Production: PL 2013
A film about desire, perversion, and concealed cravings, but also about the essence of man – the crossing of boundaries, and about our secret fascination with killers. The film juxtaposes two intriguing taboos: sex and death. Does the dark fascination with serial murderers tell us something relevant about ourselves? Through the character of Joachim Knychała, who in 1975-1982 murdered five women, we look at those whose life had been marked by the famous “vampire of Bytom.” Among them we can find ex-journalist Edward Kozak who, although of considerable age, openly admits to his various obsessions. Thanks to the film about the “vampire” he can once again enjoy the warmth of the spotlight.
