Interview with the Vampire director Neil Jordan returns to the genre with the highly anticipated vampire flick Byzantium starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Riley and Saoirse Ronan. Set for its premier this week at TIFF we get this very cool clip which shows a vampire’s undeniable urge to drink human blood. Normally I stay away from clips of movies I’m excited to see but this film has been so under the radar that I had to share it with you guys.
In the film, “Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.”
Check out the clip below.

Haven’t heard of this film, but it sounds good 😀
Wow, that was an awesome clip. I’ll definitely be adding this to my list.
Yea I’m really excited to see Byzantium, it’s a new take on the vampire genre so that’ll be nice!
SOOOOoooo, whens it scheduled for release? Seems like it’s been stalled ever since IFC got hold of the rights.
You’re right about that, since IFC picked it up the date has and still is TBD.
