I know this is a bit of a throwback; as in eleven years old, but bear with me. 

Room 6 follows the story of elementary school teacher, Amy (Taylor), and her boyfriend, Nick (Brolly). Amy is an elementary school teacher who suffers from nightmares about doctors and hospitals, stemming from the circumstances of her father's death. The day her boyfriend proposes, the two are involved in a serious car accident. An ambulance takes Nick away without ever telling Amy where they're going. It's up to her to find the hospital her boyfriend is staying at. Without any luck at first, it's up to Melissa (Mortez), a young student of her's with a tendency to draw monsters, to help out.

We'll stop there because we don't want to spoil the rest for you!

Room 6 is a fast pace horror film with a few jump scares and ghost appearances. The story line is all over the place and has a predictable ending, but who doesn’t love a good cliché hospital ghost film? I know I do.
