REVIEW: El Conde (2023, dir. Pablo Larraín)

El Conde is an original and entertaining horror-satire that plays around with familiar vampire conventions, to where it can be considered a love letter to that type of gothic horror, and takes aim at the monstrous legacy of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet with a sharp commentary on the normalisation of fascism that is, in some aspects, more terrifying than blood-sucking activity.
