Amy Roberts (Christine Taylor) has a fear of hospitals and nightmares of being awake for surgery. Her boyfriend Nick (Shane Brolly) tries to propose but Amy is in a rush to get to school. Her student Melissa Norman (Chloë Grace Moretz) also has creepy dreams, but according to Melissa, she's not strong enough to help. She and Nick get into a car accident with another driver Lucas (Jerry O'Connell). The paramedics take Nick to the hospital but doesn't tell her where. She can't seem to find Nick anywhere. Lucas can't find his sister either when other paramedics take her to the mysterious St. Rosemary's hospital.
It's a lot of shrill screaming from Christine Taylor. There are a couple of good interesting actors like Mary Pat Gleason, but there are too many amateurs in this. That's what happens when you give strippers actual lines to read. Quite frankly, Shane Brolly isn't good enough to lead his part of the movie. Jerry O'Connell is too standoffish. He is too obvious and the twist is telegraphed.
The biggest problem is that this production just doesn't have the money behind it. It is a big ambitious horror done on the cheap. The monster makeup isn't that good. It looks even worst in the daylight. I can almost see the bigger, more grander movie that the script alludes to. This movie just doesn't look well put together.
