As mysterious deaths plague a small American prairie town, eight year-old Seth comes to believe that the pale, reclusive widow living next door (Lindsay Duncan) is a vampire. Seth’s worst nightmare comes true when his older brother Cameron (Viggo Mortensen) returns home from abroad and falls in love with the widow – will he be next? The truth is much more shocking than Seth could imagine.
Written and directed by Philip Ridley (Heartless) and hauntingly photographed by Oscar-nominee Dick Pope (Mr Turner), the film caused a sensation at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival, went on to win eleven international awards, and has amassed an ever-growing cult following ever since.
