I recently discovered this movie when I was on the hunt for a good'n weird body horror flick-- needless to say I was pleasantly suprised. It tells the story of a teenage boy who suddenly notices something off about his seemingly picture perfect family.

When he ignores warnings and starts an investigation into the plot, his life begins to spiral out of control.
