The Horror Pod Class Episode 143: Anatomy (2000)


Tyler: Hey everybody this is Tyler Unsell and…

Orrin:  This is Orrin Grey

Tyler: And Welcome to The Horror Pod Class

Tyler: Every two weeks Orrin and I get to gather to discuss how our featured horror movie might be used in the classroom.tonight we visit Bodies The Exhibition not in a museum but rather at a messed up medical school in Heideblberg as we dissect the 2000 movie Anatomy. 

What are we watching?

Orrin: Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

Tyler:  Wyrmwood Apocalypse:  Also new Blu of Lake Mungo WITH ALL KINDS OF COOL SHIT FROM SECOND SIGHT.  Also Covering Overlook in New Orleans. It will be a hoot.

Essential Question: Does Anatomy address the moral and ethical concerns surrounding illegal experimentation. 

A cute med student starts a summer course at Heidelberg University. David’s on her dissection table. She met him the day before on the train. Something’s wrong.
