"A quirky and sweet exploration of the meaning of life and an uplifting reminder that there’s always a way to be true to ourselves." - Jenn Adams, Strong Female Antagonist

"Ariane Louis-Seize makes her feature-length directorial debut with this daring and daffy horror-comedy that plays like Romeo and Juliet meets BEETLEJUICE and AMELIE." - Kristy Puchko, Mashable

In this charmingly dark comedy, young vampire Sasha is a total disappointment to her parents; she’s too sensitive to kill humans, and her fangs only come out when she feels an empathetic connection to her prey—a big problem for a creature of the night that relies on human blood to survive. Her frustrated parents kick her out of the lair and cut off her blood bank supply in hopes that, out of desperation, she'll learn how to hunt. But, when she meets the suicidal teenager Paul, she realizes there might be a way to kill with compassion. Part WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS with a dash of A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, HUMANIST VAMPIRE SEEKING CONSENTING SUICIDAL PERSON is a delightfully warm and lively coming-of-age (of the undead) film. Film Center exclusive.
