Abusers are on the menu in queer vampire movie ‘So Vam’ [Watch]


Suck to suck.


australian director Alice Maio Mackay is 17 years old and is already a sensation in the world of horror. Mackay, already an award-winning trans filmmaker, wowed audiences with her short films and artistic vision. She’s not afraid to make her films as queer as possible and that’s beautiful to see. His film debut So vam is streaming now, with its second film not far behind.

Read the full synopsis for So vam below:

Kurt is an outcast in a conservative town who dreams of moving to town to become a famous drag queen. When he is kidnapped by an old predatory vampire and killed, he is rescued just in time to be resurrected by a gang of wayward vampires who feed on zealots and aggressors.

In our exclusive look at So vam, the vampire April shows newly transformed Kurt whom they hunt for blood. Their prey: aggressors, homophobes and transphobes who force homosexuals into the closet. So, naturally, a conversion camp is their hunting ground.

Watch the clip below:

MacKay’s feature debut is decidedly eerie as Kurt finds his new family as he navigates as a vampire and attempts to break into the world of drag. So vam is a beacon of hope in the horror cinema landscape, a stark example of how genre cinema can be gross, scary and gay all rolled into one.

Mackay is currently working on his next feature, a queer slasher titled Boogey bad girl.

So vam is available now on digital and VOD.
