I was pretty surprised that this film turned out to be an anti-racist movie! The story is simple enough that an African American, Chris, goes to his Caucasian girlfriend, Rose's parents' home, where everyone victimizes African Americans for their body transformation. The killers' motive is more religious cult than human trafficking. This topic is common in the latest Asian films which criticizing stealing parts of victims' bodies to sell to upper-class millionaires.


This film's technical features are pretty common. For instance, the most crafted VFX is when a hypnotized Chris draws into the liquefied floor in a flush back sequence. The surreal expression is well done in this sequence. I'm afraid of this filmmaker's courage to make a white versus black film in the present. However, it is not that kind of propaganda, it just belongs to black comedy. And it also embodies the ideological racial phobia of Caucasians after the Obama regime appeared in US history. It deeply expressed the Caucasian's racial fear of more empowered African Americans and their historical revenge. This film physiologically well expressed Caucasians' minds in US society in the post-Obama era.
