The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)

The Autopsy of Jane Doe shows the supernatural events that happen to father and son coroners, Austin and Tommy (Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox respectively), when an unidentified female body (Olwen Kelly) is brought to their morgue needing an urgent autopsy for the local law enforcement. The further they cut the more confusing things become and the scarier the night turns.

Director André Øvredal has made a very confined. It is set more or less in one room with three characters, one lies motionless, naked on a slab but it creates the right atmosphere. It is dark and tense, and gives you characters to care about, which is increased by the father-son dynamic

A very interesting mythos is created and provides a fantastic and intriguing conclusion to the film. It works very well as a solo film but I would love to see an origin story for Jane Doe

Make an effort to see the Autopsy of Jane Doe. It is well worth your time. It did not receive a cinema release in Australia but it is available on home video. ★★★★
