Famed Danish director Carl Th. Dryer's film Vampyr (1932) is among his finest works. Dryer's Vampyr uses a soft focus technique to conjure a hallucinatory dreamscape — or in this case, a nightmare. Allan Grey, a student of the occult, stumbles upon the village of Courtempierre, which has fallen under the curse of a vampire, and becomes entangled in its mystery. Can he save the village from its spell and make it out alive?
The film will be preceded by a short lecture by Linda Lee, folklorist and co-curator of our exhibit, «Poisoned Sleep: Frankenstein and Sleep Paralysis» in tandem with the Rosenbach Museum and Library. Lee will speak about the folklore surrounding the creatures we know as vampires, and the medical conditions that may have contributed to their enduring allure as figures of the night.
