Quotes

Ted Grey: How do you know I won't tell?
Jake Gallo: Because there so happens to exist distinct physical evidence putting you at the crime scene at the time of death. I know because I placed it there. And I can prove with a mathematical certainty that you killed him, but that won't really matter if you're the boy I think you are.

Great Talent...Great Plot
21 April 2008 | by Worthabillion7See all my reviews

This film showed promise. A surprisingly fresh idea mixed with talented actors set me up for an enjoyable experience. I wasn't disappointed.

The main story centres around a group of pathology students and their new arrival Ted, (Milo Ventimiglia). When Ted begins his work at the lab, he soon realises that all is not what it seems with the bunch. It seems they enjoy a little extra-curricular activities...a game. A game which involves one of them killing someone and the others guessing exactly how they did it.

Michael Weston is great as the creepy and mysterious Jake Gallo, the leader of the group. The building tension between Jake and Ted is portrayed very well by Milo and Michael.

Lauren Lee Smith also provides some good tension as Juliette Bath, another of the students who is taking an interest in both Jake AND Ted.

The rest of the sadistic group are mostly forgettable, apart from the sadistic Griffin Cavenaugh, Jake's pot-smoking right hand man played by Johnny Whitworth. Alyssa Milano also provides nice backdrop as Gwen, Ted's sweet-natured long-distance girlfriend.

This film is NOT for the light-hearted as it frequently shows autopsies, dissections and violence, as well as a few somewhat graphic sex scenes. The fast-paced build up of the film works perfectly with the final few scenes which play out slowly to emphasise Ted's heartbreak.

Overall, this movie leaves you a little confused, somewhat disturbed but mostly, you get the feeling you just watched a damn good film.
