A haunted New York City detective must delve into his dark past in order to stop a serial killer whose highly artistic modus operandi seems uncannily similar to that of a madman who stalked the city streets five years prior. When reclusive detective Stan Aubray (Willem Dafoe) gunned down the man suspected of being the "Uncle Eddie" murderer, he thought his nightmare had come to an end. But now a new crop of victims has begun to turn up, each bearing the distinctive mark of the maniac whom everyone had presumed to be dead. Much like the unfortunate victims of "Uncle Eddie,"… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Creepy, turgid and cerebral mind-game serial killer flick."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Anamorph dances around ponderous issues and grotesque scenery but fails to really engage, startle or disturb."
‑ Graham Killeen, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"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."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"A serial-killer flick told like an art lecture, Anamorph manages to be gruesome yet dull."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"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."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"No more interesting than any standard episode of "CSI" or any of the other myriad of cop-centric whodunits polluting our airwaves."
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
"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."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"A movie about a premise that metamorphoses into twaddle."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"The long shadow of David Fincher's Seven falls on Anamorph, a moody, ultimately unexciting thriller."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"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."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"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."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Sure, it's better than 88 Minutes [what isn't?] but it's still pretty pointless, with unclear exposition and murky plot developments."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"On a scale of one to Se7en, Miller's doomed rip barely rates."
‑ Kurt Loder, MTV
