Movie Info

When comic book artist Josh (Eric Roberts) meets Cheryl (Janine Turner), he immediately falls for her -- unfortunately, she immediately takes a fall as well, collapsing in the street. It turns out Cheryl is diabetic, so Josh calls for an ambulance and promises to meet her at the hospital. When he arrives, however, the hospital has no record of Cheryl. Josh looks for help, even going to a police lieutenant (James Earl Jones), but nobody believes his story, so he must find the ambulance himself.

Audience Reviews for The Ambulance

  • Apr 02, 2014
    Cult horror film featuring Eric Roberts, The Ambulance is one of those gems that are sure to delight genre fans with its premise. This is pure midnight horror at its best, and it's a well constructed film that has a fun, engaging idea for those who are looking for a fun low budget horror B movie. The idea behind the film is interesting and the direction by awesome cult film director Larry Cohen is top notch and he directs a film that is a definite must watch for genre fans. Films like this are rare in the sense that they deserve to be rediscovered and use simple ideas to create a tense, horrifying story. The film may be cheesy, but that's what makes it worth seeing. The cast do a fine job in their roles, and it ends up being an engaging picture from start to finish. The film has a good blend of horror and action, and Cohen yet again delivers a film that is pure horror camp, and he always manages to make some of the finest cult horror films of the 80's, and with this, he has made a terrific early 90's film that continues his tradition of making memorable cult pictures. The concept is good, and it is sure to please horror fans looking for something different. I recommend this film to anyone that enjoys a well crafted B movie. This one is a standout affair with plenty of thrills and chills and I've seen my share of low budget horror films, and The Ambulance is an underrated forgotten gem that deserves to be rediscovered by genre fans. The film may have its flaws, but it's worth seeing if you're a fan.

    Not Eric Roberts proudest moment.

    I only watched this because I thought it was about paramedics. Ugh. The only memorable part of this bizarre thriller was watching how James Earl Jones furiously chews his gum.
