While investigating the murder of a family, Sheriff Sheldon and his team are puzzled with the discovery of the body of a stranger buried in the basement that does not fit to the crime scene. He brings the corpse of the beautiful Jane Doe late night to the coroner Tommy Tilden and requests to have the cause of death until the next morning to have an answer to the press. Tommy's son and assistant Austin Tilden is ready to go to the movie theater with his girlfriend Emma, but he decides to stay to help his father in the autopsy. Along the stormy and tragic night, they disclose weird and creepy secrets about Jane Doe.Written by

Olwen Kelly spent around eight hours a day for five weeks lying naked on an autopsy table. Before filming, she said she spent a lot of time thinking "how am I going to be nude, and still, in what will probably be a room full of men?" Her background as a model helped her cope. During an early modeling job after moving to London, she posed totally naked except for a pair of shoes in a room full of people. See more »

Excellent mix of mystery and horror
Without spoiling this movie, let me sum up my impression after I just finished watching "The Autopsy Of Jane Doe". I went out without seeing the trailer, so I thought it was a police/detective movie at first.
But it didn't take long for us to realize it was a horror movie.
Acting : excellent. Bryan Cox and Emile Hirsh play a very believable pair of father-son, working at the family morgue.
Story : very different from the usual horror movies. I appreciated it, as I grew tired of the same ghosts, zombie, vampire stories.
Directing : smart use of the shadows without being excessive.
I highly recommend it.
