Terrifying Multi-Award Winning Vampire Tale From Magnolia Home Entertainment
Winner Of "Best Narrative Feature" At The Tribeca Film Festival
"BEST. VAMPIRE MOVIE. EVER." -Washington Examiner

"This is a vampire movie like no other... mesmerizing ..."-Newsweek

"As delicate, haunting and poetic a film as you're ever bound to see. A chilling fairy tale." - Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Devil's Backbone)

Regularly bullied by his stronger classmates, 12-year-old Oskar's wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets his new neighbor Eli. A pale, serious young girl, Eli only comes out at night and doesn't seem affected by the freezing temperatures. Coinciding with her arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. One man is found tied to a tree, another frozen in the lake, a woman bitten in the neck. Blood seems to be the common denominator - and for an introverted boy like Oskar, who is fascinated by gruesome stories, it doesn't take long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire.
But by now a subtle romance has blossomed between the two, and she gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Oskar becomes increasingly aware of the tragic, inhuman dimension of Eli's plight, but cannot bring himself to forsake her. Frozen forever in a twelve-year-old's body, with all the burgeoning feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent, Eli knows that she can only continue to live if she keeps on moving. But when Oskar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can...
