I truly enjoyed this film-- It shows the realities of addiction in a compelling way. I don't think it falls too neatly into the horror genre, but I think it can definitely be appreciated by Shudders demographic nevertheless. Another post suggested creating a Dark Drama category, which I think is a fantastic idea! Horror is a large and varied genre, not to mention, highly a subjective one.

I really like this kind of film, and would love it if Shudder added a Dark Drama category. I recommend this, it’s a compelling story but not a great work of art or anything. Just a tale of what happens to a few people when they sink lower than low. If you want a horror story and not a horrible story, you’ll want to pass.

This ain't not horror movie doo. Nevertheless, it's a good druggie/homeless movie.
