This unique film is the supreme example of horror sensed rather than seen. A young man spends a night in a lonely inn and suspects that he is surrounded by vampires and has a dream of his own death. No outline of the vague, deliberately confused story can convey anything of the extraordinary atmosphere engendered by Vampyr. In German with English subtitles.
