As my blog reader(s) know(s), I haven’t watched many horror films and most of those I’ve seen have disappointed me. So I’ve chosen one that has made me feel scared in a… different way.
This film is about a young woman who helps her friend perform an abortion, back in the 1980s. What she goes through is difficult to describe, both because it’s very well depicted and because it’s horrible to think of. It was tough to watch …but when I read (and realized) though that the meal the woman has after the abortion is a symbolic representation of the foetus, it just… I couldn’t think of anything else for the rest of that day. Although somewhat heavy-paced, it’s a very powerful film. And horrible to watch. I personally couldn’t do that again.
