Jimson Weed, Datura stramonium, is believed to have originated in Mexico, not New England, and can be found throughout the United States, (including the South and West,) and the rest of the world. The plant also has no paralytic properties, though ingesting it can cause seizures, strong hallucinations, delirium, tachycardia, hyperthermia (high body temperature), mydriasis (dilated pupils), bizarre behavior, and death.

just when you thought the genre had completely sold out...
20 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since wishi washi pseudo horror films ala insidious and co dominate the genre at the moment i never expect much when watching a new entry.And much to my surprise Jane Doe is a REAL horror film in finest John Carpenter b-movie tradition.

Jane Doe starts out strong, builds atmosphere with genuinely creepy scenes and manages to keep its mystery and secrets just long enough to satisfy. Much of this is due to the moody music which probably made half the film!

Sure there is the occasional i-already-know-whats-coming-next/ clichéd shock scene, but such sins are easily forgiven within seconds since the intense atmosphere of this film pulls the viewer back in mercilessly.

If you appreciate classic oldschool flicks like John Carpenters 'The Fog', Jane Doe will not disappoint. Go see it!
