  • In the end, all has been for nothing, and the vampire genre's exciting possibilities have been wasted on a messy script and messier intentions.

    July 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The Transfiguration is a small movie harboring big ideas about loss and how to make up for it.

    August 10, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Trying hard to play against expectations, writer-director Michael O'Shea casts a black teenager in the lead role of an urban vampire film. It's a decision that ultimately works in the film's favor, but only up to a point.

    May 5, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The effect is thin; less creative genre-smashing than a drab lack of commitment to either its mumblecore or horror sensibilities.

    April 23, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A lovely new addition to 2017's splendid gallery of superior art-horrors.

    April 21, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This film, directed by Michael O'Shea, is less a horror movie than a coming-of-age tale as Milo meets an equally troubled neighbour, Sophie, played by Chloe Levine.
