Childbirth. Aaaawwwwww. It’s one of the few things in life that is the same no matter where you are, no matter what social class you belong to. It’s perhaps the most basic of human processes.
It’s a beautiful thing. Really. Beautiful, yet equally revolting.
The sheer quantity of fluids and goo that come squirting out of the female body during this miraculous process is absolutely incredible. Blood, sweat, tears, amniotic fluid, to name but a few. It’s all there and it’s everywhere. Childbirth is enough to reduce even the most strong willed of observers to a pale faced, weak kneed, mess.
Of course, then it’s all very lovely as your offspring is catapulted, squealing and mewling into the world to face its life.
That’s the norm, anyway.
However, if your child was implanted by, let’s say, a demon with a taste for human flesh, then the experience could be somewhat different, right?
Well, writer/director Tara Robinson is set to explore that very theme with her indie flick, After Birth, and if the below trailer is anything to go by, then Ms. Robinson is most definitely not shirking her duties where gunk and mewling are concerned.
From the press release
If you think you know what to expect from a low budget horror movie, think again. The latest endeavor from writer/director Tara Robinson is testing the very limits of genre filmmaking as we know it in After Birth, a movie that promises to offend, disturb, and disgust even the avid horror fan with its antagonizing supernatural twist to social issues like homelessness, drug abuse, and abortion.
Breaking the unspoken male-dominated boundaries in filmmaking, Robinson tells the boys to step aside as she rolls up her sleeves and, with her team of “DangerBitches,” creates a story designed to show us that true terror is something women face every day, as evidenced by the newly released teaser trailer. After Birth is going to be a bloody, scary, monster-filled gore fest.
“It’s amazing to be a woman kicking ass in the horror genre,” Robinson said. “It’s definitely still a boys’ club, but the industry is changing and it’s exciting to be part of the revolution.”
