Highgate Vampire Movie

In the 38 years since the Highgate Vampire story broke in the mainstream press, there have been no movie adaptations re-telling the tale.

Until now.

Well, sort of.

A production by Digital Major and Draw Pictures called Highgate Vampire: The Movie, bills itself as

an interactive horror set in modern times about a vampire infestation in a London cemetery. The story is influenced by true events that happened in and around London’s Highgate Cemetery some time ago.

The description accompanying its trailer on YouTube, goes into a bit more detail:

4 American teenagers hook up online and meet up in London where they embark on a terrifying journey into London's Gothic past.

Personally, I think a straight adaptation would have been much more preferable.
