Filmmaker, writer and magazine editor Chris (QUEEN OF BLOOD, the upcoming GIRL WITH A STRAIGHT RAZOR) Alexander’s SPACE VAMPIRE is up for pre-sale now from noted indie genre label Darkside Releasing; a deluxe special edition Blu-ray presentation available for a limited time with a collectible slipcase available for $24.99 CAD plus shipping.
The film will officially release and ship on August 17th, 2021, simultaneous with a North American TVOD release with more platforms and territories to be announced in the coming months.
SPACE VAMPIRE is a wholly experimental, multi-media meditation on memory, isolation, identity…and bloodletting. Filmed on a shoestring and completed during the pandemic, SPACE VAMPIRE tells the story of a beautiful leather-clad humanoid (Ali Chappell, NECROPOLIS: LEGION) who walks the earth in a dream. Holing up in a monstrous home by day and prowling the streets by night, the otherworldly woman flits in and out of reality, replaying the grisly murder of her doppelganger (Cheryl Singleton, FEMALE WEREWOLF) while doubting her sanity and the very nature of her existence.
Shedding traditional story structure and shot with camcorders, phones, toy cameras and 16mm film, SPACE VAMPIRE is a singular work of obsessive, existential ideas, images and sounds meant to express concepts of vampirism. Borrowing elements of films like UNDER THE SKIN and LIFEFORCE while still being wholly unique, it’s a psychedelic fever dream that’s propelled by Alexander’s own brooding ambient electronic score.
The special edition Blu-ray release will feature a full commentary by Alexander as well as the SPACE VAMPIRE companion short film OF THE DEAD, starring Chappell as a reborn version of the same character, lost in the afterlife.
Get ready to lose yourself in one of the strangest films of the year. Get ready for SPACE VAMPIRE.
