Our Monster Mash Up continues to trundle along this Halloween as we crack out the coffin, dig out the soil, and stare into the mouldy hypnotic face of the Vampire, where we’ll analyse the common themes of vampy movies and celebrate the greatest and most outré entries that this popular sub genre has to offer. Kev Gilvear has chosen the two classics that we’ll concentrate on this episode: The first being Carl Theodore Dreyer’s often overlooked Vampyr, a film that uses surreal, dreamlike imagery to eerie effect. Next up is Ricky Lau’s Mr. Vampire, the fun Chinese hopping vampire movie that introduced a very particular species of vampiric living dead to Western audiences.

Episode 38 contributors: John White (host), Matt Shingleton, and Kev Gilvear

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help.
