We Are The NightDir. Denis Gansel. 96 min. 2010 Germany
Who doesn’t like lesbian vampires? Let’s celebrate Friday, the 13th with one of the best vampire films you’ll ever see! 18 year old Lena is trouble. Her home life is terrible. She is caught by the police trying to rip off a Russian mobster, and she doesn’t know what to do with herself. One night she sets off to an underground disco at an abandoned amusement park in Berlin, where she catches the eye of a beautiful woman, but not just any woman – Louise is the leader of a vampire pack. And she wants Lena. Thus begins one of the most exciting vampire films in ages. Forget Twilight, this is the film you want to see, with hot female vampires kicking ass! Louise’s troupe includes the Club Girl, recruited during the Love Parade, and a glamorous German film star of the twenties, while Louise herself was recruited during the Hapsburg Empire. Unfortunately for Lena, Louise has fallen for her and wants her to be part of her group, and she soon learns that being a vampire is both a blessing and a curse.

Director Denis Gansel brings to screen a thrilling reimagining of the vampire mythology. This is world where all male vampires were killed for being too stupid and the women are powerful and unstoppable. Don’t miss this special pre-release screening courtesy of IFC films!
