Thanatomorphose: TetroVideo to release Éric Falardeau’s cult film on Blu-ray
I remember seeing Thanatomorphose on a rack at the local Walmart, the DVD case pitching it as a zombie film. I had to laugh imagining the reaction of anyone who bought it expecting another Dawn of the Dead knockoff. Now TetroVideo is bringing it to Blu Ray in a limited edition. You can read the press release below.
TetroVideo has officially announced the release of Éric Falardeau’s Thanatomorphose (2012), for the first time on Blu-ray.
The Canadian body horror film is scheduled to be released worldwide in March 2021 with English language and French, Italian, German and Spanish subtitles. Produced and directed by Éric Falardeau in 2012, Thanatomorphose is his directorial debut and deals with the physical signs of a body’s decomposition, caused by death.
The movie is, in fact, structured in three acts representing the stages of the physical and psychological deterioration of a girl (Kayden Rose).
Synopsis: 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 putrefying body begins to fall off the bone.
The film stars Kayden Rose, Davyd Tousignant, Émile Beaudry, Karine Picard, Roch-Denis Gagnon, Éryka L. Cantieri, Pat Lemaire and Simon Laperrière.
The practical effects are by David Scherer (Horsehead, Blattaria, The Barn) and the artwork is by Shin Nagai.
