Like some elaborate superhero movie in an odd yet consistent world, made not of super-science and radioactive spiders but female biology and imposed fear.
Feminist horror and queer masterpiece. Camp brilliance.
I got 40 minutes into it. Can’t quite justify continuing. I’ve gotten choosier with age I guess. But the lack of tension and plotlessness after half the film just doesn’t work for me, even if I liked the lead young lady’s energy and commitment.
