‘Bloody Disgusting’ has recently shared the first poster and images from Vurdalak Blood, an upcoming vampire horror from Argentinian filmmaker Santiago Fernandez Calvete, based on Alexi Tolstoy’s short story The Family of the Vourdalak. If this sounds a little familiar to those old school horror buffs among you, it’s because back in 1963 the same short story made up one of the three tales in Mario Bava’s superb anthology chiller Black Sabbath, something which of course immediately piqued my interest.

After killing a vampire, a man returns home during the magic hour, right between day and night, and his family does not know whether he is still a man or has turned into a monster. It is Natalia, his teenage daughter, who finds out he has become a vampire, precisely when her brother is about to leave her to chance and nighttime is just around the corner.

We’re told that the film is still being completed, but that Calvete will be screening a work-in-progress at this year’s ‘Ventana Sur Blood Window’ festival in Beunos Aires next week, which has been a standout event on the Latin horror calendar since its launch in 2013.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
