Review – The Autopsy of Jane Doe

It's just so hard to make a horror movie set in a single location without making it look like it began life as a stage play. And the theatrical nature of this production does nothing to counter the stiff feeling of the story (pardon the pun). Like many other unexplained horrors, the strange nature of the anonymous woman's corpse loses a lot of its power to scare once it's explained. As a result, Brian Cox's scenery chewing becomes the most frightening element of the show. Olwen Kelly's ability to hold perfectly still and hold her breath for lengthy shots is impressive, but the overall rating is nonetheless dragged down by the violent death of a house cat. Wish I'd skipped it
