R | | Horror, Thriller
While receiving a routine check-up, a woman finds herself stranded on the hospital's eighth floor, while someone dressed as a doctor is intent on her never leaving, even if it means killing any staff member who comes into contact with her.
Billy Jacoby (Jayne), who plays young Harry and Elizabeth Hoy, who plays young Susan, appeared together as murderous children in "Bloody Birthday" the same year they appeared together in "X-Ray".
Hey, wait, isn't this the hospital where they had all that trouble last year?
Susan Jeremy: What trouble?
Jack: Some patient ran amok or something.
Susan Jeremy: Oh, please!
When woman is running from the killer who approaches her with a blanket, the corridor she is running through is changed between the shots.
In the UK, the BBFC heavily cut this in 1981 in order to secure an 'X' certificate. When released in 1983 on VHS in the UK on the Rank Video label under the title 'X-Ray', the same cut release was used with a VHS PAL running time of 77 minutes (equivalent to 80mins theatrical). However, in the US it was released uncut on VHS by MGM/UA Home Video in 1983, under the title Hospital Massacre and runs 89 minutes.
