Worth Watching - April 8: Willem Dafoe's Anamorph Trailer
by Alex Billington
April 8, 2008
Like zombie movies, movies that involve serial murderers and investigations have their place in cinema, too. Anamorph is another one of those serial murder thrillers with a bit of a unique twist. Starring Willem Dafoe and Scott Speedman, Anamorph is a psychological thriller based on the concept of anamorphosis, a painting technique that manipulates the laws of perspective to create two competing images on a single canvas. Remarkbly, this doesn't look half bad, but it won't be playing in too many places. Take a look at the trailer and let us know what you think.
Watch the trailer for Anamorph:
Anamorph is directed by budding filmmaker Henry Miller of 2004's Late Watch. The film is co-written by Miller and Tom Phelan, of Pollinator. Anamorph is being released by IFC Films and arrives in limited theaters (in New York City only) starting on April 18th. The poster is featured below.

I think this could be very very good. It surely has potential and i think it could bring something new to the scene. Let's hope so... waiting for the dvd here in Portugal

This looks awesome. I do anamorph paintings, and the idea of churning it into a thriller is something that could only be done on film. It's about time Willem Defoe had another starring role, aside from Shadow of the Vampire, which was also fantastic.

This looks pretty good. I wish it were going to be playing around the area of Cleveland, TN.

Looks kind of cheesy but with the cast it could be good.
