Time Out says

A vitamin drink delivered free to residents of idyllic housing development Pebbles Court provokes a series of ghastly body mutations. Two investigating cops trace the trouble to the futuristic 'health farm' of Dr Carrera (Smith) where guests are being used for crazed experiments. Despite its emetic preoccupations - exploding stomachs, elongating tongues, etc - this mordant debut feature is in fact less a splatterfest than a consumerist satire. It's overlaid with black humour and takes swipes at health fads, body building, soap operas and the false utopia of suburban living.
