I don’t want to overstate this, but Morgan is a horror movie that definitely has some science involved in its plot.
Given that, it seemed natural this week to talk about it with someone who has a science background. For that, I turned to Dr. Hunter Stone, a resident physician at Parkland Hospital who is more than happy to indulge my curiosities and to point out how science in the real world works differently than in this movie.
We also talk a good deal about the movie’s other main theme, hubris.
