After months of anticipation, the new horror film Bit starring Supergirl‘s Nicole Maines finally has a trailer and release date! A fresh take on the classic vampire movie, Bit follows the story of Laurel (Maines) who finds herself thrust into a whole new world when she encounters a group of feminist vampires after moving to Los Angeles. The official synopsis states:
Desperate to get away from her small-town roots and find a like-minded community, Laurel hits the road for Los Angeles as soon as she graduates from high school. Sure, people in L.A. are different, but do these people seem extra different? Yes, they do, because they are vampires. On her first night out in the city, Laurel attends a warehouse party and befriends a mysterious group of punk feminist women, led by the intimidating Duke. Laurel is surprised to have met her people so quickly, but her luck turns when one of them feeds on her blood and leaves her for dead. Waking up and realizing she might have become a vampire, Laurel confronts the women who converted her and is given a choice: go back to a boring life or join an ultra-cool vampire squad. Could it possibly be that simple? Of course not.
Maines is best known for her groundbreaking role as Nia Nal/Dreamer on The CW’s Supergirl and for her work as a transgender rights activist. Bit has received rave reviews since screening at festivals like Outfest. Bit also stars M.C. Gainey, Friday Chamberlain, Diana Hopper, James Paxton, Zolee Griggs, Greg Hill, and Char Diaz. It is directed by Brad Michael Elmore.
Bit will be released on-demand on April 24. Check out the new trailer below!
