Well-paced horror that slowly itches under your skin.
the acting and body positivity was just what I needed, the amount of openness allowed for a level of respect on this film. I was disappointed, for the amount of thrill was weak.
good. a little too steamy (it's a french movie, so...) to keep the focus on the horror. I give it a four because the vibes are clear but not much horror happens until later and everything in between is, well...
One of the best LGBTQ horror movies I've seen, especially in the era of anonymous hookup culture.
Great Film ~420
