    This is a very good film, but given the state of things, it’s difficult to write about in standard reviewspeak. To praise its effectiveness as “body horror” would seem to trivialize its subject matter, as would comparing it to similarly-themed works like 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days or Never Rarely Sometimes Always. Likewise, to criticize it for being a bit more polemic than character study would seem to miss the point. Essential viewing. Impossible to recommend. Check on your friends, especially those with wombs.

    The Burning apes the Friday the 13th formula so faithfully that it’s difficult not to compare the two. There are some fantastic kills, but the Meatballs of it all consumes so much of the runtime that its sense of tension only plays in fits and starts. If pressed, I’d probably rank it among the lower end of Friday’s Paramount era, which means I still had a pretty good time watching it.

Driver, of whom I’m generally a huge fan, feels particularly miscast here, too naturally mild-mannered to sink his teeth into Maurizio’s aggressive side and…
