In what appears to be another nod towards William Hope's "Gorman" from Aliens (1986), in Dark Floors, just as in Aliens, both of his characters are knocked unconscious by fire extinguishers. See more »
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.

The Dark Floors is in the genre of Silent Hill, The Botched, and even for a certain extent The Langoliers (Made for TV).
Story is very similar to the above mentioned movies except here it has no objective and to top it up we have got a boring acting and very slow screen play.
Story goes like this-A group of people locked up in a hospital, are getting attacked by the mysterious creatures/spirits; an autistic child among the group seems to have some connection to this.
The characters are terribly one dimensional and garners no sympathy among viewers on their survival.
There is nothing positive about Dark Floors except it finishes in less than 90 minutes(even then its too dragging and boring for its 80 odd minutes) If you want to watch some better movies in this genre then try The Botched(at least it is silly) or even Silent Hill(has got better screenplay and acting) but not this Mess of a Movie Avoid Dark Floors
