Trivia

As the nurse bandages the security guard's ear, John says, "yeah, why don't we make a campfire and sing songs while we're at it."

This is taken from another movie William Hope starred in, Aliens (1986), although it was Paul Reiser who spoke it. See more »

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 new take on Silent Hill...
28 March 2009 | by SeptumSinSee all my reviews

It has been a while since I've rated a movie and Dark Floors isn't exactly the best movie to make my comeback on.

Dark Floors starts as a concerned father tries to get his daughters medical problems diagnosed. He isn't satisfied with them not curing her within the first day of testing so he decides to take her out of the hospital w/o their knowing. Unfortunately the elevator takes them to a strange evil hospital where they must try and survive.

Man this does have some coolness as it really reminds me of another version of Silent Hill where we see the real world and the twisted dream world. The story is fairly interesting at first but unfortunately it gets boring quickly as the sit for periods and do pretty much nothing...I mean really there is a part where they spend nearly five minutes attacking a wall. The movie is part interesting but it can be worse as far as horror movies go.

If you have the time and attention this is an fair watch...
