Live From Memphis visits Daylight Fades set

E-mail Print PDF

Memphis music, film and arts organization Live from Memphis was on the set of Daylight Fades recently and filed a report titled “Vampires of the Bluff”:

“Neither Ellis nor writer Allen Gardner set out to make a ‘typical’ vampire movie. “I had been wanting to do a vampire movie since I was 11, and The Lost Boys was the reason why,” says Gardner. “This really isn’t a horror film. It’s a character-driven drama with supernatural undertones.” Ellis, who studied director John Carpenter’s less-is-more technique to prepare for this movie, says he is not interested in brooding anti-heroes and swooning heroines. “I’m not a particular fan of the vampire genre, which is why I thought that coming into this with a fresh eye would be a good thing,” he says. “They’re not figures of horror, or dark knights, or evil creatures. They’re saddled with this affliction that they can’t shake. We’re treating it kind of like how an alcoholic deals with his substance abuse.” Imagining vampires as real-world phenomenon rather than supernatural monsters meant raising some rather uncomfortable questions. “There’s the immortality thing, which certainly everyone has thought of,” says Gardner. “But that comes in conjunction with a moral dilemma. Are you willing to kill others to sustain your own life?”

But while the movie may have more on its mind than just bloodsucking doesn’t mean that the mood is universally contemplative.”
