Review: Antibirth, terror in the womb

I’m going to agree with Ryan on this one; not as much plot as I would like for the build-up, but Antibirth does deliver in the final act. I would say it’s worth watching (as it is free on Netflix streaming), especially if you’re a fan of Natasha Lyonne. I can guarantee that the final moments will give you something that A. you were not expecting and B. you have NOT seen anywhere else!

Pregnancy in horror dates way back, it’s a trope that exploits a very real fear in people—it’s also a go to for the genre when it’s looking for an excuse to turn a few stomachs. It’s that idea of terror in the womb that can give a horror film a razor sharp edge, so it’s not at all surprising to see filmmakers regularly taking advantage of it. Danny Perez’s Antibirth explores similar ground, only injecting it with a sleazy atmosphere and twisted humor. In it, Lou wakes up after a wild night of partying with symptoms of a strange illness and recurring visions as she struggles to get a grip on reality while stories of conspiracy spread.
