German made horror/slasher pic that rocks, as it makes the viewer uncomfortable.
[Anatomy's] premise is so strong and so creepy, that it keeps the film afloat even during its conventional slasher movie conclusion.
Sure, it's a bad film - an insipid, pointless, and occasionally ham-fisted schlockfest. But on that level, it works quite well.
Formulaic horror film obviously aimed at teenage audiences. Sophomoric and senseless.
Not even good enough to hate. Gross, violent and yet lame, all at the same time. I watched it to see Franka Potente, because she is so good in other films....but even she couldn't make this movie better. The anatomy models were the most interesting thing in the film.
Horror Not to Miss List Commentary:
This German film centers around the fictional alliance of medical professionals who believe in a credo antithetical to the Hippocratic Oath, that is their goal is to advance science without regard for the patient instead of vowing to preserve the patient's life above all other duties. This features some of the better effects I've seen in a long time, as the med students of the anti-Hippocratic order use their classmates to make groundbreaking educational installations of human anatomy. Set within the med school, the central heroine gets keen to this practice, and must unravel what is going on before she ends up as the next feature in her professors' exhibit. The plot doesn't get more interesting beyond that, but the gore is amazing and the anatomic installations are beautiful.
Great, gruesome fun with lots of spine-tingling suspense in this German chilling thriller.
