Self-possessed teenager Heather (Bobbi Salvör Menuez) is a high school loner, big sister and competent ice hockey goalie from a troubled but loving home. Her family shares a chilling supernatural secret that ultimately cannot be kept hidden as Heather begins to assert her sexuality upon meeting the beautiful neighbourhood girl Jonny, played with enigmatic perfection by Amandla Stenberg of The Hunger Games, The Hate U Give and Bodies Bodies Bodies. As their relationship deepens and her parental troubles accelerate, the dark power that lives inside Heather will soon be unleashed.
The 1980s setting for this brilliant teen horror allows for a sensational soundtrack and a super-cool Stranger Things aesthetic that you will adore. We are thrilled to present the European Premiere of this future queer classic to our audience in Dublin. Bring a friend, a cushion, and beware the blood moon...

Sue and Ellie share an unspoken love that is gradually transforming into something much deeper, sweeter and more meaningful. Often when we are the ones closest to the truth, we are the very last people to see it.
