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.

User Reviews: Considering the level of quality from recent modern Canadian horror films, i came into Thanatomorphose with huge expectations. Unfortunately those expectations were never met.

The gore effects and atmosphere are filled with dread. This really does feel like a horror film and I actually thought the low budget the film had played to its advantage. Its the type of film that will not only test your stomach, but will make you feel like a shower afterwards. Its almost as though the filth that is depicted on screen is reaching through and soaking you, the viewer, in it.

The gore effects are surprisingly very good which will make gore hounds want to go and see it but, the problem is, is that its over one hundred minutes in length and because the story is non existent and you don’t care about the plight the main character is in, it becomes a genuinely tedious experience.

Its definitely a case of a movie that should have been made into a short film.

Very disappointed, but doesn’t come without positives. Unfortunately those positives don’t outshine the many negatives.
