This perverse, blood-drenched horror film from France stars Emmanuelle Escourrou as Yanka, a young pregnant woman whose lamentable existence as a circus employee is made a bit more harrowing when a slimy parasite leaps from the body of one of the zoo's leopards and enters her womb. Possessed of an evil intelligence and cranky disposition, the organism transforms her fetus into a snarling little jerk of a monster with a curious interest in human nature and an insatiable thirst for blood. Drifting from town to town, Yanka supplies the unborn creature with new victims, all the while conversing with the chatty little monster (making for some of the weirdest dialogue scenes in film history) and heeding its instructions to carry it back to the sea which spawned it... it seems the creature is some sort of intelligent mutant form of sea sludge, born of industrial pollutants and whatnot. Pretty disgusting stuff, but gorehounds with a wry sense of humor will probably lap it up. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
This is a quirky and offbeat French horror film that was at least interesting to watch. There's enough blood to fill the Louvre and Emmanuelle Escourrou has a body that tempts evil, and that's how the whole story gets started. Luckily, the viewers get to see exactly why the Bad Squirmy Thing wanted to possess her. Vive la France! Definitely a much better film than a lot of the standard American shlock we have to put with over here. Bon voyage!
