Film Review: The Hospital 2 (2015)


Two guys and one woman are running a shelter for women who have been assaulted by their husbands.  The place looks like a shelter, but in reality it’s a place for sick behavior and where ill minds perform their acts.


The Hospital 2 is a sequel to the 2013 film The Hospital.  I haven’t seen the first film and to try and make some sense of this film, here’s the synopsis for The Hospital:

Old St. Leopold’s Hospital has many urban legends surrounding it, but the residents of Bridgeport all agree on one thing: tortured souls roam its abandoned halls. The mystery proves too much for a pretty young student who decides to investigate for her senior class project. Unfortunately, she does not find ghosts. She, instead, finds Stanley… serial rapist, murderer, and psychopath. As the young girl becomes Stanley’s new pet, a team of young investigators descend on the hospital to “hunt some ghosts.” Stanley sees nothing but fun and games in his future. But, what Stanley does not know is that the hospital truly is haunted and the restless spirits there are not happy with what he has been doing.

 Several dead bodies are discovered in a building by paranormal investigator, Scott (Scott Tepperman) and after he calls it in to the police, he is arrested for the murders. The bodies that were found were people the police had been looking for, but there are still others who are missing.  Five years later, Skye (Betsy Rue) and Beth (Constance Medrano) see in the news that Scott has been released from prison. Beth thinks the serial killer Stanley and a couple of other serial killers/rapists are still on the loose, but Skye thinks they are dead, even though their bodies have never been found. Their friend Mandy (Lara-Louisa Piacquadio) asks them to tell her about the case they were working on five years ago before the murders happened. Beth tells Mandy that she was doing a paper on folklore and went to an old hospital to investigate and was held hostage and raped by Stanley. Skye was also there doing a ghost hunt and describes the rape and torture of other girls, and says she thinks it was satanic. Skye and Beth became friends after surviving the incident.

Catelyn (Dessa Blackthorn) is a battered wife and seeks help at a women’s shelter, where she meets another battered woman, Rickie (Cheyenne Oliver). The women’s shelter is actually being run by Stanley (Daniel Emery Taylor), the serial rapist, Samantha (Megan Emerick), and Samantha’s father Alan (Jim O’Rear). They are taking girls from the shelter and raping and torturing them and live streaming it on the internet. This movie looked like an amateur attempt at fetish porn. The rape and torture scenes were cringeworthy, not just because of what was done to the victims, but also because the dialogue could have been written by a prepubescent boy.  They pride themselves in being the highest profiled snuff artists in the field after seeing how many viewers they have online.

After Stanley tortures and rapes Mandy, she tells him how to find Beth and Skye.  Samantha and Alan realize that Stanley is trying to find Beth and Skye because they escaped from them five years earlier.   When Beth finds Mandy’s mutilated body, she knows that Stanley is after them and tries to warn Skye, but can’t get in touch with her.

Samantha and her twisted friends find Skye at her parents’ house and force their way in.  Samantha and Alan decide to torture Skye’s parents and film it.  Some truly disgusting scenes follow.  There is literally no plot to this film, other than torture filled sex scenes and mutilation, while terrible dialogue is being spouted by the actors. Beth goes to the police for help, while Stanley is throwing a temper tantrum because he wants Skye.  Samantha and Alan have Skye and they turn on Stanley and then chaos ensues.  Sometimes you come across a really low budget film that’s cheesy and you find a way to have fun with it. This just isn’t possible with this film. There is nothing likeable about it.

This movie tries to be a cool murder mystery with a snuff film subplot, but instead looks like someone’s cheap home movie that would be hidden in the back of a bookshelf.
