Netflix is Set To Adapt ‘A People’s History of The Vampire Uprising’

Andrew Liptak, writer for, wrote an article to announce that Raymond Villareal‘s A People’s History of The Vampire Uprising was set for adaption by Netflix as a film.

Travis Knight is set to lead the adaptation efforts of this book, and it will be produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.




The events of the book begin when a woman’s dead body is found in Arizona, only for it to disappear shortly afterwards–which implies that this woman may very well be Patient Zero in this narrative. Vampirism, in this oral telling, is a pandemic that is spreading across the globe at a rapid pace. While some individuals are more than willing to transform into a vampire, who refer to themselves as Gloamings in this setting, other individuals are not. Eventually, a gloaming decides to run for office, and this becomes a defining moment in the story.

The story is told through multiple points of view as the events of global change grip this fictional world.

While we wait for news on when this adaptation will be released, consider reading the book, which you can get here.
