So Vam is a 2021 Australian horror film about a young gay guy who wants to be a drag queen but is bitten by an old vampire.

Directed and produced by Alice Maio Mackay from a screenplay co-written with Benjamin Pahl Robinson [as Ben Pahl Robinson].

The One Manner Productions movie stars Chris Asimos,
Jessica Burgess, Patty Glavieux, Grace Hyland, Iris Mcerlean and Tumelo Nthupi.

Plot:
Kurt is an outcast in a conservative town who dreams of moving to the city to be a famous drag queen. When he is kidnapped by a predatory old vampire and killed, he is rescued just in time to be resurrected by a gang of rebellious vampires who feed on bigots and abusers.

As a vampire, he finally knows empowerment and belonging, but his killer is still out there: creating new minions with their own rotten hatred and threatening all that he loves. Until Kurt faces the monster, he will never truly be free, but this time he need not face it alone…

Reviews:
“With a quick run time, some fun musical numbers and plenty of emotional bonding between those young vampires — and some juicy Bram Stoker gossip — So Vam has its heart — and plenty of blood — on its sleeve. It’s also a blast.” B&S About Movies

“It doesn’t shy away from the dark truths of life as someone out of the closet, but it revels in the moments of bloody revenge against those who deserve comeuppance. Despite her age, Mackay is an incredibly proficient writer and director who balances tension and humor with ease. It’s nothing short of a queer cult classic in the making.” Film Cred

“The pacing is near perfection. The attention to detail is superb. The storytelling and the unfolding of the story is spot on. The performances are strong and the characters mesh together nicely. The dialogue between the characters is authentic and brings life to the story. The drag queen scenes are so much fun as well.” Pop Horror
