Body horror about a girl with a skin condition. To say shades of Cronenberg would be a massive understatement, but this one just about holds its own. As an allegory of society's obsession with youth and beauty, it works pretty well, despite a few dubious plot turns. It's very nicely shot and the all-female cast do a fine job. 7/10

I thought this was ridiculous but entertaining. The make up effects were weak letting it down a bit. it just looked like porridge spread on the skin. unfortunately BC was a bit hammy
