Pathology

A tale about life and death.

Aspiring doctor Ted Grey, played by Milo Ventimiglia,  is excited about his residency at one of the most prestigious Pathology programs in the country. But he has no idea just how exciting it will get.

When the elite students think they know everything, nothing holds a surprise or mystery anymore, what else is there to do? A game comes to mind. A rather morbid one, but after all they are all working in Pathology, cutting open dozens of bodies a day. To really get a kick out of something it has to be extreme. How about committing the very thing they are supposed to solve? Murder.

A small group of the best students gather and try to up each other with the perfect, untraceable murder. Grey gets sucked in and as is typical for such scenarios can’t back out when he wants to. More extreme measures have to be taken.

This has got to be one of the most enticing, appaling and fascinating films I have seen in quite a while. The emphasis is not on the splatter, slasher, gore component, but the psychological mindfuck that is going on. Milo Ventimiglia and Michael Weston are great as the two antagonizing forces from the start. The supporting cast is solid with a stand out performance by Lauren Lee Smith, who had me enthralled and chilled to the bone at the same time. Creepy and powerful performance.

Overall a must see. Not just for the great performances, but the thoughtprovoking subject matter. What exactly makes a serial killer? There is a fine line between insanity and genius. A rather disturbing and unsettling thought. Highly recommended film.
