WHERE TO WATCH


A low-budget film made during a global pandemic, The Seed (2021) was the first feature for writer/director Sam Walker. It revolves around a trio of women on vacation who are suddenly visited by an unexpected alien. While the film looks quite stunning, it may not be for everyone despite its attempts at low-key social media commentary. It does feature some admirable non-digital creature effects, a nice helping of body horror along with an interesting, if well-trod premise, the film ultimately produces little in the way of incisive analysis of society and the plot is fairly predictable throughout. It is an enjoyable enough watch that given a greater budget, indicates good things may be forthcoming from Walker in her future filmography.
