Trivia

André Øvredal said that Olwen Catherine Kelly had the most difficult role in the film, and he credited her with making everyone else comfortable on the set. See more »

Goofs

When the deputy is driving away with Jane Doe's body, the van he's driving has a console stick shift and the speedometer is clearly label in K/H and not MPH. If this were in the US, as is depicted, new vans are not available with a console shift manual transmission and MPH is the standard for speed instrumentation. See more »

Creepy, Claustrophobic and Scary

While investigating the murder of a family, Sheriff Sheldon (Michael McElhatton) 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 (Olwen Kelly) late night to the coroner Tommy Tilden (Brian Cox) and requests to have the cause of death until the next morning to have an answer to the press.

Along the stormy and tragic night, they disclose weird and creepy secrets about Jane Doe.

"The Autopsy of Jane Doe" is a creepy, claustrophobic and scary low- budget horror movie. The screenplay is very well-written and the tension increases as long as the mystery about Jane Doe is discloses by the coroners. The limited use of special effects is another plus in this little gem. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
