    A bit too disjointed to really get to me but all the performers put their entire pussies into this, Adjani in particular. That milky miscarriage!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is such a fascinating inversion of the well-intentioned-but-actually heinous phenomenon that characterizes so many cinematic portrayals of trans people. Here, what was apparently intended as a cheap slasher cashing in on the shock value furnished by transmisogyny actually takes shape in a campily cathartic revenge flick about the trauma that young trans girls--and gender nonconforming girls in general--undergo at the hands of their peers and supposed caretakers. Also like, yes Angela kills people, but generically she's much more of a final girl than a villain, from her mousy brown hair to her virginal tomboyishness to her feral, triumphant, blood-soaked final frame.

    My affection for family melodramas by midcentury gay small town playwrights is frankly boundless!

    Unbelievably I just saw this for the first time last night and I was extremely edible-high and said “maybe it’s the quarantine talking but Divine is looking kinda thick” and my girlfriend said “the gossamer thread separating you from gay men is that you think camp is sexy” and in my inebriated state I thought that was the most profound observation I had ever heard. This is the most deranged and intimate I’ve gotten—and hopefully will get—on this platform, sincerest apologies. Anyway. Bonkers flick, great fun.
