100 Movie Challenge 2016 - # 133: Pathology
Genre: Drama/ Thriller/ Horror/ Crime
Runtime: 91 minutes
Starring: Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Weston, Alyssa Milano, Lauren Lee Smith
Description: A group of medical students devise a deadly game: to see which one of them can commit the perfect murder.
Review: A group of intelligent pathologists decides to play a sick game: who can commit the perfect murder. Each one of them commits a murder and then they are trying to find the cause of death.
“Pathology” is a bit gruesome, because of the dead and mutilation that is also mixed with sexuality. Not every viewer can handle this, but it is original and provoking. And “Pathology” is definitely a thriller you will not easily forget.
But it’s mostly the shock effect that will stay in your memory. I never got intrigued by the film and it didn’t hold my attention the entire runtime. And it’s not very convincing that Ted, who is a good and smart doctor who loves his fiancée, all of a sudden turns into a relentless killer and adulterer. With that, there are no characters that you feel for or want to identify with.
“Pathology” is original and shocking, but overall it’s not very special.
Rating: 2,5/ 5
