As a short film about the horrors of gluttony, this is exemplary and pretty damn funny (believe me, being a glutton myself, I could definitely relate!).

Bec, a bit of a sad pathetic wench, goes out one night with a gal-pal of hers, Tiffany, and the pair get matching tattoos on their bellies as a kind of birthday present for Bec (talk about the gift that keeps on giving) – despite the fact that the tattoo parlour is frequented by a bizarr-o goth chick who gives them the creeps; listen to those instincts, people! Life for Bec takes a sharp turn into the weird, when her guts start taking on a life of their own – reminding me of that story Burroughs tells in The Naked Lunch about the guy who can speak with his arsehole.

Bec becomes consumed by eating (no pun intended – although, I gotta say, if I was eating celery or an apple and I saw someone eating a great big milk-bar burger, I'd be staring at them in a creepy positively lustful way, too and wanting their food) and basically, her navel becomes a remorseless eating machine – yeah, I know how that reads – and woe betide her arsehole Spanish boyfriend Fernando when he turns up, given her navel's newfound lust for food.

A short bit of fun, given its run-time, and a difficult one to write about in any depth without spoiling it completely for y'all. So, you'll just have to take my word for it, I'm afraid. There are some admirably gooey special effects – and remember to keep watching after the credits roll for the last pay-off.

It's definitely worth your attention, for a bit of a laugh and some good gore, and if you dug Demons Among Us, this gives you a bit more of an idea of what the evil geniuses behind that film can do. Roll on their next film, please! They've certainly got my attention.
