"Pere Portabella’s remarkable VAMPIR CUADECUC is almost impossible to classify... it’s the Bram Stoker novel as we have never seen it before, focused through the intoxicating prism of cinema at its most experimental [...] while the score by Carles Santos is a treat of contemporary music in itself"


Tom Birchenough at The Arts Desk on Portabella's experimental masterpiece.

Sounds like it’d play well with Franco’s final completed film, Al Pereira vs Alligator Ladies, at once a film and an essay on the making of itself. A quite remarkable piece of work that keeps slipping between film and DVD Special feature, in which you are required to pay attention and constantly reevaluate your relation to the film.

Was surprised this isn’t being sold on the Arrow site, by the way.

Keen to find out if I actually like Vampir, Cuadecuc, as some feel it’s patronising toward Franco’s Dracula adaptation.

It was, but the Second Run catalog available there has been diminishing over the past few weeks. I assume they'll have the full catalog available once the site relaunches and it's just a temporary thing though.

"A genuinely unnerving piece of abstract art... As a deconstruction, as a tone poem, as an accompaniment and as a piece of standalone experimental film, Vampir is a fascinating work, and Second Run’s region-free Blu-ray is a stacked release"

Think it’s due to Arrow moving their warehouse and getting a new website.
