Bit (2019)

Bit (2019) is a criminally underrated independent Vampire film. More vampire fans NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE. Harmony M. Colangelo’s review on Medium touted it as the best example of trans representation when it first premiered. Largely because it doesn’t even really mention that the main character Laurel, (and actor Nicole,) is a trans girl at all, but rather treats her just like every other girl in the movie and barely even alludes to it. However, that’s not the only thing that makes Bit stand out so far from other vampire films.

Indigenous Blood Suckers

Across the oceans of time, few creatures have captured the Imagination quite as vividly as the Vampire. This beast in human shape has stalked our collective unconsciousness from time immemorial, and it’s easy to see why. They are Us. Or they were. Undead creatures that, at least on a casual glance, can be mistaken for humans. Stalking us in plain sight and drinking the blood of the living to sate their ever-increasing thirst for life and worse, making their victims into one of them. While, in modern myth, they are beautiful, sensual creatures, in earlier legends state that they resemble humans only in the vaguest sense. Two Legs, and two arms, a head and chest, etc. But a look at...
