Horror Hospital (1975)

While it had its moments, this campy English slasher is a whole lot of waiting for a whole lot of nothing. Two teens end up at a a deadly hospital where a corrupt doctor is conducting mind control experiments on the local youths. Death ensues. Fans will enjoy the deathmobile, a few clever quips, and some of the hammy performances, but there is very little originality in this film that hasnt been covered by other genre entries in the past. It also suffers from stereotypical characters, bland dialogue, and a repetitive cat and mouse plot, but what is most annoying is that the attempt at a background story leaves more questions than answers (and not in the fun, abstract way). While it fails on many different levels, it is still a fun if not stupid Slasher that serves as a good enough time killer, just expect the usual conventions and very little logic.

Rating: 5/10.
