“Vampyres” : A film returning to dark and haunting folklore

Posted by Dale Townshend on January 21, 2014 in News tagged with

A new independent vampire film is in the making in Austin, Texas to quell the appetite for a return to the terrifying threat that the Vampire used to impose in folklore. Josephine McAdam (a Scottish citizen currently residing in Austin) has teamed up with a group of like-minded artists (Miguel Coronado III, J.R. Zambrano and more: spfx artists, illustrators, and writers) after working for 3 years in the Austin film industry to create the high quality independent film that is driven by story and also serves a market which has been seeking a return to the classic Vampire. Josephine also has plans to bring a continuation of this story to film in Scotland, as an ideal dark and historic setting to follow the lead character, Violet Barany.
The story follows Violet, an orphan who has been plagued by hallucinations her entire life. After accepting that she has been psychologically unstable, she discovers that a homeless man witnesses the same hallucinations as she. Seeking an answer to her troubling adolescence she chases him down to convince him to help her better understand what is happening to her, but when he reveals the meaning of her hallucinations to her, she finds herself dragged into a dark and horrifying world. But why Violet? Why this man?

We’ll be sharing more about “Vampyres” on February 8th, with the release of our teaser and launch of our crowdfunding initiative and a more comprehensive post about what has driven us to create this story and our personal backgrounds/interests in the genre. Until then, more information and concept art can be seen on our facebook page.
We look forward to sharing this story with fellow enthusiasts of the genre, and sharing a tale which conveys the darkness that is the Vampire.
