REVIEW: AntiBirth  (Fantasia 2016)

Look out The Brood. Step aside It’s Alive. Brundlefly has nothing on Natasha Lyonne as Lou in Danny Perez’ phenomenal AntiBirth. The film is seedy, gritty, taking a dark, humorous, gory look into the life of an addict who gets into more trouble than she can handle. She is slipped an experimental drug which affects her in horrific, frightening ways. The ending contains scenes that are difficult to forget. Doc and Thomas dive into a unique offering from this years Fantasia International Film Festival.

Derek provides the skinny on the convention and the history of how the horror track finally grew out of a variety of other tracks, eventually bringing in horror movies to accent the literary tone the convention has promoted for 30 years. Derek is striving to elevate the track by bringing in horror film discussions from modern films to influential films from the past decades of horror.
