A horror movie-obsessed New York teen develops a curious thirst for human blood, while at the same time, forms a close relationship with the girl next door in this atmospheric vampire fable from first-time writer-director Michael O'Shea.
Starring young teen actors Eric Ruffin (from the CBS series "The Good Wife") and Chloe Levine (from the Netflix series "The OA"), "The Transfiguration" is a contemporary horror tale of teen obsession and inner-city isolation, with its central character, Milo (Ruffin), being a young Nosferatu in the making.
The film made its world premiere last summer at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. It's currently scheduled to make its North American debut at SXSW this weekend.
"The Transfiguration" is slated to open theatrically in New York City on April 7th, with other cities to follow.
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.
