Only Lovers Left Alive: First Look - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies Monday, September 9, 2013

This Undead Monday, we take a First Look at the unlikely vampire satire in critically acclaimed indie film-maker Jim Jarmusch's latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive. 

Forget Twilight. The vampire genre is arguably irrevocably damaged by Stephanie Meyer's vampire fantasy romance novel series-turned-Hollywood film franchise, and many has been pondering what would have to be done to uplift the current state of one of the most popular folkloric monsters. 

In Only Lovers Left Alive, Tilda Swinton effortlessly pointed out the problem by blaming on "Shelly, Byron, and those French assholes I used to hang around with". Directed by acclaimed indie film-maker Jim Jarmusch who described the film as a "‘crypto-vampire love story’, set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers", Only Lovers Left Alive features Tom Hiddleton as Adam, a Detroit-based rockstar who is losing his touch with the modern world and Swinton as Eve, his long-lost love, Eve. Having nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, the vampire romance comedy has received a wave of positive response thus far. What we have read thus far is a clever stab at the genre and with talents the like of Hiddleton and Swinton, this might just be one for fans of the vampire genre.

There isn't a trailer available, but two scenes from the film (collected in one clip) has been made available online thus far. 
Hit the jump to check out them out.

The posters released thus far.
