In a Nutshell. Mini reviews of movies old and new. No fuss. No spoilers. And often no sleep.

Writer/director Eric England goes for the complete ick factor with the grisly body-horror flick Contracted.  A film about a girl who has unprotected sex during a one-night stand and slowly begins deteriorating from a rapidly advancing uber-STD that will leave the shocked viewer with extreme unease and repulsion.
With nary a sympathetic character in sight, Contracted is hard to like when it hardly even explores any psychological depth to it's terror and when it does it's highly unbelievable and predictable.
There's some hints of outrageous shock-horror that will have you laughing in disgust but that's about all this film has to offer when it promises something more but has little pay-off.
