Transfiguration, The (15)

Transfiguration, The (15)

Drama, Horror

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.

The critical consensus

More Moonlight than Twilight, The Transfiguration is a defining vampire film of the mid-2010s. An acutely observed study of social/emotional deprivation, but also a gripping, disturbing horror movie. And, yes, it’s ‘realistic’.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 18/04/2017

A strange, solidly-acted slow burn studded with shocking moments, The Transfiguration may prove too tender for horror fans and too grim for indie purists; but it slides between genres with a good deal of imagination, sensitivity and grace.

****(*)Hannah McGill, The List, 17/04/2017

A little too self-conscious to connect, but the anti-hero lead is compelling enough.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 18/04/2017

What follows is a chilling but empathetic horror film about a kid with limited options trying to free himself from the curse of his own life. It’s a vampire film, but one in which society sucks the life out of those forever stuck on the bottom rung.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 20/04/2017

An unhappy marriage of indie arthouse movie and slasher flick, lacking the conviction of either genre.
