Part of VTIFF After Dark Spotlight

Director Lucile Hadžihalilović (Innocence, co-writer of Enter The Void) delivers a body horror film that slowly and methodically gets under your skin. Ten-year-old Nicolas (Max Brebant) lives on a remote volcanic island, inhabited solely by women and young boys. In a hospital overlooking the ocean, all the boys are subjected to a strange medical treatment. As Nicolas questions what is happening around him, he discovers an inexplicable nightmare. Evolution is a stunning visual experience that brings to mind David Cronenberg and H.P. Lovecraft.  ~EF
