Weird but Interesting Low-Budget Rip-Off of "Martin" and "Låt den rätte komma in"

The outcast orphan Milo (Eric Ruffin) is a lonely teenager that lives with his brother in a dangerous neighborhood. Milo is fan of vampire stories and movies and he randomly kills people to drink their blood like a vampire and steal their money. When he meets the depressed teenager Sophie (Chloe Levine), they become friends and spend their leisure time together affecting Milo.

"The Transfiguration" is a weird but interesting low-budget rip-off of "Martin" and "Låt den rätte komma in". There is something missing to rate "The Transfiguration" a good film, but it keeps the attention of the viewer until he last scene. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): Not Available

Slow paced and uneventful...

I quickly read through the synopsis for the movie when I found it in the horror section. The synopsis seemed like it could be an interesting enough movie, and had me believing that this would be a vampire movie of sorts.

However, this was not really the type of movie that I had expected it to be. And I am somewhat perplexed about how it ended up in the horror section, because this was not a horror movie at all; it was a drama with elements of horror at the very best.

Writer and director Michael O'Shea had come up with a somewhat mundane storyline and one that was rather slow paced as well. That meant that the storytelling wasn't particularly impressive and just trotted on at a very slow and dull pace, making for a less than impressive movie.

Milo's obsession with vampires and his constant watching of vampire movies, made for a fun game of trying to identify as many of the movies that he watched as possible, so it was a test of the viewer's knowledge of vampire movies in a way.

The acting in the movie was adequate, and it was nice to see new faces on the screen. I do enjoy watching new actors and actresses on the screen in movies, as they have no association with prior characters portrayed in other movies. However, the cast in "The Transfiguration" were struggling against the limitations of the script and storyline, and the movie was suffering from that.

"The Transfiguration" was a real struggle to sit through, because it was so slow paced and mundane. It took forever for the story to virtually go almost nowhere. This is definitely not a movie that I will be returning to for a second time around, because it was a battle to get through it the first time. And while the movie is running at an average length of 1 hour and 37 minutes it is so slow paced that it feels like way past 2 hours.

Painfully Slow and "Un-engaging."

I enjoy Independent films, however the pacing for this particular film was excruciatingly slow and the main character so deadpan and without emotion that at times I felt the need to fast forward in order to get on with the next segment. The soundtrack used during the so called "tense scenes" really had a 50s B movie quality to it, adding to the impression that it was a low budget exercise. No real punch line or moral with the ending and while I did watch it all the way through, the story didn't have any depth to it, the characters were uninteresting and I simply can't recommend it.
