The Art of Darkness

Blood and Bone China

July 13th, 2011 by Cobwebs

Blood and Bone China is a slick-looking “Victorian vampire” Web series created by filmmaker Chris Stone for his hometown of Stoke-on-Trent’s Stoke Your Fires film festival. The series consists of 12 5-10 minute episodes which are being released every two weeks.

It is 1897 and a city is in turmoil. In the smoky, dirty depths of middle England, the people are terrified. The once bustling streets of Stoke are empty, the silence is only broken by the whispers of devils, demons and vampires. Poor souls are being taken, vanishing without a trace.

When the local doctor is snatched away, word travels to his brother, a young vet by the name of Newlyn Howell. Spurred on to discover the truth by the enigmatic Alexander Pyre, Newlyn’s dark adventure into the depths of Victorian Stoke begins… and what he discovers is beyond belief.

There’s also a blog which offers behind-the-scenes clips and commentary.
