THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE terrified audiences at The BFI London Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Fantastic Fest and Sitges Film Festival. And now for one night only, you can see André Øvredal's horror on the big screen, thanks to a special presentation courtesy of Lionsgate UK and FrightFest.
Described by the godfather of genre, Stephen King as a “visceral horror to rival ALIEN and early Cronenberg”, the one-night special presentation will also include a 15-minute Q&A with Trollhunter filmmaker Andre Øvredal hosted by Frightfest’s very own king of horror, Alan Jones.
Synopsis: Experienced coroner Tommy Tilden and his grown-up son Austin run a family-owned morgue and crematorium in Virginia. When the local Sheriff brings in an emergency case – an unknown female corpse nicknamed ‘Jane Doe’, found in the basement of a home where a multiple homicide took place – it seems like just another open-and-shut case. But as the autopsy proceeds, these seasoned professionals are left reeling as each layer of their inspection brings frightening new revelations. Perfectly preserved on the outside, Jane Doe’s insides have been scarred, charred and dismembered – seemingly the victim of a horrific yet mysterious ritualistic torture. As Tommy and Austin begin to piece together these gruesome discoveries, an unnatural and terrifying force takes hold of the crematorium. While a violent storm rages above ground, it seems the real horrors lie on the inside…
Directed by André Øvredal (Trollhunter, Mortal) THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE stars, Brian Cox (Manhunter, Braveheart, RED, The Escapist, Churchill), Emile Hirsch (Killer Joe, Speedracer, Into The Wild, Lone Survivor) Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy, Nowhere Boy, Man Up), Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones, The Hallow) and Olwen Kelly as Jane Doe.
In addition to the one night only screenings on 31st March, Frightfest will also host an earlier special screening of THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE exclusively for horror fans on Thursday 16th March at Picturehouse Central, which will also feature a Q&A with André Øvredal.
Alan Jones, Co-creator of Frightfest said "FrightFest are thrilled to focus attention on director André Øvredal’s fresh, shocking and invigorating take on investigative horror featuring two wonderful central performances from Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch".
