As her friend suffers from a violent appendicitis attack, Ellen takes her to a London hospital in the dead of night. Despite the night nurse's reticence, her friend is taken into care. Two surgeons are on call this night and one of them performs the operation. But Ellen's relief is short-lived for, while leaving the hospital, she surprises an alarming conversation about what the hospital's real activities are. Feeling threatened, she takes refuge in the room of a patient and to her horror she realizes the man is dead! Worse, he has just been operated on by one of the two surgeons on duty. Obviously one of them is a manic killer but which one? Written by
The overall premise is that an American tourist brings a sick friend to a British hospital in the middle-of-the-night where she witnesses something that she cannot prove to the point that makes her seem delusional.
This is an interesting 30 minute film with terrific cast and performances with a limited budget. Fast moving to say the least, the protagonist really gets you into this murder-mystery. Giving the amount of action and twists involved in this short, well done indeed. Only real groan comes in the next-to-last scene when a doctor's action are too implausible to get through a reasonable 'suspension of disbelief.'
