A young woman has a fear of hospitals due some terrible thing she did when she was younger. She still has terrible nightmares about being in a hospital. Now she is faced with a relationship that is developing to the next stage when the two are in an auto accident. He is taken by an ambulance to a hospital. She is not allowed to ride with him and they do not tell her which hospital. She doesn't realize the omission until after she takes a cab to the closest hospital. She then meets the driver of the other vehicle. He tells a similar story. Together they try and find her partner and his sister. Their search of all of the hospitals turns up nothing.

Meanwhile her boyfriend is in a strange hospital and the staff are the ones from her nightmares. He realizes things are not right and tries to learn more and get out of the hospital despite the warnings from others in his ward. He witnesses strange and terrifying things. But as he tries to get out his girlfriend is following unorthodox methods and learns about an old hospital that burned down before she was born. She is told she can find it if she really wants to. The two paths converge as she has to face her fears and their causes before she can locate her boyfriend and help him. The end is unexpected and help explains much of the strangeness in the earlier parts of the film.

This is a film you have to stick with. At first I though it was very poorly written. Take the accident for instance. There are no police. There is no exchange of information. The participants just walk away and leave their vehicles behind. But this and many other strange things will make sense if you watch the whole movie. But you will have to put the bits together. There are no replays of scenes from different angles like in The Sixth Sense or Hide And Seek. But if you do stick with it you will discover what the film is really all about and it really works quite well. But it is not what you would really expect from the trailer. I personally think it winds up being better that they trailer lets on. Check it out.

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.

Compared to many of the most recent "horror" films, ROOM 6 seems to be a classic, although it has its many flaws. Nonetheless, it has a spooky mood a'la KINGDOM HOSPITAL and its performers can actually act, for a change.

Christine Taylor fills the role of scream queen nicely, playing a young woman with an unusual phobia of hospitals. Seems like something terrible happened when she was twelve. That presents a problem when her hunky fiancee is injured in an automobile accident and is carted off via ambulance to St. Rosemary's Hospital. Problem is, Taylor can't find her beau and she joins fellow crash victim Jerry O'Connell, whose sister vanished too.

Shane Brolly (UNDERWORLD) plays the boyfriend, who is pretty stupid in the long run. He never seems to notice the unusual hospital personnel, doesn't ask where his girlfriend is, doesn't act like he's concerned about the weird hospital..until it's too late.

Ghostly happenings and some unusual camera techniques help the atmosphere, and for a low budget flick, ROOM 6 is worth a look.

This Anchor Bay direct to video flick has a terrific premise about a man
who is in an automobile accident and is taken to a hospital that has
long been closed. His girlfriend tries to find him. The suspense is
excellent. Then, once the truth is revealed, the movie slows and the
effects are largely overdone and cheap, with a lot of ambiguity as to
just what happened. It would have been much better if there were no
ghosts and the story had a logical conclusion. Still, it will give the
viewer a few good moments. I guess you could do worse.

This movie has a good plot but that's where it ends,this type of movie where one is in a different place....then....etc..(I am not going to spoil a spoiled movie) I do like the fact that they show what the little girl did was wrong. (euthanasia is wrong). other than that, the hospital is never explained, are they a cult ? vampires? both? not enough scares, there is a part where the nurses get naked and drink blood. (that's the highlight of the movie,except the blood)

Like most of you who have seen this 2006 horror film I checked it out because the trailer for it was popping up on a lot of other DVDs that I was watching. The implication was that there is a room in this particular hospital where the doctors and nurses do evil, wicked, bad and nasty things to patients. How that is the just the ground floor for this tottering Jenga of a horror film. Our heroine is Amy (Christine Taylor), who not only has nightmares about hospitals, she is having nightmares about the hospital in this movies. When she is not asleep and having nightmares Amy is a schoolteacher with one young student who makes weird comments and a tendency to look at people and suddenly see them as demons. Then Amy and her boyfriend Nick (Shane Brolly) are in an accident. A crowd stands and stares but offers no help and then an ambulance shows up to take Nick to the hospital. The problem is that when Amy tries to find Nick, he is in none of the hospitals in town. No, poor Nick is in the hospital that Amy has been seeing in her nightmares.

