VIDEO: You're Invited to the Lesbian Vampire Pool Party in Import Horror We Are the Night
There's nothing like a little Euro-centric lesbian vampire tale to spice up your week. After the jump, watch a tantalizing exclusive new clip from Dennis Gansel's salacious vampire lesbian horror pic We Are the Night, in which newfound vamp Lena (Karoline Herfurth) finds herself in the middle of a sapphic bloodsucker pool party with a few uninvited (and ill-fated) guests.
Think less Twilight and something more along the lines of 1983's The Hunger (x 2) meets Sex and the City, because these luscious ladies are all about living the high undead life. I'm also digging the emerging theme in European vampire flicks of late: Poolside massacres, executed here with similar aplomb, suspense, and vivid watery clouds of scarlet to the Tomas Alfredson Swedish kid vamp pic Let the Right One In. (And its American remake.)
The synopsis, from IFC Midnight:
A sexy, suspenseful and adrenaline pumping vampire film, WE ARE THE NIGHT is an edgy tale of a provocative gang of female vampires living large, making their own rules and leaving a merciless trail of blood. The film centers on a 20-year-old Berlin native LENA (Karoline Herfurth) who gets by as a petty thief. On one of her nightly job runs through an underground club, she meets 250-year-old LOUISE (Nina Hoss). Don't let her age fool you. LOUISE is a glamorous vixen, who is not only the owner of the club, but also the leader of an unusual all-female vampire trio -- the other two members being wild child NORA (Anna Fischer) and elegant CHARLOTTE (Jennifer Ulrich). Louise falls head over heels in love with the scruffy Lena and bites her during their first night together. Once bitten, LENA discovers the curse and the blessing of her new, eternal life. She revels in the glamour, parties and infinite freedom. But she quickly discovers that the endless blood thirst and murderous appetite of her new girlfriends come at a steep price. When Berlin police commissioner TOM SERNER (Max Riemelt) begins investigating the women, it is just a matter of time before their day comes and events spiral out of control.
We Are the Night is in limited release in NYC and is now available on VOD.
