“Don’t leave me. He’s here. I know it!”

If you’re a fan of the original 1981 version of Halloween II, Lee Grant or slasher films (or a combination of these), then you’re likely to enjoy Visiting Hours. It’s not the greatest film ever made and it leans heavily into exploitation, whether it’s feminism or abuse, but it is very much of its time. First off, it’s great to see Lee Grant and William Shatner sharing the screen together. However, in all truth, Shatner’s screen time is extremely limited and not really worthy of his talents. It’s more of a statement about two strong women (well, technically three) taking down a serial killer, played by a terrifying Michael Ironside. From the violence side of things, perhaps one of the best parts of this film is that it doesn’t go too over the top. It does stretch the realms of believability in some ways, but it isn’t as if it presents a killer wielding endless torture devices who just won’t stay dead (which the 1980s became synonymous with). It’s more like a modern update of Cape Fear primarily set in a hospital with (admittedly) shades of the first two Halloween films (minus the invincible killer) mixed in. As said, it isn’t the best film of its type, but it isn’t the worst and it’s more grounded than most of the era. On a more cosmetic level, you’ve just got to love that poster of the skull made up of hospital window lights!
