It's too bad because from watching the preview it looked good. It'svery misleading. Seems like they tried too hard to make an "artsy"movie (lots of unnecessary slow motion, close ups and over exaggeratednoises). It's a shame because it could've been a really goodpsychological thriller. I can say that the actresses were somewhatgood. Both were annoying and I believe that was their goal in thismovie. The downside was, I didn't care about what happened to either ofthem. They never pulled me in enough to root for one or the other. Ifyou are into slow burning thrillers that have a big time indie feel tothem and fall short at the end, you may like this. To me it was acomplete waste of time.
I have mixed feelings about this film.The acting is good and the basis of the story is good. But theexecution of bringing them together with technical aspects of filmmaking lets it down and they just don't work together nicely in asmoothly coherent way.There are lingering scenes which linger for no reason. They go on toolong after the point has been made and don't really flow into the nextscene too well. I found at times there were some scene cuts that could have done with alittle more visual explanation to flow - rather than abruptly jump fromone concept to another.This could have been a very good film if a bit more care had been takenin telling the story. I am sure it made sense in the crew's mind butthey didn't relay it to the audience.The acting was good - especially the two lead females.Such a shame.
6.25 of 10. Are they roommates or just 2 versions of the same personhappening within a psychotic aspiring model with a tendency to binge oneating, sex, and self abuse? Either way, you get 2 similar lookingactresses, a slender model and a plump mess, playing the lead rolls.As simply horror and gore, it doesn't pick up until the latter part ofthe film. The first half is essentially dedicated to setting up thecharacters and their/her various disorders/psychoses. That does set upa mystery angle to it and make the film more enjoyable and lesspredictable as to where it's going.It's rare to get so much character depth, plot, gross-out scenes,horror, and hot ass shots in the same film. Worth a watch even thoughit makes a mistake at the end with not really completing the story andgoing with more of a setup for a sequel.
A horror film dealing with eating disorders and mental illness. Thisone has a young lady named Jill who has given up on life and has letherself go in every aspect. Never bothering to work or even wash shejust hangs around the house cooking or eating. She gets the odd Skypecall from her alcoholic mother who doesn't appear to have all herbuttons. Jill stays with a roommate who is her exact opposite and worksas a model. Jill hits her breaking point after a fight and chains upher roommate in the bathroom kicking the film into gear.This film is like a food porn. Its repulsive for sure when you get theclose ups of chewed food in someone's mouth or food all over there faceand all over there clothes but that is what you get here. The directorliked doing trippy sequences in vivid colour of Gummy Worms, cakes andPop Tarts being chewed, smashed and spit out. The place where theylived has never been cleaned and you can just imagine the vileness. Itwas just a disgusting film and I liked it.The music in this one is superb. The same dude that did Starry Eyesmusic did this one. The dream sequences were well shot as well. Youmight get perturbed with the ending but not too bad overall. If youdon't get grossed out watching people eat with there mouths open allthe time you'll be able to watch this one.
I can immediately tell that this flick isn't for everybody becausethere's a bit of vomiting here and there and it moves slowly from anormal flick into a psychological flick towards a bit of horror towardsthe end. It's all about being fat or being skinny. The fat one not being popularand is always eating things, fast food and unhealthy food. The skinnyone is popular and can eat what she wants and is having sex all thetime. Living together of course the fat one can't take it anymore andwants to become the skinny popular girl. Or is there more to watch. Ican understand that it's all the same girl having problems with eating.Which one you are watching is up to you and will be revealed towardsthe end.What some will have problems with is the use of a lot of slo-mo shots.And they always include eating going into the mouth or being spit outor vomiting. The horror towards the end does deliver here and there butfor many I can tell it will all be too late because the first half ofthis flick it's about the characterisation. Not for everybody or everybody...Gore 0/5 Nudity 0,5/5 Effects 2/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
