Anatomy – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror (2018) – Day 4

anatomy-2000This 2000 German release is about a medical student (Franka Potente) that gets awarded a place a prestigious med school only to uncover a secret society which is involved in questionable medical practices. Ok thriller with not many thrills. It shares many of the same themes as the 1996 film Extreme Measures starring Gene Hackman and Hugh Grant.

Once the majority of the secrets had been revealed, the film tries too hard to continue the suspense with unnecessary attempts at story depth and additional inconsequential twists. It had potential (and also Potente), but it didn’t show me anything new.

Side Note: A lot like other German films, it features mostly German performers. Not a complaint, just an observation.
