Room 6

Room 6 is a mess.  Seriously, like a 35 car pile up on the highway kind of mess that you just can’t look away from even though you really, really, really want to.

The story here involves a woman (Christine Taylor) who has a fear of hospitals.  She and her fiance get into a wreck (of course).  She’s fine, he’s not and he gets whisked away in an ambulance before she knows what’s happened.  No one will tell her what hospital he’s at and it takes the teaming up of herself and the other driver involved in the crash,to finally find out he’s been taken to St. Rosemary’s…..which seems to not actually exist.  Meanwhile, the fiance is stuck in the non-existent hospital with a group of nurses who like to get naked and frolick whilst drinking blood.  Because yeah, of course.  It’s odd but Mr. Fiance doesn’t really seem to mind too much (*sighs*  Men…). Unfortunately things are about to take a turn for the worst for him.  So the question here is can Christine Taylor overcome her fear of hospitals in time to save her love??

Oh, honey. You’re day is only going to go downhill from here…..

The ending is supposed to be a twist but ultimately the entire movie is so confusing that I didn’t fully realize the concept of the end until I watched the behind the scenes interviews.  There’s lots of monsters and scary demon people and yes, the requisite creepy little girl.  Basically, all of the most basic horror movie concepts were taken and turned into horror mish mash.

Anyone else seen this?  Was I just having an off day and it really wasn’t this horrible?  Thoughts?

  1. Make believe hospital with slutty, blood-sucking nurses and someone with a clinical fear of hospitals? I’m not seeing how this can fail to be awesome.

  2. ha! I think you’re right, friend : ) The way I remember this is = this movie sucked it big time. AND, to make it even worse, it had Jerry O’Connell in it : ( this thing was no good.

  3. I have not seen it, but I haven’t heard anything good about it either. IIRC, this got a major release in theaters, which kinda makes me mad because it’s the overhype and subsequent failure of this kind of crap which makes decent horror movies end up going straight to video.

    • Overhyped, I imagine, because of Christine Taylor and Jerry O’Connell. Although, the film world is changing so much at this point that a direct to video release isn’t necessarily a bad thing (not like it used to be). I hardly ever go to the cinema and I don’t have cable.

  4. I haven’t seen it, but I’ve read that I should avoid it by a lot of people. So I don’t think you’re alone. I just can’t stop laughing at the picture of Christine Taylor. I think that agonizing look on her face is her realization at how her career turned out.

  5. I have not seen it yet. Though now that I have seen your review, I plan to watch just for the heck of it 😛 (There are times when I get in the mood to watch crappy movies :P)

  6. Is this “Human Centipede” bad??? 😉

    • Oooohhhh, good question! I actually avoided the heck out of “Human Centipede” so I can’t answer. I’m going to say bad in an entirely different way though. 😉

  7. Oh you have to watch it – it will burn your brain but it reaches a level of disturbing unlike any other! My hubs and I watched it a while back because some friends of ours couldn’t stop talking about it. It was wretched but we still bring it up regularly. It’s that kind of all the wall bad that sticks with you. 😉

  8. How many 35 car pile ups do you see on average?
    Thanks for saving me from seeing room 6, then room 7 and 8 ;D

  9. Ah, so you cross the road how I live life. 🙂

And.........Action!
