Detective Story wannabe
27 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Emergency Hospital (1956)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A Detective Story rip off from Bel Air Productions. The film shows a short period inside an emergency room where doctors have to deal with all sorts of weirdos. I mentioned Bel Air Productions because, according to the IMDb, they made a total of thirty-two movies and this is the forth one I've seen. This film, The Black Sleep, Voodoo Island and Pharaoh's Curse all take interesting set ups and then crash them into the ground for a hardcore death. All four are overly talky and go no where, which is a shame because with a better production some of them could have been good. This film only runs 62-minutes but it runs out of gas early on, although there are some camp moments that might keep some interested. There's all sorts of horrible acting that makes the casts of Ed Wood movies seem Oscar worthy.
