The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) Review

28 January 2017 6:33 PM, PST | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Jesse Miller,

MoreHorror.com

A father and son team of coroners are planning to close up shop for the night when the local police drop a Jane Doe in their laps and requests a cause of death for the press by the next morning. With no time to argue, they get to work on dissecting what's going on.

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe plays out almost like a theater production, with two leads playing off of each other in the one location trying to uncover this bizarre situation they are in while the story also explores their relationship.

In that regard, it is absolutely masterful in its execution of tension as the film goes on and things get stranger and stranger.

Praise has to be thrown to the film makers here for their attention to detail and shocking reveals. Every twist, every turn of events, every little thing »

Q&A: ‘Adult Babies’ creator Joanne Mitchell talks all things horror

20 January 2017 3:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Adult Babies gets an exclusive reveal at Horror Channel FrightFest Glasgow 2017, in anticipation of the event, actress / producer Joanne Mitchell – star of Before Dawn and Bait; and creator of Adult Babies – answers 10 scary questions…

When did your fascination for horror films begin?

I’ve been interested in horror since being a young kid. I liked to be frightened, whether it be reading a scary book, or watching one of the Hammer House of Horrors. But it wasn’t until my 30’s that I really became fascinated with the whole genre after making ‘Before Dawn’ and watching back to back movies at FrightFest!! The fans are so loyal and open minded and really know their stuff.

What was the first horror film you saw?

I’m pretty sure it was ‘The Thing’. If I remember rightly my brother and his mates had managed to get a copy and I snuck in! »

Warning: spoilers below! If you've already taken our friendly advice and watched André Øvredal's The Autopsy of Jane Doe, then you know that the supernatural horror film ends on a fairly dismal note.

4 Big Reasons Horror Fans Absolutely Can't Skip the Autopsy of Jane Doe

17 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Don't you hate when a movie's trailer ends up being way better than the movie itself? No genre suffers from this more than horror. When a trailer for a scary movie is stuffed with its biggest jump scares and not-so-subtle hints at a twist ending, it simultaneously entices audience members into the theater while also spoiling their eventual viewing experience. If the best parts are in the trailer, then what's the point of even watching? When the trailer for The Autopsy of Jane Doe was released in December it almost immediately went viral, and though I was interested in it straightaway, I couldn't help but wonder if it was yet another flimsy horror movie skating by on trailer-friendly scares. Fortunately it delivers, and then some. Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox star in the indie flick as father-son coroners tasked with performing an autopsy on a mysterious young woman, and the »
