Creepy, turgid and cerebral mind-game serial killer flick.

No more interesting than any standard episode of "CSI" or any of the other myriad of cop-centric whodunits polluting our airwaves.

O roteiro carregado de clichés desperdiça o que até poderia ser uma premissa interessante, ao passo que os esforços estilísticos de Miller soam patéticos, como uma imitação barata dos trabalhos de David Fincher.
| Original Score: 1/5

Anamorph dances around ponderous issues and grotesque scenery but fails to really engage, startle or disturb.

A visual treat for Dafoe fans that goes well beyond the conventional horror genre into questions of reality and fantasy and how, or if, we tell the difference.

Director H.S. Miller thinks he's made something broodingly visionary when you're more likely to be aesthetically shaken up by one of Mad magazine's Fold-Ins.

Sure, it's better than 88 Minutes [what isn't?] but it's still pretty pointless, with unclear exposition and murky plot developments.

Weirdly positioning serial killing as a depraved form of creative expression and the victims as signature works of art, Anamorph has the odd effect of simultaneous repulsion and fascination.

A movie about a premise that metamorphoses into twaddle.

On a scale of one to Se7en, Miller's doomed rip barely rates.

This serial killer movie is nothing but a copycat.

The unfortunate fact is that it's more than a little dull when it isn't preposterous.

A serial-killer flick told like an art lecture, Anamorph manages to be gruesome yet dull.

The long shadow of David Fincher's Seven falls on Anamorph, a moody, ultimately unexciting thriller.

An academic thriller likely to engage only avid collectors of serial-killer flicks.

The atmosphere created by director H.S. Miller is gothic, tortured, stylized yet tinged with a classicist's sense of composition, symmetry and, yes, perspective.

Wears its influences...a little too heavily on its sleeve. But it does effectively convey a lingering sense of dread that can't be easily dismissed.

The serial killer in Anamorph shows promise, even if some of his best moves are derivative. The same is true of the film's director.

Beyond its cool, reflective surfaces and infinite plays with perspective lies nothing -- character, relationships, motives all seemingly irrelevant.

A pale imitation of David Fincher's Seven.
