Killer Serials - Les Vampires #4 - The Ghost

Welcome to the Killer Serials on Dieselpunks.

Killer Serials is our segment on Dieselpunks for showcasing cliffhangers and serial thrillers from Hollywood's golden age.

Les VampiresIn November 1915, the walls of Paris were plastered with street posters that depicted three masked faces with a question mark as a noose, and the questions "who, what, when, where?". The morning newspapers printed the following poem:

Of the moonless nights they are kings,
darkness is their kingdom.
Carrying death and sowing terror
the dark Vampires fly,
with great suede wings,
ready not only to do evil... but to do even worse.

 

Written and directed by Louis Feuillade, Les Vampires is a ten part criminal thriller set in Paris, France.


Le spectre (The Ghost) 32 min.
Released on 7 January 1916
