When every shift is plagued by spooky occurrances and things that go bump in the night, she begins to believe the stories of one of the child pateints, who insists the hospital is haunted by a dangerous presence emanating from the long abandoned second floor.Written by

This film, I have to say, was quite impressive. Quite different as well. I thought it would've been a typical horror/thriller movie because of the setting of an "old children's hospital about to closed down", that already gives you a mental image of what you would expect this hospital to look like...dark, spooky, cold. But this film impressed me a lot.
It takes a lot to actually "freak me out" when watching a film as NO film has ever succeeded in scaring me, but this film is quite intense...it's especially good because the film is taking you somewhere, and then suddenly, there is a smart twist, which left me with my mouth wide open! There are also a few bits in the film that actually make you cringe! But I won't spoil that for you.
I'm not a big fan of Calista Flockhart, but I have to say, she was brilliant in this movie.
All in all, if you want to be spooked and want to watch a film with a decent twist in, I advise you to watch this.
