While receiving a routine check-up, a woman finds herself stranded on the hospital's eighth floor, while someone dressed as a doctor is intent on her never leaving, even if it means killing any staff member who comes into contact with her.
J.S. Cardone claims that the story was inspired by H.P. Lovecraft due to elements of dreams vs. reality, though few, if any, actual Lovecraft tropes anywhere in the film See more »
Have you ever had a nightmare that was so real that you thought it was actually happening?

The film was classified in the UK as a video nasty and consequently was unavailable for many years. The initial video release was edited by 14 secs to shorten a pitchfork murder though the Vipco DVD release was passed uncut by the BBFC in 2001. See more »
Very few of the original 'video-nasties' were actually good. This one was definitely not one of the good ones. My biggest disappointment came when I realised that the monster that is shown on the DVD menu only properly shows up in the last minute of the film. So DVD menus have ruined another film for me. Trailers ruin films too sometimes. Like Spiders (2000) told me the ending in the trailer. I hate that. Anyway if you manage to not see the monster before you watch the film then this may be a little better for you. The story bumbles along telling us of nightmares, isolation and killing. It was actually quite gory even though there were only five people to kill off. What also surprised me was that there was actually a bit of atmosphere - just not enough. It was a film of not enough; they just needed more of everything to make it average.
