An underheated mad-scientist tale cares more about emotional baggage than thrills.
As smart as it is suspenseful and as contemplative as it is creepily effective, the feature swarms with the potential of its competent helmer and commanding lead actor, even as it drifts towards an intriguing conclusion.
The film itself is quiet, as is Eklund's performance, but the research they are conducting, and the beautiful space of the lab, always give you something to keep your mind occupied.
Benefits from a riveting lead performance by the piercing-eyed Michael Eklund, who brings a brooding, destructive impulsiveness to his geneticist Geoff Burton.
More brooding thinkpiece than sci-fi thriller, and yet fans of brooding thinkpieces may not be wholly satisfied, either.
A tight, twisty little sci-fi thriller, directed with skilful economy by Eron Sheean.
A brooding drama set in a medical research facility, Errors of the Human Body combines some elements of sci-fi and horror, albeit in passing
Errors Of The Human Body surely lives up to its title, riddling this cinematic body with errors as well.
crossbreeds the speculative trajectory of genetic research with the eternal complexities of interpersonal relations to create a coolly sombre tragedy with a hint of Cronenberg.
A chilly, compelling, and quietly engrossing little sci-fi/horror thriller from Germany.
This is a good movie. There's some part of this movie that reminds me of Cronenberg's The Fly with Michael Eklund's descent into madness as he's infected with the virus that claimed the life of his son and his obsession to find a cure for it. The movie is incredibly smart and it's obvious that a lot of work went into making the more scientific stuff seem credible and believable. If there's a problem is that the movie does take a while before it really starts to get going. I think the movie does make a concerted effort to add a little tension to the events with its score and editing. I thought those parts were cool, but it is a movie that will definitely test your patience for a while. But I think Michael Eklund's unhinged performance helps make this movie more than watchable. And the movie also brings up some interesting questions about the ethics of some of these studies and whether the ends justify the means. There's also themes of obsession, with Geoff obsessing over finding a cure to Burton's syndrome. And then there's the ending and the twist and its implications. I'm not sure whether I thought it was a good twist or a bad one. Certainly its implications are actually really dark, but at the same time it does feel kind of cheap. Because it's like 'Oh hey, you know that thing we spent so much time working on? Turns out it's a non-issue and it has always been since the beginning of time'. That felt really cheap to me, though it adds a darker layer to Geoff's character, but it sort of makes everything that happened in the movie irrelevant and pointless. I still thought this was a good movie with some interesting ideas and a great performance from Michael Eklund, it has its issues, but this is still a solid movie.
