Stay with him and you'll be rewarded with one of the more-unusual horror films you'll ever see -- or films of any kind, for that matter.
October 6, 2013
A singular masterwork.

August 21, 2013
[The film conjures] inexplicable dread, on a night that feels brighter than day.
February 17, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
January 6, 2011
In psychological effect, beautiful individual shots are contrasted and related one to another as in dreams or emotions rather than logic.
July 23, 2009
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 92/100
September 24, 2008
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.

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.
August 6, 2008
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.

July 28, 2008
Tremendously eerie, even more than 75 years later.

July 22, 2008
An early sound film shot with a distinctive and evocative silent film aesthetic, Vampyr is a horror movie as tone poem.
September 19, 2007
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.
July 4, 2007
Penetrates deep into the psyche to carry out its menacing, ethereal lurk.