"Room 6" is one of those horror movies where they seem to be throwing in everything but the kitchen sink, and then that hits you smack in the head too. You have Nick in the hospital from hell, which could be enough to sustain a horror movie plot, but Amy is seeing things and doubting her sanity. Not only that, but she has a deep dark secret in her past, and there is a back story about St. Rosemary's Hospital, which burnt down many years ago. There is a little girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) with a touch of the supernatural, naked nurses finding fun things to do with blood, and Jerry O'Connell in the role of the only person who believes anything that Amy is saying but who is clearly too good to be true. There was so much going on in this movie as the script by Mark A. Altman and director Michael Hurst (the team that brought us "House of the Dead" and "House of the Dead 2: Dead Aim") kept pouring it on, that it was not until the second appearance of the taxi driver (Billy Gardell) that I finally started to get a handle on what was really happening.

You might enjoy "Room 6" more the second time through once you know how to "read" it properly. You might not agree with the point of the story once you know what it is, but it does offer an explanation as to how all of the seemingly disparate elements in this film fit together, especially for people weaned on "The Twilight Zone." On balance, I liked the scenes with Nick in the hospital more than those of Amy trying to find Nick, largely because every time she saw another demon it seemed more like a distraction that another piece of the puzzle. The film does have a nice look, thanks to cinematographer Raymond Stella, who was the camera operator on "Halloween" and 59 episodes of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer." For horror buffs there is a cameo by Kane Hodder (a.k.a. Jason), and the boiler room location used is the same one Wes Craven used for Freddy Krueger in "A Nightmare on Elm Street." For DVD extras there is the trailer for "Room 6" and some other Anchor Bay releases, a 41-minute featurette "Hospital From Hell," a decent enough commentary track from Hurst and Altman, and if you pop the disc in your DVD-rom drive you can read the film's screenplay.

There are so few good horror movies these days..this is a little gem in the dust. An interesting story with a twist...
An accident that leads to a young womans boyfriend being brought by ambulance to a hospital that is not supposed to exsist. Scary without the gore. I work in a movie store and I recommend this movie quite often and those who have seen it agree that it is very good.
I don't buy alot of movies but I had to have this one for my collection.

***Spoiler Alert***
A young schoolteacher with a serious fear of hospitals must face her worst fears when her boyfriend is injured in a car accident and spirited away to a nightmarish medical center where demons don medical scrubs and nefarious nurses bathe in the blood of their suffering patients. Amy's (Christine Taylor) boyfriend has just been involved in a major car accident, but when Amy receives word that her boyfriend has been taken to a hospital that no longer exists, she determines to face her fears and bring her boyfriend back home no matter what horrors await her. Accompanied by a concerned stranger (Jerry O' Connell) who remains steadfast in his determination to solve the mystery of St. Rosemary's, Amy is forced to enter a hallucinatory world of soul-shredding terror where nothing is as it seems and unspeakable horrors lie down every dark and lonely hallway.

VINE VOICEon June 18, 2006
Room 6 happens to be the worst film in the horror genre. I have seen many half attempts but they all somehow seem to be better directed than Room 6. The movie is predictable, boring , not funny , full of goofs and has the worst climax ever. I thought before writing a review for it because it's not fun to write reviews for such meaningless BS filled dramas. The acting was below par,there was no direction and one couldn't sit thru the film if one tried.

Do not watch. Just close this window.

Watch Hostel.

My wife and I watched this movie last night. This is very low budget but it has a good storey line. The acting is not the greatest but it keeps you interested. I love a good horror movie and this works pretty good for me. It is slow paced but interesting. I liked it good enough that I am going to put it in my movie library. All in all a good B movie thats enjoyable . good to lay back and break out the popcorn and cokes and have a good time.
