Storyline

During a rough period in her life, beautiful Samantha reluctantly decides to attend her best friend's party, and even though she still struggles with a previous addiction, she unwisely accepts a drink from a complete stranger. As a result, shortly after, hapless Samantha considerably inebriated, she will end up raped in the backseat of the malicious predator's car, however, from that point on, the terrible incident will be the least of her problems. Straight away and rather inexplicably, poor Samantha will begin noticing rapid and drastic organic changes in her body, and being unable to pinpoint the origin of the dramatic transformation, within the next 72 hours, she will embrace her gruesome and pitiless fate as well as the certainty that she is falling apart. Literally. Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

When Sam returns to the restaurant where she works, she asks her co-worker Jerry at the bar if George (the manager) is around. He says "not right now, but I wouldn't stay here too long - he's still pretty upset about the other day." Based on the time line of events shown in the film and assuming Jerry is referring to a customer finding Sam's bloody, rotten fingernail in her salad, which actually had just happened earlier that day as it was indicated earlier this is Day 3 Of 3, Jerry's response doesn't make sense.

Were all the people around her blind, or just idiots?
17 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie started out well, with the potential to become an effective, disturbing and scary "horror-movie-with-a-side-of-cautionary-tale".

However, the way all the other characters acted around Samantha (except maybe the doctor) practically ruined the movie for me. I mean, for god's sake.... both her eyes are bloodshot, she's losing her hair, she's white as a sheet with visible blue veins, her nails are bloody and falling off, and nobody reacts with more than a "oh, you should probably get that looked at"?

And by the time she has sex with that guy, one of her eyes is white and she has a huge scab on her mouth and rotting teeth. And he still wanted to schtup her? What was he, blind? Give me a break.

It's too bad, because it otherwise could have been a scarier and more shocking movie. By the last half hour I was groaning at the other characters' absurd reactions to her obviously deteriorated state. I kept thinking that perhaps there was supposed to be some satire that I just wasn't seeing, a la "Shaun of the Dead", but there wasn't. Disappointing overall.
