Trailer: "Strigoi" (2009)

For those interested in Romanian folklore and horror movies with a comedic twist, I recommend the movie Strigoi
Description: "Director Faye Jackson goes directly to the heart of the Romanian vampire myth in this darkly comedic horror fest set and shot in a post-Communist Romania, where old ways die hard -- especially when it comes to dealing with the undead, or strigoi. When young Vlad's (Catalin Paraschiv) Western European education fails to land him the easy life, he returns to his Romanian village, only to find murder afoot ... and a plague of vampires the likely culprit."
