Those of you looking forward to Neil Jordan's return to the vampire genre with BYZANTIUM will be happy to know that the flick is headed for shelves this October. It's really a great film and an solid addition to the genre that I think a lot of people are going to dig. Jordan's work behind the camera is absolutely masterful as he tells a classic tale of what it's like to be truly cursed. It's definitely more of the slow-burn variety but if you like your vampire flicks the old fashion way, you'll certainly want to give this one a shot.
Out on Blu-ray/DVD on October 29th, Neil Jordan's BYZANTIUM stars Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Sam Riley, Caleb Landry Jones, Jonny Lee Miller and Danny Mays. You can pre-order your copy of the Blu-ray right HERE, or if you're the DVD watching type, click HERE.
On the run for murder, two young "sisters" arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor is shy and innocent. Yet, they both hide the same secrets: They are really mother and daughter, and they are both ... vampires! Eleanor is exhausted by 200 years on the run and desperate to settle down. But little does she know that her mother has been protecting her all of the years from their own kind, "The Brotherhood". To escape them, they must either blend in or continue running away. But just as they think they may have escaped, their past rapidly catches up with them.
