Antibirth (2016)
October 27, 2018 8:39 AM - Subscribe

Hard-drinking, pill-popping, bong-ripping Lou (Natasha Lyonne) and her best friend Sadie (Chloë Sevigny) spend their days adrift in a druggy haze. But one wild night out becomes a bad trip that never ends when Lou wakes up with symptoms of an unexplained, highly abnormal pregnancy. Who-or what-is growing inside her? As her due date approaches with alarming swiftness, the fear, paranoia, and conspiracy theories begin to pile up.

Thank you for reminding me of this. I watched it while ago and it's pretty hilarious and gross and generally fun.

I'm glad to hear it's fun. That summary sounds terrifying.

I wouldn't have thought there would be a movie that would try to stitch together the disparate vibes of Cronenbergian body horror, Rosemary's Baby, the short stories of Denis Johnson, and maybe even a little bit of Repo Man, but here we are. I was interested and entertained throughout, but I am unclear on how much of that was the oddball story/direction and how much of that was the considerable charisma of Natasha Lyonne.

But I was never bored.
