  2. John Thompson Says:

    I saw Dreyer’s VAMPYR in the early 60’s It didn’t look like any other movie I’d seen & at first the story had no sense. The images I saw were as strange to me as they were to the young man on screen. Having read Le Fanu’s CARMILLA didn’t help because the movie plot contained only a few strands of the story. What the film seemed to be about is the horrible sense of dread that are a feature of Le Fanu’s stories. Many of the images were so unexpected they actually shocked. During the heyday of revival houses in NYC the film played only 2 or 3 times. At the end of the released version the vampire’s aide drowns in newly milled wheat. It’s a startling image. Le Fanu had a recurring nightmare in which he was caught in a house about to fall in on him. When he died a doctor friend who signed the death certificate, seeing the horror on the corpse’s face, remarked that the house must have finally collapsed. I wonder if Dreyer knew this.
