Storyline

On the day after his fortieth birthday, the family man and computer analyst George Grieves goes to the Mt. Abaddon Hospital for a routine procedure of colonoscopy with Dr. Sharazi. Along his birthday party, his friends and family tell many cases of medical errors, and George is worried about. After the surgery, George finds that his surgery had complications because of a homonymous patient, and he had received a thoracoscopic sympathectomy instead. While interned, George discloses bizarre and dark secrets about the East Wing of the hospital while his wife and family have to take a decision about his fate. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

"Iatrogenic illness" is a real term and it does happen, though the statistics quoted in the film and therefore the conclusions drawn from those numbers are questionable. See more »

When Mandingo is sitting on top of George you can clearly tell that he has an undershirt under his button down. When he opens the buttons of his shirt, there is nothing underneath. See more »

Quotes

Mandingo: You ready for a little lesson? To be set free? For a dose of reality? First: the lesson. Do you know who I am? I told you my name, bitch. You forget that? I know you ain't forget that! Come on, you caucasian motherfucker! Say it while you still got a pair.
George Grieves: [through his breathing tube] Mandingo.
Mandingo: That's right. That's my name. But do you know who I am?

Not bad for his first film.
19 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to rate this as a bad film, and I can't see why people would. Don't expect a horror when watching this, it clearly reflects psychological thriller. The story will keep you wondering until the end on what exactly is happening in this film, and when the end does come the concept is acceptable but the events that took place during the ending seemed a little odd.

Let's also bear in mind that this is Tony Krantz first film as Director, and if you ask me he pulled it off well, the direction and shots where well laid out, the editing had some creative transitions between flashbacks, and the story was quite original in a day of cheesy slasher flicks. All in all the film was entertaining and filled out a night pleasantly

If your into Psychological thrillers *** Dave Recommends ***
