In The Shed, a high schooler (Jay Jay Warren) and his closest buddy (Cody Kostro) discover a bloodthirsty feral vampire living in a shed in the backyard. Their initial instinct to destroy it is overcome by a more dastardly scheme: feed the local bullies to the beast and thin out the douchebag population. Somewhat reminiscent of Saki’s famous short story, Sredni Vashtar, this low-budget horror is directed with some pizazz by Frank Sabatella. Monica Film Center, 1332 2nd St., Santa Monica, Fri., Nov. 15, various showtimes; $9-$12. (310) 478-3836.
