Deborah Ballin is a controversial middle-aged TV journalist, who is campaigning on air on behalf of a battered woman who murdered her abusive husband, claiming justifiable defence against the so-called victim. But her outspoken views championing women's rights incense one of the studio's cleaning staff, closet homicidal psycho (and misogynist) Colt Hawker whose deep seated despising all all things female occurred from seeing his Mother throwing boiling oil in the face of his abusive Father when he was a small child (and who's M.O. is to photograph victims he stabs as they're dying ). So much so that he decides there and then to shut her up...PERMANENTLY! Managing to beat her home, he soon dispatches her maid Francine, before turning his rage onto her as she come home (greeting her in only wearing her jewellery and make-up). Despite the brutal injuries he lashes out on her, she manages to survive and is rushed off to hospital. But undaunted he catches up to her in hospital and disguised as a florist... he enter the building to continue his mission to finish her off...along with anyone else who gets under his skin.

lee grant stars as an outspoken tv journalist who speaks too much for her
own good! she triggers off the crazy michael ironside who brutally attacks her in her own home then stalks her in the hospital she is admitted to.
william shatner is her boss who tries desperately to help but nothing can stop the madman. he stabs a nurse,kills an old lady by cutting off her oxygen supply & launches a brutal attack on a hooker. he disguises himself as janitors,surgeons & doctors to gain access to the hospital.
i was gripped by the storys fast pace & @ 105 minutes i was never bored!
anchor bays print is crisp & clear with a good soundtrack. i cannot believe no-one has bought this! id describe this as "diagnosis murder" meets "halloween 2" ? buy it,@ £3.99 it was a bargain.
A feminist TV interviewer (Lee Grant) is viciously attacked by a misogynist (Michael Ironside). As she recuperates in hospital he repeatedly tries to kill her.
It has a few traditional slasher-style stalking scenes so it’s often miscategorised as a slasher but it has a proper plot so I’d definitely describe it as a thriller. It’s a respectable Canadian movie with a good cast and a fairly lavish budget. It’s a decent enough film but it suffers from questionable overall logic. Little of it is plausible or makes much sense, but it never quite tips over into outright silliness. The pace was okay but the story was very baggy. It’s very easy to see how they could have tightened it up with less toing and froing with combined sequences to reduce the running time from 105 minutes.
There were one or two minor jumps – it’s not scary but it did manage a few unexpected jolts.
It feels like a very commercial-minded project made for the money rather than for any significant artistic reasons. The film doesn’t feel particularly cynical but I highly doubt anyone involved considered it to be more than a non-embarrassing here today, gone tomorrow money grab.
If the logic wasn’t so consistently fuzzy I would like this more. With the questionable logic I can’t say much for it beyond it was watchable and mildly entertaining.
How did she get her hands on his knife at the climax? Did I miss something as I don’t recall her having the knife while he was chasing her?
Indeed if you know anyone who shouts out halfway through a film that 'this is so slow', then give them this to watch.
The plot centers around Lee Grant, a TV journalist who is a strong feminist and all for women's rights. The cleaner at the studio is a nutjob- serial killer in the guise of the great Michael Ironside. So Ironside decides to bump her off. Only thing is, Grant is a fighter and ends up in hospital- but this is where the fun begins.
Not sure what it is about horror films taking place in hospitals but I absolutely love them, and the case is the same with this film. Shot actually in 1981, the film still feels like a good old 70s horror/thriller. It just satisfies on many levels. Twists and turns and genuine scares.
Over on IMDB this film has something like a 4/10 and a few claim that Ironside is misscast, really? Gosh! I'd like to think I can be a harsh critic especially on horror films but they take the biscuit. Still their the same bunch who claim Dario Argento hasn't made a good film since 1987.
The film also stars the great William Shatner, though why he is here is anyones guess. Check out his side spiltting scene where Grant is stressed as hell in hospital after a murder has taken place. What does Shatner do to reassure her? He gulps down Ice Cream while telling her not to worry. Love it.
Ironside himself is fantastic, and you can tell he was revelling in this role as a psychopathic killer- this guy really has no heart.
The film has a sub story involving beautiful nurse Linda Purl- as Ironside stops at nothing to get his victims.
Visiting Hours is well worth checking out- they don't make them like this anymore.
