This month, Tetro Video brought us two new releases from the more ‘extreme’ end of the horror iceberg in exclusive collectible editions for Cannibal and Thanatomorphose. Based in the UK, Tetro focuses on the collectible, physical media market as curators of boundary-pushing independent film. Each release is limited and rare, so you’ll need to jump in early to secure your piece of cinema history. March’s selections are no exception. Check out the details below!
From Germany, Mariana Dora’s Cannibal follows the tale of, well, a cannibal who makes a deal with a suicidal victim. Tetro produced no less than three different editions of the film, apparently based on the true story “the Rotenburg Cannibal”, Armin Meiwes. The limited editions included ten copies of a “Golden Edition” and twenty copies of an “Ultralimited” edition, both featuring a mediabook, slipcover, and poster. Unfortunately, they’re all sold out, but fear not! They also produced 300 copies of a standard-edition DVD which is still available … for now.
From Canada comes the body horror work of Éric Falardeau. Thanatomorphose is a beautifully disturbing film about a woman’s psychological and physical deterioration. Think Contracted, only better. Tetro still has (as of this writing) twelve copies of an “Ultralimited” blu ray/dvd combo (from an original 50 copies). If those run out, you can still grab the standard blu ray for this amazing movie that, previously, seemed to only be available on DVD and very select digital outlets.
