A Cronenbergian smorgasbord of rancid flesh and sexual gratification,
THANATOMORPHOSE, by Canadian director Eric Falardeau,picks up where
Nekromantic left off. Discovering several bruises on her body after a night
of rough sex, a young woman is shocked as, rather than heal itself, her body
begins rotting from the inside out.
She faces a terrifying and gory descent into a living death, as her
putrifying body begins to literally 'fall off the bone'.
A strange and claustrophobic tale of sexuality, horror and bodily fluids,
THANATAMORPHOSE will not only make you wince, but is strangely uplifting in
its take on mortality.
Monster Pictures - the genre distributor of edgy and cult titles including
the Human Centipede movies, American Mary, ABCs of Death, and Maniac - will
be releasing THANATOMORPHOSE in November in the UK and early 2014 in
Australia/NZ. The title means the physical signs of a body's decomposition,
caused by death.
Thanatomorphose won the BEST MOVIE award in 2012 at the XXXI Festival de
Cine de Terror de Molins de Rei in Spain and BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS at the A
Night of Horror International Film Festival in Australia. It stars Kayden
Rose, Davyd Tousignant and Émile Beaudry.
