Horror Hospital (1973)
90 min.
Directed by Anthony Balch.
With Michael Gough, Robin Askwith, Vanessa Shaw, Ellen Pollock, Skip Martin, Dennis Price.
Totally offbeat horror film about a musician (Askwitch) and his girlfriend (Shaw) who decide to take a vacation and end up at a health resort run by a mad doctor named Doc Storm (played with relish by Gough).

'Health resort,' indeed! It seems the good doctor practices some unorthodox medicine: he performs surgery on his healthy young patients and turns them into brain dead zombies which he commands via remote control. Yikes.

Gough chews up the scenery and tears up the premise in this wacko Brit horror with a gallows sense of humor.

No classic, but in the right frame of mind you might enjoy this minor effort which plays out like some Hammer film left out too long in the sun.

Also known as Computer Killers.
