Metamorphosis is an entertaining film about a daring young scientist who creates a drug that makes people live forever. He decides to test it on himself, and in the process he becomes a killer (and slowly becomes.. uh.. something else).
This is a pretty decent watch with good acting and an intriguing plot. There are even a couple of gruesome scenes and decent effects. Most people who review this film seem to suggest that this was a shoddy slapped-together low-budget effort, but there seems to actually have been a lot of heart and thought put into some aspects of this movie. Too bad it kind of peters out in the (unintentionally hilarious) last five minutes.
You could do a lot worse than watching this film.
