Trivia

In a newspaper, an article states that Heath asks for support against miners, this refers to the Conservative Prime Minister of UK Edward Heath. One of the measures Heath announced on December 13th, 1973 was the '3-Day-Week', which was in operation from 31 December 1973 to 7 March 1974.

This was meant to reduce commercial electricity consumption by moving from a 5-day to 3-day working week and encouraging non-essential businesses to close for 4 days per week. Electricity production was limited due to strike action preventing coal deliveries to power stations and so limiting drain helped prevent total blackouts, although most households and areas across the whole UK did still experience multiple power outages during this period.

The Power is up again!
9 April 2021 | by med-01081See all my reviews

Pleasantly surprised with this one. The acting was good from everyone involved. It had some good jump scares but It could have had many more. It had so much potential that it didnt use which would have made it a lot more scary and tense. I mean its in the pitch black of an old hospital! The stairways the atmosphere etc you would think they would exploit this as much as possible but what they did was still good enough and a lot better than a lot of Hollywood blockbusters that got cinema releases. The tension build up was also good enough but again could have been so much better as the potential was there for it to be great. A decent horror film thats worth a watch.
