Currently available on Netflix.

The movie is a bit all over the place, but does manage to defy some expectations. Do NOT watch the trailer as it spoilers a rather major plot point for genre savvy viewers. I don't know who cuts some of these trailers, but they need to be smacked.

There's some truly effective body horror, but there's a lot of reliance on not so great cgi, which took me out of the story.

Trigger warning for drug use and self harm.
