Did You Know?

Trivia

The models used in the film were inspired by Dr. Gunther von Hagens popular exhibition "Body Works" in which real cadavers are plasticized after being dissected. One character even mentions this process when we see the hall for the first time at the beginning of the film, but no real cadavers were used as the director thought it "too macabre". The models were created by a team headed by Joachim Grüninger and Birger Laube. The models were so accurate and detailed that the film's medical advisers thought they could be used as actual teaching specimens. See more »

Goofs

When Paula goes to the police to report the AAA, she cannot provide David's last name. Right in the previous scene with Hein at the library, he mentions that "she should stop investigating the death of her friend, David Rolof". See more »

A cut above the average horror flick.
5 April 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Anatomy" tells of an attractive young female medical student who attends the University of Heidelberg where she discovers an ancient secret society of doctors who practice human vivisection. The film is an artful shoot with great anatomical props and a story which is a little more intelligent than typical American horror flicks where hockey masked hulks go around butchering teenagers. The video release I watched was also very well dubbed. Overall a cut above your average horror flick and an mildly thrilling and suspenseful watch for most. The last two words of the film are particularly telling.
