Storyline

The time is the early 21st century and a genetics lab has been destroyed in a fire seriously injuring a scientist and possibly killing his daughter. As two investigators begin to unravel the story of the lab and its experiments, they discover that the scientist may have started the fire himself with the intention of killing his own daughter. The journals of the scientist and of the lab's founder, Dr. Patricia Morella, tell the tale of genetics experiments going badly awry and of the deceit that was used to hide them even from some of those that were involved. Dr. Morella's legacy is a clone whose only goal in life is its own survival and reproduction...no matter what the cost! Written by CD

good music, nice scenery, chars could be better
8 November 2002 | by (Aachen, Germany) – See all my reviews

Morella is definitely not one of the big movies but never the less it is worth watching. Though the characterplay lacks some depth Morella captivates with the mood, scenery, the pictures however you might call it. The style reminds me a litle bit of the games "Silent Hill" or "Another Day in the Dark". Although the film plays in the early 21st century, it looks more like 1920-30 with a litle bit of 1990 laboratories-in-sf-films design and a few gimmicks, which come from the 21st century - a really nice and intriguing mix! The story is interesting and spooky though I don't know the original by E.A.Poe so that I can not say wether the film lives up to the story... Morella is definitely not a film for everyone. Lots will not like it and say it is boring because M is no popcorn-film and not for the great audience. But I enjoyed it...
