The body horror subgenre is looking to get a lot of love in 2013 with ‘Antiviral’, ‘American Mary’, and now ‘Errors of the Human Body’. Errors of the Human Body is directed by Eron Sheean, who helped write last year’s The Divide. Michael Eklund, whom also starred in The Divide, stars alongside Karoline Herfurth, Tomas Lemarquis, and Rik Mayall. Errors of the Human Body gets a limited release April 19th and will also be available to watch on Cable VOD, SundanceNOW and other digital outlets.
PLOT: Following a divorce from his wife and the loss of his son to a rare genetic mutation, Canadian geneticist Geoff Burton (Elkund) relocates to the harsh, wintry scenery of Dresden, Germany, to work on a groundbreaking new project that might just be his key to redemption. When teamed up with his former intern and colleague Rebekka (Herfurth), he starts working on a human regenerative gene with direct ties to his personal tragedy; yet, matters prove increasingly difficult: jealous co-workers’ feelings are ruffled, old flames are rekindled, and personal demons become consistently harder to suppress in this new and oppressive work environment.
Still haunted by the memory of his wife and his failures to save his deceased son, Burton finds himself maddeningly close to a medical breakthrough, yet quickly spiraling out of control. Collapsing his career and personal life into a dark and increasingly dangerous tunnel-vision of competitive genetics, delusions of all kinds, and the terrifying potential of massive discoveries gone awry, Burton is quite literally the stranger in the strange land. The question remains: How far will Burton be willing to go to atone for the errors of his past?
