This is a solid movie. The first 60% is about as good a rendition of suspense/thriller as I've seen. After that, as several reviewers have commented, yes: the content does head down a completely different path which was unexpected, which had not been alluded to earlier in the film, and which was jarring to experience and seemed very out of place. I agree that a scene which inexplicably juxtaposes one body with another was the worst part of the film. The rest I can mostly get on board with. I wish the film had stuck with the coroner/detective work which made the first 60% so amazing. Worth the watch, expect for things to go a very different direction in the final act.

This mystery/thriller film is one of those stranger horror films with an interesting concept that leaves you just as much scared as intrigued. A father and son coroner team investigates the body of a young and beautiful “Jane Doe”, where they continue to find increasingly strange physical cues in and outside of her body. The movie was suspenseful to watch as questions began to arise left and right, and fear continued to build. I felt like the director did a great job at creating suspense and at keeping things simple yet complex. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

A different take on the supernatural. It is more of a mystery supernatural film that unravels the plot little by little. Quite compelling to watch.

I really like horror films of ALL kinds, but my favorites tend to be the ones where I think "Well, I haven't seen that before". This is one of those for me. Very creepy, chilling, gory, and I was always completely engaged. Very good acting from the 2 leads! If you are drawn to the horror genre, I totally recommend this film.

Good supernatural horror. The script/dialogue, acting, effects, filming, sound - everything was well done to keep my interest.

This movie had a slow but interesting build-up, enough to make me think it was going to be good. About halfway through it went downhill for me. Really disappointed because I felt that this film had potential.

The creeps just keep on coming'. Did you ever try to get out of a situation, and realized it just kept getting worse? Sometimes you just got to walk away.
This father and son stay. It just gets deeper and deeper. Great creepy film. Well done. A different twist on 'from the grave'.

Picked the best place to control the atmosphere of a horror movie--basement of a morgue. Father and son team of coroner and medical assistant did a great job of pulling answers from their forensics of the dead body until the spooky stuff just messes them up big time. Watched this in the daytime but would have been much scarier at night. Gave me a few jumps.

Fun, frightening, and innovative! Well done and keeps the creeps coming.

Directed by André Øvredal in 2016, this American supernatural horror movie depicts the unbelievable phenomena while father-and-son coroners examine the body of an unidentified woman (played by Olwen Kelly).
It appears like a well-crafted horror film until Emma (a girlfriend of the son) gets killed.
Well, this is a supernatural horror-movie, eh?
I know that, but how could it be possible under the natural circumstances anyboy would expect?
After that, the story gets ridiculously silly and childish while the director makes it foolishly horrible for the sake of horror.
I think I'm too scientific and naturalistic a guy to appreciate such a foolish horror movie.
I laughed my head off to death at the end of the movie.
