Christoph: I wait. Endlessly. The persistent expectation of a tilt to the world's axis surpasses even my own logic
Colonel Payton: It tilts every day.
Christoph: And yet, each passing day is the same as the one before.
Colonel Payton: A new night, always, from the birth of the moon and the death of the sun.

"The Sanguinarian", June 5, 2010 Boise, Idaho

"The Sanguinarian", June 5, 2010 Boise, Idaho Jake Freeman

"The Sanguinarian"'s featured character, Christoph, initially appears to be a reluctant vampire. He is handsome, fine-featured and pale and seems uninterested in his more exuberant counterparts. He spends his days (nights) in the Blood Bar and imbibes vintage hemoglobin with an assortment of interesting characters from the past to the present. You may recognize some of them…

Christoph appears to be struggling. He seems to be superior to his fellow fiends, yet confesses his failure and his worthlessness. Maybe he hasn't accomplished everything he wished to do. Everywhere, vampires of every era and predilection whisper in his ear, "Come join us!", but Christoph is different.

Shakespearean-styled dialogue is woven into the movie. Listen carefully. There are choice commentary tidbits that make the plot especially unique.

The story shrouds its mystery until the end. The Sanguinarian's plot stealthily reveals itself using lush, vibrant imagery and allusion. After seeing the film you will find yourself pondering the hidden meanings.

The team who conjured and created 'The Sanguinarian' poured their souls into its production. The tale of its creation could be a movie of its own.

Some people say Vampires don't belong in Boise. Sanguinarians, as seductive and cunning as they are, do no worse than the commercial carnivores who devour their smaller competitors; the financial bloodletting at divorces or funerals; the corporate habit of amputating employees who do good work but don't 'fit' the company profile.

The Vampires ARE here The Sanguinarian has a message for us. The root of evil could be a dormant seed waiting to sprout within any of us. None are immune.
