Directed and written by: Eric Englund
Unfortunately there are a lot of people that can relate to part of this story. You go to a party, have too much fun, and end up sleeping with a stranger. Some people get lucky, and walk away like nothing happened, while others aren't so lucky. That is what happens to Samantha (Najarra Townsend) in "Contracted," but the movie takes it to the extreme.
She ends getting a symptom here, and there until it gets out of hand. The good thing the movie does is keeping the audience wondering what will come of her disease. For those that like to be grossed out, eventually there might be a moment or two for you. I'm going to try not to ruin it, but only say a poor guy gets "lucky," and "unlucky" at the same time!
While being grossed out is fun, there are a few problems. There is just something off about what becomes of Samantha, and takes away from what otherwise seems like a real life situation. Yes, they probably wanted to make it as disgusting as possible, but I'm not even sure they know what they turned her into. Then there is the continuing mention of the mysterious guy she slept with, but they never finish off his story. Leaving that a mystery might work for some, but not me. Finally the acting of some of the supporting cast isn't that great. In the end, "Contracted" is a strange story about a strange girl with some nasty moments that I give 2 pools of blood!
