From director André Øvredal (Troll Hunter) comes this supernatural horror film about two coroners, who are asked to perform an emergency autopsy in the middle of the night. At first, there is nothing all that spectacular about Jane Doe, untilTommy and Austen cut her open and find her internal organs absolutely ravaged. All the while, strange sounds and visions begin to be experienced around the morgue, which may be caused by the body that is lying on the slab.
The Autopsy of Jane Doe is an effective horror film that begins as a bit of a mystery and turns into a full-on supernatural shock fest. Practically the entire film takes place in the morgue, with Tommy and Austen being the only characters for the bulk of the film. It should be warned that the graphic autopsy scenes are probably not for the weak of heart, though there is also some effective suspense, and plenty of jump scares, in the latter half of the film. Altogether, The Autopsy of Jane Doe is definitely worth checking out.
