Vampyr

1h 15m Horror, Silent 1932

Danish filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer’s singular foray into the horror genre is a masterclass in foreboding and quiet disorientation about a student of the occult who encounters supernatural haunts and evil-doers in a village outside of Paris.

It was the director’s first sound film but uses very little dialogue so much of the story is told with title cards like a silent film. [Restored version]

“Perhaps the most effective and most radical Surrealist movie ever made.” ~The New Yorker

“Dreyer’s most radical film - maybe one of my dozen favorite movies by any director.” ~J. Hoberman, Village Voice
