Hospital horror...
28 November 2001 | by (Gråsten, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Not the worst of it's kind. The performances are acceptable and the story is a kind of dumb, but... It's not so much of a horror movie, it's more like a thriller.

If you want real Doctor horror, I would recommend Dr. Giggles...
