More than a decade since Jordan and Woolley last properly worked together comes Byzantium, starring Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan in a tale about vampires, storytelling and sexuality.

Starting in realist mode with mama monster Clara (Arterton) as a contemporary lap-dancer who keeps cheesewire handy to behead unwelcome callers and daughter Eleanor (Ronan) haunting council states for OAPs to bleed, Byzantium looks to pre-Stoker literature for the early 19th century flashbacks which explain their origins. Darvell (Sam Riley) and Ruthven (Jonny Lee Miller), naval officers whose casual attitude to women has centuries-long consequences, take their names from versions of a story told by Lord Byron (A Fragment) and John Polidori (The Vampyre) which introduced the vampire into English prose.

In an eerie, chilly, tatty-yet-genteel seaside town, the couple fall out — Clara preys on those who deserve to die while Eleanor seeks out those who won’t want to live — and their purpuers close in.

Byzantium is out the UK on 31 May.
