Synopsis


“The Sanguinarian”, an independent feature film, is a character study of Christoph, a suicidal vampire. Ambitious. Austere. Hypnotic. Writhing under the weight of a depression that would wrench the very bones of any other.

His journey through the blood law and sexual congress of his surreal world is a sensual ride, filled with stunning visual beauty, haunting music, and powerful lines. Is he destined to be the architect of his own destruction?

We have a completed film, with a dedicated fan base. It has the potential to become the kind of well-known cult classic that film professional and lay public alike re-watch and refer to. We need help getting it out there. Getting it in to festivals. Getting it shown. Yes film festivals are expensive to enter and all funds raised will go directly to help this film get seen!

Please read this wonderful film review from the UK: http://taliesinttlg.blogspot.com/2010/07/sanguinarian-review.html

THE CURSE: In the course of this, we ran into a number of very serious roadblocks, compounded, prolonged and, in some cases, quite tragic. A particular piece of clothing figures prominently in the story, shipped in from Germany. As a military antique. And when an object has lain in the hands of demons, well,…

BREAK THE CURSE! (warning - spoilers): We chose that piece of clothing because of the -real- story being told by the film, as revealed in the final shot: the Holocaust. The story serves as a literal and visual metaphor for the terrible seductive power of those who destroyed so many lives. Although the film appears to be about vampires, it is really about the nature of true evil. About real monsters.
