Product Description

Amazon.ca

Chilly blond Mimsy Farmer is an Italian medical student who has disturbing visions of the waking dead during a rash of grotesque suicides. She works in a morgue where every living man in her orbit hits on her and one coworker even tries to rape her ("You can't blame a guy for trying. Nothing turns on a man more than an icy woman," comforts an oh-so understanding boyfriend). Barry Primus is an angry priest with a dark past and anger-management issues (he screams, "I've killed many others and I'll kill you too," while beating a man's skull into the pavement). The apparent cause of the suicide hit parade is extreme sunspot activity (each death is punctuated with fiery images of solar flares), but when victims close to Farmer start dropping from high-rise windows, the picture twists into a murder mystery with a gallery of sleazy and shady suspects. Director Armando Crispino fills in the edges with unending images of death, shocking violence, and gratuitous nudity, creating an intermittently stylish but often bluntly exploitative horror mystery. Shorn of 15 minutes when it debuted in American theaters in the mid-1970s, the sex and violence has been completely restored for video. One short scene is in Italian with English subtitles, due to missing soundtrack materials, while the rest is dubbed in English. Ennio Morricone provides a suitably strange mix of atonal stings and lovely melodies. --Sean Axmaker

2.0 out of 5 stars misleading box art Nov. 9 2000
Format:VHS Tape
From the cover image on the Anchor Bay remaster of "Autopsy," you'd think it would be a hard-core horror film taking place in a morgue. Unfortunately, that kind of assumption is only wishful thinking compared to the VHS tape within.
This is a mystery movie (or a "giallo") masquerading as horror. It's slow-moving hoopla about a series of alleged suicides connected to someone wanting to get their hands on an inheritance. Yawn.
The only actor worthy of note is Barry Primus--as the screw-loose Father Lennox--whose over-the-top performance keeps things interesting. Mimsy Farmer as a medical student on his tail is ice-cold and sometimes irritating.
Don't buy this expecting horror--it's just a slow movie set apart from other low-budget Italian efforts of the time by it's appalling lack of action; the only violence literally comes at the very beginning and the very end of the movie. The rest of this is intriguing but ponderous--you may find it hard to stay awake for the full duration of "Autopsy."

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good thriller and not what you'd expect April 10 2000
Format:VHS Tape
What appears to be marketed as an exploitation piece (the film title 'Autopsy' and video cover) is actually nothing of the sort. There are some vicious moments - but this film is actually character driven, not gore driven; in fact there is very little gore, but the story doesn't need it.
This is a well-made, suspenseful movie, with decent acting and a solid plot. The odd moments of violence are often under-played and intelligently put across. Ennio Morricone's score is as affecting as any of his other soundtracks and the direction is fairly strong.
All in all, an interesting thriller, which whilst in its time (made in 1973) could have caused controversy (the US Censors snipped 15 minutes for a theatrical release in 1975), is nothing more by today's standards, than an adult murder-mystery with some interesting special effects
Ignore the cover - ignore the title; this is not cheap exploitation trash, but a well-made Italian suspenser. As long as you don't mind the odd plot-jump and usual 'Italian to English' dubbing (is it me or are the same ten actor's voices used to dub EVERY film from Italian to English?), this is worthy of 2hrs of anyone's time.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie *does* need an AUTOPSY April 9 2002
Format:DVD
This has got to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I was expecting a scarey well written horror movie..wrong...What you get is a dimwit main character (Mimsy Farmer) who isn't even attractive and we're subjected to her nudity in some scenes in the film. It has a stupid plot (Ok she's seeing dead people come to life) The film has many chances to capture the audience but fails miserably. The sets [stink], the acting is bogus ..even the set locations are mundane
Stay away *don*t view this autopsy. The whole crew/cast missed the *autopsy* on this piece of [junk], or they all *had* an autopsy while making the film. Don't waste your money
