Contracted: Phase II

Sometimes icky sex is better than no sex at all. (Disclaimer: this ONLY applies to horror movies.)

In Contracted (2013), a modern horror story about a one-night-stand gone wrong, Samantha, a young gal, has sorta consensual sex with a guy who just had sex with a corpse (he works at a morgue). The next day, after waking up feeling not so fresh, Samantha soon discovers her body is slowly rotting from the inside out. Even if she ate soap sandwiches, it couldn’t stop the progressing ickiness. What to do? Have sex with someone and share the “love.”

Contracted: Phase II

And that’s right where the sequel, Contracted: Phase II (2015) picks up. This guy Riley sorta consensually has sex with Samantha, and doesn’t seem to mind the maggots coming out of her public privates. So now he’s got the love bug:

Phase II follows Riley, one of the last people to come in contact with Samantha, as he scrambles to track down those responsible for the outbreak before the highly contagious disease not only consumes his body, but the world as we know it.”

Contracted: Phase II comes out on September 25, 2015. You might want to have a bottle of bleach handy to wipe down the TV after you see it. Just in case.

The Horror of Sex

Posted in Misc. Horror, Nature Gone Wild with tags , , , , , , on October 25, 2013 by Drinkin' & Drive-in


It’s not often you see a horror movie about a sexually transmitted disease gone wild. And really, who would want to see something like that on the big screen, let alone their privates and face after they scratch themselves and then rub their eyes?


Contracted, a new horror flick flaring up on November 22, 2013 on IFC, deals with just such a topic. Here are the icky details: “A young girl who has a one-night stand with a stranger, contracting what she thinks is a sexually transmitted disease, but it is actually something far worse. As things begin to crumble around her, she’s sent on a disturbing and bloodcurdling journey, sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. With nail-biting suspense and frightening twists, Contracted is a horror film for those who think they’ve seen it all.”

I’m thinking I don’t want to see it all. Conditions like Rump Rot or Greasy Crease isn’t on my go-to list of horror genres to watch. How come they just can’t make a nice, happy movie about super painful rug burns or achy tennis elbow? Now there’s some fascinating themes to explore.
