Crank directors Neveldine/Taylor, might solely be the writers in Pathology, with Marc Schölermann directing his only feature-length, but don't let that fool you, this is one wacky ride.

Teddy Grey (Milo Ventimiglia) is a brilliant student who now has the opportunity to join one of the best pathology programs around. When he gets there, he is introduced to Dr. Jake Gallo, one of the pathology rising stars. What he doesn't know is Dr. Gallo, along with the other interns, they are psychopaths. Like full-on crazy. Playing the dangerous game of committing the perfect crime and leaving it to your buddies to figure it out can get addicting, specially if you're constantly one-upping each other.

While this movie does have a whole bunch of gruesome moments and a lot of tension between the characters, there is an itch that develops. An itch that you scratch and scratch and end up bleeding, like many of the characters of this movie.

Between the sexual tension and all the seductiveness of death, this is a movie you'll either love for it's narrative, or hate for it's execution, because let's be honest, this could've been done so much better in a different way.

There are, admittedly, good ideas going on here. The whole game is set to keep each character to find a way to one-up the last one, culminating with the ultimate murder. The problem lies in it's straight-to-the-point method, not giving a single chance to the viewer to actually enjoy the poetic or even, artistic, side of it all.

This is that movie you watch because you believe Grey's Anatomy should've been canceled by now...
