“Seriously, do not Google syphilis.”
Way back in our ninth episode we looked at Interview With The Vampire; now in episode 17 we take a look at his second, more recent vampire film, Byzantium. It’s another course of a toxic, obssessive relationship between two vampires, only this one comes with a mother/child relationships and an examination of vampire society that truly is the upper class feeding on those below.
Instead of an eternity of beauty and wealth, Byzantium is a story about women, survival, and the need to know and tell your own story.
