El vampiro with Cronos
El vampiro with Cronos
El vampiro (The Vampire)
A young woman returns to her hometown only to find that it is threatened by vampires led by the ominous Count Karol de Lavud, who is keen to take over her family’s property and steal her soul. This lauded tale of bloodlust stands as the cinematic bridge between the Hammer Film Productions and Universal Pictures cinematic interpretations, cementing the horror credentials of actor-producer Abel Salazar, debuting Spanish film actor Germán Robles, and helmer Fernando Méndez.
An antiques dealer discovers an ancient device that opens the doors to immortality and awakens the user to an uncontrollable bloodlust. Going against the conventions and expectations of a film industry that belittled the wonders of national fantasy and horror, Guillermo del Toro proved everyone wrong with his feature film debut which announced to the world the arrival of a new talented horror director who would eventually flourish into a genre patron saint.
Join us in a ritual ceremony of resurrection at the Academy Museum on October 6, 2022, at 6pm. Come celebrate the launch of the film series Mexico Maleficarum. Tickets to this screening include access to a community reception where visitors can enjoy complimentary tortas and tacos by Tortas Chago, beverages, and entertainment by Catrina Andante from 6pm to 7:30pm in the Ted Mann Theater Lobby.
