Gritty takes on the vampire mythos are nothing new. Filmmakers like George Romero (Martin), Abel Ferrara (The Addiction) and Larry Fessenden (Habit) have given us downbeat, unromanticized movies that view vampires as victims of disease or addiction. Debut director Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration follows this path to some degree, but it’s not short on romance. Indeed, you’re unlikely to see a more romantic movie all year.... READ ON

(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- One of the most legendary clubs in Asbury Park music history was only open for a few years, didn't serve booze, and was literally open all night long until the early hours of the morning.
