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 thats only the beginning.

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.

I actually did not get to finish this movie as a huge storm came through right at the end. It was your basic blood and gore flick. How many body parts can we remove before someone dies, etc.
There were a few twists and turns that I did not expect with this movie. I liked the doctor's devotion to keeping his wife alive at any cost. I do not want to give too many spoilers away, so I will stop there.
The plot was easy to follow. Several friends go partying in New Orleans, have a car accident, end up in a creepy disgusting hospital, and they question no one until it is too late. It is definitely a B movie so do not expect the best acting or props. That being said, I would probably watch it again. I would like to see how it ends and who survives.
True horror fans that are looking for something a little different might enjoy this one. Like I previously said, it has a few unexpected twists. I liked that they did not leave too many questions unanswered. I could possibly see a few alternate scenarios but not lots.

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.

I love hospitals as a setting for horror movies. I originally fell for the sub-genre when I discovered Mayasuki Ochiai's Infection, a sublime masterpiece of its kind.
This one had me when I heard the name Dr Benway. It is of course, a reference to William S Burroughs' famous character of that name, a character who's been riffed on by the Firesign Theater and many others. Bless Burroughs' for creating a horror archetype right up there next to Cthulhu. But I digress. Robert Patrick plays Benway with a fine neutrality. Straight laced fellow, probably a competent physician at one time who happens to have GONE MAD TRYING TO KEEP HIS AILING MOTHER FROM DYING AND WHO IS PERFORMING HIDEOUS EXPERIMENTS ON PEOPLE INCLUDING RIPPING THEIR HEARTS OUT AND LINKING THEM TOGETHER WHILE THEY'RE STILL BEATING!!!! Oh yes, this one's good.

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!
