Blood and Bone China

Victorian Vampire Web Series
'It is 1897 and a city is in turmoil; poor souls are being taken, vanishing without a trace. When the local doctor disappears, word travels to his brother, a young country vet by the name of Newlyn Howell. Spurred on to discover the macabre truth by the enigmatic Alexander Pyre, Newlyn stumbles into a twisted web of deception, murder... and villainous vampires.'

'Blood and Bone China' is a feature length Gothic Victorian vampire web series that has been broadcast on the internet in 12 bite-sized chunks. It was created and directed by Chris and set and shot in his home town of Stoke- On-Trent. 'Blood and Bone China' was made as part of the Stoke Your Fires Film Festival and stars a wealth of up and coming local talent, including 'Hollyoaks' actress Rachel Shenton as journalist Anna Fitzgerald.

'Blood and Bone China' has been viewed over 300,000 times on YouTube and has a strong following on Twitter and Facebook. Episodes have been screened at the prestigious Raindance Film Festival and at Marseille WebFest and the feature film cut opened this year's Stoke Your Fires Film Festival. 'Blood and Bone China' also won 6 accolades at the Indie Intertube Awards, including 'Best Director' and 'Best Web Series'.

"In recent years, vampires have been pushed so far from the original Dracula legend, that I decided they needed to get their bite back with 'Blood and Bone China'.

--Chris Stone, Director

The story of 'Blood and Bone China' was partly inspired by a vampire related death that took place in Stoke-on-Trent in 1972. Inside the Gothic mansion that is number 3, The Villas, a man feared for his life. He held an absolute belief that vampires were real and had filled his room with tokens and talismans to stave off the demonic creatures. After going missing, his landlady called the police who broke down the door to his room. He was found lying in bed; he had choked to death on garlic. Chris was allowed access to the original police files and photographs relating to the case. For authenticity, the production used the actual locations where the real events happened and the web series even features a cameo from the grandson of the landlady that discovered the body.

Chris has also produced an 18-minute documentary called 'The Vampire of the Villas', which explores this infamous Stoke legend and the troubling and devastating effects that vampire folklore can have on us all.
