Short film: Vampire (2017)

Made for Crypt TV at just over 3-minutes I really don’t see how I can avoid spoiling this one. Sorry folks. But it is a neat bit of nonsense, released in 2017 and directed by Joshua Giuliano.

A man (Jacob DeMonte-Finn) sits in a treatment room, there is a sign that says Give Blood and a dead cockroach on the floor. A nurse (Alyssa Tyson) bustles in, stepping on the cockroach, and hands him a clipboard. He (presumably) signs a release, and she straps him to the chair across the chest and at the wrists.


She then fits a canular into his arm and hands him a squeezy toy, which she instructs him to squeeze. He does so as blood is drawn from his body into a bag. She leaves but we see a door behind inch open. The man eventually notices the fact that the tube is moving. He looks to the other side and in his periphery sees…


Well, of course it is a vampire (Alan Maxson), sucking on the tube. But I love the way the vampire has been visualised. Deathly white, sores across the back and a monstrous visage, he seems animalistic and dangerous. I’d like to see more of these vampires, I’d like to know more about the set up here. As for you, dear reader, if you want to know if he escapes then watch on…
