The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) with Louise Blain

Anna is joined by presenter, producer and podcaster Louise Blain to discuss the supernatural chiller The Autopsy of Jane Doe, the power of rituals, and the creepiest bell sound ever.

In this episode, we’re going to tackle a genuinely terrifying, creepy little film: The Autopsy of Jane Doe. Starring Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox as father-and-son coroners who experience supernatural phenomena while examining the body of an unidentified woman (hence the name Jane Doe) (played by Olwen Kelly). The more they uncover about Jane Doe, the spookier things get.

I’m joined in this episode by producer, presenter and podcaster Louise Blain, host of the Killt Podcast. We talk about the power of rituals, the compact nature of the film, the unmoving but uber-powerful protagonist, how it makes use of sound design and our own morbid curiosity and we pitch about twenty potential sequels and spin-offs to the film.
