Goofs

Patients are often sedated for both CT scans and MRI, I am a previous RN who worked in radiology and I was responsible for either conscious sedation (primarily of children) or assisting the nurse anesthetist when the patient received general anesthesia. CT scan show structural abnormalities, MRIs do the same but are much more sensitive and are often used in seizure patients, patients with cancer, etc. When they are sedated, they are strapped in for safety.

A Bizarre and Weird Trip to a Disturbed Mind
17 October 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While in the hospital for a tomography of the brain of his autistic daughter Sarah (Skye Bennett), Ben (Noah Huntley) becomes upset when there is a power failure. He decides to leave the hospital with Sarah, while the nurse Emily (Dominique McElligott) tries to convince him to leave Sarah for further treatment. They get the elevator with three other passengers, and suddenly the elevator stops; when the door opens, people has vanished from the hospital, the environment is creepy and they are chased by devilish monsters. They find that they are trapped in the hospital, and the creatures seem to be hunting Sarah.

"Dark Floors" is a bizarre and weird trip to a disturbed mind of an autistic girl. The dark story is intriguing and has a promising beginning, but the conclusion is disappointing. The performance of Skye Bennett, the eerie atmosphere and the special effects are the plus of this movie; Emily is a nice character well performed by Dominique McElligott; however, it is impossible to feel any empathy for the lead and important character performed by Noah Huntley. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Alma Diabólica" ("Devilish Soul")
