Ward 13

What price would you put on your health? Ben is about to find out... WARD 13's newest admission faces medical attention of an unwanted kind — and no apples will keep these doctors away.

After a car accident, Ben wakes up in hospital. Not knowing where he is or what is going on, he starts exploring the corridors...only to find that the staff don't have his health in mind! The hapless patient must pull himself together and do everything he can to escape. It's an action/horror/comedy — ending with the wheelchair chase from hell!
