Cuadecuc, vampir

Pere Portabella Spania, 1971

msmichel's rating of the film Vampir

Portabella's avant-garde film is a b&w exercise that removes sound from the equation and replaces it with white noise and effects yet still somehow achieves its purpose in its adaptation of the Stoker classic. The footage was shot on the set of Franco's 'Dracula' being made for Hammer at the time yet even with glimpses of crew and such our familiarlity with the source material still makes this a fascinating watch.
