This satire of college and werewolf movies is a melting pot of bloody deaths, sexy situations, explosions, werewolves and love at first sight.
Barksdale University is typically a very safe place. But last month’s killing of a young couple on a full moon has people worried, especially detective/wolf expert Will Funter who is in town to investigate Moon Studies 101 teacher Dr. Howell.
The girls at the sorority house are taking the death of their sister pretty hard, and they’re going to get over it the only way they know how, throwing a full moon party- after all, it’s tradition. ‘Every full moon!’ as they say.
Twenty two minutes of that, what could possibly go wrong?

Vampires have hunted humans since the dawn of time. Yet with rising inflation, soaring unemployment and higher taxes, it is vampires who are currently struggling for survival.
The 20th century was a golden age for the undead; a little known fact is that real vampires have often appeared in horror movies. Cinema offered a chance at cash, glamor and respectability.
However, after years of steady income, the vampire film craze ended, largely due to the over-saturation of Twilight, Buffy, etc. This left many out of work and unprepared for a life outside of cinema.
This comedy/horror mockumentary follows five vampires as they attempt, at all costs, to look for new sources of income. However, getting paid or not, the killing never stops.
Written/Directed by Fabien Montagner; Produced by Laurent Montagner

Erin plays an angel (with a harp, of course!) given a mission by God that she must carry out in appropriately mysterious, scientific, and supernatural fashion.
