This movie is absolutely not going to be for everyone, but it is a definite gem. Beyond my love for the horror genre, I'm a bit of a film snob with a strong leaning toward indie movies and classics. The Transfiguration is not so much an independent horror film as it is an independent film with horror elements. At its heart is a very troubled young man who meets an equally troubled young woman, both brilliantly portrayed with nuance by their actors. That Milo is obsessed with vampires is almost incidental to the plot, a monster MacGuffin that drives us along. The subplots all feed each other subtly but beautifully and meaningfully, and the relationship between the two leads is heartbreakingly sweet. This is one for the more open-minded horror fans, willing to view way outside the genre while still getting a minor gore kick.
