September 1, 2016
It's unfortunate that the only part of the film that works does so by taking the wind out of the rest of it.

February 19, 2016
Despite being energetic even if it wears out its welcome and fascinating even as it frustrates, it never quite commits to a tone in true punk rock spirit.

September 1, 2016
Antibirth feels like a movie retrofitted to justify its climax.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 27, 2016
Antibirth feels more like an anti-film, a piss-poor assembly of remarkable cult actors and brazen narratives that start off divorced without ever being married. What a disappointing, irrelevant misfire.
Full Review | Original Score: D

[A] trauma that only people who have experienced it can truly comprehend.
August 31, 2016
Antibirth has so many moments that flash what Danny Perez is capable of, but none of them come together in the end.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 31, 2016
The further Antibirth drifts from [Sevigny's] crude magnetism and toward a Cronenberg-lite vision of Lou's rapid, worryingly transformative pregnancy, the less compelling it becomes.
September 8, 2016
The answers are far more appealing than the questions.

August 30, 2016
Often narratively cryptic and stylistically uneven.
December 2, 2016
With its garish colour palette and sugar-high energy level, Antibirth sometimes resembles a cinematic glass of Kool-Aid. But successful films, unlike powdered drink mixes, require more than just throwing a few ingredients together.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 6, 2016
It's impossible to ignore the rape allegory that Antibirth is spinning, and it's the smartest part of the body-horror film that sometimes slips narratively.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 2, 2016
Lovers of horror will likely be into this fertile homage and will appreciate Perez's new takes on horror's tried-and-true tropes and plot twists.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The strongest thing about this movie is that it takes the protagonist's body to the extreme. [Full review in Spanish]
May 13, 2016
A relentless hyperchromatic trip from altered state start to Cronenbergian and Lynchian finish, Antibirth might be a good film, it's just difficult to coherently justify exactly why. Cult superstardom awaits.

Watching Lyonne smoke and drink the trimesters away reminds one just how much her absence from the big screen has been missed. She's pretty much the whole show until the arrival of Meg Tilly whose performance...ranks as one of the year's finest.

July 16, 2016
Amazingly weird, astonishingly gross.
January 27, 2016
Perez' style is like a less-serious David Lynch, which is a nice comparison for a first-timer.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 2, 2016
It's very easy to be turned off by Perez's feature debut, but if you can get on its wavelength, you'll find yourself drawn in by one of the year's most original horror films.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 2, 2016
Like its wastoid heroine, "Antibirth" is a mess - but an interesting one.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 5, 2016
Dementedly creepy punk body-horror grossout comedy plays like a padded-out short. But Natasha Lyonne and ChloŽ Sevigny have a ball as cheerful wastrels.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
