A singular masterwork.

With the help of Rudolph Maté's luminous photography, Dreyer creates a film of great beauty.
November 1, 2004
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.

Dreyer's sublimely arcane hallucination
August 19, 2008
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.

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 22, 2008
An early sound film shot with a distinctive and evocative silent film aesthetic, Vampyr is a horror movie as tone poem.
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.

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