The Transfiguration

(AOTN) Contemporary Horror is having a big moment right now, SMT heads. And Michael O’Shea’s psychological vampire thriller,  THE TRANSFIGURATION, is looking to have its moment in…well, if not the sun, at least something similar.

With Jordan Peele’s GET OUT making waves all across the film world, new horror topics and tropes abound right now. But that doesn’t mean there’s not room for new takes on old ideas. And with dynamic performances by newcomers Eric Ruffin and Chloe Levine, this official selection for Cannes definitely has bite.

But now’s the time for you to listen for yourself…

An official selection at the Cannes Film Festival, writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature The Transfiguration follows troubled teen Milo who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence, The Transfiguration is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City.
Running time: 97 Minutes. Drama/Horror. In English. Not rated.

This atmospheric New York tale about love, loss, and vampires follows Milo, a 14-year-old boy with a dark secret. The surprise of the Cannes Film Festival 2016.

After Venya’s mother receives a call from school reporting her son’s refusal to participate in mixed swimming lessons, she first suspects her teenager of being shy and derides his claim that it is “against his religion.” As Venya is finally exempted by the school’s devout principal, he grows confident that his strict and rigorous study of the Bible gives him the ability to manipulate all forms of authority.

Challenged by a teacher who refuses to consent to his dogma, he sets out to eliminate her and subdue an entire community. At a time when arguments over the teaching of religion in public schools are prominent in the media, this wildly escalating classroom drama — based on a play by German playwright Marius von Mayenburg — serves as a frightening cautionary tale.
