    Even squeamish viewers are apt to be captivated by the tight, credible scripting; these 20-somethings talk and behave like today's irony-clad young sophisticates. And whatever your opinion of the subject matter, you can't fault the filmmaking.

    When a movie opens with the diner scene from "When Harry Met Sally" as performed by cadavers, and later proceeds to sex scenes involving scalpels and needles, the actual plot is inconsequential. Fans of hard-R exploitation will love this; everyone else will likely be appalled. Screw 'em.

    A nasty, naughty little film, a delightfully disagreeable horror-thriller.

    Much like "Crank," it's the guiltiest of guilty pleasures.

    Like its characters, the picture is too clever for its own good, allowing the meticulously researched scenario to be undone by implausible behavior and gaping plot holes.
  6. It takes a certain genius to make butchered corpses, sociopathic lunacy and meth-fueled debauchery nerve-scrapingly dull, and German director Marc Schoelermann and screenwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) possess it.
  7. A particularly nasty slice of medical-themed horror, Marc Scholermann's film is the sort of thriller in which the tenderest scene depicts an autopsy.

    Alyssa Milano is a delight, but her ten to thirteen minutes of screen-time mark her as more of a distraction than substantiation.

    A fast-paced movie that goes right into business without any hesitation.

    The characters seem a little distant and obnoxious, but when layers are stripped, their behavior, in a way, gains reason. Not too much, of course, given the idea of the movie, but at the same time it makes you wonder: "why not?". Morality is bounced back and forth in this movie, though never really touched other than from a safe distance.

    The way the world of these young pathologists is displayed is probably kind of surreal; I would assume a little gore and nonchalance is added to the mix to give the desired effect. Nonetheless, this is not the job you talk over on a candle-lit supper after a day at work.

    I watched the movie to see Milo Ventimiglia's performance, and I was not disappointed.

    The emotional level of the characters isn't mind-blowing, but there is some internal struggle to be seen when one looks at the right things. Witty, snobby remarks are thrown back and forth, some of them quite amusing.

    For me, the end of the movie was wonderful. "Serves you right" is what came to mind: next time you're about to do something morally questionable, stop for a moment to think if it's something you would like to be done to yourself - with a little extra, of course, because that's how it works between us people. Karma is a **** they say.

    Extremely awkward. Plot development is empty and the acting is nothing special, which is the overall feeling of this movie...nothing special.Extremely awkward. Plot development is empty and the acting is nothing special, which is the overall feeling of this movie...nothing special. Just another gruesome, gory, and violent movie trying to mask itself with a mildly interesting plot. By the end of the movie you find yourself saying "Why am I watching this?" Full Review »
