Name That Trauma :: Reader Piotr W. on a Hellish Hospital

Hello!

There’s a certain movie I saw back when I was a child (meaning, early ’90s). Now, I keep wondering what this movie was… I’ve been searching through movie databases and reviews for some time now, but – so far – I haven’t found anything that matches my memories.

Here’s what I can remember about this movie:

1. It was in colour and seemed to be something from the at least 70s. As I mentioned, I saw it in early ’90s, so it couldn’t be anything more recent.

2. The plot, I think, concerned a group of mad scientists / doctors performing experiments on humans. One member of this group was a female nurse.

3. At least one of the movie’s heroes was a male teenager / young adult.

4. One particular scene I remember involved a young woman being wheeled on a trolley by the aforementioned nurse. She was being prepared for some sort of experiment or mad science procedure. As she wheeled her, the nurse said to another scientist: “This one is for me,” “You promised this one for me” or something to that effect.

5. In a later scene, the aforementioned male hero entered a dark room and was cornered by small group of people reduced to savagery / zombiehood by the scientists’ experiments. I think that one of these people was the girl seen previously on the trolley.

6. Both the nurse and the trolley girl were Caucasians. The nurse was dark-haired, I think. I think that the girl was a blonde.

Does this ring any bells for anyone?

Best wishes,

Piotr W.

Sorry it took so long to get to this Piotr W.! We got distracted by so many “It’s a horror to know you!” posts (and there’s tons more on the way!)

This NTT sounds like it could be many things but I keep thing it might be “Horror Hospital” due to the crazy zombie patients.

I’m not very confident with that guess though (I don’t remember a nurse) – does anybody else have any ideas? I feel like it’s on the tip of my brain!!!

“Strange Behavior” maybe? It’s killing me!

Maybe “Disturbing Behavior” from 1998?

How about THE DEAD PIT or PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR?

I just thought of another one, HELLHOLE (1985) with Judy Landers, Mary Woronov and Marjoe Gortner.

Hi there! 🙂

It’s definitely not HELLHOLE, CLONUS or HORROR HOSPITAL. I’ve watched all of them (heh, I even own a Horror Hospital DVD) and they’re not it. It’s also not DISTURBING BEHAVIOR – the movie isn’t that recent. I’m not sure about STRANGE BEHAVIOR – all I’ve seen of it is a trailer… Still, I don’t think that’s it, either.

If you have any other guesses, keep them coming, please 🙂

Strange Behavior is a definite possibility….

STRANGE BEHAVIOR doesn’t have any of the scenes Piotr W. described. I was lucky enough to see it in the theatre in the 80’s and I’ve never forgotten it.

Try DEATH WARMED UP. Australian, 1984 I believe.
