At the end of the movie, Robert takes unconscious Amy out of the hospital. The cardiac monitor shows absence of cardiac electrical activity, i.e. asystole. Asystole is a type of cardiac arrest classified as "non shockable rhythm" and its initial management exclude the use of defibrillation. They should have started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuvers instead. Furthermore, when an electrical shock is delivered, a typical waveform should have appeared in the monitor. See more »
This film, I have to say, was quite impressive. Quite different as well. I thought it would've been a typical horror/thriller movie because of the setting of an "old children's hospital about to closed down", that already gives you a mental image of what you would expect this hospital to look like...dark, spooky, cold. But this film impressed me a lot.
It takes a lot to actually "freak me out" when watching a film as NO film has ever succeeded in scaring me, but this film is quite intense...it's especially good because the film is taking you somewhere, and then suddenly, there is a smart twist, which left me with my mouth wide open! There are also a few bits in the film that actually make you cringe! But I won't spoil that for you.
I'm not a big fan of Calista Flockhart, but I have to say, she was brilliant in this movie.
All in all, if you want to be spooked and want to watch a film with a decent twist in, I advise you to watch this.
