This lackluster hospital slasher is also known as Be My Valentine, or Else.

Susan Jeremy (the bounteous Barbi Benton) goes to the hospital to pick up some routine tests...but there she discovers a mad psycho with an unruly scalpel!

The madman chases the bouncy Ms. Benton through endless hospital corridors, leaving a pile of bloody bodies strewn behind him.

Turns out said loony has a score from the past to settle (who doesn't?). But can poor Barbi escape this hospital hack and make it out of this nightmarish place alive?

This functions primarily as a showcase for Hugh Hefner gal Benton to undress and breathe in a lot (just check out that 'examination' scene!).

Still, buxom Barbi tries her damnedest.

And in the right mood and right time, X Ray manages a modicum of fun. That said, aficionados of hospital horrors would do significantly better with 1982's Visiting Hours.

More popularly known as Hospital Massacre.
