Two brothers posing as paramedics kidnap their victims and harvest their organs for the black market. That is until they kidnap a woman they find impossible to kill and it transpires that she has more power over them than they over her…
“It slows down more than an audience might at first expect, and manages to avoid being just the series of grisly murder set-pieces that it first seems to be going the direction of. It actually seems like Bodies tries for a degree of depth, but unfortunately usually comes up very, very short.” Cryptic Rock
“It’s very gory, very twisted, there is a good storyline and the acting isn’t too bad. There is a good twist and it all comes to an abrupt but satisfying ending. If you’re told you can’t ride in the ambulance with your loved ones, would you let your loved one get in the ambulance? Could watch again but not in any hurry to do so.” Nancy W, Letterboxd
“The cost was kept down, from what I can see, by not having a lot of different sets. The movie takes place in almost one location. But trust me, they didn’t scrimp on the actors or the special effects. The gore is absolutely realistic!” Morbidly Realistic
“Based primarily in one location and with only three key characters, Wilson tackles the challenge of the minimalist aspects of the picture well, keeping the script tight and injecting a jaw-dropping backstory at just the right moment. The intensity does wane a touch in the final third, but that does little to diminish what’s a gleefully twisted little indie film.” The Schlock Pit
- The production title was Just Call 911
- Not to be confused with the 1988 comedy Paramedics
