VAMPIRES 19 • Byzantium (2012) + Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

A deep dive into two arthouse darlings' takes on vampiric noughties ennui.

Joining us is special guest and vampire expert Dr. Sorcha Ní Fhlainn to discuss Neil Jordan's second vampire film Byzantium and Jim Jarmusch's arthouse take on vampiric ennui Only Lovers Left Alive (2013).

Byzantium (2012) from 00:04:27
Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) from 00:32:08

If you want to explore the vampire more, we recommend Ní Fhlainn's books Postmodern Vampires and the short story collection Visions of the Vampire: Two Centuries of Immortal Tales.

This season is made possible with the support of Arrow Video. This week's pick is the excellent follow-up to Hitchcock's classic, Psycho II

Produced and presented by Anna Bogutskaya.
