It's just another night at the morgue for a father and son team of coroners, until an unidentified, highly unusual corpse comes in.

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.

The latest from Trollhunter director Andre Ovredal is a scarily unpredictable, supernatural shocker that never lets up.
