[The film conjures] inexplicable dread, on a night that feels brighter than day.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

An often gauzy-gray movie that makes as much use of white as of the traditional horror-movie black, 'Vampyr' is so beautiful to look at, it's hypnotic.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

In psychological effect, beautiful individual shots are contrasted and related one to another as in dreams or emotions rather than logic.

Vampyr might not be much of a vampire movie, but it's one hell of a horror movie. It creates a sense of unease that few films can compete with, casting viewers into a realm where meanings are elusive and terror lies in every shadow.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Almost entirely devoid of the outright thrills associated with the genre, while managing to be one of the creepiest, most unsettling movies you're ever likely to see.

Vampyr is Dreyer's most radical film -- maybe one of my dozen favorite movies by any director.

Vampyr plays like a musty old photo that wakes to jolting life.

Anton Bitel

In a triumph of the irrational, Dreyer's eerie memento mori never allows either protagonist or viewer fully to wake up from its surreal nightmare.

Creative Loafing

The notion of cinema as dreamscape has rarely been realized as exquisitely as in Danish writer-director Carl Theodor Dreyer's moody vampire tale.

remarkable for the way that it explored the occult some 76 years ago.

Tremendously eerie, even more than 75 years later.

An early sound film shot with a distinctive and evocative silent film aesthetic, Vampyr is a horror movie as tone poem.

If you've never seen a Carl Dreyer film and wonder why many critics, myself included, regard him as possibly the greatest of all filmmakers, this chilling horror fantasy is the perfect place to begin to understand.

Penetrates deep into the psyche to carry out its menacing, ethereal lurk.

With the help of Rudolph Maté's luminous photography, Dreyer creates a film of great beauty.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Vampyr plays upon many archetypal fears of modern horror (science, doctors, disease, women, insanity, premature burial), but its power lies in its disorienting visual effects.

Sublimely creepy, and a surrealist surprise from this usually ascetic director.

Carl Dreyer's horror film is one of the most perfect examples of German Stimmung--mood--in the cinema.

This psychological horror tale, one of the first of its kind, is both unique and beautifully luminous.
