Loosely based on Irish poet J. Sheridan le Fanu’s In a Glass Darkly (the same Fanu who's Carmilla inspired Stoker to pen Dracula) the script for the movie is written by Christen Jul and Dreyer who at the time of production considered vampires to be “fashionable things at the time” – ironically that hasn’t changed in almost eighty years as the vampire as an archetype is possibly stronger today than ever, and is certainly still a fashionable thing.
