An Official Selection and double nominee at the Cannes Film Festival, writer/director Michael O'Shea's debut feature is a modern vampire tale, set in contemporary New York, about a troubled teen named Milo (Eric Ruffin). 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 vampire lore. Milo hides a dark secret, but when he meets the equally alienated Sophie (Chloe Levine), the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo's obsessions, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence set against the grit of New York City, it’s an atmospheric thriller that blends elements of George A. Romero's Martin with John McNaughton's Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. If you’re a fan of creative horror films like It Follows, Let the Right One In and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, you won’t want to miss The Transfiguration! Also starring Aaron Clifton Moten (“Mozart in the Jungle”).
