A brother and sister along with their two friends are a team of fake paranormal investigators. They scam people for the quick money using some clever tricks, but when they answer the call to go investigate Mrs. Green’s grand house/boarding school, it’s clear something more is happening. Is it the weird mental health issues that Angela (the sister played by Florence Pugh) has inherited from her mom? Cause that lady also started seeing things and hearing stuff! Or is it really ghosts? Either way, three ghost girls are trying to tell her something! Horror ensues!
The movie starts with some aliens dropping some babies (?) off on earth and leaving in the 50’s. The babies, which are slugs, cause a bit of a stir, but are quickly contained and forgotten until the 80’s. Flashing forward to the 80’s we find college kids that are getting ready for their first formal. Our protagonists are two socially awkward dudes trying to get with popular college chicks. We watch as they fumble through interactions and then fumble through trying to get rid of the slugs they accidently released. The slugs have one mission: to get in yo braaaaiiiiinnnnnns! They fly into mouths and then take over the bloodied bodies of the unfortunate.

In southern Mexico, there’s a device that was created in the 1500’s that can prolong its owner’s life, at a high (and gross) cost. It goes missing in the 1900’s and ends up in an antique shop owned by Jesus Gris. Jesus begins to investigate this ornate little thing while a very wealthy -and sick- man is going to great lengths to find it. Gris begins to ‘use’ the object because it dials back the biological clock for him, but eventually he really wants to eat all the blood and starts getting super gross and weird about it. Things go south!
