Louis Feuillade, director of the FANTÔMAS films, returns with this ten-episode espionage series following tenacious journalist Philippe Guerande (Édouard Mathé) as he works to infiltrate a notorious international crime ring known as The Vampires, and encounters sensuous burglar Irma Vep (Musidora) -- the elusive, black-clad beauty at the center of the enigmatic secret society.

 Vampish villainess Irma Vep, along with her jewel-filching gang, terrorizes Paris in this complete collection of the intrigue-laden French silent serials.


Les Vampires is a 1915–16 French silent crime serial film written and directed by Louis Feuillade. Set in Paris, it stars Édouard Mathé, Musidora and Marcel Lévesque.
