Storyline

Inexplicably, a young woman's life is fading away. Whatever it was that started as a rash and a bruise, it keeps spreading and even though she still holds on, from the inside, a terrible scourge is eating her alive. Her job at the hospital, the friends and her love life are all fractions of a once regular life which is now slowly slipping away and 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. Eventually, as the festering wounds claim the remaining flesh, the woman will be reduced to a mere fragment of her former self, with a few grim Polaroids being the only remnants of her existence. Without a doubt, any resistance is futile and the malleable meat will be sculpted because inevitably, before Death's omnipotence, the feeble flesh will succumb to life's ultimate truth: what was once alive, undoubtedly shall perish.

Nice make-up (shame about the story)
19 August 2014 | by bowmanblueSee all my reviews

The marketing would have you believe that 'Thanatomorphose' somehow resembled a David Cronenberg movie, based on how it's a 'horror' film about the human body (and the disgusting ways it can be mutilated). However, that is where the similarity ends. Cronenberg's films also had a story and engaging characters. This has neither.

The two main characters spend so much time wandering round their apartment naked, you may be forgiven for thinking they're nudists. In fact... it gets a bit annoying in the end as there's clearly no reason for it all the time (like cleaning the flat in the nude etc). The story is about a woman whose body starts to slowly decay. Here's where the good make-up comes in, as it is pretty disgusting (about the film's only plus point). You may feel some sympathy for her if she was a bit more sensible. I imagine that if such a horrifying affliction descended on any one of us, the first thing we'd do is seek medical attention. She doesn't. Even when a friend comes calling and sees she's clearly unwell, she refuses to go to the hospital with him. Therefore we start to lose sympathy for her plight if she's clearly that stupid. Her boyfriend is not so daft - merely horrible. He's violent and a user - hardly hero material.

If you're looking for various gross scenes, you'll find them here. However, if you want talking, decent characters and a story, move along...
