There really isn't that much to say about the premise of this film. The story is all but irrelevant, a common occurrence in arthouse horror. This one went for depraved fever dream, and it succeeded.
But a handful of things felt cheep and unnecessary. Certain effects were used that left me wondering what the point was of it. It wasn't visually engaging, it wasn't stomach-churning, it wasn't even bizarre. It was just... odd.
It was disturbing, disgusting, confusing, and all around depraved in a way that few films dare to be, and even fewer manage to pull off.
If you don't like that kind of thing, turn away now. This film is a stomach-churning roller coaster without a safety bar, and you will regret it.
