Editorial Reviews

Emily Johnson, her boyfriend Bobby and their friends Clare and Jude are recent college grads driving cross-country, taking a last vacation together before they face the real world. An accident leaves them hurt and stranded on a lonely Louisiana road. When the ambulance arrives, it whisks them to Mercy Hospital. With a minimal staff and many of its floors empty, the hospital is an eerie place…but that’s only the beginning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly not terrible April 28, 2009
Format:DVD
I'm not exactly sure why, but I was expecting Autopsy to be a pretty bad entry in this year's After Dark Horrorfest. Well, Autopsy ends up being one of the better entries in this year's lineup, as it provides ample amounts of blood, gore, and entrails, and even a slight wicked sense of humor along the way. The story is typical slasher fare: a group of hard partying friends coming back from Mardi Gras wreck their car, and wind up at a creepy clinic run by the strange Dr. Benway (played by Robert Patrick, William S. Burroughs readers should definitely recognize the not-so-good doctor's name). Before you know it, they're picked off one by one, and wind up in some ultra gorey demises. While Autopsy offers little in the way of ingenuity, it does deliver what horror fans and gorehounds are looking for, and it does both groups justice as well. The acting is all over the place, and we really don't end up caring for any of the characters at all, but in the end, Autopsy winds up being a worthwhile horror dirge. All in all, while there are a number of flicks in this year's After Dark Horrorfest that aren't worth your time, Autopsy is one of the few that actually is, and is worth checking out in that regard alone.

The last of the "8 Films To Die For" that I watched this year is also probably the most "enjoyable." Whereas the other films seemed to want to encourage my suicide with grim themes and cold atmospheres, AUTOPSY harkens back to the old days of horror with gleefully over-the-top psychos and buckets of gore.

This is not to suggest AUTOPSY is the best film of the festival, but it is perhaps the most wildly entertaining. The threadbare story is of five college kids in Louisiana who end up in a car crash. Next thing you know, they are being whisked away to a nearby hospital, sharing an ambulance with a man they ran over, who they are told had left the hospital prior to an operation.

It becomes clear as soon as they arrive that this is not General Hospital! The nurse methodically separates each kid from the others, until only our leading lady, Emily, is left wondering the deserted halls looking for her friends. Soon enough she will be fleeing the resident "mad doctor," who apparently is harvesting organs to keep his dying wife alive.

Now, fear not - I am not revealing plot twists or surprises here, because this is not a movie about story and mystery - it's a simple plot upon which to hang some truly gruesome scenes. If you enjoy gore, you'll find plenty to love about this film - hacked-off limbs, drills to the head, faces pummeled to bloody pulp, intestines spilling all over other people (literally), and a truly bizarre live-operation that has to be seen to be believed!

Fortunately, the filmmakers realize what they are making here, and never for a moment try to make a serious attempt at realism. While the movie isn't silly, like the EVIL DEAD franchise, it does keeps a funhouse tone all throughout.

3.0 out of 5 stars Autopsy April 22, 2009
Format:DVD
Really enjoyed Jenette Goldstein's campy performance. Some great lines, lots of gore, twisted humor. Too bad the young performers played it straight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gory over-the-top fun January 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A somewhat uncommon subgenre of the slasher film is, of course, the "evil hospital" film. I've always been partial to those. "Autopsy" may be the finest example I've seen yet. The setup: a group of college-age kids leaving Mardi Gras get involved in a car accident. An ambulance shows up out of nowhere, with some very unconventional attendants. They talk the kids into coming with them for a checkup at the hospital. The kids get to the extremely creepy Mercy Hospital, a really bossy nurse starts splitting them up, and much merriment, gore and splatter ensues. This flick has SUCH a nasty sense of humor! I repeatedly found myself laughing at things I know I really shouldn't. And talk about gore! Wow! There are a few scenes that are so spectacularly nasty and original that I found myself gasping, giggling, and gagging all at the same time. (Not an easy feat.) It also has a female protagonist who can kick some serious butt--always on the list of my favorite things. If "Hostel" meets "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" sounds like fun to you, do not miss this movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Vivisection? November 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Autopsy is probably not the right word for this film. Autopsies are performed on cadavers - i.e., dead people - and the poor patients checking into this hospital are all quite alive when a mad doctor decides to remove their organs. "Vivisection" would be more appropriate, but then Autopsy isn't interested in accuracy.

Autopsy wisely doesn't even bother with character development. A gaggle of foolish friends are returning home from Mardi Gras when they hit somebody with their car. An ambulance arrives, the dazed victim is carted off, and our protagonists are whisked into creepy Mercy Hospital. Considering the circumstances, it's understandable that they didn't ask the EMTs for identification.

They should have, because two of the EMTs are actually ex-convicts (Michael Bowen as Travis and Robert LaSardo as heavily-tattooed Scott, the less insane of the two). A Nurse Ratched-style matron guards the front door (Jenette Goldstein, our very own Private Vasquez from Aliens). Goldstein, who also was John Connor's adopted mom in Terminator 2, teams up again with Robert Patrick as Doctor David Benway. They are on a mission to prolong the life of Benway's bedridden wife, using science. What kind of science? MAD science of course!

What makes Autopsy so effective is its gleeful embrace of every disturbing hospital phobia: fear of infection, the needles, anesthesia not working, spinal taps, stitches popping, blood spilling, doctors with a cold bedside manner, pushy nurses, being anesthetized against your will, unnecessary tests, and not to mention all the healthcare costs! Okay, that last one I made up but you get the idea - anyone watching Autopsy who is afraid of hospitals will be in a fetal position by the end of this film.
