In a medical school, the freshmen students Alison Blanchard, Brian Cross, Carlos Aclar and Rick O'Connor receive the cadaver of a young woman for dissection in their anatomy class of Professor Walter Blackwell. The atheist Alison has a weird sensation that the spirit of the corpse is trying to communicate with her and tries to unravel who the woman was. Meanwhile, all the persons that handle the corpse mysteriously die.Written by

If you still insist on being an atheist, this is the moment to reconsider.

Feelings and such
Sometimes you can feel certain things and other times you wonder how you are almost left completely without emotion ... maybe this will ring true for people watching this. The main character apparently has an inexplicably connection to a body. But hey whatever works for her, might be the fact she is an atheist, who really knows? One thing is for sure: she clearly doesn't.
And the group of people she surrounds herself with are not much help either. Coincidences and a doctor/professor or what he is, who doesn't care about human beings (strange there is no one to discipline him) really do not help the movie though they do carry the "plot". The movie was made for the After Dark Horrorfest or was selected for it - not sure which would be better. But too many cliches for one to really care anyway - unless you watch everything horror related
