Get Ready for VAMPIR!

A Serbian film (no not *that* Serbian film; I wouldn’t touch *that* one with a ten-foot pole if I were wearing latex gloves!) focusing on real-life vampire legends, set in the part of the world where the vampire originated? Hells yeah! Directed by Branko Tomovic, VAMPIR is headed to Cannes before hopefully getting wide release.

Here’s the synopsis: “After witnessing a crime in London and looking for a place to hide for a while, Arnaut (Branko Tomovic) is offered a job by charming yet ruthless local Vesna (Gorica Regodic) to look after a cemetery in a small remote village in Serbia. He soon starts to have nightmarish visions and is frequently visited by the mysterious older woman Baba Draga (Eva Ras) who guides Arnaut into the darkness. Only the village priest (Joakim Tasic) seems to be trying to keep him safe from the sinister intentions of the villagers.” And said Tomovic: “Our film is inspired by the real vampire cases that occurred in Serbia in the early 1700s. Those were the origin of vampires. Though VAMPIR is set in modern times, it’s based on those myths, superstitions and folk elements.” Sounds exciting!
