Carl Theodor Dreyer mesmerized audiences with Vampyr, the next film in our Sight & Sound & Screams series.
A traveller named Allan Gray (Nicolas de Gunzburg) arrives at a countryside inn seemingly beckoned by haunted forces. His growing acquaintance with the family living there soon opens up a network of associations between the dead and the living, which pulls him into an unsettling mystery. At its core: the troubled, chaste daughter Gisèle (Rena Mandel).
Known to be Dreyer's first sound film, Vampyr intoxicates with its atmospheric tone and imagery.
