Grim, depressing and very good, 26 April 2008
Author: Wayne Malin ( from United States

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.
