Stars Irma Vep. A crime-drama serial that is said to have inspired the work and career of Alfred Hitchcock. Over six hours of mystery, murder and deception. "The Vampires" are a crime ring and not supernatural beings. Though some imaging lends a spooky look to Vep who dresses in tight black clothing with, at times, bizarre make-up and bat-like cape. A silent film masterpiece in 10 long chapters.
