2.0 out of 5 stars WRONG ASPECT RATIO !!! 22 Mar 2014
By Geezer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the film on this british dvd is shown in a murky 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The correct picture format is 2.35:1 as presented on the US-dvd under the original title "contracted". If interested avoid the UK-dvd and buy from amazon.com.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true horror film 9 Dec 2013
Format:DVD
Thanatomorphose is a truly disturbing, claustrophobic modern horror masterpiece. An exceptional performance from the lead, Kayden Rose, who plays a struggling artist, literally rotting. Skip if you're looking for fast moving glossy horror, this is a slow paced, intelligent, brooding trip. I've been following Éric Falardeau's cinematic journey from his early shorts to this twisted, slimy offering. He's most certainly a director to look out for in the future. Comes highly recommended from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent body horror flick 30 Oct 2013
Format:DVD
Let's face it, some people like to think they're horror fans but in reality if a film requires an ounce of intelligence or insight at all they get lost. Some of the reviews here are pitiful to say the least. Thanatomorphose features the slow, yes I said slow, bodily disintegration of a woman who's everyday routine becomes harder and harder as she tries to cope with her condition. The movie is meant to develop at a crawl as the viewer is there to experience her ride to the ultimate conclusion. Something which one person declared here but still didn't understand.

The film is not perfect, the few vocal parts are average to say the least, but what it sets out to do it does fantastically. It really miffs me off though when horror blow ins spout off as if knowledgeable about the genre when they're plainly not. I have my strong suspicions that these are the same fools who wouldn't watch a subtitled film because they maybe can't read, when ironically, the best horror films of recent times have not been in the English language.

If you're of average or above intelligence and understand that some horror films don't feature a man in a mask chasing stupid teens through a forest, then check Thanatomorphose out. One of the best body horror films in years. I would have given it 4stars but to counteract the totally uncalled for one star votes it's getting a five.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice make-up (shame about the story) 12 Dec 2013
Format:DVD
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull and confusing 9 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
I fell for the hype, the tag line was a Cronenburg style body horror with rancid flesh, it sounded interesting so I thought I'd give it a try. I shouldn't have bothered as it's pretty dull. The set up is ok, but the story is thin. A young struggling artist starts waking up with mysterious markings, she assumes that they are from her partners, but they continue and get gradually worse. She also kills a few people and plays with herself a lot.

The problem with the film is that it drags on, nothing much happens and there's no interesting revelations, just a grim monotony. It also teases at some madness behind the transformation\, but they don't really add anything and are confused scenes with no real coherence.

It does however do one thing well and that is the decay of her body, the effects are good and the whole film carries a sense of the disgusting, it's not enough to turn it into a good film, but it did prevent it from being rated as truly awful.
