★★★★½ review by Jake James Kath on Letterboxd
Where as "It Follows" failed at navigating the shitty cautionary tale trope into new territory, this on the other hand twists the ole STD allegory into something more experiential and weird. Resembling something more along the lines of Todd Haynes's "Safe", where unexplained body horror occurs and there's no real way out.
Ultimately something I was way more engrossed by than most modern horror (and probably, most modern comedy too).

Hit that like button if you think being haunted is......kinda hot

aka STD: Spectrally Transmitted Disease
Harrison Atkins is one of the most talented young filmmakers working today. While this is his first feature, he has made a startling amount of brilliant short films from our shared time at Northwestern University to the present. In particular, his student short film WITHIN AND WITHOUT comes to mind as when I was first aware of the silly and yet sensitive approach that defines his filmmaking. In the case of the short, it is a dreamy, heartwarming tale of wanton masturbation. LACE CRATER is no different: a hauntingly memorable movie about a first - and last - time. Cautionary tales are rarely as lovely as this one.
★★★★ review by Max Spaceman on Letterboxd
Well done supernatural indie thriller in which a woman gets a weird std via hooking up with... a ghost! Check it out.
★★★½ review by Alchymoto on Letterboxd
Eerie, psychological and socially awkward. Very intriguing.
