Okay, even thought it is following you I can still see it. It is not done with me either. Okay, like I told you, all you can do is pass it on to someone else.
What the fuck are you talking about?
She can do the same thing I did. It should be easier for her, she is a girl. Any guy would be with you. Just sleep with someone else and tell him to do the same thing. Maybe it will never come back.

This film takes a simple idea and translates it into an extended exercise of moody terror. There are no wasted gestures; everything accumulates towards a clear message that somehow people take to be a propaganda film about abstinence. Here's an idea: Growing up is scary, and adults (despite their best intentions) have no real idea of what is on a teenager's mind. In the world of the film, young people are forced to face inevitable transformations at the hands of forces they don't understand, plagued by desires they can't necessarily control. This film is about losing innocence and realizing that the world isn't fair.
There are some jump scares and graphic intensity, but the real heart of the film is in the dialogue and feelings of the characters. It's as if someone took a slasher flick and made the characters real people, with vulnerability and emotion instead of plastic surgery boobs and six pack abs.
