Questions about the plot


Who got killed by who? And why? Also why did The one twin decide to take pills and be like the other?

reply

Elliot volunteers to be killed, in a crazy attempt (by this stage)to separate the Siamese twins type connection that never has allowed them to live independent lives. Beverly disembowels Elliot. Initially Beverly is the drug dependent twin, but Elliot finds himself compelled to take up his brother's habit after their medical careers have been totally compromised.🐭

Doesn't Elliot also start taking drugs in his attempt to prevent his brother from taking drugs? "You'll take uppers so I don't take downers?"

Seize the moment, 'cause tomorrow you might be dead.
