New Film: Highgate Vampire

Paul W is being a powerhouse when it comes to links. He sent me this link to a trailer for Highgate Vampire.

The synopsis is as follows: “Highgate Vampire tells the story of four American teenagers Cathy, Amy, Salem* and Alex - who all meet on the Internet, and decide to get together for a weekend of fun in London's Gothic Camden Town.

“As they take a guided tour around one of London' s Victorian cemeteries they hide amongst the ancient graves and are locked in for the night. Darkness falls, and mysterious things start to happen as the spirit of the Highgate Vampire takes them over.

“Being a vampire has its challenges, and through the film we watch the characters battle with good and evil, love and hate, and with what it means to have been granted the ultimate power to kill. Be the hunter or the hunted? Now you must decide.”

The trailer looks good – the use of Tool for the music an excellent choice in my book. However nip on over to the official site and you can watch a 4 ½ minute preview that looks very classy indeed.

This is also meant to be a multiplatform event, both as a film and as an online game. More details as they emerge.

*As an aside, and no disrespect to the film, but I find the name Salem amusing as our rather large, rather wolf-like Utonagan puppy is called Salem... so there you go.

It looked very promising until i couldn't find any fangs. That's always a bummer for me.

tray, glad I could let you know about it.

Swish, I understand the fang concern but it does look classy anyway.

The music for the trailer is 'Rise Today' by Alter Bridge not Tool

lydia, I'll take your word for it - though it sounds very tool like in that case

I kid you not it's off the album Blackbird.
That aside the trailer looks fantastic!

I don't take it as a kid - must check it out

Okay there has been confusion let me clarify:

Music on the 4.5 minute preview is Alter Bridge. Not a bad piece of music, not that special imho - but appreciate others like it.

Music on the trailer - Tool, fantastic band, imho.

Hopefully that clarifies things
