It's been nearly 20 years since "Interview with the Vampire" took a bite into vampire horror history, now with all the recent success of the same genre, director Neil Jordan returns to sink his teeth with his latest Irish indie horror drama, "Byzantium". In the film, Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan star as mother and daughter vampiresses who secretly try their best to live amongst the humans without feeding on them, which their fellow fanged family members don't feel the exact same way towards lowly humans.
The film co-starring Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller, Daniel Mays, and Caleb Landry Jones, is still seeking a US distributor and release date.
Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.
