Plot – Spoilers:
Dorian who works at a landfill has a sexually satisfying relationship with his wife, who shares some of his alt kinks.

He notices lumps on his stomach coupled with uncontrollable bouts spewing shit and so checks himself into a hospital. But some of the sights he sees there of the sick and dying sends him back home to avoid treatment. Instead, he develops a fascination for his illness (that appears to be colorectal cancer) and begins poking away at wounds that appear.

Carcinoma will lift you soaring high in its ecstasy of pain and suffering while briefly bringing you down. But it’s mostly unrelenting. You might even hate Marian Dora for stripping grief of any frills and shoving it in your face.

Just when you think the guy’s suffering has peaked, it shifts focus to his depressing mother who takes care of him with a noble sense of duty, love and senility. There are also terribly ironic scenes like when she brushes his teeth for him, when the guy is literally rotting and oozing shit and piss. And more tragicomic scenes involving used-tissues and bandages.

    Grossest movie I have ever watched. Kudos for that, but I am not into it.

    Waited years to see this, and truly worth the wait. I’m a huge Dora fan, but as always his films are a combination of how far the mind will go and the things we all try and avoid. Disembowelment, shit, SnM, sex, some stuff with a snake, lots of piss and vomit. TONS of bodily fluids left vague enough for your minds imagination. A “masterpiece” of things Dora specializes in. Not a horror movie, but instead a push for how far you’re willing to watch someone take it.
