"If there was ever a worst case scenario of unprotected sex, this would be it!"
In today's times, we can never be too careful with who we choose to go to bed with because you never know what could be lurking within. Most people know about common STDs such as gonorrhea, herpes and hell even AIDS, but this, this is something 100x worse!
"Contracted" is one of those wake up and smell the napalm movies you should see before "hooking up" at the next party. The film follows Samantha through a horrific sexual encounter that leaves her with... Shall we Unhinge?
"It leaves her with much more than a headache and a cold sore, that's for sure!"
Meet Samantha, she's just your average 20-something girl with nothing to do but get wasted with friends at a party. So far, this should sound like the average college student weekend, but it's not quite that simple. You see, Samantha(Townsend) is one of those cute-n-quiet girls that's into girls, but not really sure what she wants just yet.
So, one night she goes to a party hoping to see her ex-girlfriend, Nikki whose a bit more certain about her likes and dislikes, but it's a no go. Nikki doesn't show which leaves Samantha at the mercy of Alice's peer pressure to get "Wasted"! Most of us have been in Samantha's shoes before and you know how that goes, we get hammered, tore up from the floor up..wasted.
Well, like most intoxicated 20-somethings do, she hooks up with a cute guy named BJ that hands her a drink. Ladies, ladies..did we say ladies? Never take a sip from a drink that you didn't make yourself! You have no way of knowing what's in the cup and it could be more than just a good time.
Sorry about that folks, we just needed to get that out of our system because too many young ladies end up in trouble over little things that can be so easily avoided. Now, back to the review.
To get to it, Samantha wakes up the next day and notices a little discomfort, *down there*, but doesn't think to much of it. She brushes it off and chalks it up to a cold shower and maybe that time of the month. No big deal right? Wait, there's more..lol
As things move along she begins to notice a rash so to speak, but that's only the first of many symptoms that she will experience over a rapid 3 Day Period. What other symptoms does she go through? How about, excessive bleeding, bloodshot eyes, hair loss and you'll have to watch the movie to find out the rest;)
One of the craziest things about this film, is how dumbfounded the doctor is! A girl comes to your office looking like she had sex with a river monster and you tell her to "put some cream on it". What! "Get the freak outta here doc!" Let's just be glad that he's only a doctor in film because the country would be overrun with nasty virals, if he was the real deal.
So, if you haven't seen this film, give it a shot because it's got a good message within all the grotesque gooey goodness.
"When it comes to sex, always, always be safe and if you have any doubt...go without"
Besides, a warm bath and a hot book can do wonders for the imagination. #justsayin
