Critic Reviews of "Pathology"
Los Angeles TimesApril 25, 2008
Gleefully brimming with body parts and bad behavior, Pathology is a fun piece of flamboyant tastelessness.
VarietyApril 23, 2008
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.
Hollywood ReporterApril 21, 2008
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.
AV ClubApril 21, 2008
Much like Crank, it's the guiltiest of guilty pleasures.
Boston GlobeApril 21, 2008
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.
Reel Film ReviewsJune 16, 2009
...a sporadically compelling yet hopelessly inconsequential piece of work.
ESplatterOctober 08, 2008
To put things into perspective, the campier "Saw" films are all better -- and more clever ...
Cinema SignalsSeptember 19, 2008
Comes off as a semi-absurd variant of the horror mystique cheating the potentials of impeccable production values.
Boxoffice MagazineApril 25, 2008
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.
Film Journal InternationalApril 23, 2008
As dull as a conversation with a corpse.
CinematicalApril 21, 2008
It's as if [director] Schoelermann and screenwriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor had more of a concept than a concrete idea.
FEARnetApril 18, 2008
Not exactly a great movie, but it's sick, slick, and strange enough to warrant a 90-minute look.
