Vampir Cuadecuc Blu-Ray

Vampir Cuadecuc Blu-Ray
Made during General Franco's regime, Pere Portabella's extraordinary Vampir Cuadecuc was filmed on the set of Jess Franco's shocker El Conde Dracula (Count Dracula) starring Christopher Lee, Herbert Lom and the exquisite Soledad Miranda. Filmed in stark black and white, this experimental 'making of' documentary transforms the myth into a powerful metaphor for bloodthirsty fascism, with Dracula as the dictator who feeds on his people. Dispensing almost entirely with dialogue, Portabella relies on an abstract, fabulously idiosyncratic soundscape created by renowned Carles Santos. Banned after completion, Vampir Cuadecuc remains a provocative, subversive and surreal experience.
