Storyline

Inexplicably, a lively young woman is slowly dying. What started as a rash and a grotesque dark bruise, it keeps spreading, and, even though she still holds on, a terrible scourge is eating her alive from the inside. Now, her job at the hospital, her friends, and her love life have all become fractions of a once-regular life, as, sooner or later, her body will blemish from the blooming flowers of decay, and the stigmata of an unfathomable punishment that demands a transcendental change. Little by little--as the festering wounds claim the remaining flesh--the woman finds herself reduced to a mere fragment of her former self, with a few grim Polaroids being the only remnants of her existence. Inevitably, before Death's omnipotence, any resistance is futile, as the feeble and malleable flesh succumbs to life's ultimate truth: what was once alive, undoubtedly, shall perish.

Rotting misery.
1 December 2014 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Thanatomorphose in French means the visible signs of an organism's decomposition caused by death.The main character of Canadian art-house gore flick "Thanatomorphose" starts to literally decompose after having sex with her vulgar and abusive boyfriend.The film takes place in the claustrophobic apartment of a young woman in the vein of Roman Polanski's "Repulsion".There is plenty of graphic gore,bile and filth on display-especially in the second half of the movie.Adittedly the make-up and special effects are excellent and truly stomach-churning.Still there is almost no plot and there are some dull spots during the first half of "Thanatomorphose".The film can be seen as the metaphor of empty and useless existence of the main character,though.7 decomposing bodies out of 10.I am fairly sure that "Nekromantik","Aftermath" and "Guinea Pig V:Mermaid and the Manhole" were huge influence here.
