While receiving a routine check-up, a woman finds herself stranded on the hospital's eighth floor, while someone dressed as a doctor is intent on her never leaving, even if it means killing any staff member who comes into contact with her.
While trying to understand a frightening reoccurring nightmare, a pledge is coaxed into breaking into her father's department store by her sorority sisters, where a deranged killer targets the girls and their boyfriends.
Divorcee Susan Jeremy goes to a local Los Angeles county hospital for a routine exam and finds herself stranded there while a maniac, dressed in a doctor's surgical mask and clothing, goes around killing all the staff are associated with her. Could it possibly be the psycho Harold, who killed a friend of Susan's on Valentine's Day 19 years earlier?Written by
According to the interview with director Boaz Davidson on the Region 1 Shout! Factory DVD/Blu-ray release, the set was crowded on the day star Barbi Benton's nude scene was shot. See more »
In the UK, the BBFC heavily cut this in 1981 in order to secure an 'X' certificate. When released in 1983 on VHS in the UK on the Rank Video label under the title 'X-Ray', the same cut release was used with a VHS PAL running time of 77 minutes (equivalent to 80mins theatrical). However, in the US it was released uncut on VHS by MGM/UA Home Video in 1983, under the title Hospital Massacre and runs 89 minutes. See more »
Of all the B horror films out there, this one was actually watchable.
Barbi Benton goes to the local hospital to recieve her check up results to turn in to her new insurance provider. Little does she know a pyshcotic killer has switched her test results to keep her pinned inside the hospital.
There, the doctors themselves seem evil and the whole hospital itself is pretty creepy. Slicing and dicing soon occurs and Barbi must fight to stay alive.
The death scenes are pretty cool. Though I thought the scene where he smothers a nurse with a sheet was kind of bizzare, the way he came out holding it running down the hallway.
