterious of all horror films.

The first foray into sound filmmaking by one of cinema's pivotal artists, Vampyr remains a cornerstone work of the horror genre. A 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. It remains an unparalleled evocation of the uncanny.

'Vampyr is perhaps the most effective and most radical Surrealist movie ever made' - Richard Brody, New Yorker
