Dead But Dreaming (2013)
A vampire film with “altitude”.
The year is 1805, the city of Nuestra Señora de La Paz lives in fear of an invasion from the indigenous population, and – within its walls – a rebellion is brewing against the Spanish crown. If this were not enough, a beautiful vampire is terrorizing the population, leaving a bloodbath in her wake.
A young Irish spy, on a mission for the rebels, is found near the body of a victim. She is captured, accused of the murders, publicly flogged and sentenced to die by garrote.
Wishing to aid in the rebellion, a novice nun is prevented from following in the spy’s footsteps by her uncle – a Franciscan priest – who believes she should help him instead to combat the “demons” plaguing the city.
