Here’s the thing, if you’re a trans horror fan like me looking for some horror with trans people in it, this ain’t it. If you’re looking for a sexy queer movie, you also might want to look elsewhere because the only sex in this movie is straight up rape. If you’re looking for a truly odd feminist movie, go for it. Honestly though, by the end of this flick is was waiting for it to just end
It is bizarre, yet intriguing. You simply can't look away and need to know what happens. It's sort of a train wreck, but at the same time it makes sense. I really HAD to watch it until the end. Regrets? I've had a few, haha.
Cool as Hell.
Beautifully sickening. An amazing tone of gender fluidity and power of woman. Totally awesome sexual imagery and art. The actresses... f-omg brilliant. Hot as boys, sexy as women. Just phenomenal.
