Vampyr, directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer, is a 1932 black-and-white German fantasy horror movie that was inspired by Carmilla, an 1872 Gothic novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. While traveling around France, adventurer and supernatural buff Allan Grey (Julian West) decides to stay at an inn just outside of Paris located next to a mysterious castle in a small village. During his stay, Allan discovers that the village is rife with strange happenings and finds evidence of vampires. He also becomes acquainted with Der Schlossherr (Maurice Schutz), Lord of the Manor, who gives him a book entitled "History of Vampires" and asks him to look after his two daughters, Leone (Sybille Schmitz) and Gisele (Rena Mandel). When Der Schlossherr is murdered and Leone is struck with a strange illness, thought to be anemia, the village doctor (Jan Hieronimko) asks Allan to donate some blood. Allan is left weak and begins to have torturous hallucinations. He then realizes that Leone has been infected by a vampire and that he only has 24 hours to save her.moreless
