Controversial ‘Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person’ trailer sparks debate online

Enlightened Vampire Seeks Willing Suicidal Individual transcends the ordinary with its captivating title. Chronicling the journey of a teenage vampire who shuns feeding on humans due to her profound sensitivity, film editor Kristy Puchko describes the film as “a horror-comedy with a sharp edge and genuine emotion.”

In her directorial debut, Ariane Louis-Seize brings us Enlightened Vampire Seeks Willing Suicidal Individual, which centers on Sasha (Sara Montpetit), a young bloodsucker whose access to nourishment is severed by her parents when she refuses to prey on humans. As she faces the imminent loss of her immortality, she crosses paths with Paul (Félix Antoine-Bénard), a teenager consumed by thoughts of death, and they strike a poignant pact. Embarking on a journey to fulfill Paul’s end-of-life wishes, a peculiar connection blossoms between the two.

“One might not anticipate such tenderness from a film that kicks off with a clown massacre,” remarks Puchko. “Yet Enlightened Vampire Seeks Willing Suicidal Individual seamlessly weaves its darker themes with touches of whimsy, wit, and delicate romance, delivering a vampire narrative that is both exhilarating and a delightfully macabre experience.”

Enlightened Vampire Seeks Willing Suicidal Individual will premiere in New York City and Los Angeles theaters on June 21, followed by a nationwide release across the United States.
