Pathology

I think the people who wrote this sat down with the thought in mind that they were going to write the worst movie ever made.  But not in a fun “worst movie ever made” way but in a “Let’s take ourselves very seriously” worst movie ever made way.  That’s the only explanation I can think of to explain away this atrocity of a “horror” movie.

The story goes something like this (and by that I mean, this is what happened to the best of my deciphering abilities because plot was not a key ingredient here):  There’s a new student at med school who is first shunned and then accepted by the cool clique of pathology students (insert:  My friend in med school informs me that this is ridiculous in and of itself because NO ONE wants to be in pathology.  Anyone care to weigh in on this?).  He gets to be a part of their little group as long as he plays their game wherein they take turns murdering people in complex, hard to detect ways and then guessing how it was done.  Tell me–what student in med school has time to do this??  I’ve known people in med school and they didn’t have time to eat much less go around sneakily killing people.  *sighs*  Anyway, the game gets complicated (because it was SOOOOO easy before), people start turning evil (more evil?) and all ends in catastrophe (even if no one was caught, you all are still going to flunk out of med school because you were too busy to make it to class).  And along the way just for kicks there’s lots of kinky sex (seems corpses, blood and entrails are a HUGE turn on for these people).

The cinematography features darkness, darkness and more darkness just to drive home the point (I suppose) that the movie is “SCARY”.  I disagree but will say this.  
Pathology is totally evil in that “Why isn’t it over yet, why?  Please let it end, please let it end….” kind of way.

  1. I remember this as “Peter Petrelli” goes and gets it on with an 80 year old hooker (or something) – right? And then in front of some chicks dead dad?? I think I was also kinda “Why isn’t it over yet, why? Please let it end, please let it end….” kind of way.” Please post some more stuff :)

    • Yep, that’s pretty much it in a nutshell, lol! And don’t worry, the next post is tomorrow (M/W/F schedule right now because even though I would love to post everyday, I don’t want to overwhelm people)! :) Thanks again for reading – you rock!

      • YOU rock! Hmmmmm – that’s a good point… I am probably overwhelming or more or less irritating good people by actively posting a lot lately… maybe I should store things up and save them for a rainy day? I don’t know I’ve been having good fun with this thing lately… have a good day!

      • *giggles* Of course I do. I mean…thanks. ;) Nah, I think if you’re having a blast, then by all means post away. :) I’m certainly enjoying reading!

      • and I certainly appreciate you!

      • btw – I have this third site I rarely post on – it’s a Doctor Who site. I don’t get stuff out there much because when I watch one of these I really get into them and write WAY too much. If you wanted to check it out it’s http://www.tdai.me – it’s kinda “guy-centric” but it’s there. I was thinking that I would love to get more content out there and if you ever wanted to do a Tenant or something I would love it. If not, I totally understand. See ya :)

      • Um, sa-weet!!!! I have added this to my list of things to do today (check out awesome Doctor Who stuffs? Check.). And yes, I’d love to! :)

      • i hope you like it OK :)

  2. I actually didn’t mind this one too much. I plan on reviewing it on my site and will probably wind up giving it a C grade. It’s not terrible, but not particularly great either. At least it had some memorable deaths, particularly the liquid nitrogen one. It’s far-fetched, but I kinda dug it as a fairly standard thriller.

    • See, I remember nothing about this movie really other than wishing it would end, lol. Love hearing others opinions so I’m looking forward to your review. :)

  3. So I am giving this another watch, for posterity’s sake, and this is NOT good, but it’s not as bad as I remember, but I’m only about half way through…

And.........Action!
