I love Visiting Hours - good spooky movie! I don't recall seeing Bad Dreams but looking forward to seeing it soon!
Visiting Hours (1982) - Creepy Underrated Horror Thriller
Michael Ironside is a great mad man killer in this one!
This is a movie I seen as a teen that gave me the creeps - and I think of this film every time I go to a hospital *shivers*.
The movie is a thriller and has some slasher type qualities to it. Most people do not identify this film as a slasher film I guess because it did not have 10 sequels after the first.
If you have a love for horror/thrillers then you may like Visiting Hours. The movie seems to be underground these days and should be brought back into the "must see horror arena". It is quite chilling and will leave you on the edge of your seat.
I have to agree with other reviews I've read on Visiting Hours that maybe the reason this film is so underrated is because Bill Shatner is in the film. William has played other movie and TV roles quite well but most people only see him as Kirk and cannot shake that image - he's been wrongfully stereotyped. Shatner's role in this film was good! Do not let your love or dislike of William Shatner keep you from watching and, maybe, enjoying this film.
