The upcoming horror-character study, The Transfiguration, is being touted as potentially being one of the most disturbing films of the year. That may be so, but to me it sounds more like a remake/reimagining of George Romero’s Martin. The Transfiguration is written and directed by Michael O’Shea and stars Eric Ruffin, Chloe Levine, Jelly Bean, Phyillicia Bishop, Dangelo Bonneli, Andrea Cordaro, Lloyd Kaufman, and Larry Fessenden.
Ruffin plays Milo, who at the beginning of the film we see in a bathroom stall, leaning over a body, sucking blood from a hole in a dead man’s neck. The viewer isn’t clear whether or not Milo needs to be doing this to live, but it is clear that he thinks he does. The film’s main tension comes from whether or not Milo is really a vampire. Sound familiar? Here’s the official plot crunch:
When troubled teen Milo, who has a fascination with vampire lore, meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to blur Milo’s fantasy into reality.
Kind of sounds like a cross between Let the Right One In and Martin. Sounds pretty interesting to me!! The Transfiguration is set to drop in the UK on April 21, 2017. Now dig on the trailer:
