Errors of the Human Body

The evolution of the body horror sub-genre is as fertile as the goose-bump-inducing infections they profile. The roots of the sub-genre began in the early cinema of David Cronenberg with films such as Videodrome and Dead Ringers, even making it over to Melbourne with the 80s slime epic Body Melt. Errors of the Human Body delivers a divisive new slice for the sticky cannon.

Seeking a new laboratory to purse his own controversial genetic research , Dr. Geoff Burton (Michael Eklund) takes up a position at the world-renowned Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in wintry Dresden, Germany. He begins work in the institutes top-secret project – a human regeneration gene – one that has the potential to make something miraculous out of a personal tragedy, one that has haunting him for years. When he uncovers a conspiracy amongst his colleagues  a terrifying new virus is unleashed, with potentially devastating consequences for humanity – and Geoff!

The film, which is an Australian co-production, was shot primarily on location at the real establishment, the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden. There is an austerity to the production of the film, a cold metallic sheen that puts viewers at an uncomfortable distance. The haptic imagery is visceral and aims to crawl under the skin further exposing audience members to this virulent new strain of body horror.

Errors of the Human Body is now in limited release.
