Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Ted Grey arrives at one of the nations most prestigious Pathology programs and is quickly noticed by the program's privileged and elite band of pathology interns who invite him into their crowd. It is also here, where he is introduced to Dr. Jake Gallo, who brings him to a secluded wing, where he and four other indulge in their after-hours, extra-curricular activities...finding ways to commit the perfect murder!

When Ted tells Jake the means of the first murder in 'the game' he says that Jake did it with "you mixed ethanol and nitric acid with the alcohol [sic]; probably a flavored alcohol to mask the bitter taste..." This is incorrect. Acids are well-known to be sour in nature (eg, lemons are sour due to citric acid); bases are bitter.
Even worse, the mixing of ethanol and nitric acid results in a reaction that gives off nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas, and the reaction is so highly exothermic that it can result in an explosion. You can see what really happens by doing a quick search for the two ingredients on YouTube. See more »

Ted Grey (Milo Ventimiglia) joins the pathology department at a major New York hospital. He quickly discovers that some of the pathologists have a deadly game--they kill people in devious ways and see if the other pathologists can figure out how. Jake (Michael Weston) draws Ted deeper into the "game" and things slowly get out of control.
To say this movie is disturbing is putting it lightly. The sick game the other pathologists play is disgusting--but it seems somewhat plausible. Seriously--who KNOWS what happens to your body after you're dead? Also the sequences of them cutting open dead bodies takes a strong stomach to get through. Aside from Ted the movie doesn't have one likable character (I especially hated Griffin) and they're mostly played by unknowns. The only name in the cast (Alyssa Milano) has a very small role. On the plus side this is VERY well acted (Ventimiglia, Weston and Lauren Lee Smith are exceptional), well directed and I was never bored. There's also quite a bit of female nudity and Ventimiglia bares his butt but NONE of it is remotely exciting in this context. And, thankfully, this is the first horror movie in a long time that doesn't have any of those stupid "jump" scares. Grim, depressing and just great--one of the first good horror films in a long time. I only give it a 9 because if you look at it closely it doesn't hold together. Still--well worth catching. Let's hope this entire cast makes it big.
