The world needs more body horror. The idea of your own body turning against you and becoming the monster of your own story is chilling. The trailer for Shapeless gives us a very welcome outing into the body horror sub-genre. This one turns an eating disorder into an outright demon.
Eating disorder’s are their very own monsters and watching a filmmaker handle that subject matter by turning something so deadly into the basis of Shapeless is a brilliant move on its own. The film looks very well-executed. It’s an incredible demonstration for director Samantha Aldana’s feature debut.
The synopsis for Shapeless goes like this:
Ivy, a struggling singer in New Orleans trapped in the hidden underworld of her eating disorder, must face her addiction – or risk becoming a monster.
Shapeless stars Kelly Murtagh, Bobby Gilchrist, Jamie Neumann, Marco Dapper, Erika Ashley, Gralen Bryant Banks, and Zardis Nichol.
XYZ Film’s Shapeless arrives beginning February 10.
