Storyline

A patient in an hospital dies under mysterious circumstances. The attending doctor Fank Holt gets under suspect - he'd been fired already from his last position due to mispractice. For his defence he investigates with help of doctor Anna Lang. Soon they find out that half of their colleagues were betting on the patient's diagnosises - was someone trying to increase his chances? But when Frank's friend, dissector Mary Connor, becomes deadly sick, he suspects there's even more to it. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Criminally underrated...
31 March 2002 | by ep.comSee all my reviews

A pity, nobody seems to know this little thriller-masterpiece. Where bigger budgeted movies fail, "Terminal Choice" delivers lots of thrills, shocks and bloody violence. A little seen gem, that deserves being searched for in your local video shop. That anonymous guy beneath is quite right, when he says, you'll never trust hospitals again... it IS that effective ! Good ending,too, not really a twist, but it doesn't end the way one thought it would. Yep, that's Ellen Barkin in an early role...
