Creatures of the Night

The full moon rises, a comet streaks across the sky, and dark shadows stir in this wicked program of short films.

Aussie short Swallow finds homophobic neighbors knocking to see what the “poofters” are up to. Unfortunately for them, these boys have a secret, and it’s that time of the month! On the night of a rare comet, tortured tomboy Morgan is given a second chance to resolve her guilt and finally express her true feelings for Olivia in The Night Is Ours. In the hilarious Out, a young vampire returns home to come out of the coffin to his parents. Set in an apartment building overrun by zombies, Goodnight My Love finds a dyke couple hiding in a laundry room, spending what may be their final moments doing what any self-respecting lesbians would do. Candy Cravings is a twisted romance about a young woman in therapy to work through her very unusual eating desires. YOLO is an intoxicating, stylized Danish treat of a lesbian vampire film. And a high school senior overcomes his emotional dysfunction and self-esteem issues when he unwittingly meets Dragula—played by Rocky Horror Picture Show legend Barry Bostwick!
