Film Comment - 07/01/2008
"VAMPYR remains, three-quarters of a century on, one of the most enigmatic tales of bloodlust ever committed to celluloid."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/25/2008
"One of the greatest vampire movies was as much a surrealist experiment as a horror film." -- Grade: A-

Description by OLDIES.com:

Freely adapted from classic Victorian supernatural tales by author Sheridan Le Fanu, Vampyr tells the story of a young man who becomes involved with two sisters, one of whom, wasting away with a strange sickness, turns out to be the victim of a vampire.

In Vampyr Dreyer has transformed Le Fanu's horror tales into a mystic quest, a mediation on the theme of death. The camera is like a sleepwalker, leading us, trancelike, into a labyrinth from which cause and effect have disappeared. The hauntingly sinister atmosphere created is disquieting and unforgettable.

Product Description:

Dreyer's chiaroscuric adaptation of Le Fanu's "Carmilla" follows the harrowing tale of a young man caught up with a dreamlike vampire and her infected family. An early, often astounding horror classic. AKA: "Castle of Doom," "Not Against the Flesh," "The Strange Adventure of David Gray" and "The Vampire."

Description by Image Entertainment:

Freely adapted from classic Victorian supernatural tales by author Sheridan Le Fanu, "Vampyr" tells the story of a young man who becomes involved with two sisters, one of whom, wasting away with a strange sickness, turns out to be the victim of a vampire. Director Carl Theodor Dreyer transformed Le Fanu's horror tales into a mystic quest, a meditation on the theme of death, and neatly fashioned it as an abstract experimental film. The camera is like a sleepwalker, leading us, trancelike, into a labyrinth from which cause and effect have disappeared. The hauntingly sinister atmosphere created is disquieting and unforgettable.

Plot Synopsis:

A stunningly photographed tale of horror, beautifully capturing an aura of fear and otherwordly menace.
A young man stops at an inn, and discovers the village is rife with strange goings-on... murders, sudden illnesses, and weird skulking creatures. Then a doctor asks him to help a desperately sick girl by donating blood, and before long, the weakened wayfarer is lost in hallucinations, imagining himself buried alive... or could it be real'
