Chloë Sevigny returns for new punk-rock horror, Antibirth

Watch the gory (and seriously NSFW) trailer here

The first trailer for Danny Perez’s debut feature Antibirth – starring Chloë Sevigny and Orange Is The New Black’s Natasha Lyonne – has officially dropped. Packed full of gross-out body horror and trippy twists, the film focuses on the immaculate conception of a pill-popping war veteran called Lou. According to the official synopsis, the character’s “highly abnormal” pregnancy quickly descends into a nightmarish chaos; becoming like a “bad trip that never ends.”

“Spiked with blasts of hallucinatory colour, surreal shocks, and subversive comedy, the audacious feature debut from Danny Perez is a no-holds-barred descent into delirium,” it reads. “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.”

The film sees Lyonne take on the role of Lou, with Sevigny playing her best friend Sadie. It made the rounds at most major film festivals this year, and was described by critics as “epically fucked up”, “ugly”, and “gross as hell.”

Antibirth is set to hit cinemas and VOD on September 2.
