Branko Tomovic‘s arthouse horror film Vampir has been picked up for distribution by Reel Suspects, Variety reports. The outlet also shared the first image from the film.
The European film was inspired by real vampire cases that occurred in Serbia in the 1700s. Filmed in English in Siberia, Vampir stars Gorica Regodic (Next to Me), Joakim Tasic (Santa Maria Della Salute), and Eva Ras (Love Affair, The Case of the Missing Switchboard Operator)
In the film, “After witnessing a crime in London and looking for a place to hide for a while, Arnaut (played by Tomovic) is offered a job by charming yet ruthless local Vesna (Regodic) to look after a cemetery in a small remote village in Serbia. He soon starts to have nightmarish visions and is frequently visited by the mysterious older woman Baba Draga (Ras) who guides Arnaut into the darkness. Only the village priest (Tasic) seems to be trying to keep him safe from the sinister intentions of the villagers.”

Our film is inspired by the real vampire cases that occurred in Serbia in the early 1700s,” Tomovic says. “Those were the origin of vampires. Though Vampir is set in modern times, it’s based on those myths, superstitions and folk elements.


Produced by Milos Z. Vuckovic, Jean-Louis Alexandre, and Dina Vickermann, the film’s score was created by Award-winning composer Mark Ashworth (ABCs of Death, Entity). It is a UK-Serbian-German co-production.
