VAMPEER Saga [3 parts]
In the midst of normal people, a shy and troubled young woman is destined to rise above the realm of humanity. This is the journey of Netra, a descendant of a powerful Indonesian dukun [shaman] lineage, who wants to live a normal life. But nothing is normal in her life. After experiencing the loss of both parents during childhood, her nightmares are about to begin. As she reaches young adulthood, in addition to her nightmares, she seems to develop certain mental abilities that would open doors for her to join a Singapore Police Special Unit. Another loss hits her hard, the death of her only sister, Kirana. To heal her broken heart, Netra travels to live with her grandmother in the land of her ancestors, a small village in the middle of the forest located south of Surabaya, Indonesia. In that remote place, full of Nature's energy, Netra will meet Deceneus, the long-lived White Dukun, and through him she will find answers that will change her life forever. The White Dukun, Deceneus, the most devoted priest of Zamolxes, will reveal the true nature, practically immortal, of her soul: on the one hand, a normal human spirit, and on the other hand, the reincarnation of Vlad the Impaler, the ruler of Wallachia. A process was needed to complete the symbiosis between her human soul and Vlad's soul, a process meant to save his life, a process that was not yet complete.
A young woman, after experiencing strange nightmares and supernatural abilities, begins a quest for answers, but only The One can reveal the truth about her unsettling identity. IMDb
... you thrust us in, feeling just as confused and unsure as Netra is ... [...] This gives this story not only that genre element audiences love to get lost in but creating this sense of mystery and intrigue that keeps us guessing the entire time. -Diverse Voices [presented by WeScreenplay].
- Vampeer has a nice marketability angle. Its supernatural motives, combined with a compelling visual identity, suspense and thriller elements, allow us to anticipate a fruitful turnover for the film. Depending on the budget and conveying to the screen, Vampeer has the potential to take over the box office. - The Golden Script Competition

The music behind the story
In this ocean of excellent writers I honestly doubt Vampeer will see the light of any filming set, ever. But I felt compelled to tell this story. So, with this in mind, I will keep it playing in my head over and over again, for as long as I breathe. - Leonidas Stanescu
A few Cinematic Scores were produced in an inspirational symbiotic relation with this story: Vampeer, Army of the Undead , Wallachian Blood and Argedava among others, all available in the album Vampeer [original motion Picture Soundtrack]. The name of Argedava comes from the capital of Dacia [82-44? BC] in the time of King Burebista, and represents part 2, where the first act focuses on Deceneu and his journey through time. Wallachian Blood comes to represent Part 3 where Netra, in the company of Deceneu and guided by Zamolxes himself, will travel back in time to learn about her past life. This journey will reveal a more terrifying truth as her journey will take her to a place beyond death, to the darkness between both realms.
