The first clip from the vampire drama Byzantium has landed online.  Directed by Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire), the film stars Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan as a mother/daughter vampire duo who arrive in a small British town where their secret doesn’t stay kept for long.  This clip is a scene between Ronan and X-Men: First Class star Caleb Landry Jones, and it’s not exactly Twilight.  We see Ronan’s character react in slow motion to Jones dropping a fair amount of his blood on the ground.  It’s a bit haunting, a bit strange, and slightly disturbing, but I’m wholly intrigued.

Hit the jump to take a look.  The film also stars Sam Riley and Jonny Lee MillerByzantium will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, which is currently underway.

Here’s the synopsis for Byzantium:

Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.
