Plot (Spoilers):
A woman crawls out of a bodybag and finds herself in an enclosure littered with body parts, filth and viscous fluids. As she explores her surroundings looking for purpose, she discovers she’s in a sort of crawlspace that leads to bizarre locations. More and more women turn up, each one representing and exploring a certain portion of a journey to freedom(?)

Flowers is a surreal experience without testing your patience. The grime, filth and gore in their sepiaish tone are tasteful and almost attractive, and some shots such as the smoking mouth in the toilet are brilliant. Also, unlike some surreal flicks, most of the confusion is cleared up by the end quite satisfactorily.

    Thanks as always for the awesome n unique selection of movies, admins!

    I found this film to be very unique and excellent in its own right. Great plot and also how the film played out thru each of the characters stories separately while all being wrapped together in the end, albeit predictably in terms of their outcome. Very surreal vibes

    Gotta say too, this film had EXCELLENT special effects, shockingly so for being a low-budget film. I’d give it an 8/10.

    Watched this back to back w the directors second film in the series, titled ‘LUNG’ which was great too, and silent like this one. If u like silent films, check out Begotten. And if u don’t mind the era n want to kick it back 120 years, lol, films like A Trip To The Moon (1902), and The House of the Devil (1896, also the first horror AND first vampire film), by the great Georges Méliès are pinnacles of the silent film genre itself. Since they taught us about him in film school, his work, as well as modern silent films, still obv hold merit. Do not dismiss silent films for being just that, ever

    Never made a comment on this site until now, but I was so frustrated with this movie that I felt like it was worth a comment.
    This was so boring, don’t waste your time on it. Special effects were good and cool, I love it when movies don’t use cgi for their gore. The gore was good. HOWEVER everything was drawn out sooo slowly, I constantly found myself thinking “Okay, I get it. Next scene please.” The gore, like I said, was good, but sadly ruined by being so repetitive and being stretched out so long that it loses its shock value and becomes boring.
    Little to no plot. Ending was unsurprising and completely unsatisfying. Kind of angry that I sat through this whole movie.
