Cuadecuc Vampir

A film by Pere Portabella | 1971 | 66 minutes

A major figure of Spanish cinema, Pere Portabella’s contributions have included a variety of roles (such as co-producing Buñuel’s VIRIDIANA), but most importantly as the director of a number of groundbreaking films from the 1960s and 1970s. Filmed on the set of Franco’s cult film COUNT DRACULA starring Christopher Lee, VAMPIR-CUADECUC mixes making-of footage with an investigation into the figure of the vampire. Both playful and deadly serious, with high-contrast black-and-white cinematography and an electronic soundtrack, “it is a film within a film, a discourse within a discourse, in other words, a ‘bloodsucking film’ of another.” (Portabella) New 2K Restoration

“My favorite Portabella film. A masterpiece. Recalling without imitating such classics as NOSFERATU and VAMPYR, the film uses high-contrast cinematography to evoke the dissolution and decay that strikes viewers who see those films today in fading prints… One of the most beautiful movies ever made about anything.”
— Jonathan Rosenbaum

“A hypnotic 1970 deconstruction of a Christopher Lee vampire film directed by that other and quite opposite pillar of the Spanish cinema, the exploitation specialist Jess Franco.”
— Dave Kehr, The New York Times
