Storyline

Lara (Eleanor Tomlinson) and her estranged father, Dr. Hill (Stephen Rea), travel behind the iron curtain to a decrepit castle outside the Hungarian town of Styria. In the nearby woods, Lara witnesses a car crash. Carmilla, (Julia Pietrucha), escapes from the wreckage as a driver attempts to run her over. When Lara hides this beautiful and mysterious stranger in the castle, the two start an intense and chaotic friendship. As their relationship deepens, the young women of Styria begin to go mad. When local girls are found dead from apparent suicides, Lara wonders if Carmilla is to blame or is there a darker secret behind the mass hysteria destroying the town. Written by Anon

Trivia

How many people know the origins of the vampire legend, and not only the modern vampire stories, which has only been around for about 200 years. The ideas of vampires has been around for far longer. Styria (2014) or "Angels of Darkness" depicts the earlier superstitions of vampires. The house they live in was used as a place for people with consumption, or tuberculosis as we call it now. When people were ill with this, it was thought they were being drained by a "vampire" though that term was never used until later in history. In the movie they dug up the bodies, examined them, then cut off the head and burned the bodies. It was thought that if the body looked fresh, it was enough proof they were a vampire, just like it was shown in the movie when fresh blood came out of the girls mouth. With all the knowledge we have now it sounds crazy that this would ever happen, but it did along with many other gruesome, superstitious rituals . It didn't help that after "patient 0" or "vampire" was cut up and burned, the sick sometimes got better. It's only the odds of surviving, but back then they thought they cured it. Random information, but worth knowing while watching. See more »

Goofs

The car hits the tree hard enough to pop the hood open and dislodge the grill and one headlight, but the chrome bumper is undamaged. That type of bumper is more ornamental than functional and would have been seriously damaged by even a low speed impact. See more »

Seductive mystery that will pull you in and never let go
12 February 2015 | by a-m-iosjpeSee all my reviews

One of the most beautiful cinematic experiences I have had in ages, "Styria" is a film like no other. It is at once a creepy little Gothic romance and a psychological drama - a rich and complex film that flirts with death, guilt and suicide, but does so in such a seductive way that it makes it utterly irresistible. The performances firmly ground the film in an emotional reality, whilst making the ancient metaphors, dreams and nightmares flesh. But like all great films it remains a mystery and far more than the sum of its parts. Like the castle in which the story plays out, "Styria" begs us to return back to it and go deeper, beyond the layers of history and narrative, into something very primal and very beautiful.
