The Autopsy of Jane Doe (Horror, Mystery, Thriller)
Directed by: André Øvredal
Written by: Ian Goldberg, Richard Naing
Running Time: 86 Minutes
I know this is a horror story, it’s scary and full of surprises. Regardless, it’s a must-watch! Here’s the catch, one day a body was found in a basement. Not knowing who it is, it was classified as a Jane Doe. It looked like an ordinary case, but apparently not. The body looked intact and in prime condition, so the coroners didn’t think much about it. But the more they investigated, the more complex it became. More and more bizarre occurrences appeared, then the bell rang.
Trust me when I said it’s not that kind of cheesy horror that doesn’t have a legit storyline and crappy make-up and costumes. It’s more of a suspense horror than in-your-face horror, but nonetheless, it’s a good creepy movie. And who doesn’t like a good horror movie?

It is yet again one of Captain Jack Sparrow’s (Johnny Depp) thrilling adventures. It is really unfortunate for him to stumble on his old nemesis, Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), who died long ago, and his ghost still remained because of the desire to seek revenge. Apparently Captain Salazar intended to kill all pirates to conquer the sea, including Captain Jack Sparrow—especially Captain Jack Sparrow. No need to ponder much about how the reunion came to be, you just need to watch the movie while it’s still on the cinemas.
There are rumors that this might be the last of the series. I have mixed feelings about this, how about you? To continue the series or not continue the series, that is the question?
So this is top five movies on my watch list this month, I hope you can find a movie or two to your liking. Write to you soon!
