| This film works on technique, not logic, and not a bad try.
It's took a long time for me to get around to see this film. I distinctly remember being freaked out by the TV ads with the building's lights all being shut down to revealing the skull you see on the poster.

Well, if you have patience and you like old school films, you may find VISITING HOURS entertaining. It is one of those films that keeps you thinking and works more on your emotions, along the veins of DePalma's DRESSED TO KILL or, these days, any film by M. Night Shaylaman. There are some hit and miss elements with the viewing, but Jean Claude Lord gives it a good shot, in both his directing and editing. Fans of Lee Grant or William Shatner won't find much to endure: it's Michael Ironside who's really the star of this picture. Not as gory nor sexy as many of the other films of this genre during the early eighties, but it certainly is better than half of them--and specifically tries to avoid copycating. If you're not too cynical or sarcastic, give VISITING HOURS a watch.
