Release date: 1982*
*The film, which is of Swiss origin I believe, does not have an IMDb page at the time of writing this article. The copyright is listed as 1982 and 2014 and so I have used the former as the release date. Of course it is always great to find obscure new films (even if they are old) but this one doesn’t have an overtly vampire aspect.
Rather it uses vampirism as a metaphor for the other – which is one of the strongest tropes found in the media vampire. It is also a very arty film, it unashamedly draws its feel and inspiration from Vampyr and actually dedicates the film to Dreyer.
