I'm buggered if I know.

A Full-Blooded Revamp! *chuckle*
6 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This glorious tale of Ripley the Vampyr, a gorgeous, but deadly creature of the night, performed in a lavish Opera originally written by Heinrich Marschner. This BBC production is out of print, but you can find it on Amazon and Ebay.

Even if you don't think you'll like opera, director Nigel Finch gives us an a great story told through music. The story has some sexual scenes, and some violence. But Ripley the Vampire has a debt to pay, lest Satan recall him back to the Underworld.

The Vampire Ripley has a big problem: he has to kill "three lost souls in three short days!" Ripley's master, "The Lord Of Darkness" will call him back to underworld if he doesn't deliver those innocent souls. All that and coping with the modern world. Omar Ebrahim as Ripley is brilliant!
