Dr. Blackwell, the gross anatomy professor, is listed as an M.D., having his doctorate in medicine. However, Gross Anatomy, and all the other basic science courses in medical school (such as histology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, genetics, embryology, and neuroanatomy) are taught entirely by Ph.D.'s who have specialized in the respective fields.

Another gruesome horror film flooding the Sci-Fi Channel...
Cori English is a new med student working with cadavers who feels there's something strange about the body of a young woman the med students have to dissect. She senses the woman has a back story that involves something evil and with the help of a medical colleague (SCOT DAVIS), she goes about an investigation.
So much for the logic of the plotting before things begin to happen that make no sense whatsoever. The horror depends on whether you're frightened of the undead aspect of the story--supposedly featuring real cadavers for the medical sequences. When the most sympathetic and respectful student dealing with the dead is murdered, you have to wonder what the deal is.
The most professional member of the cast is DERRICK O'CONNOR as Dr. Blackwell, with SCOT DAVIS running a close second. Cori English is a bland leading lady as the investigative med student but the rest of the cast is adequate enough for this low-key horror film.
Summing up: Even a few surprising twists can't save a poorly scripted suspenser. No rational explanation can save the back story about spirits--some nonsense about sacrificial rites to an Aztec God--from being more than a little illogical.
