It’s important to know that vampires have been around for a very long time. You might even be a big part of big things, like the main character in Pablo Larran’s new dark comedy horror film El Conde. The main character of this movie is a tyrant who is accused of breaking a lot of people’s rights while he is in charge.

You might also be a real monster. In particular, a monster that eats blood and lives long enough to want you to change your ways or at least change how the world might remember you.

The count in the title of El Conde is the hated Augusto Pinochet, who took power in Chile with a coup d’état on September 11, 1973, 50 years ago. This role is played by the well-known Chilean actor Jaime Vadell. In the movie, he is still alive.

He is really an old vampire who has been around since the French Revolution and has been in many of the biggest wars in the world. And now, after what seems like 250 years on earth, the movie Pinochet has chosen it is time to die for good, but not before making an odd friend along the way.

What Date Does El Conde Come Out?

On September 15, 2023, everyone in the world will be able to watch El Conde on Netflix. It was shown for the first time at the Venice Film Festival on August 31, 2023.

What Happens in El Conde?

Jaime Vadell plays an old vampire who lives in a broken-down house in the cold southern tip of Chile with his long-suffering wife Lucia (Gloria Münchmeyer) and his long-time and very loyal helper Alfredo Castro. Early scenes show that the count has been taking advantage of people since the French Revolution.

Now, after 250 years of cruelly trying to get power and living off the literal blood of people and the metaphorical marrow of his country’s workers, he can’t stop thinking that people will remember him as a thief and tyrant. He decides to end his life by not eating blood anymore. But just as his unhappy and greedy middle-aged children arrive at the country house, the count has another change of heart.


The fake Pinochet was based on the real Pinochet, who took power in Chile with a coup d’état in 1973 and died in house arrest in 2006. During his nearly 20 years in power, about 300 people said he broke their rights. Larran told Netflix, “We used the language of comedy and political theater to make El Conde’s world ironic and deadpan.”

“The General has a psychological crisis and has to decide if it’s worth it to live as a vampire, drink the blood of his victims, and punish the world with his endless evil. A figure of speech about why history keeps repeating itself to show us how dangerous things can get.” To watch more of content like this, please visit https://www.bigflix.com/.
