Orange Is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne and American Horror Story's Chloë Sevigny have been friends and collaborators for almost two decades, and now the dynamic duo recently promoted their fourth project, Antibirth, at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Danny Perez's debut feature is a bizarre new horror movie that will make you cringe. According to IMDb, the movie is about a strange illness that takes shape in the form of a pregnancy and infects the main character Lou (Natasha Lyonne).
"In a desolate community full of drug-addled Marines and rumors of kidnapping, a wild-eyed stoner named Lou wakes up after a wild night of partying with symptoms of a strange illness and recurring visions as she struggles to get a grip on reality while stories of conspiracy spread."
One of my Moviepilot coworkers was lucky enough to sit down with the filmmaker to discuss the film, and here's what he had to say about it without giving away too much of the plot.
"I would just say it's a visceral fever dream that involves a woman, and she's trying to investigate this biological infection and then we kind of go down this wormhole to a kind of graphic conclusion."
From all accounts, "visceral" is the appropriate description. Reviewers have been saying that the film includes a gag-inducing, gory ending with plenty of blood splatter and nasty bodily secretions.
Although we still don't know a ton about Antibirth at the moment, it's certainly making waves at Sundance and getting people talking.
