Bloodsucker’s Handbook – A Truly Bizarre Vampire Noir

Bloodsucker’s Handbook – A Truly Bizarre Vampire Noir

Priest meets vampire. Talking dog comes to his aid. Then things start to get weird.


Part “Naked Lunch,” part “Alice in Wonderland,” Enchiridion is a vampire film like no other. Set in 1966, this tale features not only coffins and blood-suckers, but a groovy pterodactyl, toad-licking junkies, and a gun-toting greyhound.

Enchiridion is the story of Father Noah Gregory, a young priest who is approached by federal marshals with an unusual request: help them deal with a vampire they have taken into custody. Drawn in by tales of the vampire’s history, Noah’s own life begins to take strange twists. And when the vampire disappears, things get very weird.

See the film that has delighted and confounded festival audiences and inspired the slogan: embrace the weird.

About The Author


Andrew H. was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, which he moved away from the first day he was allowed to in the hopes that he could leave behind a life of incredibly petty crime. Most of his immediate family has worked in the film industry since the 1930's, a career path he swore he would avoid at all costs. Having exactly as much willpower as a small goat he became involved in the film industry shortly after his 32nd birthday. In the following years since he has worked on both feature and short films. He has now written and directed two short films with his wife and filmmaking partner, Kynda Laufmann, with whom he has two sons. He has worked as director of photography, editor, sound department, writer, and director on several other short films and feature films. Andrew has even been wrangled into acting on three separate occasions, despite his desperate begging to do literally any other job on those films. Andrew’s passion and focus lie in making independent horror films, convincing people that hot drinks are rubbish, and owning all of the comic books.
