This is why you listen to your parents when they tell you not to move in together. The weird acting (especially Bettis's insane accent) really worked for me and the relationship at its core was sweet enough that I didn't want anyone to turn into giant bugs. But they did. Gimmie some skin.
I thought this was a lot of fun. Lesbian melodrama, Reynold Brown inspired "insectoid" monsters and a soundtrack compilation of Francophone indie-rock. A nice blend of ironic B-movie nonsense and "quirky" contemporary romance.
