I agreed with rdrgzdian and could see it as an zombie origin film also but that has been overdone too. I cannot recommend this film for anyone but definitely not for anyone 18 and under

This drama/thriller film is about a young woman who seemingly acquires an STI, or so she thought. After she is sexually assaulted at a party, she begins experiencing very strange symptoms such as bleeding, shedding skin and hair, and having vivid hallucinations. As her condition quickly deteriorates, it becomes apparent that she’s becoming the living dead. The movie wasn’t wonderful by any means, but I actually really enjoyed how it wasn’t dialogue heavy and I liked how it was shot in such a way that it seemed like you were just watching her live her life. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Another movie where the " subject" has been dealt with before in many movies, BUT perhaps not in this way. Slowly changing, subtle characteristics to watch change as they physically change. A definite feeling of " creepy " as it is a more personal oriented film rather than a " mob madness" approach.
I found this approach to be rather captivating, others may not.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and the payoff.
