Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Ted Grey arrives at one of the nations most prestigious Pathology programs and is quickly noticed by the program's privileged and elite band of pathology interns who invite him into their crowd. It is also here, where he is introduced to Dr. Jake Gallo, who brings him to a secluded wing, where he and four other indulge in their after-hours, extra-curricular activities...finding ways to commit the perfect murder!Written by
In order to prepare for their roles, several cast members watched a number of real autopsies. See more »
When Ted tells Jake the means of the first murder in 'the game' he says that Jake did it with "you mixed ethanol and nitric acid with the alcohol [sic]; probably a flavored alcohol to mask the bitter taste..." This is incorrect. Acids are well-known to be sour in nature (eg, lemons are sour due to citric acid); bases are bitter.
Even worse, the mixing of ethanol and nitric acid results in a reaction that gives off nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas, and the reaction is so highly exothermic that it can result in an explosion. You can see what really happens by doing a quick search for the two ingredients on YouTube. See more »
Hi friends - I'm going to be honest here, PATHOLOGY really impressed and surprised me. On the surface PATHOLOGY seems like a fun, silly, popcorn movie (from the writers of CRANK) in the vein of FLATLINERS or ANATOMY however, excellent direction, great photography, and solid performances really elevate this little horror/thriller and make it so much better than I (and I'm assume you) could expect. It's a shame that MGM hung this movie out to dry in the theaters but I'm guessing it's because they didn't know how to market it. You see: PATHOLOGY is kind of immoral, mean spirited, filled with sex, and features some great medical based gore my (and I'm assuming your) kind of movie but certainly not an easy sell. I guess at it's core PATHOLOGY is a fun, silly, popcorn movie but it's executed so well that it rises above the rest of the trash in the theater right now (4.20.08). So check this movie out I think you (and you) will like it.
