Vampyr (1932)
« on: June 09, 2013, 03:28:00 AM »

Vampyr (AKA: Vampyr Der Traum des Allan Grey) is a 1932 French-German horror film directed by Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer. The film was written by Dreyer and Christen Jul based on elements from J. Sheridan Le Fanu's collection of supernatural stories In a Glass Darkly. Vampyr was funded by Nicolas de Gunzburg who starred in the film under the name of Julian West among a mostly non-professional cast. Gunzburg plays the role of Allan Grey, a student of the occult who enters the village of Courtempierre, which is under the curse of a vampire.

This is such a mesmerizing and beautiful film. One of my all time favourites.

Been a slack Splat and missed this one  :nerdyembarassed:

Have to say the imagery here has me mesmerized like a victim the the gaze of a vampires um gaze  :nerdyembarassed: The black and white looks beautiful and certain films benefit so much from this. Seriously need to explore a lot of these films more. Quite a few have this imagery about them that are so amazing to say the least.

If and when I get Thee Chance i shall check this wonder of an earlier time out!

J. Sheridan Le Fanu should get more credit than f'king Stephenie Meyer.   :cantlook: What a cruel world.

I tried getting into this but it's so slow and boring (for me).  I respect it, though.  I'd rather watch Nosferatu.   :cool2:

Agreed! That film I added was the longer of the two there, unsure why to be honest. Maybe a different cut or there could be extras at the end.

I have a feeling there is a Criterion for this; I could be wrong though.

Yes, there is indeed a Criterion DVD for this one.

Yeah; I knew I'd seen some of those stills before; and thought it was from when I was creeping around the Criterion site.
