Trivia:
In 1816, Lord Byron, Percy and Mary Shelley, Claire Clairmont and John Polidori gathered at the Villa Diodati on Lake Geneva, Switzerland, in the fabled "haunted summer," which has been depicted in several movies. In a drug- and alcohol-induced frenzy, they engaged in a contest to see who could write the best ghost story. Mary Shelley produced "Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus." Byron began a vampire story but abandoned it out of boredom. Polidori picked it up and created "The Vampyre" (the forerunner to Bram Stoker's "Dracula"), whose title character, Ruthven, was modeled on Byron. Jonny Lee Miller portrayed the character named Ruthven in "Byzantium." Coincidentally, he portrayed the title role in the biopic "Byron."See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Eleanor:My story can never be told. I write it over and over, wherever we find shelter. I write of what I cannot speak: the truth. I write all I know of it, then I throw that pages to the wind. Maybe the birds can read it.

Vampires. But not as we know them!, 12 April 2013
Author: roly-658-867983 from United Kingdom

I have just seen this film as part of the famous Bridport Film Festival called "From page to screen". It features films that have been adapted from books and are very often accompanied, either before or after the screening, by a question and answer session with either the Director, Producer or Author etc. Bridport is in the county of Dorsetshire in the United Kingdom. This pre-release screening of Byzantium was enhanced by a very informative Q&A with the Producer Stephen Woolley. If you are expecting fangs, crucifixes, coffins and garlic prepare to be surprised! These vampires are a new take on a familiar theme. Much of the film is shot on location in the seaside town of Hastings which gives it a fabulously grungy and stark atmosphere. I have to admit that I didn't really want to go and see "another" vampire film. Believe me when I say that this is not just "another" vampire film.
