Pathology is set in a dystopian South Africa of the future, where impossibly high walls circle the cities, separating the healthy from the virus-ridden and the rich from the poor. Inside ... See full summary »
After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.

In order to prepare for their roles, several cast members watched a number of real autopsies. See more »
(at around 45 mins) When the doctors slam the Asian man's corpse into the wall (on the gurney), it is clear that the actor puts his hands up defensively before he falls. See more »
How do you know I won't tell?
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.

SPOILER: Halfway through the end credits, the film cut's back to Dr. Ben Stravinsky looking at his watch, counting down the final seconds of a poison taking effect. See more »
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!!
