Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Jill a selfish and deeply flawed but ultimately guilty character (as implied by her [[spoiler: returning to apologize to Casey after trying to seduce Jared]]), or is she [[spoiler: an unrepentant sociopath who set her friend up to get sexually assaulted]]?


* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Pretty much the entire cast somehow manage to remain professional about the whole thing despite the hokey script and silly dialogue, with varying degrees of success. In particular, Elma Begovic makes a genuine effort to portray Casey as a TragicMonster rather than a simple archetype while Annette Wozniak makes a similarly genuine effort to portray Jill as someone earnestly trying to help her friend deal with her situation despite their past differences as she watches her disintegrate, which makes the later revelation that [[spoiler:she set her up]] all the more shocking.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The general consensus is that while the film does have some promising ideas, most notably the whole "BodyHorror as an allegory for the trauma of sexual assault" angle, it doesn't quite live up to its full potential. In particular, many felt that the relationship drama seemed rather tacked-on and distracting from the main plot of Casey's transformation.
