‘My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To’ Unleashes a Powerful New Type of Vampire Story
My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell it To is a powerful step in vampiric storytelling. The latest Neo-noir tale from Dark Sky films weaves together a new look at a familiar genre and comes at you with a relentless pace. The trailer is one of those that simply pulls you in. If you are a fan of vampires. There is no way you don’t need to see this move right after watching it.
The synopsis for My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To goes like this:
Dwight (Patrick Fugit) prowls the streets after dark. He searches each night for the lonely and forlorn, looking for people who won’t be missed. Dwight takes no joy in this, but he needs their blood. Without fresh human blood, his fragile young brother Thomas cannot survive. Each death takes a larger toll, the burden of his crimes weighing heavier each time, threatening to crack his spirit. But Thomas (Owen Campbell) and his sister Jessie (Ingrid Sophie Schram) are all the family Dwight has left, and as a fiercely private and close-knit family unit, they depend on him and the rituals they’ve learned in order to keep their secret. But while Dwight yearns for another life, Jessie needs them to stay together. And always the boy must feed.
It brings to mind an earlier flesh-eating film title We Are What We Are. Much like that one this grounds a subject deeply into a relatable shell.
This one lands in select theaters and VOD beginning June 25.
