Storyline

A patient in an hospital dies under mysterious circumstances. The attending doctor Fank Holt gets under suspect - he'd been fired already from his last position due to mispractice. For his defence he investigates with help of doctor Anna Lang. Soon they find out that half of their colleagues were betting on the patient's diagnosises - was someone trying to increase his chances? But when Frank's friend, dissector Mary Connor, becomes deadly sick, he suspects there's even more to it. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Suspense and Horror in a medical setting
22 July 2002 | by (America) – See all my reviews

Modern automated medical equipment is killing patients all by itself for some reason. Who or what is behind it? Packaged like sci-fi, but it's actually a contemporary crime thriller, the type that keeps you busy trying to figure out what's really going on and who's behind it and why. Not a teen slasher movie, but a thoughtful movie watchable by adults. The most terrifying scenes don't even involve blood. Rent it if you can find it, you won't be bored.
