The Transfiguration

Filmmaker Michael O'Shea's feature debut is an indie vampire flick set in NYC and starring Eric Ruffin and Chloe Levine. Debuted at Cannes.

"Queens, New York… 14 year-old Milo is an outsider. Orphaned, ignored by his schoolmates and bullied by older kids, he takes refuge in the apartment he shares with his older brother. To escape his solitude, he immerses himself in the world of the vampire. Milo hides a dark secret, but a chance encounter with a new neighbour Sophie leads him to develop new feelings. But is this enough to quash his dark urges?" (Cannes Film Festival)

Michael O'Shea wears his influences on his sleeve in this downbeat, sporadically engaging slow-burn modern vampire fable.

The Transfiguration is a character study first and foremost, spending all of its time with Milo. Problem is, he's so opaque that as a protagonist, he's completely impenetrable.

A vampire movie that looks, feels, walks and talks like a gritty US indie flick.

There are plenty of references to other vampire and horror movies. But The Transfiguration remains a unique take on such things.
