Cinema Clips: Antibirth

Posted By on Mon, Sep 12, 2016 at 12:05 PM


If you are a fan of directors like David Cronenberg and Dario Argento, then you might be able to make it through this rather unpleasant horror-comedy.

A party girl (Natasha Lyonne) blacks out at a rambunctious gathering and finds herself going through pregnancy symptoms shortly thereafter. Those symptoms go from standard nausea to skin peeling off and teeth falling out, and she eventually discovers there’s something well beyond standard procreating at play.

Chloe Sevigny costars as a fellow, low class party girl for director Danny Perez, whose film gets progressively gross up until the really, really gross birthing scene.

Argento and early Cronenberg were never my cup of tea; I just don’t get down with most body horror scenarios. That said, this film will certainly have an appeal to those who like their horror hardcore when it comes to the gore quotient. As for the story, it’s a muddled affair involving drug addicts, space aliens and Rosemary’s Baby-like setups.

Don’t watch this if you hated movies like The Human Centipede, Rabid and Deep Red. If that sort of extreme horror isn’t to your liking, this is liable to put you in a really bad mood.
