Vampire's Dilemma

Director:  Edward Pionke

Screenwriter:  Edward Pionke

Genre:  Thriller

 

This essentially complete draft of Vampire’s Dilemma was finished in June 2013. While the story borrows from the vampire mythology, it is in a sense an anti-vampire story in that it has no bats, rats, wolves, fangs, crosses, garlic, wooden steaks, graveyards, etc.

It is the story of a man, The Count, who is finding the gift of interminable life to be a burden. Without the ethereal nature of things to bring them value, life has become tedious and tortuous. What beauty is there in looking at the apple blossoms if there are an unlimited number of springs left in which to see them?

 

With immortality hanging heavily upon him, The Count begins to contemplate suicide. The bestial side of him, however, still clings to life and he is unable to do the deed no matter how devoid of meaning his continued existence has become. He therefore turns to looking for an accomplice that can help him end his days and be released from his curse. He finds a willing soul to help him, but complications arise as members of The Count’s household are not so ready to lose their master.

 

Currently, there are no plans for the production of Vampire’s Dilemma. The screenplay is available for reading. Please see the contacts page of the website if you wish to obtain a copy.
