ANTIBIRTH Trailer Suggests Strongly That Pregnancy Can Be Horrifying
As a man who is no way resembles Arnold Schwarzenegger in Junior, I cannot become pregnant (as far as I know), yet a new trailer for Antibirth suggests that it is still a horrifying possibility for any person.
Natasha Lyonne stars in the movie, and the cast includes Chloë Sevigny and Meg Tilly (*sigh of unrequited love*), and their talents guarantee, I would hope, a great basis for enjoyment.
Synopsis: Hard-drinking, pill-popping, bong-ripping Lou (Natasha Lyonne) and her best friend Sadie (Chloë Sevigny) spend their days adrift in a druggy haze. But one wild night out becomes a bad trip that never ends when Lou wakes up with symptoms of an unexplained, highly abnormal pregnancy. Who -- or what -- is growing inside her?
As her due date approaches with alarming swiftness, the fear, paranoia, and conspiracy theories begin to pile up. Spiked with blasts of hallucinatory color, surreal shocks, and subversive comedy, the audacious feature debut from Danny Perez is a no-holds-barred descent into delirium.
Antibirth will open in select theaters, on VOD, and via digital platforms on September 2 (Labor Day weekend -- ha ha!) from IFC Midnight. Watch the trailer below, though be aware that it's likely NSFW for most people.
