Luca Guadagnino’s cannibal love story, 'Bones and All', hits our cinemas this week starring Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet.
A love tale between two disenfranchised youths, who happen to share a cannibalistic compulsion, ‘Bones and All’ is the romantic horror that’s left everyone fiending for flesh. Based on the 2015 novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis, the film’s truly haunting plot sees Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet lust over their shared carnivorous impulses.
Released this week, the movie’s received rave reviews since it debuted at the Venice film festival earlier this year. Luca Guadagnino’s emo horror uses 80s aesthetics to tell the coming-of-age story, presenting an intimacy that otherwise wouldn’t be shined on such a twisted relationship. The carnivore romance casts a dark shadow over their involvement in the mainstream world, but together, they manage to forge a life that involves their addictive compulsion.
If your stomach can handle such a blood-curdling tale of horror and heartbreak, then you can catch it now at your local cinema.
