(This review may contain spoilers).
I bought this film a while ago and recently watched it again with one of my friends.
Hospitals can often be scary places. In fact, they trigger all kinds of emotions. There’s not much sadder than children who are so ill, they can’t be with their families.
There was a lot of emotion in this film. In a way, I felt it was focused as much on the characters as on the storyline.
There were a few jumpy moments, but the film did kind of lose some of its scare factor when the villain was shown properly. The mystery is always the best part.
The setting of the hospital was used to quite good effect. At times, it was creepy – while at others, it was merely a place for sick kids to be as comfortable as possible.
The actors did quite a good job, though I felt Helen’s character was particularly harsh with Maggie. I particularly liked the ending, but it was quite sad.
There are some moments of gore in this, but nothing really major. I would recommend this film – it’s one I have watched several times now.
