Marking his feature film debut with this twisted cocktail of mythology, horror and vampiristic mayhem, Drew Cullingham’s dark fairytale Umbrage: The First Vampire stars Doug Bradley (of HELLRAISER fame) as Jacob, an unscrupulous antiques dealer who unwittingly unleashes supernatural forces beyond his comprehension.

A night of unmitigated terror lays ahead as Lilith, the mother all of vampires, (played by Natalia Celino) does battle with Phelan (Jonnie Hurn), an Irish gun-toting cowboy turned vampire. Trapped in the middle of this escalating gore war are Jacob, his wife and their wayward daughter, who has fallen under Phelan’s spell…

Cullingham says his about his movie: “The main birth of Umbrage was the cowboy-vampire figure, Phelan. I had for some time been carrying this character around in my head. Mashing horror and western together is not completely original, I know, but I just wanted to cross a cowboy with a vampire. Vampires can sometimes be a little effete, but add a gruff cowboy veneer to that and you have a whole different kettle of fish”.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Tembo: The Badass Elephant, Yakuza Zero and Payday 2.
