Dir. Carl Theodor Dreyer Denmark 1932 73 mins (PG)
Julian West, Maurice Schutz
The classic vampire story based on the book by Sheridan Le Fanu and not Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Dreyer takes the tale into dark, nightmarish corners of the mind. Beautifully restored for the 90th anniversary of its release, with visually stunning off-kilter camera angles, Vampyr invents its own cinematic language and has not been seen in this quality for decades. Its power to disturb is undiminished.
