What happens when you’re made of money and bored out of your mind? Well you get turned into a vampire. That’s the story of the new film coming to Shudder, Dead & Beautiful. David Verbeek directs the cast featuring: Gijs Blom, Aviis Zhong, Yen Tsao, Philip Juan, and Anechka Marchenko.
Here’s the official synopsis from Shudder.
In Dead & Beautiful, five rich, spoiled Asian twenty-somethings (Gijs Blom, Aviis Zhong, Yen Tsao, Philip Juan, Anechka Marchenko) are suffering from upper class ennui, unsure how to spend their days when so little is expected from them. In search of excitement, the five friends form the “Circle,” a group where they take turns designing a unique, extravagant experience for the others. But things go wrong when the privileged urbanites awaken after a night out, to find they have developed vampire fangs and an unquenchable thirst for flesh, blood, and adventure at any price.
Dead & Beautiful premieres on Shudder, Thursday, November 4th, 2021. It plays at Fantastic Fest Saturday, September 25th. This one looks fantastic. It’s a novel concept that’s explored with the prospect of rich socialites turning into vampires. In a sort of Lost Boys flip of the script, this one might end up being a genre classic. We’ll have to see when it releases in November.
