Next month, Kino Lorber will bring Les Vampires to Blu-ray. Director Louis Feuillade's highly influential silent serial centers on the titular criminal operation and its mysterious ring-leader, the beguiling-yet-dangerous Irma Vep (Musidora).
From Kino's official synopsis:
"Comprised of ten episodes, and clocking in at nearly seven hours in duration, Les Vampires...follows journalist Philippe Guerande (Edouard Mathe) in his efforts to expose a vast criminal organization known as the Vampires. Joined by a comical sidekick, Mazamette (Marcel Levesque), and often competing against a rival gang lord (Fernand Herrmann), Guerande dethrones a succession of the Vampires' Grand Masters. But most evasive of all is the Vampires' muse, a seductive assassin who performs her job with deadly grace: Irma Vep."
Kino's two-disc Blu-ray set presents all ten chapters in a HD transfer mastered from the Cinémathèque Française's 35mm film restoration. The serial has an aspect ratio of 1.33:1 and a 2.0 stereo track containing a musical score compiled and performed by the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra. Kino has not yet listed any bonus supplements.
Les Vampires is expected to street on August 14th.
