The Aztec civilization only existed in Mesoamerica, a region which is situated in central Mexico, not in Brazil, yet as the film opens we hear a dialogue wherein Dr Covas exclaims "Aztecs, this far South." This was possibly a deliberate, though inexplicable error by the filmmakers. See more »
This is a solid little low budget horror film with enough tension, humor and gore to keep the horror movie fans entertained. There are strong performances from some recognizable up and comers, including the two leads.
The story is about a female med student who tries to uncover the past of her gross anatomy class cadaver as terror invades the halls of the school. The med student is an atheist, and yet she senses things about the cadaver that lead her to question her own beliefs about spirits, and drive her to find out the truth behind the woman's death.
As she closes in on the truth, the murders increase, making the audience wonder if the cause is really supernatural or if another student or staff member is behind it all.
There are some nice little "gotchya" moments that make you embarrassed that you jumped out of your seat. And some funny scenes when you understand why it's called "gross" anatomy.
