Weekend Vampire – short film


Weekend Vampire was created by Sophia and Allix Mortis (who you may remember as the star of Magnetic!) for a Women in Film/Harvard Scriptwriters Club competition called Flicks4Chicks. We won two awards at the fest: Best Comedy (as chosen and presented by the Women in Comedy Festival) and Best Costumes!

The film follows a night-in-the-life of an ancient vampire (Stabatha la Thrills) who wakes up in an attic in 2016 and goes party-hopping with a chatty millennial (Sake Toomey).
