Monster Pictures acquire body-horror ‘Thanatomorphose’

by Phil Wheat


Following its World Premiere at Fantasia Fest, genre distributor Monster Pictures have announced their acquisition of gruesome body horror movie Thanatomorphose, which stars stars Kayden Rose, Davyd Tousignant and Émile Beaudry (the title means the physical signs of a body’s decomposition, caused by death). The official synopsis reads:

A Cronenbergian smorgasbord of rancid flesh and sexual gratification, Thanatomorphose, by Canadian director Eric Falardeau,picks up where Nekromantic left off. Discovering several bruises on her body after a night of rough sex, a young woman is shocked as, rather than heal itself, her body begins rotting from the inside out. She faces a terrifying and gory descent into a living death, as her putrifying body begins to literally ‘fall off the bone’. A strange and claustrophobic tale of sexuality, horror and bodily fluids, Thanatomorphose will not only make you wince, but is strangely uplifting in its take on mortality.

Monster Pictures will be releasing Thanatomorphose – which won the Best Movie award in 2012 at the XXXI Festival de Cine de Terror de Molins de Rei in Spain and Best Special Effects at the A Night of Horror International Film Festival in Australia – in November in the UK and early 2014 in Australia/NZ.
