If not for the aforementioned shallowness, I don't think this is the kind of movie I would usually see. So imagine my surprise when I actually liked it. Yes, it's extremely gory and twisted, but there's something fun in all that. The cast clearly had a blast with their roles, it's easy to imagine outtakes with the actors playing around with some of the more disgusting props.
If you don't take the movie too seriously, it's actually quite enjoyable, and even at times rather thought-provoking. As we left the theater, a discussion was struck up about who we would kill if we could get away with it. All in jest, obviously. (A popular answer "Whatever genius was in charge of marketing this movie." It's only playing on about 45 screens in the entire country.)
Admittedly, this is one of those movies where you're either going to love it or hate it, no middle ground. It all depends on what you're into, really.
And on one final shallow note, if you're a Milo Ventimiglia fan, let's just say you won't be disappointed.
Med school grad Teddy Grey (Milo Ventimiglia) joins the pathology program at Metropolitan University Medical Center and encounters a group stuck up medical students led by Dr. Jake Gallow (Michael Weston) who aren't particularly welcoming. Gallow is an arrogant prick, and rising to the group's challenge, a confident Grey manages to impress with his knowledge of forensics. Becoming involved with the group, Grey soon discovers that their idea of fun is for members to take turns killing people, and for the rest of the group to figure out how the deed was done. These macabre thrills are supplemented by crystal meth and sex. When it is her turn to kill, Gallow's girlfriend Dr. Juliette Bath (Lauren Lee Smith), asks Grey for his help. Accelerating his descent into darkness, Grey participates in a particularly cold-blooded kill, followed by some nasty celebratory sex.
Things get complicated when Gwen Williamson (Alyssa Milano) Grey's fiancé comes to stay. Gallo and Bath's relationship grows more unstable, and Gallo's resentment for Grey grows stronger when he discovers that there is something happening between Bath and Grey. The game becomes more personal, and quickly spins way out of control as Gallo commits mass murder. Recognizing things have gone too far, Dr. Gray makes a bold move to end the game. Gallo counters striking a devastating blow, however Dr. Gray one more ace up his sleeve.Read more ›
The acting in this movies is good, and by good I mean very disturbing. Grey starts off as a genuinely good guy, and is seduced by the prospect of proving he can solve the perfect murder. He initially soothes his conscionce by only killing "undesirables," a term which quickly loosens as the movie proceeds. He is also surrounded by people who, were there such a group in the medical industry, would send many screaming from the hospital. The interactions between the members drives home the creepiness of the film(The memory of two students playing catch with a human brain stands out in particular), though a few are so pushed to the back they might as well not be present.
The movie lacks enough punch to be horror, and far, far too much to be a simple medical drama. It does manage to be very disturbing, though definitely not for its believability. The crimes are commited, and the police are rarely, if ever, involved. The characters have far too much with regards to luck and resources in committing the crimes, and theres not enough explanation of the vagaries of them.
I would give this 3, or possibly two stars, but it manages to be what it appears, a slasher that is both incredibly unsettling, and contains enough good acting to be able to survive to credits. The ending also is one of the best I've seen for a horror in a very long time

Pathology is the kind of debauchery everyone should indulge in once. The depravity is plentiful and mostly plays fresh. The largely unknown cast is both loathsome and fun. Read morePublished 11 months ago by DiscoTex
