The Power,” a thriller horror psychodrama that’s specifically concerned with sexual misconduct and then more generally about the abuse of power at a London hospital. These social issues are obviously broad enough to still be prevalent, but “The Power” is set in 1974, as an opening title card explains:

“Trade unions and the government are at war. The economy is in crisis. Blackouts have been ordered to conserve power, plunging the nation into darkness every night.”

Trainee nurse Val (Rose Williams) arrives for her first day at the East London Royal Infirmary, during a swathe of electrical blackouts in London 1974, and must contend with the near dark and a malevolent spirit while working the night shift.

The more Val learns about the hospital’s history and her less than cordial colleagues, the more she is tormented by the spectral nasty that is causing her mental state to deteriorate. Williams realises this descension very well as she wields her limbs wildly and stares through sunken eyes to deliver an increasingly disturbing physical performance.
