A law student takes a job as the night-watchman in a morgue, thinking that he will have much time to study, with his biggest problem being his paranoia in this scary setting. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose and the student ends up getting mixed up with one of the murders, becoming a suspect.Written by
The opening scene where a prostitute gets violently murdered was not part of Ole Bornedal's original cut, presumably being added by Miramax during the post-production phase. The scene only includes Anais Evans, who does not appear in the rest of the film, and as such may have been filmed as late as 1997, long after principal photography had wrapped. See more »

I hate it all Martin. I'm so fucking bored. Me and her fucking girls and her fucking dinner parties. Cozy life scenario all laid out for us like this thick drowning carpet, I fucking hate it Martin. I can't help it but I fucking hate it.

The original cut of the film was just about 2 1/2 hours and included a different score and different opening sequence which was just an extended version of the two couples having dinner together followed by an extended scene at the local pub. The entire subplot of discussion of marriage between Lauren Graham and Josh Brolin's characters was cut, including a sequence at the end where they are married at a double wedding alongside Patricia Arquette and Ewan McGregor's characters. This version also included an extended restaurant scene with Joyce and more contact between her and Martin throughout the film, including a much more graphic death sequence in Joyce's apartment.

Ewan McGregor plays a law student who takes a job as a night watchman at a morgue. He begins to discover clues that implicate him as the suspect of a serial of murders.
The setting in this movie was really perfect, i really liked it , it had great atmosphere from start to end and worked really well with the the creepy scenes, they also added some humour into this movie, which i really liked.
The deaths were not gory or bloody as this is more of a drama then your normal slasher movies, (it nothing like Scream or Friday 13th movies at all).
The acting from the whole cast was outstanding, A really good movie
