Infection (Kansen) (2004)
Director: Masayuki Ochiai
Main Stars: Michiko Hada, Mari Hoshino, Tae Kimura, Yoko Maki, Kaho Minami, Koichi Sato
Storyline: A hospital mistake makes all the staff pay
Review (Spoils): A general hospital is in dire need as it is broke. The staff have been reduced greatly and everyone is over tired and worn out. A burn patient appears out of nowhere and gets admitted into the lacking of staff hospital. When the nurse accidently injects sodium chlorate it kills the patient. They staff try to cover up the error and then strange things start to happen.
Bring on the hot nurses in this one as we have three young nurses running around as they try to struggle with the confusion of the doctors and the confusion it is a virus out break or a ghost story. The film does not lack on the gore as they love the green slime in this one along with some red blood. The film plays of the sound effects of gooey and sticky decomposing bodies along with the eerie sounds of the music. Gore fans will not mind this film and if you like screaming and panicking young Japanese nurses well you’re in luck. We have blood, needles, cute nurses, more green liquid then needed, ghost like chats, goo and bleeding eyes and ears.
The downfall for me of this film is, I’m confused was it revenge curse or was the actual dude nuts? Too me this does not quiet get cleared up and I like the idea that he was nuts. The film tries to be a tie into [REC] and The Grudge, it does not destroy the film but it does make the audience think “my god choose what direction you want to go with this film!”
Rating: Gooey green blood and cute nurses not sure why you could not enjoy this film with some buds and beers. Sure the plot can be kind of all over the place but the finally 10 minutes it does make you think as it tries to full circle the idea of the infection.
