Churchill

Churchill

They’ve called him the Greatest Briton who ever lived, they’ve called him many other things, to be sure, but one thing they would never call him is a coward.

Antibirth

When you live in a small town in Michigan there isn’t a lot to do. So, Lou keeps herself busy by partying as much as possible. Tonight, like any other night, Lou and her friend Sadie hit a party and have a good time. The next day Lou doesn’t remember much about what happened that night, but Sadie said everything was cool. Then all of a sudden Lou starts feeling sick and that’s when she finds out she’s pregnant.

This movie is American-Canadian body horror and writer/director Danny Perez’s first feature film. Perez said the reason he created the script was to “subvert a lot of female archetypes.”

Back in September 2016, thanks to IFC Midnight getting the rights, the film had a limited theater release and it could be found on VOD. If you are curious about this one, as of March 2017, you can find it on Netflix.
