Don’t be a Dick!! Check out the New One-Sheet for the Upcoming ‘Thanatomorphose’
To reference an old Saturday Night Live skit (‘old’ meaning way back in the Eddie Murphy-era SNL … when it was actually funny): “Everybody doesn’t like something/But nobody doesn’t like … Vaginas” (okay; in the skit replace the word ‘orgasm’ for ‘vagina’, but the meaning is the same). But when you take one look at the new one-sheet for the upcoming indie horror flick, THANATOMORPHOSE, you’ll understand both my headline and the SNL reference. Some people might look at this one-sheet and see a hole in the wall. I see a husband hole. Some may look at it and see something mysterious inside the hole in the wall. I see a pink velvet sausage wallet. No matter what you might tell me the one-sheet is supposed to be, I see a vagina. Check out the press release:
THANATOFILMS, a subsidiary of Les productions Outofnowhere inc., and BLACK FLAG PICTURES proudly present the official poster for director Éric Falardeau’s independently produced dark tale of sex and gore, Thanatomorphose.
The poster was made by graphic artist Marc Boisclair, who has previously worked with director Éric Falardeau on Thanatomorphose’s marketing artwork.
Marc explains: For Thanatomorphose, Éric wanted to use a different approach than traditional film posters. In fact, the concept wouldn’t contain any shots taken from the movie nor any actor pictures. The real star would be that crack in the wall – similar to the one found in the film – representing the evolution of the physical and psychological distress of the main character. The image had to be highly-textured and inspired by the “body horror” period of the 80s. So I took care of highlighting the dreary aspect of the film while staying halfway between illustration and realism.
Thanatomorphose stars Kayden Rose, Davyd Tousignant, Émile Beaudry, Karine Picard, Roch-Denis Gagnon, Éryka L. Cantieri, Pat Lemaire and Simon Laperrière.
THANATOMORPHOSE is written and directed by Éric Falardeau and stars Kayden Rose, Davyd Tousignant, and Émile Beaudry. Be sure to check out the official website for THANATOMORPHOSE. And just for your information, “thanatomorphose” is a French word meaning the visible signs of an organism’s decomposition caused by death. The official plot synopsis of the film is short and sweet:
One day a young and beautiful girl wakes up and finds her flesh rotting …
Despite the moose knuckle one-sheet, THANATOMORPHOSE sounds pretty damn good with a high potential for some solid gore. Time will tell.
