Movie Info

Admitted to the surgery ward for a routine colonoscopy, forty-year old George Grieves (Thomas Cavanagh) finds himself forced to confront his greatest fear when his surroundings take an unsettling shift towards the surreal. Immediately after awakening from his anesthesia, George is horrified to discover that the surgeon has performed the wrong operation on him. Now, as George's mental and physical condition begins to deteriorate rapidly, he discovers that something is horribly amiss in the hospital's East Ward. But in order to find out the truth about what's been happening in the East Ward, George will have to come face to face with the most sadistic nurse around, and make a difficult decision that promises to alter the course of his entire life.

  • It's less a visual tour-de-force than force-fed pretentious shots meant to convey artistry.

  • It was kinda fun...watching poor George's deteriorating predicament. I kept thinking of Monty Python's Black Knight.

  • unpleasant and flat-out unwatchable piece of work...

  • Whether you'll stick with the movie through to its disappointing end will depend entirely on your stomach for blood, dismemberment, and, ultimately, copouts of epic proportion.

  • Still, even with Krantz's misplaced political advocacy, Sublime comes across as an impressive feature.

  • Relatively-sophisticated for a sci-fi horror flick, this psychological thriller scares the bejesus out of you while subtly using malpractice as metaphor for a generally unacknowledged aspect of American culture.

Maybe... if you spend your life worrying... then the only way that your life will have meaning is if what you fear becomes real.

A man goes to the hospital for a routine colonoscopy, but finds himself drugged, bearing strange scars and increasingly unable to tell reality from his paranoid fantasy. A promising scenario undone by rookie directing mistakes: it drags in the beginning, creates a nice sense of mystery and dread in the middle, then blows it with an anticlimax.

I really wish this movie didn't take so long to get where it was going. Granted, it is one of the most terrifying concept for a film I have ever seen: the horror stems from the compounding medical errors visited upon the protagonist. I wasn't really on board for the twist at the end, but I cannot say that this is a bad movie. It didn't deserve to be as big as it was, but it's pretty respectable.

Strange horror film where a family man is trapped in the weird hospital after his surgery. It's like a part of Twilight Zone.
