If you were a fan of New Zealand’s 2014 indie darling What We Do in the Shadows, we have a very strong suspicion that you’re going to dig the hell out of Vidar the Vampire, which is coming to VOD platforms and DVD from our Dread Central Presents label next week! Keep an eye out on Epic’s website for order options.
“Vidar the Vampire is about a 33 year-old, sexually frustrated bachelor farmer who leads a monotonous Christian life on his mother’s farm, located on the outskirts of Western Norway. In a desperate attempt to break free of his shackles, Vidar prays to the Lord to grant him a life without boundaries. Instead, he wakes up as the Prince of Darkness!”
“Signing with Dread Central Presents simply felt like coming home,” says co-writer, co-director and star Thomas Aske Berg. “It is the perfect place for freaks and geeks, and a place where thinking outside the box is praised rather than feared. We knew from our very first meeting with Robert Galluzzo that this is where Vidar belongs.”
“The goal with the Dread Central Presents label has always been about diversity,” explained Director of Distribution Robert Galluzzo, “and to shine the spotlight on unique and completely different genre films than what’s already out there. VIDAR is the perfect, quirky, and hilarious addition to our slate and we’re excited for people to watch and laugh along.”
