About the film:

World premiere, Venice Film Festival. Young Cineastes Award winner, Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Sasha is a teenage vampire — well, “teenage” is relative in their world — with an empathy problem. Unlike the rest of her clan, Sasha’s fangs don’t come out when she’s hungry or sensing fear; she needs to feel a personal connection to her prey. And then Sasha meets Paul, an actual teenager convinced he’ll never enjoy anything in life. She befriends him, introduces him to her world and its secrets, and he happily volunteers to be her next meal. Which would be great, except for the whole empathy thing.

“‘What We Do In The Shadows’ for people who grew up loving the soft goth girl vibes of Emily The Strange and Lydia Deetz.” 

—Marya E. Gates, RogerEbert
