Vidar is a sex-repressed man who seeks help from a Psychologist to help him with his uncontrollable urges. As the title suggests, he is a vampire who lusts the blood of young, beautiful women. The trailer starts in a patient session, and travels through time in flashbacks as Vidar tells his story.
The trailer clips unravel from calm to bizarre. From serious to bland, but dark humor. Comedy standpoint is subtle and crude. Practical effects look minimal, but it works for the tone of the story which appears to take a parallel approach. The film strikes me as non-conventional, with the trailer in mind, and taking into consideration other vampire-themed productions.
VampyrVidar is coming off an incredible festival run. It debuted at The Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund, with a U.S. premiere at Filmquest, and went on to play at Screamfest in Los Angeles, Fantasy Film Festival in Germany, Fantastic Fest, Monsters of Film, Panic Film Festival, the Brussels International Fantasy Film Festival, and most recently at Fantaspoa.
