Room 6 (2006)

"A young woman's world is turned upside down after a tragic accident steals away her boyfriend. The walls of reality continue to crumble as the troubled woman and a fellow victim try to track down their loved ones at a mysterious hospital which should not exist."

If you haven't seen this yet, don't bother. All you will see is Christine Taylor (who looked quite pretty in "Zoolander" but isn't quite so hot here) running around, seeing demons and screaming for about an hour. Actually that makes the film sound good...

No, this isn't a good movie. The Amy character (Christine Taylor) is one of the most annoying females in a film ever. It's not as if she's screaming non-stop. I could have enjoyed that!

The story is a mess. Apart from the demon hallucinations and one scary ten second hospital scene, I couldn't be bothered to even try to decipher any of it. Something to do with ghosts and guilt as far as I could tell.

Of course with a budget of $1,000,000 everyone in the movie looks quite good. The hospital seems to be staffed by Playboy models (who at one point turn into blood-drinking lesbian vampires for no apparent reason) and Christine Taylor never seems to have a hair out of place in spite of shaking it all over the place every time she screams.

The scene between Amy and her father in "Room 6" is like something out of "Mork and Mindy" with a blacked out studio and everything. All I could think of was "Mork calling Orsen.. come in Orsen..." Oh, we find out here that Amy helped her father to die when she was a little girl by pulling the plug on his life support machine... oh well that helps... not!

The ending is predictable. If you've seen "Dead End" you'll spot it coming a mile away. Remember she's trying to save her boyfriend...?

I'm giving this film 1 out of 10 for the brief lesbian vampire scene. That's all it deserves.
