Where I Got It: Friend's DVD


A father and son, both coroners, are pulled into a complex mystery while attempting to identify the body of a young woman, who was apparently harboring dark secrets.


My friend brought this over while we were hanging out. It was a random one and she couldn’t even remember where they got this. So why not watch the mystery horror film with a mysterious origin? ;)

This movie follows a father and son duo who are coroners and help the police figure out who and when someone dies. They are presented with a random and mysterious dead body of a young girl who is somehow connected to a three-person murder. Well…things are not what they seem once they do some “digging” into the body. Things get scary and dangerous pretty dang quick. 

This was such a morbid film. The scariness is increased just for the simple fact these two men work on dead bodies. A great setting! Certainly scary by itself. 

Those eyes…they haunt me.  LOL. No, but seriously. Even before learning more about this dead body she gave me the creeps. Once we find out more, she turned into a more ominous and scary “person”.  The scariest aspect of this body is that she legit is just a body. No talking, no moving, nothing, but she is horrifying. 

The scenes of digging into the body were gross, but it added to the film. This is not for the weak of stomach. 

That ending PISSED ME OFF. For real. That was such a crappy ending. After everything and all the promises? And that is how they end it? I did get a chuckle at the toe, but still…I was not amused. I feel it took away from the story in a way. Hard to explain without EXPLAINING what happened. SUPER GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! *shakes fist* UGH! Sorry…it just angered me. 

What else to say about this one?

This was creepy and scary. The story had a good twist on the body and I liked it. I hated the ending though. Maybe it is just me though. I do recommend it if you want to be scared and creeped out. Just be warned there is some dissecting and digging at the body (ies). They are morticians after all. LOL

In the end, I’ll give this 3 stars. Nearly a 4, but I was super mad at the ending. Def recommend this for horror movie fans.
