The feature film debut of filmmaker Danny Perez, Antibirth is a messed up body horror comedy about a woman who becomes pregnant under mysterious circumstances. Lou lives a dead-end life as motel housekeeper, who spends most of her free time getting drunk or high. As such, it is not unusual that she blacked out after a night of hard partying. What is unusual is that Lou has mysteriously become pregnant, which is having a very adverse affect on her body and mind.
Antibirth is a film that you can file under "really messed up dark comedies that you will either love or hate." In typical body horror fashion, there are many gross-out moments, ranging from Lou pulling dead skin off of her neck or puncturing a very gooey blister on her foot. While I was divided on Antibirth for most of the running time, I was finally sold by the film's completely insane ending, which I was not expecting at all. Antibirth is definitely a film for those whole like messed up and gross weirdness.
