Details

This listing is for the standard edition Blu-ray. The limited edition hardbox slipcase (designed by Beth Morris) was limited to 3,000 units and is sold out. The two versions are identical, aside from the slipcase.

Signe and Thomas are young lovers in an increasingly competitive, and dangerous, relationship. As Thomas's success as a contemporary artist grows, building sculptures from stolen goods, Signe concocts a plan to get all eyes in Oslo on her instead, only it involves grotesquely altering her appearance and body chemistry in the process.

A biting social satire that aims its targets on narcissism in the age of social media and skewers the cultural elite, Norwegian filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli's SICK OF MYSELF is a sharp, brutally honest, oftentimes disgusting amalgam of gallows humor and body horror that has to be seen to be believed. Featuring a fearless performance by Kristine Kujath Thorp (Ninjababy) as Signe, much of which she spends under copious amounts of meticulously crafted practical make-up effects, SICK OF MYSELF was called "Pretty fucked up!" by none other than John Waters and premiered in the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Vinegar Syndrome Pictures is elated to bring Borgli's singular, renegade, horror comedy to Blu-ray loaded with cast and crew interviews and Borgli's similarly grotesque short film EER!
