    Milo Ventimiglia (of the blockbuster TV series Heroes), headlines this dark crime thriller, which marks the sophomore directorial outing of Marc Schoelermann, following the 2006 telemovie Hexxx.

Ventimiglia portrays a young intern, newly arrived at the University Hospital in Philadelphia, who stumbles onto a psychopathic group of colleagues playing a vile game. They regularly select one of their members (on a rotational basis) to commit the "perfect murder," while the rest use forensic methods to try to determine exactly how the homicide was executed. Alyssa Milano (of TV's Who's the Boss? and Charmed) co-stars as Ventimiglia's fiancée, while thesps Johnny Whitworth and Lauren Lee Smith are among the perpetrators. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (of Crank fame) scripted. With its sensational mood, Pathology is one of the most enthralling and compelling films this year, so far. And with that spectacular "David Cronenberg" plot, Pathology scores high momentum in the movie score. From revisiting the frequent 2008 movies, there's not much of a selection, or if you want to go see Prom Night than be my guest. But Pathology was mind-twisting, stomach,gushing, and heart-pounding hothouse gripper. So far, it's bound to win for Best Picture. Highly recommended. Expand

    A superb dark thriller starring Milo Ventimiglia as a smart yet confused young doctor pulled into a life of crime and coruption. Made by the creators of Crank, this movie is one of the best movies i?ve seen.It takes a rather original and cruel perspective and it unleashes it in the most violent manner. Great movie.

    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
    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.

    This was a pretty good movie. It's not one of those haunted hospitals or weird deranged doctor stuff. It has a good story line, and some excellent acting.

  1. 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.

    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.
