Naked Lunch

Movie • 1991  

Report
Blank-faced bug killer Bill Lee and his dead-eyed wife, Joan, like to get high on Bill's pest poisons while lounging with Beat poet pals. After meeting the devilish Dr. Benway, Bill gets a drug made from a centipede. Upon indulging, he accidentally kills Joan, takes orders from his typewriter-turned-cockroach, ends up in a constantly mutating Mediterranean city and learns that his hip friends have published his work -- which he doesn't remember writing.
This movie contains 22 potentially triggering events.

Of a sort. There is a fantastical sequence where our main character encounters a friend having sex with a man-centipede-creature in a way that is physically mutilating the friend. Consent in this scene is very blurry
