Presentation of Vampyr (1932) 

Clara Sánchez

"Vampyr" (1932) is a film in which its director, Carl Dreyer, probably wanted to move more than to show. It gets deep into the nightmare, into terror and psychological fear, through a game of lights, shadows, creepy melodies and transparencies accompanied by a minimalist dialogue which reminds us of Dreyer’s sign painter days and which creates: "a daylight dream", personified in the figure of the vampire. A misunderstood film in its premiere, but with a modern, likable, suitability.
