Olivier Beguin’s Chimeres is a clever vampire film that goes in some unexpected directions. I caught the movie while it was touring the festival circuit and thought it would make a great fit for the VOD selections Shock Till You Drop and The Orchard are partnering to deliver to horror fans.
While on holidays in Romania with his girlfriend Livia, Alexandre is hit by a car. He is rushed to the hospital where he has to undergo a blood transfusion. On his return home he seems to suffer from a strange disease, convinced that contaminated blood runs through his veins. After all isn’t Romania the land of legendary bloodsuckers? Livia faces Alexandre’s increasingly strange behavior and tries to save their relationship at risk.
Jasna Kohoutova and Yannick Rosset star as the couple and genre vet Catriona MacColl even makes an appearance. You should know her from the Fulci classics The Beyond and City of the Living Dead.
You’ll find a handful of pics just past the promo…
