Connie Wilson highlights “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” for The Movie Blog


As part of the After Dark series of frightening fare at the Chicago Film Festival, veteran actors Brian Cox (the original Hannibal Lecter in 1986’s “Manhunter”) and Emily Hirsch (2007’s “Into the Wild”) are a father/son coroner team assigned to autopsy a beautiful young corpse found at the scene of a harrowing multiple murder. Tommy (Brian Cox) and Austin (Emile Hirsch) Tilden work together at the creepy old Tilden morgue and crematorium in Grantham, Virginia.

As the father-son team dig deeper into examining Jane Doe’s body, they uncover increasingly strange and terrifying things. Look for a more complete review closer to release date, but be warned that this is bloody, clever, medically rigorous and turns the genre literally inside-out.
