Synopsis


A vampire is forced go out every night to separate children from their heads. The reason? His vain wife wants to replace her wrinkled head with one that is young and pretty. How awful! Especially since the lady of the house is never satisfied and the heads keep piling up on the floor. How will our reluctant vampire ever stop this vicious cycle? In a new take on the horror film classics, directors Cédric Louis and Claude Barras create a tale macabre and funny at once. It recalls the bizarre worlds and expressionist landscapes so characteristic of Tim Burton. A feast for the eyes and a treat for the mind!

Claude Barras


Before directing his first feature film, My Life as a Courgette, Claude Barras directed several short films including The Genie in a Ravioli Can, which received numerous awards in film festivals around the world. Claude Barras’s unique connection with childhood transcends time and age differences; he has the rare gift of being able to make you laugh and cry at the same time. His stories are filled with realism and fantasy, humor and poetry. He was the impetus for adapting Gilles Paris’s Autobiography of a Courgette into a stop-motion animation film.
