Only the Dead is a short film from Maid & Prince Productions set in the dying breaths of the 19th century. This fragmented fable about power, helplessness, and hunger is a grimy, go-for-the-jugular waltz between its two female characters. A young girl, Alice, is held prisoner in a dark room awaiting her fate. Hawthorn, a hell-bent vampire hunter, believes Alice's vampiric blood is the key, holding the power to take back the world from corrupt and patriarchal regimes on the precipice of their own destruction. The film asks should we become a monster to fight monsters, and would it be worth it?
