Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.

Peter Bradshaw review - “Guardian”:http://www.theguardian.com/film/2013/may/30/byzantium-review A British take on the vampire romp naturally features a centuries-old prostitute in a rundown seaside town – with some 80s surrealism thrown in

“63% Tomatometer”:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/byzantium_2012/ Director Neil Jordan remains as expert as ever when it comes to setting a chilling mood, but Byzantium struggles to match its creepily alluring atmosphere with a suitably compelling story.
