When Dr Matar is locked up in the penitentiary in the bed with the IV, there's a machine nearby measuring something with beeps; presumably his heart-rate, as it speeds up in the scuffle in the next scene. However, the beeping continues, even after he's disconnected himself from everything. See more »
It starts out medical mystery. Standard "Coma" plot here - maverick woman doctor fights with colleagues and discovers something fishy going on.
Next is a detour through subplot melodrama - maverick doctor gets in trouble and starts hanging out with a photojournalist turned med student. Nice work by James Remar here.
Then it lurches over to horror flick but doesn't quite make it. The heart of a good horror flick is a compelling villian. This script practically forgets about its villian until a good way into the film. What we get then is a laughably bad, unchilling parody of a sort of bad guy. He's got no menace, no personality. What good is a forgettable bad guy?
Skip this one unless you must see every bad hospital horror flick ever made.
