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.
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.Read more ›
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.
