A troubled teen with the thirst for blood must overcome his violent impulses while dealing with bullies, a distant brother, and the attraction he feels for his new neighbor. Official selection of Cannes and the SXSW Film Festivals.

An official selection at the Cannes and SXSW Film Festivals, writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature The Transfiguration follows troubled teen Milo who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence, The Transfiguration is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City

“A darkly affecting tale about the high and sometimes bloody cost of self awareness and sociopathic conviction.” - Film School Rejects
