Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!

It really starts as nothing bad, Marla (Lisa van Dam-Bates) has an IUD implanted by Dr Lourdes (Jason Stange), who just happens to be a friend of the family, which is why he does it for virtually free - and to celebrate that, she and her boyfriend Jake (Travis Johnny Ware) have sex that night ... but during the act, Jake starts spitting blood, then he's pretty much torn apart by forces unknown. The police can't make heads or tails of this one, so they treat it like a murder case, but more because the cause of death is completely alien to them than that they have any concrete suspicions - and frankly, they're getting more on Marla's nerves than they are helping. And after they're asking Marla about an ex-girlfriend of Dr Lourdes that might have something to do with all of this, she starts to have a hunch that the IUD has something to do with Jake's death - but when she asks Dr Lourdes to take it out again, he just calms her with empty words. Then one night, a bum (Samuel Mikolon) tries to rape her - but is blown to pieces during the act. Of course, that worries Marla even more - and that's when her roommate Jules (Katie Hemming) proves to be a true friend and suggests a plan of action - but a plan that doesn't come without dangers of its own ...


At its core, Marla is a really cool piece of body horror, but not one that gives everything away from the get-go but one that builds things up by a clever build-up and atmospheric filmmaking, this way leaving the audience at the edge of their seats for the longest time to ever now and again strike with a vengeance - and these scenes are really as bloody as they are grotesque and will satisfy every gorehound. And of course a strong ensemble cast doesn't hurt one bit either.

Definitely worth a look.
