Marchand capably builds suspense, thanks to a twisty script and nervy performances by Lucas and Quinton.
So skillful at sustaining a chilly antiseptic atmosphere in which death stalks every gleaming corridor that it comes as a sharp disappointment to find its hygienic imagery wasted on a clunking cat-and-mouse game.
The melodrama acts as an anaesthetic, as it's hard to stay awake while it operates merely as a gruesome style over substance film.
A sleek and cool thriller that never quite boils over into all-out suspense, which feels enticing but also a bit dull and overlong.
Who Killed Bambi? is fun to watch, and newcomer Quinton has big, beautiful eyes, but the movie's contrived plot, forced conclusion and sentimental denouement rob it of real suspense and meaning.
you eventually get that it's supposed to be suspenseful, but it's ... near impossible to actually feel it.
The forced parallel with the Disney classic proves silly and pretentious, but the dull characters and lethal plot contrivances are what really do Bambi in.
A cool, dry spin on the hospital horror story, steeps the classic woman-in-peril scenario in allusions to Disney's uber-innocent.
This film is more successful in mood and setting (white hallways with stylized lighting and shadows gives a disorientating sense of dread and tension) than in the conventional screenplay.
