Directed by Harrison Atkins
During a getaway with her friends, Ruth (Lindsay Burdge) decides to brave the night inside a haunted pool house. But instead of getting spooked, she lures a gorgeous ghost out of hiding and winds up having a haunted hookup. The next day, Ruth begins having ectoplasmic night sweats, spontaneous skin peels and other scary symptoms. Could she have caught something from the spirit’s schwanz? And is there a cure? Mumblegore meets body horror in Harrison Atkin’s delightful dip in the same metaphoric lake as IT FOLLOWS. The always fearless Burdge (THIRST STREET) delivers another unhinged, must-see performance. Contains strong language, nudity and gore.
A young woman begins experiencing freaky bodily changes after having sex with a ghost.
Cast: Lindsay Burdge, Peter Vack, Jennifer Kim
the writing was a little off, I think all her friends are dicks. wished she paid a visit to the ghost more like I feel like he could provide more exposition. and the ending could have been wrapped up nicer. soundtrack was dope, and the premise was solid with great acting on behalf of our leading lady. overall I actually really enjoyed it. its oddly romantic to be fated to spend eternity with someone. I hope someone tries this premise again but with a little more of a budget, because overall this could have been fantastic.
Okay, so what happened? I'm assuming she died, but did her friends call the coroner? Did they throw her body in the swamp? Did she and the guy ghost go on together?
This is a weird one indeed. Avoid if you are looking for a typical horror movie, you will be disappointed It's quirky, slow, unconfortable, detached and cute at the same time. Very strange mix. I never saw anything like this before so I supposed I liked it even if I wanted more when it ended. The closeups and shaky shots created a nice feeling of intimacy and the acting was very good. Also, amazing soundtrack by Neon Indian.
The dangers of supernatural sex. The lead actress has a very expressive face which is good as the script sort of meanders all over the place. The burlap sack ghost design is original though.
It was a bit slow, but interesting. The ending a bit lackluster.
