“Feels like an episode of DARK SHADOWS that was directed by Czech New Waver Václav Vorlícek after watching Carl Dryer’s VAMPYR fifteen times in a row.”— Joseph A. Ziemba, BLEEDING SKULL!
CUADECUC, VAMPIR can be described as an experimental documentary about the making of Jess Franco’s COUNT DRACULA by filmmaker Pere Potrabella. But it’s more than that. A striking film on its own, this movie is a dreamy, intoxicating mood piece that combines nightmarish imagery with candid footage of stars Christopher Lee, Soledad Miranda, and Jess Franco.
