Outliving Dracula

Outliving Dracula Movie Poster

Irish writer J.S. Le Fanu's creation, the female vampire Carmilla, has established a fascinating lineage through filmic adaptations, inspiring a more radical and transgressive creative wellspring than her literary successor Dracula.

Made under the Arts Council's Reel Art Initiative, Fergus Daly and Katherine Waugh's engrossing new film explores the influence of Carmilla on generations of filmmakers.

Featuring interviews with leading film scholars and artists influenced by Le Fanu, this film seeks to redefine his critical importance as an Irish writer whose ghostly traces remain profound and enigmatic.
