Pathology

I was never good at science as a kid.  Well, I was good at it, I simply didn’t enjoy it and it took a whole lot more work than it was worth to do as well as I wanted to in those classes, so I simply stopped caring.  My sister and my brother are just fantastic at science, so I’m at a disadvantage when it comes to family science time.  Now there’s a new movie out which certainly centers on a little bit of science.

Starting this September 23rd, now available on DVD from MGM Home Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Studios Home Entertainment comes a tale of medical knowledge and wanton murder.  Pathology is ready to gut its way into your living room and take you captive with its story of lust and aimless living.  Bring home this medical thriller today!

From the minds that brought you Crank, Dr. Ted Grey is the newest addition to the pathology team at a Washington D.C. morgue.  His intelligence sets him above other students in the team and he feels ostracized.  Yet not everything is as it seems once Ted discovers that most of the other members of his team have an interesting hobby – killing people in medically obscure ways.  Then other members must test themselves to see if they can figure out exactly what happened. Ted becomes immersed in this life, then tries to get himself out and finds out you don’t just change overnight.  This film stars Milo Ventimiglia, Alyssa Milano and Michael Weston along with other assorted character actors.

The special features included in this DVD are a featurette about real life pathologists and what they do, a music video for one of the songs featured in the film, a selection of deleted and alternate scenes and an optional audio commentary from director Marc Schoelermann and writers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

I was thoroughly surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie.  I went into it knowing absolutely nothing about it, other than the guy who played Rory’s first boyfriend on The Gilmore Girls was the main character.  Imagine my surprise when it also featured Alyssa Milano!  I think she’s absolutely fantastic.  Why else did anyone watch Charmed?  Besides for Rose McGowan, I mean.  The medical side of the movie was fascinating as well, as they toss around ideas for how each person was killed.  It was a fairly debauched film, at some parts feeling a little bit more like those scenes in Vietnam movies where they play some Doors song and people just get crazy in the firebase.  This film is a real thriller and the surprise ending is totally worth it.

You’ll enjoy what’s wrong in this Pathology.

This DVD is available on Amazon.com.
