Movie Info

An archeologist excavating the site of a 17th Century plague hospital inadvertently unleashes the malevolent ghost of the notorious doctor who claimed countless lives 350 years prior. During the 17th Century, a plague was sweeping across the land and a twisted doctor was feeding on the misery of his patients. Centuries later, archeologist Anna has discovered the site of the hospital that the malevolent medico worked in. As the excavation gets underway, Anna becomes trapped in the darkened corridors with a group of trespassing teens. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the doctor is always on call, and eager to practice on some new patients. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Sickhouse


I liked the story and the weird twist but it's not that great to love this movie. The lighting was way too dark to understand what was going on. And it was a bit confusing. Not interested to watch it again to understand it though.

This film is absolutely terrible. It doesn't make any sense and you never know what the heck is going on. Their isn't enough dialogue in the film and nothing is ever explained. The camera work is shaky. Things happen for no reason. Most of the scenes are just unnecessary. The jumpiness of the film is both irritating and upsetting. The only half way decent part of the film is the ending, because that's when they finally tell you what is going on, but the whole time difference thing in my opinion was just an excuse not to give a real ending, because they realized their film was terrible. So don't bother wasting your time with this one, because it is not worth it at all.
