A Haunting Haze

This post was originally published on this site

Few movies ask more of our imaginations than “Vampyr” (1932), directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer, the pre-eminent Danish filmmaker of the 20th century. Technically a talkie, the 73-minute picture is practically a silent in nearly every way, including its scant use of spoken dialogue. In the tradition of the silent horror films that preceded it, “Vampyr” makes its points and chills the air far more by inference than by demonstration, its narrative muddled but its images and atmosphere uncanny and unforgettable. Now the film has made it to Blu-ray, in a lavish edition from Criterion timed to Halloween.

“Vampyr”…
