The title of the movie is the entire description possible. A couple corner’s cut into the body of a Jane Doe and strange things happen. In the scheme of things, I can see why someone thought this aspect would make a good movie. But after watching it, I don’t think it should have happened. The movie itself made absolutely no sense, or perhaps I was just oblivious to the point. The two main characters Tommy and Austin (Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch respectively) are the corners who begin to experience strange things. Demonic things, which seems to be the go-to reason behind strange things in movies that make no sense. * Cough Cough * Truth or Dare
Then there’s Emma, Austin’s girl who is played by Ophelia Lovibond (Elementary anyone?). She’s just there to throw more people into the plot line.
The dark ominous shots of the camera do seem to help with the suspense and horror of it all. But the story line just didn’t make sense to me and it felt very stretched out for being in the same room majority of the film. The acting wasn’t great, as I would expect from an IFC film (sorry).
I’m going to go with a “Hated It” on this one. Not worth it. It did however bring back memories of watching CSI with my parents when I was little - why did they let me watch that again?
