Metamorphosis is a 2022 monster movie about a tyrannosaurus and a giant python that is accidentally unleashed from a lab to wreak havoc.

Directed by Chen Liangyan [Liangyan Chen] (Classic of Mountains and Seas: Ingenious Garlic). The Chinese Beijing Xinwei Film production stars Gao Shuang [Shuang Gao], Sun Ruiqi [Ruiqi Sun] and Cheng Fangxu [Fangxu Cheng].

In the Genge Building in the early morning, a cleaner accidentally opens a metal cage in the secret laboratory and a mutant tyrannosaurus is released.


Meanwhile, wildlife biologist A Liang goes to his ex-girlfriend’s biological gene research company to investigate the existence of stories about a giant horned python



“If all quite silly – witness the beast slipping on shampoo – this is well executed and fun to watch, such as the strip-chase sequence, where Shi has to discard her clothes to throw the monster off her (literal) scent. It is a genuinely nice creation, especially when it enters chameleon mode and goes all shiny and transparent.” Rating: B Film Blitz

” …delivers snake on snake violence, corporate goons, double-crosses, snake on dinosaur violence, a Ripley vs Queen Alien style showdown and a score that sounds like outtakes from one of Dream Theater’s instrumental tracks. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it is a lot of fun.” 3.5/5 Voices from the Balcony

The movie was released online on the YouKu YouTube channel on March 22, 2022.
