Vampyr

Vampyr ★★★★

Return of the Criterion Channel #55
Another great film from Carl Th. Dreyer. A simple yet macabre tale.

The performances are good. The effects are amazing for their time. The cinematography is stellar, being both revealing and closed in. Though it definitely feels like a silent film that was hastily changed into sound at the last minute. A lot of scenes also only exist to show off the effects.

Still, it’s a good, chilling watch that looks better than it did 90 years ago.
