Vampire Series “Nightwalkers” Marks Firsts For Aussie Programming

Saturday, December 7, 2019 | News


Sydney-based filmmaker Adrian Castro’s NIGHTWALKERS tells the story of Sam (Taylor Davis) and Charlie Corey (Georgina Neville): a pair of vampire slaying sisters. With a rising number of vamp-related incidents in Western Sydney, the duo catch wind of an ancient artifact that would make their bloodsucking enemies all-but unstoppable. It’s a race against time as Sam and Charlie do whatever they must to find the artifact and halt a vampire apocalypse. 

NIGHTWALKERS is the first Australian series of its type, blending comedy, horror, and fangtastic action in a love letter to 80s vampire flicks. It features genre-favorite Ken Foree (DAWN OF THE DEAD, THE BEYOND) in a cameo performance, and, in another landmark first, actor Bee Cruse as indigenous vampire, Dante. Cruse also serves as a series producer. 

NIGHTWALKERS is currently playing on ABC IVIEW, Australia’s national broadcaster. International audiences can check it out on YouTube at ABC Comedy.
