This movie is trying way too hard to be Eraserhead,as much as I'm sure the director would deny it.
It has some mildly amusing moments, but is mostly weird and disturbing for the sake of being weird and disturbing,which we've all seen a million times before. Yawn. The acting is beyond terrible, it's boring, and unoriginal.
The movie is as low budget as it can get, this is understandable, but they could have at least tried to do something interesting with the way it looks, considering how horrible the content of the movie was.
Overall, I'd say this is akin to a really bad student film. So if you like really bad student films with heaps of contrived strangeness, then this is the movie for you.
