Verdict: Body Horror With Characters We Don’t Care About

 

Story: Antibirth starts as we meet Lou (Lyonne) a wild party animal stoner who awakes with pregnancy symptoms that she doesn’t remember having the sex to become pregnant. Lou along with her best friend Sadie (Sevigny) look to understand what could have happened that night in question.

It isn’t long before Lou starts suffering strange symptoms that leave her wondering is it a side effect from the drugs or real and we are left to see just how far the body horror can go.

Antibirth comes off like a body horror that we follow a string of truly unlikeable characters. This doesn’t help us at all because we just don’t care about Lou and what she is going through as she never feels like a victim. The final act of this film does go into direction that never fully gets hinted and it does work for a saving part of this film. Most of the build up to the final act comes off feeling very flat because we just have Lou taking drugs on repeat.

 

Overall: Body horror with an interesting twist.

Blade Trinity (2004)

Director: David S Goyer

Starring: Wesley Snipes, Kris Krisofferson, Dominic Purcell, Jessica Biel, Ryan Reynolds, Parker Posey, Mark Berry, John Michael Higgins, Callum Keith Rennie, Paul Levensque, Paul Anthony, James Remar, Natasha Lyonne, Patton Oswalt

The third movie in the Blade series and guess what? they ran out of original ideas for villains and went with Dracula well Drake (Dominic Purcell) is his official name. So basically the baddie vamps lead by Danica (Parker Posey) her brother Asher and their bodyguard figure Jarko Grimewood (Triple H). These guys decide to raise Drake to help take over the world blah blah blah.

On the good guys side Blade (Wesley Snipes) has to deal with the death of Whistler ( Kris Kristofferson) when he is saved by Whistlers daughter Abigail (Jessica Biel) yes this is a major storyline plot hole but it gets explained as an unwed lock baby. she is aided by Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) and the rest of the Night Stalkers.

Both sides have ways to stop the other the vamps try to become day walkers by using Drake’s blood while the night stalkers want to create a virus that could take out the vampires forever.

David S. Goyer directs and does an OK job if u believe reports of how Wesley Snipes was meant to have behaved thought out shooting. Ryan Reynolds and Triple H steal the movie with great supporting performances.

Overall this a good movie just for a little blood splatter and fun action one liners and sequences i will give it a 81%
