Thrillers set in a morgue already have an intrinsic creepiness ready to roll before the viewer even sits down to watch. Here it doesn’t go the hilarious gory route like Re-Animator, unfortunately. A young, promising doctor (Ventimiglia of TV’s Heroes) joins a group of (far too hip, way over the top) pathologists in a major hospital. He is soon caught up in their game of killing people and then having the others figure out how it was done. While I’m sure people get up to some nasty business in a morgue, what makes this rather a bit unrealistic is the total all-round lack of conscience and overly cool and arrogant air of the lead characters who one would expect entered the medical field for benefit of mankind as opposed to acting like total jerks messing around with corpses…but, one would have one’s doubts why anybody would want to hang out with dead people…
