Cripes!!....this one will bore your socks off. It's a little bit of a "The Fly" rip-off and a lot of endless talking, talking, talking. Dr. Steiner, of the apricot colored hair, is fooling around with teleportation and pays the price for dealing with things that man was never meant to understand (or so they say). Not only does the doctor have pastel hair and a shocking personality, but Derrick DeMarney, playing a bad guy, has the most unbelievable eyebrows you have ever seen. They soar skyward with saucy little tufts on the ends......unreal! (DeMarney was the lead in Hitchcock's "Young and Innocent" in the 1930's. What a comedown!)
The story starts dragging from the first scene and never lets up. The doctor is paranoid about the Institute where he is conducting his experiments, paranoid about his ex-girlfriend who is assisting him and particularly paranoid about Lembach.....is he leaving, is he staying, is he coming or going? Oh, the indecision. What's the deal with Lembach anyway and who really cares?
To sum this film up in a word....borrrrring! Of course, catch it on MSTK and get some laughs but on its own it's a loser. By the way, if you see Lembach, give him my regards.
