Limbo (aka Children OF The Night) is Ivan Noel’s fifth feature movie, and once again involves a new genre. The film was completed in 2014 but not released until 2015. This time the age-old theme of vampires is re-visited in a totally original way, utilizing his characteristic blend of brute realism, surreal humor, and visual poetry, to portray the inside life of a secluded colony of child vampires who are, in fact, between 4 and 120 years old. (When children are bitten by vampires, they never change physical state). It includes risqué themes, apparent inter-generational love, and harsh criticism of blind religious and social intolerance of differences. Utilizing the ever popular theme of vampires, this film will confuse the habitual good v. evil dilemma, darkly blending various fairy tales, religious fanaticism, and take today’s social morality and social correctness for a joy ride, turning it on its head, yet always falling safely back on its feet, ending in a cataclysmic and hilarious blood bath.[1] This film is currently being distributed by Jinga Films under the title, Children OF The Night [2]

Synopsis

A vampiric dark-comedy, Limbo centers around a secluded colony of child-vampires between the ages of 4 and 120, who were all the victims of shameless adult vampires. They are led by a formidable and deeply religious ex-nurse whose destiny in life is to find these ‘lost souls,’ and raise them in her colony. Through religious teachings and rituals adapted from Catholicism, and the occasional visit to local towns for blood, she prepares the children for what God had in mind for them… creation of a new race of men through ‘natural cloning,’ (which amounts to being bitten by her children). However, they are neither the only colony of their kind, nor are they as secluded from the outside world as they think.[3]
