Synopsis

A film shot behind another! Everything is turned inside out behind the scenes of Jesús Franco’s 1972 mainstream horror film starring Christopher Lee, Count Dracula, as Spanish Pere Portabella turns on-set footage into an abbreviated, self-reflexive and surrealist version of the Count’s story.

Our take

Pere Portabella—master of the avant-garde, politician, and all-around renaissance man, made this mysterious film; which follows Christopher Lee. Shot on the fly in between scenes in the crevices of another films shoot, Vampir is an evocative investigation into narrative, myth, and Spanish cinema.
