This movie will gross out some viewers, but others, including Troma survivors, will shrug and ask what's the big deal. Yes, it includes scenes of anal-oral interaction; yes, it includes a fair amount of well-simulated feces. And yet what discomfited me the most was when the main characters acted out in public as horribly obnoxious jerks, so my perspective may be atypical.
A clinical description: Adah and Aaron are a woman and a man who find their romantic prospects circumscribed by herpes. They find solace in each other's rear ends, and in inhalants. The infection and the drug use escalate, culminating in physical changes that are bizarre and humorously symbolic.
So it's a comic-horror-fantasy-gross out story. Does the director intend this as a satire/lament/celebration of the ongoing mainstreaming of heterosexual anal intercourse? Or as a serious warning of the dangers of drugs couched in raunchy hyperbole? Or, given that Adah, her brother Adam, and their parents are played by real world sister, brother, and parents, maybe it's just a group of slightly weird people, very comfortable with one another, playing together to stay together? I don't know.
Whatever it's meant to be, it's entertaining. It's funny once in a while, gross much of the time, and usually well-acted. Better special effects at the end would have helped, but I'm amazed that any funding was found for this, so kudos to the Brown family. Hmm... maybe this film was borne from word association!
