It's OK.

I'm not crazy over Milo Ventimiglia's work and only know him from the show Heroes in his role as Peter Petrelli. He's good in that role but I still find him annoying with his raspy "look how mysterious I am" voice and his floppy bottom lip. I just can't take him seriously and although he does seem to be trying to branch into more prominant acting roles, he's still that annoying Peter Petrelli. Michael Watson who's the general catalyst of the whole movie I only know him for his short part in season 5 of House M.D. as the private investigator. I like him in that and generally like him all round, he would have suited the lead role much more than Milo, but there you have it.

Pathology tells the story of Medical student Ted Grey (Ventimiglia) who's just graduated top of his class and has been accepted onto the most prestigious pathology program in the country. One of his fellow Pathologists Jake Gallo (Weston) indulges Grey in their extra-curricular activities which is to commit the perfect murder. This is the point where the movie gets interesting as it's not just a competition were creepy pathologists go killing, it turns into an orgy of sorts as part of the game. It involved death, disection, drugs and just wild and filthy sex. It gets into a bit of a creepy storyline that can hold your attention throughout so I guess that's a big plus. Throughout the murder games, Grey becomes acquainted with the fiancé of Gallo and this turns the movie into a whole different ball game.

It starts off as one of those movies we see a lot of recently which generally seems to be of the "gorno" genre, but it turns into a genuine thriller/horror that becomes in some senses quite disturbing. It's a dark film with a relatively dark setting, with most of the craziness of the movie taking place in the dark autopsy room. On further reflection I guess Milo isn't as bad in the role as I originally thought, but there could have been a better choice. I would recommend this to those fans of the horror/thriller/"gorno" genre but this may not be for everyone.
