From the Set: Neil Jordan's Thriller Byzantium

April 8, 2013


Director Neil Jordan triumphantly returns to the vampire genre with a scintillatingly unique take on undead mythology with Byzantium. Starring a radiant Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan as damaged mother and daughter bloodsuckers running a bordello in a seedy seaside guesthouse to escape a secret society hunting them through the centuries, the finely tuned balance of art-house Gothic and Hammer Horror makes for an evocative flashback fairytale using vampirism as a twisted prism to comment on humanity. Remarkably giving a whole new flavor and magical perspective to traditional vampire imagery - no fangs, just sharp thumbnails extending for feeding time, a river of blood denoting the rite of undead passage its a haunting, touching and visually sublime reinvention from the Oscar-winning Irish director of The Company of Wolves and Interview with the Vampire.
