Did You Know?


Due to disturbing behavior throughout - including violence, gruesome images, strong sexual content - the first theatrical trailer of the movie was digitally altered. It showed operation scenes without human organs, also Milo Ventimiglia's hands digitally erased in a love scene. But the later Red Band version was released without any alterations.See also Into the Blue (2005) and The Hangover (2009). See more »


(at around 1h 15 mins) When Ted is performing Gwen's autopsy, the entire time the body block (under her neck) is left in place which would have made the autopsy difficult. Usually the pathologist will place it under the back, causing the arms and neck to fall backwards to stretch and push the chest forward to make it easier to cut open. See more »

Grim, depressing and very good
26 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ted Grey (Milo Ventimiglia) joins the pathology department at a major New York hospital. He quickly discovers that some of the pathologists have a deadly game--they kill people in devious ways and see if the other pathologists can figure out how. Jake (Michael Weston) draws Ted deeper into the "game" and things slowly get out of control.

To say this movie is disturbing is putting it lightly. The sick game the other pathologists play is disgusting--but it seems somewhat plausible. Seriously--who KNOWS what happens to your body after you're dead? Also the sequences of them cutting open dead bodies takes a strong stomach to get through. Aside from Ted the movie doesn't have one likable character (I especially hated Griffin) and they're mostly played by unknowns. The only name in the cast (Alyssa Milano) has a very small role. On the plus side this is VERY well acted (Ventimiglia, Weston and Lauren Lee Smith are exceptional), well directed and I was never bored. There's also quite a bit of female nudity and Ventimiglia bares his butt but NONE of it is remotely exciting in this context. And, thankfully, this is the first horror movie in a long time that doesn't have any of those stupid "jump" scares. Grim, depressing and just great--one of the first good horror films in a long time. I only give it a 9 because if you look at it closely it doesn't hold together. Still--well worth catching. Let's hope this entire cast makes it big.
