Looking for something to watch in between Vampire Diaries’ episodes? Something to tide you over until True Blood returns? Then you’ve got to check out Blood and Bone China, a twelve part Victorian vampire web series. The series was created and directed by award winning film-maker Chris Stone and takes viewers into a world of loss and bloodlust. The episodes are around 5-10 minutes long and are being made as part of the Stoke Your Fires film festival.
From the official Blood and Bone China website:
“It is 1897 and a city is in turmoil. In the smoky, dirty depths of middle England, the people are terrified. The once bustling streets of Stoke are empty, the silence is only broken by the whispers of devils, demons and vampires. Poor souls are being taken, vanishing without a trace.’
‘When the local doctor is snatched away, word travels to his brother, a young vet by the name of Newlyn Howell. Spurred on to discover the truth by the enigmatic Alexander Pyre, Newlyn’s dark adventure into the depths of Victorian Stoke begins… and what he discovers is beyond belief.”
The best part about the story is that it’s inspired by not only myths and legends, but actual historical events as well. According to the website, one of the episodes is based on a real documented vampire case, and director Chris had the opportunity to review the original police files and interview the people involved. This definitely isn’t your average web series, that’s for sure.
To watch the episodes just head over to their website to view each chapter.
