Review: Screen Daily
“Eklund is likely to be in line for more leads after this, while Lemarquis – who has the pop-eyed, grinning, bald look of Peter Lorre inMad Love – might find himself on call for Euro-villain roles. Sheean is clearly a talent to watch.”

“Calm and collected in the most fascinating fashion, Errors of the Human Body is a medical thriller that’s both reminiscent of earlier stories (ones from David Cronenberg or Michael Crichton, perhaps) and astutely unique in its own right. On the surface it’s the story of an American doctor who travels to Hamburg to assist a pair of estranged colleagues who are on to something big in the field of cancer research, but in the layers beneath (and there are several) we have a tense, topical, and fascinating discussion about morality, medicine, the dangers of playing god, the sin of wasting knowledge, the perils of trust, and the necessity of human contact.”

“Sure enough, this unflinching film demands intellectual engagement and integrity from its audience. It is an audacious, delicate, touching step forward for first-time feature director Eron Sheean… it’s an artistic, thoughtful triumph.”

“Errors is beautifully shot with a frosty palette of whites and greys which provide a clinical precision perfect for the storyline. However, this precision extends well beyond the script to both the acting and editing, and this combination is where this film excels. Thrillers are based on buildup and pacing which in Errors borders on immaculate.”

“Sheean, on the other hand, maintains a cool control over his material… Genre fans will find their investment in the narrative rewarded by a couple of horrific developments in the final act…”

[Fantasia ’12] A Trio Of New ‘Errors of the Human Body’ Imagery
By Mr. Disgusting
July 21, 2012
Having its premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival is the sci-fi thriller Errors of the Human Body, which we’ve now scored an official poster and news stills to go alongside yesterday’s clip.
Written and directed by Eron Sheean, who penned last year’s The Divide, Errors is an unsettling, stylistically bold look at the personal and ethical horrors of modern genetic engineering, oscillating quite ambiguously between pure science and terrifying science fiction. It stars Michael Eklund.
Bloody Disgusting, along with our friends at Twitch, has scored an exclusive clip from the flick having its world premiere in Montreal July 28th. Watch the cringe-worthy footage inside and get tickets here.
“Seeking a new laboratory to pursue his controversial genetic research, Dr Geoff Burton takes up a position at the world-renowned Institute for Molecular Cell Biology & Genetics in wintry Dresden, Germany. His contribution to their most top-secret project – a human regeneration gene – has the potential to make something extraordinary out of a personal tragedy that has haunted him for years. But when he uncovers a conspiracy amongst his colleagues, he finds instead something quite different: a terrifying new virus, with potentially both devastating and miraculous consequences for humanity – and for Geoff, who is not only its first victim, but its unwitting source.”

MIFF 2012: A Look at the Australian Showcase Section
By Julian Buckeridge
AT THE CINEMA
One of the reasons many patrons go to Australian festivals is to see the best of local cinema, weeks and months (and sometimes years) before they get a general release. New and old faces come together in the terrific Australian Showcase section at this year’s MIFF, and to help you make the hard decisions, we’ll be giving two picks in each of our four categories.
THE TWO MUST-SEES OF OUR FESTIVAL SCHEDULE
Errors of the Human Body | dir. Eron Sheean
Starting as a Kick Starter project back in 2011, Eron Sheean has followed up his screenwriting role on the post-apocalyptic thriller The Divide with his feature-length directorial debut Errors of The Human Body. Starring Michael Eklund, Karoline Herfurth, Tomas Lemarquis, and Rik Mayall, the film follows a scientist who makes a breakthrough while working on a human regeneration gene. This is an original, interesting, and well shot feature that serves as a parable for the science of our time.
The Sapphires | dir. Wayne Blair
The festival’s Opening Night feature contains an incredible soundtrack, a joyous story and performances from Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens, Miranda Tapsell, Deborah Mailman, and Chris O’Dowd. Having already received widespread acclaim, The Sapphires is one not to miss.
A pocos días de su premiere en el Fantasia Film Festival 2012, la cinta Errors Of The Human Body estrena póster y nuevos stills en la red.
Cuento de terror sobre las consecuencias de la ingeniería genética moderna, Errors Of The Human Body fue escrita y dirigida por Eron Sheean, quien, el año pasado, ostentó el crédito de guionista en The Divide (Xavier Gens).
Así pues, checá aquí abajo el primer póster oficial del filme (click para agrandar):
Protagonizada por Micheal Eklund, Errors Of The Human Body tendrá su premiere mundial el próximo 28 de julio en Montreal, Canadá.

Y, ya para terminar, te dejamos los nuevos stills de la película que ya circulan en la red:
Errors Of The Human Body cuenta la historia del doctor Geoff Burton, quien, desde una renombrada clínica de genética molecular en Alemania, trabaja en un proyecto secreto para crear un nuevo gen regenerador. Este experimento lo obsesiona tanto que incluso hace pruebas sobre sí mismo. Sin embargo, como en cualquier experimento hay fallas, y la falla de éste ha sido la creación de un peligroso virus del que Burton no es sólo el primer portador, sino también la fuente de contagio.
Sigue al pendiente para más noticias.
Three new stills from Eron Sheean’s indie thriller Errors of the Human Body have made their way online courtesy of the Fantasia International Film Festival, and we have them for you right here. The festival is running now through August 7th.
The cast includes Rik Mayall, Michael Eklund, Germany’s Karoline Herfurth, and Tomas Lemarquis. Sheean makes his feature directorial debut from a script he co-wrote with former Edinburgh Film Festival director Shane Danielsen.

Twitch and Bloody Disgusting have just debuted two clips from Errors Of The Human Body which shows at this years London Film4 Frightfest on the Discovery Screen on Friday 24th and Sunday 26th August.
*Please note the original OPIUM coverage of ERRORS OF THE HUMAN BODY is in Polish. The following was translated using Google TranslateOn the occasion of the upcoming film Fantasia Festival in Montreal, there are two short clips.
Although it is only two very short sequences of unknown significance to the plot, this one pleases me. “Errors …” looks exactly as I imagined – it is intimate and focused on detail. The character played by Michael Eklund radically differs from what presented in ” The Divide “. In a word – is good and I can not wait for this movie.
Looking for a new laboratory to continue his controversial research, Dr. Geoff Burton takes a job at the renowned Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden. His contributions to the secret project run there – the human gene for regeneration – has the potential to turn personal tragedy into something extraordinary. But as Geoff begins to suspect a conspiracy among his colleagues, he discovers something completely different – a new, potentially deadly virus. The virus, which unintentionally became the source of the hero himself.

Without any doubt, this production is exactly what we are looking for in today’s science-fiction (in this case even more „science” than „fiction”), so we decided to contact the director of „Errors of the Human Body”, Eron Sheean.
Eron tells us about a unique place where the film was shot, the actors, he worked with: Michael Eklund („The Divide”), Karoline Herfurth („The Reader”), Tomas Lemarquis („Noi Albinoi”), about some crazy mice and how we all end up. Moreover, above you can see the exclusive photo of the movie. Enjoy.
Best known for co-writing the brilliant – claustrophobic apocalyptic film thriller ‘The Divide’, talented Australian filmmaker Eron Sheean is now set to make more waves after wrapping up his feature directorial debut, ‘Errors of the Human Body.’ The psychological genetics thriller was shot on location at Germany’s prestigious genetics research facility – The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics. The film features an all star cast which includes Michael Eklund (who played Bobby in The Divide), Karoline Herfurth (Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer), and Tomas Lemarquis (Noi the Albino).
