Cullingham says about this film: “The main birth of Umbrage was the cowboy-vampire figure, Phelan. I had for some time been carrying this character around in my head. Mashing horror and western together is not completely original, I know, but I just wanted to cross a cowboy with a vampire. Vampires can sometimes be a little effete, but add a gruff cowboy veneer to that and you have a whole different kettle of fish”.
UMBRAGE: THE FIRST VAMPIRE can been seen on June 22nd at 10.25pm.
TV: Sky 319 / Virgin 149 / Freesat 138
