Horror Seekers Get a Big Dose of Scary in Upcoming Vampire Film

If you’re one of those horror lovin’ vampire fans thoroughly disgusted by the overabundance of squishy romance films like Twilight and shows featuring love-struck high school vampires, then you’re going to be thrilled to hear that there’s an Australian film titled The Caretaker that is packed full of gore and violence.

As you can see in the trailer below this horror flick is based on a very shaky agreement between a vampire and human family. Yeah, it’s not going to work out well for them seeing how the vamp isn’t some guilt-ridden sweetheart, but rather a bloodthirsty beast.

Here’s the trailer:

Looks like a well made scare-the-hell-out-of-you movie.

The film is directed by Tom Conyers and stars Tom Conyers, Anna Burgess, Colin MacPherson, Lee Mason and Clint Dowdell.

For more info on this film check out the official The Caretaker website or The Caretaker Facebook page. The producers are currently submitting The Caretaker to film festivals and seeking distribution. So there’s no word yet on when the film will be available to all.


“A plague of vampirism has swept across the world. A small but discordant group of survivors hole up in a country mansion. They soon discover that a vampire also shares the house with them. He proposes a deal: They protect him during the day from other humans, and he’ll protect them at night from other vampires. So begins an uneasy alliance, which soon threatens to fall apart.”

Here’s a look at The Caretaker poster:

    Sounds like an interesting take on an I Am Legend-type scenario.

    I think it’s good to have a variety of vamp types in terms of personality, appearance, origins, and traits; that lends itself to a greater variety of stories. Besides, I think ‘vamps as potential boyfriend material’ (Buffy/Angel, Blood Ties, Moonlight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries) has already peaked. Then again, there’s Tim Burton’s upcoming Dark Shadows.
