About the Movie

It's just another night at the morgue for a father (Brian Cox) and son (Emile Hirsch) team of coroners, until an unidentified, highly unusual corpse comes in. Discovered buried in the basement of the home of a brutally murdered family, the young Jane Doe—eerily well preserved and with no visible signs of trauma—is shrouded in mystery. As they work into the night to piece together the cause of her death, the two men begin to uncover the disturbing secrets of her life. Soon, a series of terrifying events make it clear: this Jane Doe may not be dead. The latest from Trollhunter director Andre Ovredal is a scarily unpredictable, supernatural shocker that never lets up.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Gruesome without being gory, "The Autopsy of Jane Doe" achieves real scares with a minimum of special effects. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Dec 20, 2016

Fresh: You could do a lot worse than this effective little chiller from the director of the 2010 Norwegian cult cheapie, Trollhunter. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Dec 23, 2016

Fresh: Ovredal's first English-langauge feature makes good on the promise of his homegrown 2011 fantasy action hit "Trollhunter." – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Sep 16, 2016

Fresh: Even when the movie's falling into a straighter line, the early emphasis on quietly nuanced characterizations and a measured pace give the danger more dimension. – Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times, Jan 5, 2017

Nice suprise - should have gone nation wide

Saw a special screening in LA with Emile doing a q&a. It's a good horror movie. It has fun scares, acting is good & overall it's worth seeing. Director did a fine job - I liked how they would cut back to Jane Doe with close ups - it amped up the dread. The writing at times is so/so. The whole back story with Dad/Mom too on the nose. Two scenes were VERY cliche. One with girlfriend that's literally the same scene in The Descent and one jump scare that's been done so many times. Overall def worth the money.


OMG! Scariest movie I've seen in years! I'm still shaking. Unbelievably well done and absolutely terrifying. So good I think I'll have to muster up the courage to see it again with all my friends. Don't miss this one!


IFC is brilliant at creating high quality projects in this category. I would recommend others that enjoy these types of projects to explore other IFC content that is available for rent.

This story is creepy, but I love the artistic messages that are beyond the obvious. For example, we sometimes attack our loved ones when we are influenced by other forces and our realities are not on the same plane of existance.
