Released on DVD by Contender Home Entertainment on 13th April 2009, academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe (the Spider-Man trilogy; Platoon) heads an all-star cast in the intense psychological thriller, Anamorph, the second feature from writer-director Henry Miller (Late Watch).
Co-starring alongside Dafoe in this chilling serial killer shocker that recalls the visual panache and thematic inventiveness of Seven are Scott Speedman (Weirdsville; Underworld: Evolution), Peter Stormare (The Brothers Grimm; 2001 Maniacs) and Clea DuVall (Zodiac; The Grudge).
Willem Dafoe stars as Stan Aubrey, an alcoholic police detective still haunted by his involvement in the investigation of the so-called "Uncle Eddie" serial killings five years earlier - a case in which the murderer left his victims' posed as grotesque works of art. Since then, Aubrey has taken a back seat on the force working as a psychological profile instructor. But when a new series of murders appears to bear remarkable similarities to the Uncle Eddie slayings, Aubrey is brought on board to assist hotshot rookie detective Carl Uffner (Scott Speedman) with the investigation.
Are the new murders merely the work of a deranged copycat killer or has the original Uncle Eddie, presumed to have been killed by Aubrey during a police raid half a decade ago, decided to pick up where he left off with his depraved displays of death? As the killings mount up they begin to take on a very personal aspect for Aubrey, drawing him ever closer to the perpetrator. Suddenly, the investigation takes a dark turn that could see the detective being implicated in the crimes or, worse, becoming the ultimate victim. Full of chilling atmosphere and inspired visuals, Anamorph is an unpredictable and novel thriller featuring a gripping central performance by the ever-excellent Dafoe.
