So intense was Swallow's film debut at the Tribeca Film Festival one audience member fainted. In this superb psychological feminist horror film actress Halley Bennett gives a terrific performance as a newly married woman with a hidden secret. Soon after discovering she is pregnant she develops a compulsion to consume objects. Though it starts to take over her life she soon realizes she must confront the mystery of her past. Winner of several awards, Bennett captured the Best Actress Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival and Brooklyn Horror Film Festival.
