Behind-the-Scenes Footage of Shunji Iwai’s VAMPIRE

     June 4, 2010


Japanese writer/director Shunji Iwai will make his English-language feature debut with the generically titled Vampire, and today we have a behind-the-scenes look at the Vancouver, Canada production.  Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl) stars as a schoolteacher with a taste for blood who seeks out his female victims on a website for the suicidal.  The supporting cast includes Amanda Plummer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Kristen Kreuk, and Oscar-nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes.

Something about the combination of the subject material, the superficial “ET Canada” presentation format, and the ultra-nice-guy aura of Zegers really unnerved me during my viewing — I think that means they’re doing something right.  Check out the footage after the jump.
