IFC Midnight acquires Antibirth, starring Lyonne, Sevigny, Tilly

Danny Perez Antibirth

IFC Midnight has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to writer/director Danny Perez's ANTIBIRTH, a film we first heard about two years ago and which, judging by the image above, appears to be quite bizarre.

Described as a "visually-captivating punk rock thriller", ANTIBIRTH stars Natasha Lyonne and Chloë Sevigny as 

trailer dweller Lou and her best friend Sadie, who spend most of their nights steeped in a murky haze of pot smoke and booze-filled TV-watching sessions, venturing out on occasion to party in a desolate community full of drug-addled ex-marines and other miscreants of society. After an otherwise normal night of self-destructive behavior, Lou awakens with symptoms of a bizarre illness and psychosomatic, recurring visions that she can’t seem to shake. Unfazed, she continues with her hard-living ways, but even her frequent bong rips don’t fully explain the shitstorm swirling around in her head. Without being able to remember anything from the night before, she struggles to get a grip on the reality of her situation as unusual conspiracy theories begin to arise. As her symptoms grow at a rapid pace, something otherworldly has infected her body, and try as she might, it refuses to be ignored. 

Meg Tilly and Mark Webber co-star.

ANTIBIRTH made its world premiere as part of the Midnight section at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film was produced by Cole Payne, Roger M. Mayer, David Anselmo, Justin Kelly and Natasha Lyonne.

IFC Midnight didn't reveal what their release plans are for the movie, but we will share that information as soon as they make it known.
