Who isn't afraid of hospitals? This fear is part of the reason why this thriller is so effective; the others are skillful plotting
in the Robin Cook novel the film was based on and a good cast, headed by Genevieve Bujold as an ambitious young surgeon who uncovers
something very sinister at "Bosion Memorial" hospital and is determined to solve the mystery. There was a much more recent adaptation
of the story made as a TV mini-series, but it's hard to equal the original. However, the sinister plot seems, possibly, less unlikely--more credible--than it did in the late 1970's.
