To put things into perspective, the campier "Saw" films are all better -- and more clever ...
| Original Score: 2/4
Gleefully brimming with body parts and bad behavior, Pathology is a fun piece of flamboyant tastelessness.
| Original Score: 3/5
Much like Crank, it's the guiltiest of guilty pleasures.
| Original Score: B-
Even squeamish viewers are apt to be captivated by the tight, credible scripting; these 20-somethings talk and behave like today's irony-clad young sophisticates. And whatever your opinion of the subject matter, you can't fault the filmmaking.
| Original Score: 3/4
Not exactly a great movie, but it's sick, slick, and strange enough to warrant a 90-minute look.
When a movie opens with the diner scene from When Harry Met Sally as performed by cadavers, and later proceeds to sex scenes involving scalpels and needles, the actual plot becomes inconsequential.
If you are a hardcore fan of films like FLATLINERS, I guarantee that you'll dig this flick... PATHOLOGY is really a gem that doesn't deserve to be overlooked.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
One of the more effective and chilling thrillers released this year.
Medical thriller mixes extreme violence, sex.
| Original Score: 1/5
...a sporadically compelling yet hopelessly inconsequential piece of work.
Comes off as a semi-absurd variant of the horror mystique cheating the potentials of impeccable production values.
Existing somewhere in a world between Flatliners, Saw and Last Tango in Paris, this oversexed, over the top, underwritten medical horror flick won't come anywhere near the success of those films.
| Original Score: 1.5
Like its characters, the pic is too clever for its own good, allowing the meticulously researched scenario to be undone by implausible behavior and gaping plot holes.
As dull as a conversation with a corpse.
It's as if [director] Schoelermann and screenwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor had more of a concept than a concrete idea.
A particularly nasty slice of medical-themed horror, Marc Scholermann's film is the sort of thriller in which the tenderest scene depicts an autopsy.
An inordinately sleazy medical thriller operating on the erroneous belief that the combination of hot sex and cold corpses constitutes a real turn-on.
| Original Score: F
This is the film that should have been called "Coma"
