Medical Mayhem

This genre usually revolves around a medical facility or setting where a medical practitioner of any sort uses his training or expertise for diabolical, evil motives or lucrative purposes. A mad scientist or doctor practices "unnatural" medicine. Current medical "hot topics" become nightmarish scenarios.

"Trust not the physician; His antidotes are poison, and he slays more than you rob." - William Shakespeare
