What is the film about?

A mystical beauty surgery clinic is built next to a sports club which threatens to ruin the club’s owner. What is going on in this clinic? The solution seems to be inside a bottle of “Fat Burner”. Welcome to the world of kitsch and bad taste!

What influenced it?

Obviously Fatcula is an adaptation of the Dracula story. I got inspired to use a stereotypical genre film structure after visiting Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia. There I saw many films where genre film tropes were used in a clever and creative way.

A little background information...

I got the idea for Fatcula from the observation that our lives are becoming more and more digital but we still have our physical bodies at the same time. We need to do something with our bodies if we don’t want to get serious health issues so we invent different kinds of strange artificial activities or even use surgery. I wanted to reflect the strange subculture/lifestyle of fitness in my film.
