Hospital Massacre is a 1981 horror film that features Barbi Benton as the leading lady. The film begins with a young Susan Jeremy (Barbi Benton) going to the hospital to have a routine check-up for her teeth. She is left in the waiting room as her mother goes off to talk to the doctor. While waiting, she meets a young boy who is waiting to have his tonsils removed. After a brief conversation, Susan leaves the boy and goes back to the waiting room.

While waiting, she receives a strange phone call from an unknown person who tells her that she must find her way out of the hospital, or else she will never leave. Susan forgets about the phone call and continues to wait. Suddenly, she hears screams coming from the hallway and decides to investigate. She soon realizes that she has walked into a trap and is locked inside the hospital with a crazed killer.

One of the most striking features of Hospital Massacre is its setting. The entire film takes place within the confines of a hospital, lending an eerie atmosphere that heightens the tension.

The killer is a formidable opponent, moving silently through the hospital and striking when least expected. The tension builds steadily throughout the film, culminating in a gripping finale that will leave viewers breathless.

One of the most effective aspects of Hospital Massacre is its use of sound. The score is haunting and atmospheric, perfectly capturing the mood of the film. Sound effects are also used to great effect, with the screech of a surgical drill or the beep of a monitoring machine heightening the tension.

In terms of gore and violence, Hospital Massacre delivers in spades. The film features some truly gruesome death scenes, including one where a character is impaled with a surgical tool. The violence is done realistically, with nothing feeling gratuitous or unnecessary.
