Norman Glass is celebrating his first wedding anniversary. He married Ady Sutton a year ago and they are very much in love. So is Norman's friend Dennis who is married to the very attractive Barbara. Suddenly however, Norman believes that something is wrong with Ady. When he kisses her she tastes rancid; then she smells foul; another time he loses his sense of touch, but only in relation to his wife. His friend Dennis seemingly goes mad leaving Barbara convinced she is not human. Slowly, Norman similarly begins to believe Ady is not what she appears to be. Written by garykmcd

Atrophy Wives
31 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This offering begins with a fiery auto crash where, as the car bursts into flames, a young woman walks out of the inferno, leaving the driver behind and moving down the road. Soon we meet an accountant (probably chosen because, of course, accountants are neither attractive or interesting) played by Matt Frewer, who I remember from some made- for-TV Sherlock Holmes episodes. He is a gangly bald man, filled with consistency and kindness. He has hit the motherlode. He marries the widow of the man from the car crash. She is knock down gorgeous. Not only that, his best friend, the ever weird Clint Howard, has had the good fortune to meet an equally beautiful young woman. They were married in a joint ceremony on the same day. Things start to get weird when the accountant kisses his wife and gags as if he has ingested some awful acrid substance. Soon their relationship begins to fall apart because he can't touch her without a sense of disgust. Of course, the opening scene now takes on some gravity. Additionally, the Howard character has run off in terror of his wife, frightened to death, and runs in front of a moving vehicle. This is a pretty interesting tale.
