LOS ANGELES, October 27, 2015 – Actress, Director and Producer Juliet Landau (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL and Tim Burton’s ED WOOD) is creating the ultimate vampire insider documentary. The film is a “first of its kind” in many ways. It gathers the Who’s Who of the genre, never seen before together in one movie. It also provides a rare perspective. Ever wonder what the undead talk about? Juliet will show you with intimate, revealing interviews with some of the greatest artists of our time.
The project has grown so vast that Juliet has decided to go to Indiegogo to bring the project to un-life. People can become partners in making the project happen by contributing to A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD on Indiegogo here: http://igg.me/at/theundead
“I am beyond exited about this project. It had been percolating for years,” said Juliet Landau. “My husband, Deverill and I were self-funding, but the project has grown beyond our wildest expectations! We have so many more incredible people who want to be interviewed! The response from the fans has been fantastic! I am dying to make the film that they want to see!”
“A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD is an innovative focus on people’s fascination with vampires today,” said famed author Anne Rice.
The movie transcends the traditional idea of a documentary. It is a tapestry with beautiful, interlinking narrative films inspired by the conversations. They are set in New Orleans, London and various locales, covering everything from the catacombs of Transylvania to the lovelorn halls of High School.
Leaving no tombstone unturned, this vampire tapestry weaves together a passionate, avid, active and varied Superfan base.
Already in the can (or should we say coffin!) are interviews with:
