Grand Guignol horror mystery The Autopsy of Jane Doe hits the home video slab this spring

Winner of Best Horror Film at Fantastic Fest 2016 and one of the scariest damned movies this writer has ever seen, the ominous thriller The Autopsy of Jane Doe makes its Blu-ray and DVD debut as a Walmart exclusive on May 2nd, 2017, from Scream Factory, in conjunction with IFC Midnight.

I’m sorry, but nothing about this black-as-night horror film screams Walmart to me. Life is endlessly amusing.

Anyway, the Blu-ray + DVD Combo will be then available everywhere June 27th, 2017.  This taut, suspenseful film features strong performances from Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox, and has been a hit with critics and audiences alike.


Synopsis: It’s just another night at the morgue for a father (Brian Cox, Trick ’r Treat, Zodiac) and son (Emile Hirsch, Lone Survivor, Killer Joe) team of coroners, until an unidentified, highly unusual corpse arrives. 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 Troll Hunter director André Øvredal is a scarily unpredictable, supernatural shocker that never lets up. This chiller also stars Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones).
