Be My Valentine (X-Ray/Hospital Massacre)

by on Feb.18, 2010, under Daily Review

Kids get up to the craziest of things. Like crazy Harold from the block, who likes to hook little David onto a coat stand, right through the jaw. Suzan screams as Harold looks on menacingly through the open window in a kinda ‘Twin Peaks Bob’ kinda way. All this because she chose little David as her Valentine. How can a kid grown up stable after witnessing this? Who knows, but here we are, 19 years later. Susan (Barbi Benton) has a job promotion and requires a routine medical examination at the Hospital, but she soon finds the staff are being massacred by psycho, dressed in Doctors attire. Could it be Harold back for revenge? It’s Valentines Day after all.

This looks like a US TV drama, Hart to Hart, Cagney & Lacey, General Hospital etc, but a bit more gruesome. The murders are harsh vicious attacks, mainly blade stabbings. One scene shows the killer freaking out after a murder, showing his frustration for knocking off another innocent whilst his main target is Susan. Interesting stuff. This is an average affair really. Quite well filmed, although Director Boaz Davidson soon found his strength in production, the cast are TV veterans; you’ll recognise at least half: Jon Van Hess, Judith Baldwin, John Warner Williams and Chip Lucia. But it’s Barbi Benton who steals the show. Cast in the leading role, she shows real ability and it’s a real shame she didn’t really do much after this. From the pedigree of Charlie’s Angels, CHiPs and Fantasy Island, she’s a hands on actress, strong feisty and determined with immaculate hair throughout.
