Underrated slasher.

"Visiting Hours" is a forgotten slasher film which stars Michael Ironside as a murderer stalking TV journalist Lee Grant.The film is pretty slow,but there is enough violence to satisfy fans of horror cinema.Ironside is pretty believable as a misogynistic serial killer,the rest of the cast is also impressive.The film is pretty scary and suspenseful,so fans of slasher movies won't be disappointed.It was made the same year as similar "Halloween 2".Overall,I enjoyed this one and you should too,especially if you like slasher movies.My rating:8 out of 10.

Smarter than the average slash-fest.

One of the better Canadian killer-thrillers of the 80's is this solid shocker.

TV journalist is attacked by a maniac and taken to the hospital, now the obsessive creep is determined to make sure she doesn't get well soon!

Visiting Hours is a film that, like most slasher films of the 80's, has gotten a bad reputation from critics. However this film is much more than mere slasher garbage! Visiting Hours is a thriller that takes its time to build true suspense, a well-paced plot, and some believable characters. It's a film that, unlike most of the genre, focuses upon the warped character of its villain rather than on the would-be victims. The murder sequences are effectively disturbing, but not overly gory.

The direction of Jean Claude Lord, along with an unsettling music score, combine to make an atmospheric sense of dread through out the film. It manages to make even the sprawling corridors of the hospital setting into a claustrophobic maze. It makes for some nicely suspenseful attack/chase scenes.

The biggest highlight of this film comes from its cast though. Lee Grant is strong as the feminist TV journalist that becomes the target to the killer. Linda Purl does a good turn as a caring nurse, as does Lenore Zann as a street-wise teen. Greatest of all though is villain Michael Ironside. Ironside makes for a truly creepy and compelling murderer. He truly steals the show.

For those that are seeking a slasher film with a bit more of an intelligence to it, Visiting Hours is a fine choice. Don't listen to the critics on this one folks - it's a better film than you may have heard.

*** out of ****

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.
