This does, however, tend to fall onto vampire filmographies and lead bad-guy Thomas Seaton (William Beckwith) recently made it to a list of the top twenty baddest blood suckers. At this point regular readers will know that I will want to investigate.
The film starts during the time of the Black Death and Seaton, a priest, renounces God for Lucifer/Satan (the names are used interchangeably it seems).

|William Beckwith as Thomas Seaton|
Why not? His powers are infernally bestowed (this sometimes happens with vampires as well, I realise, but in this case it seems he is simply a priest of an infernal religion) there is no indication of blood drinking on his part. All in all I’d have to say that this is Not Vamp. The imdb page is here.
