Rare Vampire Films at YBCA
If you were into vampires long before the new, sparkly, abstinent breed came along, then you’ve surely been yearning for a taste of the dingier, old-school blood suckers. This Saturday and Sunday, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts will be screening Carl Theodore Dreyer’s, 1932 classic, 'œVampyr' to satiate all your undead needs. The website summarizes:
Unquestionably one of the greatest vampire films, Vampyr is the tale of a student of the occult who is confronted by the presence of a mysterious evil in a village outside of Paris. A totally uncompromising filmmaker, Dreyer creates an overwhelming atmosphere of dread, with austere, deliberately obscured imagery and an unsettling, unstable narrative.
I love me a good horror movie, and while mummies are more my thing (NOT zombies. NEVER zombies.), everyone needs a 78-year-old blood sucker in their lives every now and then.
