Quotes

Ted Grey: How do you know I won't tell?
Jake Gallo: Because there so happens to exist distinct physical evidence putting you at the crime scene at the time of death. I know because I placed it there. And I can prove with a mathematical certainty that you killed him, but that won't really matter if you're the boy I think you are.

Pathologically Intense!!
2 February 2009 | by bigdarvickSee all my reviews

After being burned repeatedly at BlockBuster and Redbox by renting (or even buying) the crappiest horror flicks i.e. Tooth and Nail, Hide and Creep, Crazy Eights and other horribly made horror films--it was finally a "hit" with "Pathology!" I saw the film for sale in a used DVD bin. I carefully examined the cover looking for tell tale signs of a low budget stinker. Sometimes you can tell by the studio (Full Moon) or the so called favorable reviews-- even the type face used in the cover art can reveal if a film may be a bomb. As I stated before, I had a run of bad movie rentals and buys so I was surprised to find one that was not only good, it was great!! I had plunked down 7 bucks for Pathology and it was worth every penny. Great visuals of the lowest decadent behavior you can imagine. Autopsies, sadistic sex, drug use, revenge and so much more. Fast paced editing with interest levels held high, I was engrossed in this tight little movie. Believable acting with a gold star going to the actor playing Dr. Jake Gallo. When there are scenes in a movie that make a life long horror fan such as myself turn away in disgust, I know it's a winner!!
