Help Make Juliet Landau’s A Place Among the Undead Vampire Documentary a Reality
Just about two years we heard that “Buffy” alumna Juliet Landau was working on the feature length documentary A Place Among the Undead, co-directed by her and Deverill Weekes, which will be an exploration of the cultural obsession with vampires and what they reveal about the human psyche. Now, an Indiegogo campaign has been launched with some pretty awesome perks so we thought we’d clue you in on the details.
Here’s the pitch:

Legions of the undead want to be interviewed and are multiplying daily. They are rising from the catacombs of Transylvania to the lovelorn halls of High School. No tombstone should remain unturned!
