Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person

Watch trailer

A refreshing take on the vampire genre, skillfully blending dark comedy, coming-of-age, and mumblecore. The film revolves around Sasha, a teenage vampire struggling with an unusual predicament – she's too sensitive to kill.

Sasha's dilemma intensifies when her exasperated parents cut off her blood supply, putting her life in jeopardy. Salvation comes in the form of Paul, a lonely teenager with suicidal tendencies who willingly offers his life to save hers. What begins as a friendly agreement evolves into a nocturnal quest to fulfill Paul's last wishes before the break of day.

Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person is a savage parody of teen romance within the vampire mythos. Sasha's late-blooming vampiric nature sets the tone, juxtaposing horror, comedy, and drama. The film creatively uses vampire lore to express the universal struggles of adolescence and creates a ghoulish yet oddly familiar family dynamic. It is a lighthearted crowd-pleaser and seamlessly blends humor and heartwarming moments.


Ariane Louis-Seize is a Canadian film director and screenwriter from Quebec. Her debut feature film, Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person premiered at the 80th Venice International Film Festival and won the award for Best Director in the Giornate degli Autori program.
