The picture, which reunites Chalamet with his "Call Me By Your Name" director Luca Guadagnino, plays up to its title with violent attacks and limb-chewing and eating scenes.

The journey is defined by self-discovery and murder (in a tone reminiscent of Guadagnino directing one of the "Twilight" films).

Lee seduces a man in one scene set at a carnival, implying that he's bisexual (or even pansexual), but he finally falls in love with Maren.

"Bones and All" is based on Camille DeAngelis' novel of the same name. The script was adapted by David Kajganich, who wrote "Suspiria" for Guadagnino.
