A woodsman is up to no good foraging through the grounds of his backyard forest. He shows up at the local hospital with an axe casually stuck in his head, and his face not looking too good either. He is placed under the care of handsome Dr. Dox and homely Nurse Patsy. The woodsman expresses his attraction to Patsy by biting her on the arm, inciting a slowly-spreading zombie contagion in the hospital. In true horror film fashion, Patsy's human to monster transformation comes with a symbolic side effect. Once a perennial black sheep among the cliquish nurses and invisible to the Casanova Dr. Dox, Patsy's makeover includes a severe attitude change that turns her into the hospital sexpot.Written by
By the title alone I knew I had to go see it. It played here in Winnipeg at NSI film exchange March 2004.
Basically very well done film especially because it was shot with the intent for it to be silent than all the sound and dialog was added well after the fact in post. This is amazing as I only noticed one or two places where the dialog seemed to be out of sync slightly. it has an interesting acting style throughout due to the fact it was suppose to be silent, a lot of physical expression of emotions and words. It is shot well on black and white, the B$W really builds into the character of the film.
Overall I would definitely recommend it. I can't wait to purchase a copy.
