Robyn C. Miller is better known as the director of classic video games Myst and Riven but here takes the mantle of director, writer and star. The film itself is a mockumentary that follows Augustus Gladstone (Robyn C. Miller) a man who believes he is immortal. A man who believes he is a vampire.
The background to the film paints the picture of Augustus producing YouTube videos that have gained some popularity and thus led the documentary crew to adopt him as their topic and yet opens with his gravestone. It adds a cyclic element to the story.

I’m going to say you should watch the film yourself and decide; a bittersweet affair to be sure and certainly unusual. 8 out of 10. Be warned that it is on the art-house side of vampire movies and thus might not be for everyone, but for those intrigued the home page is here and the imdb page is here. The film is on demand at vimeo.
