Shot opportunistically in 16mm with sound negative on the set of Jesús Franco’s Count Dracula, Pere Portabella’s parasite film is, in his own words, ‘a film within a film, a discourse within a discourse, in other words, a “bloodsucking film” of another.’ A filmic landmark of the Spanish anti-establishment cinema of the 1960s and 70s, Portabella’s Vampir-Cuadecuc exemplifies the clandestine strategies employed by avant-garde filmmakers under the dictatorship of Francisco Franco.
