Storyline

As her friend suffers from a violent appendicitis attack, Ellen takes her to a London hospital in the dead of night. Despite the night nurse's reticence, her friend is taken into care. Two surgeons are on call this night and one of them performs the operation. But Ellen's relief is short-lived for, while leaving the hospital, she surprises an alarming conversation about what the hospital's real activities are. Feeling threatened, she takes refuge in the room of a patient and to her horror she realizes the man is dead! Worse, he has just been operated on by one of the two surgeons on duty. Obviously one of them is a manic killer but which one? Written by Daniel Collin

The Hospital From Heck
10 January 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Gripping entry. Suspense is on high throughout as Darnell's character appears to have entered the hospital from heck. Just what's going on since the reception nurse (Hitchcock) seems more interested in red tape than helping Darnell's seriously ill friend. Things get worse when Darnell witnesses a murder in one of the rooms, at least she thinks she does. But neither of the two doctors on call appear to believe her. She's beginning to panic: is this a hospital or a loony bin. Still, she should have known something was up the moment she walked in—this has to be the darkest hospital since noir was invented. The entry should have been titled "Dark Corridors". Will she get out alive. Stay tuned.
