Dying woman plus miracle serum equals pure evil!
26 February 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Dr. Scott has created a miracle serum. When he's given it to animals with horrible injuries or on the verge of death, they quickly recover and are healthy. So, they want to try it out on a human...but ethically the only way they could do this is to give it to a terminal patient with no hope for recovery. Kyra (Mari Blanchard) is dying of advanced tuberculosis and she very willingly agrees to be the guinea pig. Amazingly, she soon completely recovers. However, there are unforeseen complications--she is now virtually indestructible AND she's evil!

Soon, Kyra is off doing rotten things...and with seeming impunity. In a really, really neat scene for a 1950s film, she bashes some poor guy over the head while stealing something. When the police are searching for her, she hides out in a dressing room and wills her hair color to change...and it does on camera! Then, she just walks off...as they're looking for a brunette and she's now a platinum blonde! And, she seems to exude sex appeal that turn men into puppets in her hands! What's next for this budding sociopath with X-Men powers?!

Overall, this is a highly entertaining film that doesn't always make sense. Why didn't the doctors go to the police? This never made complete sense.
