After graduating at the top of his Medical School class from Harvard, Dr. Ted Grey (Milo Ventimiglia), is assigned to a prestigious Pathology program. Soon after arriving in the program, Dr. Grey is befriended by a group of promising interns in the program and in time, learns of a game that the group participates in. The interns plot to commit the perfect murder, and using their knowledge of Pathology and forensic investigation devise ways that a person can get away with murder.
Before he knows what has happened, Ted has become a pawn in their deadline game and must find a way to survive the deadly and complex game he has become and unwitting member of.
“Pathology” is one of the more original and refreshing films of this genre in recent memory. While past films such as “Murder by Numbers”, have examined individuals plotting to get away with murder, and “Unrest”, which looked at eerie happenings in a Pathology lab, the film deftly blends drama, suspense, and horror to create a winning formula.
The supporting cast is strong as it features Alyssa Milano, and John De Lancie of Star Trek the Next Generation fame. The film was written by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor who wrote “Crank” and the pending “Crank 2 High Voltage” and directed by German Director Marc Schoelerman.
The film is gory and viewers should be warned that there are some graphic scenes in the film which are made even more dramatic by the solid picture and sound quality of the DVD.
3 stars out of 5.
