Comrade Drakulich


After a 20-year absence and a successful revolution in Cuba, comrade Fábián returns to Budapest as a national hero, to serve as the poster boy for a nation-wide blood donation drive. Strangely, Fábián doesn't seem to have aged a single day. The Hungarian secret service shadows him diligently, believing the returnee has discovered the secret to eternal life – but is Fábián really a vampire? 

With a healthy dose of humour and many an allusion to the vampire film genre, Márk Bodzsár examines the myth of eternal communism, blending spy thriller tropes and themes of female empowerment into a refreshing genre cocktail that even Dracula would choose over virgin blood.
