New Film: John Polidori's The Vampyre

The Vampyre by Polidori is a story that I, at some point, really must cover for the Classic Literature section of the blog. Be that as it may I have just discovered that Spanish horror icon Paul Naschy is staring as Lord Ruthven in a short film of the story – directed by Antonio Curado and Alejandro Ballesteros.

No more concrete details at this time, unfortunately, there’s not even an imdb page as of yet - though I believe the shoot is complete. The film is mentioned at the Paul Naschy fan site. There is also a Spanish language blog for the film here.

Hi Taliesin, this is Antonio Curado, director of 'The Vampyre by John. W. Polidori' besides Alejandro Ballesteros. Thanks for your support, man. I'll write you the next days a longer one to tell you about it. A IMDB entry will come soon. The film has been shot and we are working in postproduction now. It's a short movie, but we hope it'll become interesting. You can see a brief clip right here:

Thanks and see ya.

Thanks Antonio. Looking forward to seeing this. The clip is very short but has really piqued my interest.
