The film

  • Complete Monster: Dr. Berrisford is a mild, unassuming man who runs a hospital for those with mental trauma. In reality, he is a sadist with a god complex and wishes to test his theories on suicide on his patients. Berrisford emotionally manipulates his mentally fragile patients to make them snap, resulting in them killing themselves and others. He has one leap out her window to the street, and has another throw her head into a turbine. One patient he leads to the roof to manipulate her into jumping off before the hero of the movie rescues her. Berrisford simply tries to push them off himself, after having mentally tortured said patient the entire film by planting the idea in her head that the ghost of a cult leader who'd tried to kill her was haunting her.
