Like the Last Shift adventure that had stopped at the theater homeland last year, the fate of The Autopsy of Jane Doe is practically an ape. Imagine, given the lessons taken over the name carelessly, sung by the director has a track record of success before Trollhunter's work is very warm by lovers of world horror films, and the premise of stretchers watched, this film was never expected to be shown by many people. After being first introduced to the public through the Toronto International Film Festival, The Autopsy of Jane Doe then greeted the audience of scary shows only through limited releases in theaters, streaming platforms, and home videos. Almost no sound was heard. Allegations that then arise, does this mean that the film directed by André Øvredal has less approval to the point that other distributors are willing to pour out large funds for promotion and release? But, (again) as requested. Last Shift, the quality of the main coverage that underlies because it supports this second title - specifically the Autopsy Jane Doe - is a protected treasure that is not passed away by horror movie lovers.

Olwen Catherine Kelly who was found half-buried in the basement of the house that became the crime scene of the murder. Sheriff Sheldon (Michael McElhatton) who was assigned to do this strange report then brought the body of the woman named Jane Doe to local autopsy experts, Tommy Tilden (Brian Cox) and Austin, Austin (Emile Hirsch), to reveal their use. Revealing the trigger for the fall of Jane Doe was even as easy as turning the palm because Jane Doe's corpse was rejecting ordinary corpses. After all, there were three irregularities that Tommy had successfully sniffed. First, there are no signs of injury or trauma in the body. Second, the body of the victim at the time of death just happened while the eyes of the victim and then the death when it happened a few days ago. And three, some parts of the body that are damaged without leaving a scar on the outside. Read more about Jane that was eradicated by Jane Doe. It is Tommy and Austin who must overcome all that is difficult to be discussed by reason.

In raising the hairs of the audience at The Autopsy of Jane Doe, André Øvredal often plays with the atmosphere that creates discomfort. Difficult to be able to sit in a cinema chair without being disturbed by feelings of anxiety when they view that unfolds on the screen is a narrow elevator that is the only access to get in and out, a long hallway with dim lighting, and an autopsy room full of corpses located at the end of a basement. Nothing, the filmmaker has created an intense claustrophobic feel. Then add all these disturbing things to the corpse of Jane Doe. What has not been described in the synopsis - but can be known through posters - is the corpse's eyes are always open. Try to imagine yourself in the position of the Tilden family: autopsy a corpse whose eyes seem to be looking at you in a closed room in the basement. Horrible? Clear. Moreover, its origin is not known with certainty. The Autopsy of Jane Doe feels delicious not only because of the director's expertise in creating cringe due to anxiety but also thanks to the dense mystery that surrounds the scrolls of narration.

Amid the inconvenience, we are also made to wonder about the identity of Jane Doe. Who is he? Does he have anything to do with the murder handled by Sheriff Sheldon? What is the main cause of death? Why not found signs of some kind of injury or trauma that generally appears on the corpse? This series of questions is the main scalpel used by André Øvredal to ensnare the attention of the audience to be willing to follow the course of the film to close the duration. The emergence of many strange events in the autopsy room such as a radio channel that suddenly changes itself can be said to effectively help increase the horror, but once the film is separated from the second half marked by unveiling the mystery, The Autopsy of Jane Doe is no longer as gripped by its early half. The reason, the combination of the translation of the answers is less satisfactory (had a joke, "well ... this again!") And the dependence of André Øvredal to jump scares nickels. Not bad after all, the intensity can still be felt, it's just far from a special impression like the first step because some tricks to scare him have been applied quite often in similar films. Quite disappointing indeed, but fortunately not to tarnish the film as a whole. The Autopsy of Jane Doe remains one of the hidden treasures ’for spooky spectators.
