Bram Stoker International Film Festival

It’s that time of year when the Bram Stoker International Film Festival movie playlist is revealed and there really are treats for Vampire Movie fans this year. Whilst there is nothing new for me to explore (baring Dracula’s Phantasmagoria – which isn’t a vampire film as such but an exploration of the environment that surrounded Victorian phantasmagoria, something Stoker would have been well versed in) there are some newer films that I have already seen but not on the big screen and some classics too.

The first film of the festival is Midnight Son, which I scored at 7.5 out of 10. On the Friday we will see both We are the Night (TMtV score of 6.5 out of 10) and the classic the Lost Boys (TMtV score of 8 out of 10).

This year is the 100th anniversary of Bram Stoker’s death and so a version of Dracula was almost a legal necessity. In fact we get two. On the Saturday (and I am most excited about this on the big screen) we get the Spanish version of Dracula (TMtV score of 7.5 out of 10) and the final film of the festival is Dracula (1992) (TMtV score of 8 out of 10).

The Festival runs from 25th – 28th October and the full film listings are here. If you are attending this year then do come and say hi.
