Australian director Jon Hewitt, who broke onto the scene with his Toronto International Film Festival selection Acolytes, has released an unsettling promo video for his next genre films.
Starring Belinda McClory, Vampyr begins when “A successful TV-news anchor disappears and is found a week later with no memory and shockingly brutalized. Dismissed by authorities and colleagues as just another date-rape, her life gradually unravels in a growing obsession with mystery, truth and retribution.
Is the assailant someone close, or is it something altogether more sinister and supernatural? Swallowed by the madness of alienation, she will come to know the shocking truth of her torment and embrace the darkness that inhabits the realm of vengeance.”
