Dark Fantasy – Sleeping Death. ep30, 420612

Posted by Keith on August 14, 2014

A man goes to a doctor for an ailment with his leg. Since the condition was tolerated for so long, the seriousness has progressed to the point of losing the leg. Suddenly we realize the patient is also suffering from some sort of short term, selective amnesia. Who is this doctor? How did this man come to be in the doctor’s care?

Creepy secrets begin to emerge. The doctor is the patients former boss. A sanitarium that had been closed down 10 years ago is again open, and in flashback we learn about the role of the patient in shutting the place down.

The terro deepens. Will our patient ever leave? Let’s just say that in the doctor’s vengeful care, he doesn’t have a leg to stand on. Pun intended. The reign of revenge gets worse as another former employee arrives. Will she also fall prey? Our legless patient seems to have not survived his surgery. The audio seems to be cut a little short, so the diabolical and suspenseful ending can only be left to your own imagination.

OK, it’s cut a lot short, only the first half of the show is there. Still, these Dark Fantasy shows can be repetitive in the build up, and kinda predictable in the outcome. Here’s my prediction. The doctor builds up the horror, but in the end the two women team up to burn the place down. If anybody knows of a more complete copy of this show, or has a prediction of your own to make, I’d like to hear about it.
