Taxidermia sets a benchmark for body horror in the cinema.

Taxidermia is a brilliant, often grotesquely bizarre allegory on life in Hungary from World War II to the present, a surrealist fantasy exploring the limits of the body and its desires and altogether a darkly funny comedy.

And now a word of advice from your friendly film critic: If you go to see the Hungarian black comedy Taxidermia, don't plan to eat afterward.

Produces nightmarish horror and formal beauty in a surreal, Central European blend.

All this helps to shape Pálfi's crudely bombastic but impressive philosophical view of the body as landscape and art, a source of personal discovery, wonder, and annihilation.

Visually dazzling and outlandishly obscene.

'Taxidermia' undoubtedly has its own unsavoury humour and gratuitous shock value, but its extremities and enormities yield less than the sum of their dismembered parts.

Tthose who reveled in such cinematic synapses as the eyeball being slit in Un Chien Andalou will gravitate toward this outrageous, and frequently hilarious, piece de film.
