The Substance

The Substance

Have you ever dreamt of a better version of yourself?
You. Only better in every way.
You've got to try this new product. It's called The Substance.


It generates another you.
A new, younger, more beautiful, more perfect, you.
And there’s only one rule: You share time.
One week for you. One week for the new you.
Seven days each. A perfect balance.
Easy. Right?
If you respect the balance... what could possibly go wrong?

De pers over The Substance

    “A grisly fantasy-parable of misogyny and body-objectification.”

    - The Guardian

    "Shocking and resonant, disarmingly grotesque and weirdly fun, 'The Substance' is a feminist body-horror film that should be shown in movie theaters all over the land."

    - Variety

    “The year’s smartest, goriest horror breakout.”

    - Deadline

    "An epic, audacious, and insanely gross body horror masterpiece."

    - IndieWire

    "Fargeat further confirms her status as a bracingly feminist filmmaker."

    - Screen International

    "Fargeat flaunts an exciting hyperactive style."

    - The Hollywood Reporter

    "Bold, stark work that pushes itself to greater heights and increasingly ludicrous lows, ensuring you feel every punch in your gut."
