Inside Out Fest 2019 is Toronto’s very own LGBT film festival. This was the perfect place to premiere Brad Michael Elmore’s vampire tale, Bit (2019), a supernatural, super feminist, and super queer movie that is sure to blow your mind. Not to mention, Bit is the most fun you’ll have at the movies this year. At least according to the filmmakers! I gotta say, they may be on to something. This kick ass clip they sent us sank its fangs right into me. I think you’ll dig it, too.
Check it out!
Bit (2019) Synopsis
Desperate to get away from her small-town roots and find a like-minded community, Laurel hits the road for Los Angeles as soon as she graduates from high school. Sure, people in L.A. are different, but do these people seem extra different? Yes, they do, because they are vampires.
On her first night out in the city, Laurel attends a warehouse party and befriends a mysterious group of punk feminist women, led by the intimidating Duke. Laurel is surprised to have met her people so quickly, but her luck turns when one of them feeds on her blood and leaves her for dead. Waking up and realizing she might have become a vampire, Laurel confronts the women who converted her and is given a choice: go back to a boring life or join an ultra-cool vampire squad.
Could it possibly be that simple? Of course not.
Filmmaker Brad Michael Elmore is known for his previous projects, Boogeyman Pop (2018) and The Wolfman’s Hammer (2011). The film features a talented, young cast, including trans activist/actress Nicole Maines (who played the first trans superhero on The CW’s Supergirl), as well as M.C. Gainey (Club Dread 2004 – read our retro review here), Diana Hopper (Lavalantula 2015), and James Paxton (Boogeyman Pop 2018).
I absolutely LOVE their poster art!
