Bela Lugosi's Dead: Vampire Film Festival at BAM

There's a film festival for everyone.  If you're nocturnal and feeling a little anemic, the Brooklyn Academy of Music has got your back.... From now until September 30th, BAM is presenting 33 films exploring the themes of your favorite Gothic anti-hero(ine), the vampire.

The diverse lineup showcases everything "From Lugosi to the lesbian undead, Murnau to Maddin, camp-horror staple to postmodern, society-as-sickness metaphor, the vampire’s reign over popular imagination continues to seduce filmmakers over to the dark side."  You can enjoy guilty pleasure at the campy "Blakula", drool over Eiko Ishioka's costume designs in "Bram Stoker's Dracula", be moved by brutality and innocence at "Let the Right One In"...  

Film stills from Jean Rollins "Le Frisson des vampires",George Romero's "Martin (John Amplas), and Michael Almereyda's "Nadja" (Karl Geary and Elina Löwensohn).
