The dark mythology of vampires is one that people have been fascinated with for centuries. While the popular Twilight saga may have caused many to believe that these blood-sucking fiends are merely a “fad” for fictional works today, they would be shocked to know that the sensationalized love story was just another tale to put into the vault of other creative works about the creatures.
Only Lovers Left Alive takes on the challenge of entertaining audiences with a dark, vampire romance. Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston take on the roles of two vampires who have been in love with each other for centuries in the new film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. A selection for both Cannes and Sundance, the film seems to be something that will take an edgier approach to the topic that is seemingly becoming clichéd these days.
Only Lovers Left Alive will be in theaters April 11, 2014.
