SXSW Selection ‘The Transfiguration’ Gets Atmospheric Trailer
Writer/Director Michael O’Shea’s modern take on vampire lore made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival. Before release next month, it will screen at the SXSW Film Festival as part of its “Festival Favorites” section. To celebrate, we have both a new trailer and new poster. While it does appear to be a slow-burn thriller, at least based on the trailer, it also looks quite moody and atmospheric. Gritty and violent, with very young leads makes for an interesting concept worth exploring.
What’s also intriguing is O’Shea’s honoring of New York’s traditional low budget genre fare, which he pays homage to by including genre veterans Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Troma President) and Larry Fessenden (Habit, Glass Eye Pix founder) in the cast.
Starring Eric Ruffin and Chloe Levine, The Transfiguration will make its SXSW debut on March 10, 2017 at 9:30pm CST. The film opens in New York on April 7 at the Angelika Film Center before opening in Los Angeles on April 21 at the Nuart Theater.
