      An ironic post-feminist slasher movie about the metamorphosis that pregnancy causes on women. A reflection on gender politics through an anarchic reinterpretation of the conventional thriller.

      Sight & Sound review:
      "In its charged feeling for landscape, Ryan Eddleston's expressive widescreen photography of the rugged Brecon terrain recalls Laurie Rose's work in Ben Wheatley's Sightseers (2012)."

      Variety review:
      "Ryan Eddleston’s widescreen camerawork embraces the sodden, soaring landscape in saturated tones of russet and moss, closing in as carefully on fence barbs and foliage as on the actors’ wonderfully expressive faces."
