Contemporary horror at its finest. You have never seen a coming of age film like this, and you’ll never forget it. Worth watching twice in a row.
The only positive aspect of this film is the acting which is mediocre at best. This film has horrible one note characters, as well as horrible writing. The gore effects aren't that impressive. The film takes it's stupid idea way too seriously, even at one point calling the vagina teeth the next step in human evolution. The logic of the vagina teeth is horribly inconsistent. The score for the film sounds like it's from an awful stock website. There are many scenes that are supposed to be serious that just come off of funny and dumb. 2/10
