Not as bad as I had thought, but that's not saying much
on December 3, 2006
Of all the recent direct to DVD horror movies that Anchor Bay has been churning out lately, it's safe to say that Room 6 is one of the best. Sadly though, that's not really saying a whole lot: Room 6 features many of the cliche' story conventions and predictable twists, and arguably one of the dumbest characters in a recent horror movie that I've seen lately in Shane Brolly (Underworld: Evolution) who after a car accident is taken to a mysterious hospital where the patients don't come back. Christine "Mrs. Ben Stiller" Taylor stars as his wife, who along with another victim of the accident (Jerry O'Connell) looks to find out just what's going on. The plot hardly makes sense, but Taylor, Brolly, and O'Connell are decent enough in a film that is far undeserving to feature any of them in it. Gore effects are good and Ellie Cornell (all grown up from the later Halloween films) is here, as are some blood drinking lesbian nurses (always a plus in my book), so Room 6 isn't as bad as it could have been. It's worth a look for horror afficiondos, but that's it.
