Fantastic Fest Review: The Autopsy Of Jane Doe

17 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The bond between a father and son is key to the development of a man’s life. A father can be a teacher, friend, mentor, structure, a bastard and a compass. When the son decides to leave and find his own path, it brings pride, drama and a realistic tension that creates compelling storytelling. One of the weaving themes of this year’s Fantastic Fest film programming has been within the relationship dynamic of fathers and sons in a variety of dark, twisted and thrilling horror narratives. Films like the The Greasy Strangler, Miss Peregrins Home For The Peculiar and one of the best films of this festival, The Autopsy Of Jane Doe, all deal with such themes. Starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, two of the most well respected and true assets to their craft, this profile of family drama, supernatural visual storytelling and growing isolation is laid out »

Trailer for horror The Autopsy of Jane Doe starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch

26 September 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, a poster and trailer have arrived online for Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal’s upcoming horror The Autopsy of Jane Doe which stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch; take a look below…

“Experienced coroner Tommy Tilden and his grown-up son Austin run a family-owned morgue and crematorium in Virginia. When the local Sheriff brings in an emergency case — an unknown female corpse nicknamed ‘Jane Doe’, found in the basement of a home where a multiple homicide took place — it seems like just another open-and-shut case. But as the autopsy proceeds, these seasoned professionals are left reeling as each layer of their inspection brings frightening new revelations. Perfectly preserved on the outside, Jane Doe’s insides have been scarred, charred and dismembered — seemingly the victim of a horrific yet mysterious ritualistic torture. As Tommy and Austin begin to piece together these gruesome discoveries, »

‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’ Trailer: Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch Are Father-Son Coroners in André Øvredal’s Thriller

26 September 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Families who cut open cadavers together stay together. That, at least, is the vibe given off by “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” a thriller starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as a team of father-son coroners whose latest corpse provides more questions than answers. Watch the film’s first teaser trailer below.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe” marks the English-language debut of Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal, who previously directed “Trollhunter.” The minute-long ad doesn’t show Cox and Hirsch performing what are typically thought of as the standard duties of a mortician, but the two of them do seem rather afraid of whatever’s on the other side of the door they’ve barricaded themselves behind. (Spoiler: It’s probably Jane Doe).

Coming Distractions: Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch got a live one in the Autopsy Of Jane Doe trailer

26 September 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as a father-son team running a morgue that turns into a site of supernatural horror. Troll Hunter director André Øvredal brings us this open casket flick, with the supposedly dead Jane Doe making a lot of noise thanks to the bell affixed to her ankle, like a cat whose ringing scares away potential prey.

Seemingly perfectly preserved on the outside, the morticians find Jane Doe’s insides have been gruesomely maimed and scarred, her body revealing clues as to what really happened to her. The closed-environment trope looks to be even scarier when moved from the typical house/mansion to a ’70s-era morgue.

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe premiered at Tiff, where it received mixed reviews. It opens December 21.

26 September 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A father and son coroner team encounter nighttime terror at their mortuary in the first teaser trailer for The Autopsy of Jane Doe.

Synopsis: "A father­-son coroner team (Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch) face the ultimate head­scratcher with their latest corpse: an unidentified beautiful young woman who boasts no obvious cause of death. As they dig deeper into the examination (and into Jane Doe’s body), the duo uncover increasingly strange and terrifying things. This bloody, clever, and medically rigorous horror film turns the morbid conventions of the genre literally inside-­out."

Trailer For Horror Flick The Autopsy Of Jane Doe Brings The Scares

26 September 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We're nearing Halloween season -- the season for chills, thrills, and jumpscares. Yet despite this fact there certainly seems to be a definite lack of horror fare heading to theaters in the coming month, and with the delay of the film Rings, the only real contenders are 31, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and (most terrifyingly) Boo! A Madea Halloween.

While this year has been a definite win for horror, for some reason, this October is totally lacking. This next trailer for the upcoming horror flick, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, doesn't necessarily make things any better for this Halloween, but it certainly seems it could add to the long list of strong scary movies for the year as a whole.

Check it out below!

The movie is directed by Trollhunter director André Øvredal -- and if you haven't seen that gem yet, I highly recommend you do so now -- and »

Horror Rings A Bell In First Trailer For ‘The Autopsy Of Jane Doe’ Starring Emile Hirsch

26 September 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Winning the first runner up for Tiff’s Midnight Madness Audience Award, and earning strong buzz out of Fantastic Fest, let me be frank, I don’t get the hype for “Troll Hunter” director André Øvredal’s “The Autopsy Of Jane Doe.” Cheap, predictable, uninventive — you can read my full review for all my thoughts. The film really didn’t play for me, and I’m slightly astonished that many have been cast under its spell.

Fantastic Fest 2016 Interview: Director André Øvredal on The Autopsy Of Jane Doe & If We’ll Ever See More From the World of Trollhunter

25 September 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director André Øvredal’s latest film, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, recently enjoyed its debut here in Austin for the 2016 Fantastic Fest. The story follows a father and son (Brian Cox, Emile Hirsch) who work as coroners in their family mortuary business. One night, the sheriff drops off the corpse of a young woman found at a crime scene, and the duo have only a short amount of time to try and piece together what happened to the mysterious woman. But as their examination progresses, the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death become more and more unusual, revealing terrifying secrets the further they get in their work.

While in Austin, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Øvredal, who discussed why he felt The Autopsy of Jane Doe was a great sophomore effort, working with his insanely talented cast, and whether or not we’ll ever see more from »

Amazon has released the trailer for “Good Girls Revolt,” a new drama premiering next month. The two-minute spot takes us to 1969 New York, where a group of women working in a newsroom begin to reject their subservient positions to take on more prominent roles.

Lifeless Horror ‘The Autopsy Of Jane Doe’ Starring Emile Hirsch Hardly Registers A Pulse [Tiff Review]

17 September 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the folds of our skin, the space underneath our fingernails, and the composition of our organs, the human body holds secrets and clues to the lives we have lived. From the food we ate, the injuries we’ve sustained and the scars that remain, the vessel through which we experience everything about being alive, leaves a record of our existence before we pass to whatever comes next. The idea of centering a movie, operating as part-horror film and part-procedural, around that idea is a pretty good one.

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’

16 September 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Making good on the promise of his very homegrown fantasy-action hit “Trollhunter,” Norwegian helmer Andre Ovredal’s first English-language feature is something quite different: a chamber horror piece in which a corpse’s stillness only grows more ominously unreliable as it’s dissected. “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as father-and-son morticians whose slab subject seems to exert considerable supernatural will on one stormy night, despite her apparently very dead state. A raucous crowd-pleaser at Tiff’s midnight premiere, this taut, yet often slyly funny scarefest should do well with genre fans. IFC and Raven Banner have picked up distribution rights for the U.S. and Canada, respectively.

Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing’s nicely honed screenplay opens with police investigating a bloody crime scene: Four ordinary residents have been found slaughtered in their small-town Virginia home. All signs indicate that they were trying »
