So Vam

So Vam

Directed by Alice Maio Mackay

Kurt is an outcast in a conservative town who dreams of moving to the city to be a famous drag queen. Kidnapped by a predatory old vampire, Kurt is rescued and resurrected by a gang of rebellious vamps who feed on bigots and abusers. As a vampire he finally knows empowerment and belonging, but until Kurt faces the monster, he will never truly be free. The exciting debut from Australian trans teen filmmaker Alice Maio Mackay, So Vam is a low budget, high energy tribute to teen vampire classics, from a distinctly Gen Z, genderqueer POV. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE

When an outcast is kidnapped by a predatory old vampire and killed, he is rescued just in time to be resurrected by a gang of rebellious vampires who feed on bigots and abusers.

Cast: Xai, Chris Asimos, Grace Hyland, Patty Glavieux, Benjamin Putnam

Absolutely love it. The writers understand the vampire genre perfectly, and too often the queer roots of vampirism are forgotten. I cannot recommend this enough for any vampire fans.

For once, Shudder nailed the description: this is a movie with LGBTQ characters and a genderqueer POV. If you don't want to see things from a queer point of view--if that's not your jam--then maybe give this one a miss. Otherwise, yes, technically not the best--but I've definitely seen worse on this channel--and we get to see a lot of characters we rarely see. See a lot of transgender vampires before, have you? So we get a fun, pro LGBTQ-themed film were the hetero bullies get what's coming to them. What's not to like?
