There’s ample hackwork—in a morgue, no less—in this murky, gruesome, utterly disposable
med-resident thriller from Germany’s Marc Schoelermann, whose only personal stamp seems to be a fondness for Seven’s helicopter shots. Harvard grad Ted (Ventimiglia) arrives at his internship in big, bad L.A. and immediately runs afoul of his vampire-like peers, who enjoy late-night autopsy sessions, copulation near corpses and an unusual amount of pre-op roughhousing. Ted doesn’t put up much of a fight; no doubt his instant moral descent was considered “edgy” by someone involved. An earlier generation had Flatliners. We have this.
