“Needles pierce flesh, fluids ooze and there’s a general air of nastiness to the proceedings here which is quite unusual in Warren’s films; Peppa’s operation is particularly distressing. As a meditation on the horrors of surgery and the extent to which women are either ‘forced’ into such procedures or bring it on themselves it works well, and the surgeon, with his mangled face and straggly hair, is an effective villain.” Dark Eyes of London
” …sees Warren tackle themes of online bullying, sexual harassment, body image, botched plastic surgery operations and the rotten underbelly of the fashion industry. At the same time, Doctor Carver doesn’t lose sight of the fact that it is fundamentally a horror film, and avoids falling into the modern genre film trap of being a moral lecture first and entertainment a very distant second.” Gav Crimson
“Much like The Curse of Humpty Dumpty, which was also produced by Scott Jeffrey, Doctor Carver is both a great horror movie and a brilliant metaphor – touching on the desire to fulfil ones own wants and needs; the pressure to conform to societies vision of beauty; and the very selfish nature of modern society – all wrapped up in director Louisa Warren’s best work to date.” Nerdly
Doctor Carver is available to rent or buy via Amazon Prime in a longer, more violent version.
