Surgery. Needles. Scalpels. Stitches. Dental drills. Chances are, seeing one of those words made you cringe a little. But why? Why does just reading a word related to medical procedures make so many people cringe? From creating hideous monsters to reviving the dead, doctors have seemingly always been a staple of horror movies. But what is more terrifying...the mad doctors of our imaginations, or going to the hospital for a very real medical procedure??
In this episode of my 60 Days of Halloween coverage, I'll be dissecting Cardiac Arrest (1980), Anatomy (2000), Dr. Giggles (1992), Pathology (2008), The Dentist (1996), and the first two episodes of Kingdom Hospital (2004) for Medical Horror Week!!
