16-year-old Izzy has a rare illness that has kept her confined her whole life on a remote mountaintop with her mother. Questioning her own malaise, Izzy secretly befriends another teen nearby. But her newfound happiness is upended when she’s overcome by an insatiable hunger that’s connected to sinister ancestral forces. This witchy, offbeat sixth feature from the real-life Adams family (who write, direct, star, even compose the score as the experimental punk band H6LLB6ND6R) is an artful folk-horror spellbinder.
