But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful... and altogether terrifying.

Worth the watch
This is a much watch for slow burn psychological horror fans.
I’ll admit, for the first hour, it dragged a little - to the point where the movie was only able to keep half my attention. But after that first hour - hoo boy - pretty much redeems the whole movie. From that point, I couldn’t look away. Great ending.
Nice job Shudder you've earned this months fee. Watch this and then a 6 minute short called "Temp to Perm" if you can.
A sad and at times touching film. The body horror is sufficiently upsetting and the lead inspires an awful lot of empathy. Good stuff.
