ANDREW BAIRD TALKS INVERTING VAMPIRE TROPES IN ‘SUNRISE’

Posted on: January 25th, 2024

Andrew Baird‘s (One Way, Zone 414) fresh take on vampire lore, Sunrise, has been unleashed in theatres and on digital and we can’t recommend it enough.

Penned by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Ronan Blaney (Boogaloo and Graham, A Good Woman Is Hard to Find) and starring Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four, The Infernal Machine) and Guy Pearce (Memento, The Infernal Machine, Brimstone), the film follows an ex-cop named Fallon (Pettyfer) who returns to the scene of a horrific crime, and the residents of a rural town soon arrive at the conclusion that this dark visitor is actually a vampire who feeds on blood and fear. After he is befriended by a welcoming immigrant family, the instinctive killer is faced with a choice between revenge and redemption.

To celebrate the release of Sunrise in cinemas and on Digital/On Demand, we sat down with Baird, who revealed what it was about this particular vampire fable that he felt was calling out to be seen and stand out in such a crowded sub-genre.
