About this submission

On a camping trip, a trio of midwestern teens share scary stories, one of which being about the mysterious "Mosquito Queen of Lake Erie", a vampiric creature who turns men into mosquitos and abducts women to join her sisterhood. This film is an expression of the alienating feelings that come from being a young queer person with a crush on someone who doesn't like you back, and all the scary possessive impulses that follow. Desperate for control over her life, Vivian has her best friend (and crush) Audrey turned into a mosquito queen so they can be together forever.
