Milo Ventimiglia (of the blockbuster TV series Heroes), headlines this dark crime thriller, which marks the sophomore directorial outing of Marc Schoelermann, following the 2006 telemovie Hexxx. Ventimiglia portrays a young intern, newly arrived at the University Hospital in Philadelphia, who stumbles onto a psychopathic group of colleagues playing a vile game. They regularly select one of their members (on a rotational basis) to commit the "perfect murder," while the rest use forensic methods to try to determine exactly how the homicide was executed.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gleefully brimming with body parts and bad behavior, Pathology is a fun piece of flamboyant tastelessness."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Much like Crank, it's the guiltiest of guilty pleasures."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"To put things into perspective, the campier "Saw" films are all better -- and more clever ..."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"As dull as a conversation with a corpse."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"When a movie opens with the diner scene from When Harry Met Sally as performed by cadavers, and later proceeds to sex scenes involving scalpels and needles, the actual plot becomes inconsequential."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, OC Weekly
"Like its characters, the pic is too clever for its own good, allowing the meticulously researched scenario to be undone by implausible behavior and gaping plot holes."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Even squeamish viewers are apt to be captivated by the tight, credible scripting; these 20-somethings talk and behave like today's irony-clad young sophisticates. And whatever your opinion of the subject matter, you can't fault the filmmaking."
‑ Sandy MacDonald, Boston Globe
"Comes off as a semi-absurd variant of the horror mystique cheating the potentials of impeccable production values."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"It's as if [director] Schoelermann and screenwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor had more of a concept than a concrete idea."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Cinematical
"An inordinately sleazy medical thriller operating on the erroneous belief that the combination of hot sex and cold corpses constitutes a real turn-on."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"A particularly nasty slice of medical-themed horror, Marc Scholermann's film is the sort of thriller in which the tenderest scene depicts an autopsy."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"...a sporadically compelling yet hopelessly inconsequential piece of work."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Existing somewhere in a world between Flatliners, Saw and Last Tango in Paris, this oversexed, over the top, underwritten medical horror flick won't come anywhere near the success of those films."
‑ Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine
"Not exactly a great movie, but it's sick, slick, and strange enough to warrant a 90-minute look."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"This is the film that should have been called "Coma""
‑ Peter Sobczynski,
