IGN: The Autopsy of Jane Doe Review

Recommended Posts

2016 has been an inarguably great year for horror films, from chilling arthouse outings like The Witch and The Monster (both, interestingly enough, came from A24), all the way to horrifying studio films like The Conjuring 2, Don’t Breathe, and Ouija: Origin of Evil. By all accounts, this will likely go down as a milestone year for the genre, which has already been on a steady climb back to greatness over the past few years, and with just a few more weeks to go until 2016 is over, the year still has one great horror tale to fill our nightmares with.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a single-location film that at times, feels just as much like a supernatural horror story as it does an engrossing, blood-filled mystery. Starring Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, the film centers around father and son duo, Austin (Hirsch) and Tommy (Cox) Tilden, who work feverishly as their Virginian town’s go-to coroners out of their family’s underground, labyrinthian morgue. Both experts at deconstructing dead bodies and determining cause of death, the two are just about to call it a day when the film begins, before agreeing last minute to examine the body of an unidentified Jane Doe, delivered to them by the blunt Sheriff Sheldon (Michael McElhatton).
