Storyline

In a stormy night, the evil serial-killer Jonathan Chambers is executed in the electric chair. The arrogant coroner Doctor Hitchens brings the corpse in an ambulance to a hospital for the autopsy escorted by the County Sheriff Berger that arrested Chambers. Meanwhile the outcast high-school student Sara Wexler tries to commit suicide on the road and is hit by the Sheriff Berger's car. While bringing Sara in the same ambulance that is transporting the body of Chambers to the hospital, the teenager sees the dead coming back to life. In the hospital, Sara shares the room with the stabbed teenager Walter that coincidentally is her schoolmate, and she asks him to help her to leave the hospital. She tells what she saw, but Walter in principle believe Sara is nuts. However, when he sees blood on the corridor, he helps Sara to escape from their room. However, they find that all exits are locked and they are trapped in the hospital while the psychopath is slaughtering the patients and staff ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Pretty much meh slasher, nothing too exciting
27 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just saw Heartstopper and I can't say I was particularly impressed, though I have seen worse. The plot is a standard Shocker type affair with a recently electrocuted heart ripping serial killer wanting to do a bit of soul transference. Its not new but its an OK peg to hang the predictable happenings on and the gore is fairly cool at times, plenty of hearts ripped out, blood splatter and whatnot, but there's only one particularly memorable moment of grue. The potential is definitely there, but this is seriously lacking in tension and scares. The killer, gamely played by James Brinkley, talks a lot and his cheesy prattle is kinda funny, but only in a very cheesy, please be quiet you're supposed to be a menacing killer not a daft satanic chatterbox kinda way. The first half hour or so is quite decent, with Robert Englund playing a rare good guy, all chatty and good natured and the killers first couple of appearances are kinda satisfying. But sadly Englund isn't one of the heroes and the two heroes are pretty lame. The girl is OK and certainly nice to look at but I found her companion irritating and neither of them get good lines. Also, the nurse that they hook up with is a total drag which is quite tedious. The writing is generally uninspired, often to the point of amusing badness, and the direction, by special effects wizard Bob Keen is perfunctory. Its just about watchable on account of its fast pace, grue and hospital setting (hospitals always make good horror locations) but ultimately is little more than a standard timewaster without likable enough characters or an interesting enough plot to work much. It certainly isn't the worst slasher out there and is a heck of a lot better than many of the recent straight to video horror outings but will appeal I suspect mostly to boozed up genre completists.
