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

One of the reasons Olwen Catherine Kelly was selected for her role as Jane Doe was her knowledge of yoga, which helped her control her body and breathing. See more »
Corsets that functioned to narrow the waist to noticeable extremes were not used until the Victorian Era. During the 17th century, women wore stays that mainly functioned to support the breasts and to provide a foundation for heavy garments that were typical of the era to drape upon. Tight-lacing that was seen during the Victorian Era would not be possible in these garments, as the holes for the laces were hand-sewn, and would tear if under too much strain. 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.
