The Vineyard is a late 1980s horror film that was written by James Marlowe and Douglas Kondo and directed by James Hong and William “Bill” Rice. The movie also stars James Wong in a lead role as Dr. Elson Po.
In the film, Dr. Elson Po, is a famous wine grower/maker who just happens to have a rejuvenating potion that has kept him alive, and relatively young, over a number of centuries. However, the potion isn’t as effective as it once was, and in an attempt to preserve his youth he invents situations to attract younger people to his home so he can feed off their youth. He invites some young actors over to audition for a film on winemaking – except there is no film, and Dr. Elson Po has no intention of making any of them a star in his production. He has altogether different plans n store for them…..
