Goofs

After Jane Doe's body is brought in to the morgue on a trolley/gurney Emma leaves. The exterior shot showing Emma's car drive away shows the drive was blocked. There is no room for an ambulance or any other vehicle to have passed Emma's car, nor is there enough room to have pushed a gurney up the drive to the house. See more »

Quotes

Emma: What's that for?
Tommy Tilden: To make sure he's dead. There used to be a time it was hard to tell a comatose person from a dead one. So coroners tied bells to everybody in the morgue. So if they heard a 'ting' they knew somebody down there wasn't quite ready to go.
Emma: So, why do you have one?
Tommy Tilden: Well, I'm... I'm a bit of a traditionalist.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe
20 December 2016 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

After the police discover a corpse in a shallow grave, they take it to father-and-son coroners Austin and Tommy Tilden. During their invasive examination, the duo comes into realization that they are dealing with something supernatural.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe - Was a visual treat to enjoy. I think if you are a fan of well paced films you will enjoy this one. Although it's being treated as a horror film - Which is not a problem unless you generalize this as the overall genre for this movie - Its more of a Suspense Thriller/Drama/Horror. This is not something I feel needs to be clarified, but understood as the film envelops all three entities.

Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox are excellent as father-and-son coroners Austin and Tommy Tilden. One particular moment in the film allows the actors to reflect and truly shine in their respected roles.

André Øvredal (Trollhunter) directs this close quartered film with limited room for our actors to breathe once the tension unfolds - He makes great use of this tension by placing the camera in dark areas allowing us to truly feel the weight of the actors.

Screenwriters Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing craft a smart and well paced story with a few false scares, and flat third act leaving us yearning for more.

Overall, this is a movie that deserves and requires your time :)
