"Yeah I don't think anyone's seen something like this before…" IFC Midnight has released a trailer for the weird Sundance Midnight film Antibirth, a wacky drug-trip-gone-wrong horror-comedy starring Natasha Lyonne and Chloë Sevigny. The twisted pregnancy plot involves a "wild-eyed stoner" waking up after a seriously "wild night of partying with symptoms of a strange illness and recurring visions as she struggles to get a grip on reality." The full cast includes Meg Tilly, Emmanuel Kabongo, Corey Pascall and Mark Webber. There's some totally frickin' wacky, disgusting and completely insane stuff in this trailer, I don't even know what to make of it. But if you're into trippy, crazy, unlike-anything-else horror - give this a shot.
Here's the first official trailer for Danny Perez's Antibirth, direct from IFC Midnight's YouTube:
Hard-drinking, pill-popping, bong-ripping Lou (Lyonne) and her best friend Sadie (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 is both written and directed by Danny Perez, making his feature directorial debut. This first premiered at Sundance 2016 in the Midnight category. IFC Midnight will open Antibirth in theaters + VOD on September 2nd. Anyone?
