Decidedly average, the actors are doing the best they can within the constraints of a weak dialogue and the fact that the young females of the cast are unable to bring their inner arms to meet their bodies (honestly, the amount of scenes of them walking with their arms overly externally rotated was distracting). Robert Patrick is eerily cold, although one wonders if it is him playing the part to perfection or just that he can't act well. There are far too many holes in the plot (what is with the two crazy porters? Why does one of them get to beat the patients to a pulp?) although I did enjoy the scene where the girl eviscerates one of her friends through his chest, starting with the heart. Hint to makers of movies that prominently use human anatomy for its gory effect: Make sure the things you are using are recognisable as body parts. That let the film down. Overall, not great, it felt like someone's university film project.
A true horror move with heaps of action and twists. Well worth watching. Just a warning that it contains course language.
Even with the cool outcome of the mad doctors experiment this is still nothing more than a ho hum lardy da hospital horror. The only point of interest is the exploration of lawlessness that could fill a void after a natural disaster. Otherwise unlikeable uncaring victims results in who cares if they die characters.
An excellant film in the mould of X-ray but improves upon the formula where a group of young people get into an Auto accident and are taken to a sinister hospital where they are killed off one by one by the evil staff and doctor in gory ways. The acting is well done with Robert Patrick shining as the villian in a non cyborg way and the direction sets up a decent premise with chilling horror setups and some decent jump scenes. The violence is quite extreame and horror fans will enjoy the impressive effects and inventiveness of the kills. My only 2 gripes is a strange ending and also the cheap and puzzling fate of one of the victims that writes him out without the fate nor body shown. Fans of X-ray and other hospital horror shall enjoy this the most.
