“The Autopsy of Jane Doe” Review

I learned a valuable lesson last night that I’d like to pass along to all of you, dear readers. Are you listening? Good…here it is: do not, under any circumstances, watch The Autopsy of Jane Doe alone at night in the dark. Movies as terrifying as Autopsy should be viewed in daylight only, with a crowd of close friends nearby so that you can all look at each other and giggle nervously as if you’re not afraid; but you will be afraid.

Written by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing, The Autopsy of Jane Doe starts out with a nice, gory autopsy (go figure, right?) being performed by a father (Tommy) and son (Austin) played by the venerable Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch respectively.
