A remote, rural monastery houses the young repressed monks of the Order of Pathicus, and their dark secrets. Tainted by the severe murder of a young acolyte after a rebuked advance, the monks further retreat from a society they crave to join. After a quarter century of silence the houseâ€™s violent past yearns for awakening. Animals are found eviscerated, odd sounds breathe in the night air, and an evil presence is felt throughout.
When an unconscious young drifter is discovered near the monastery, his sexual presence unsettles the young novices, as well as the resident priests. The manâ€™s dark charisma ensnares the attentions of the young novices as they are unraveled by their tense obsessions, except for the monk Rafael, who resistâ€™s the strangerâ€™s temptations and seeks escape from the doomed cage of the crumbling monastery.
Director Patrick McGuinn (Sun Kissed) and screenwriter AndrĂ© Salas (Latin Boys Go To Hell) create an erotic homage to Dark Shadows, Hammer films, and 1970s Italian tales, percolating with a sexual pulse, a menacing tone, a tinge of sly camp, and supernatural evocations. Eulogy for a Vampire was filmed in an atmospheric 19th-century manse in historic Philmont, New York, owned by Eleanor Ambos, the celebrated New York City antique dealer.
