Following its well-received screenings at SXSW, The Transfiguration is coming to select theaters this month, and we've been provided with two clips from the vampiric coming-of-age tale for Daily Dead readers to check out.

"An official selection at the Cannes Film Festival, writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature The Transfiguration follows troubled teen Milo who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence, The Transfiguration is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City."

Written and directed by Michael O'Shea, and starring Eric Ruffin and Chloe Levine, The Transfiguration will begin screening April 7th at the Angelika Film Center, followed by an April 21st showing at The Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles, as well as a national release from Strand Releasing.

In case you missed them, check out our SXSW review of The Transfiguration, as well as our interview with writer/director Michael O' Shea and Q&A with cinematographer Sung Rae Cho.
