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

Suspense is something foreign to Anamorph.

Though this snuff flick takes its title from an asexual stage of reproduction in the life of a fungus, don't expect to find any fungi, I mean fun guys, in this lame excuse for graphic displays of vivisection.

A grimy, ugly film about death and the living dead in New York City, without the redeeming ambition of Seven or even the cultural commentary of Summer of Sam.

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

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

This serial killer movie is nothing but a copycat.

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

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.

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

A pale imitation of David Fincher's Seven.
April 18, 2008
On a scale of one to Se7en, Miller's doomed rip barely rates.

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.

Director/co-writer H.S. Miller just lays on the chilly blues and a wet-blanket mood of arty anguish, leaving cinematographer Fred Murphy and production designer Jackson De Govia to trump up trompe l'oeils of carefully posed carrion.
April 18, 2008
The unfortunate fact is that it's more than a little dull when it isn't preposterous.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

A movie about a premise that metamorphoses into twaddle.

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

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

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.
