Celebrate 30 years of world class LGBTIQ+ cinema in style with MQFF.
First things first, Bit is the queer answer to The Lost Boys we have all been waiting for and so much more. Lauren (played by Nicole Maines from TV’s Supergirl) is your typical 18-year-old, restless, bored and looking to escape her life at home. When an opportunity to join her brother in LA comes up, Lauren jumps at the chance. Not long in the City of Angels Lauren is lured into the pose of a cliquey gang of queer feminist vampires, led by the charismatic Duke (Diana Hopper), who are hellbent on ridding LA of ‘problematic’ men. Their only rule for joining this gnarly gang of women is – ‘No. Fucking.Boys! A rule you break at your own peril as we discover in the bloody opening scene.
This sharp, fun and wickedly subversive take on the vampire genre has a lot to love, most of all the casting of transgender actor Nicole Maines, who’s role is a great step forward in representation.
“Bit is much more than a typical genre film, it bites with robust feminine force and leaves a notable mark of representation.”
