Synopsis

Two female vampires are on the run from a mysterious brotherhood in this atmospheric and innovative new twist on the bloodsucker myth. Posing as sisters, mother-daughter duo Clara and Eleanor arrive in a neglected English seaside town, where they hole up in a seedy old hotel. But their need to feed soon draws unwelcome attention — especially when lonely, eternal 16-year-old Eleanor begins falling for a sickly local boy and decides to tell him the deadly truth about her life. With events driven by relationships and emotions, this intriguing mix of horror and romantic melodrama is more thoughtful than your usual fantasy fare. The striking use of cinematography results in a film that really immerses you in the immortal pair's bleak and tragic world.
