Storyline

The great hypnotist Professor Montserrat has developed a technique for controlling the minds, and sharing the sensations, of his subjects. He and his wife Estelle test the technique on Mike Roscoe, and enjoy 'being' the younger man. But Estelle soon grows to love the power of controlling Roscoe, and the vicarious pleasures that provides. How far will she go, and can the Professor restrain her in time?

And next, the world!
3 November 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There's something that suggests world domination in Boris Karloff's first description of his technique to hypnotize young people but this is soon dispelled by a surprising performance in a rather average film. Interestinglyly pieced together, the director tries hard to portray the idea of control which only sometimes works, but nevertheless does get better as the film nears a climax. Predictable in plot but still violent enough to present a challenge to those expect a little more from their Karloff movies. Great just to see Karloff in an argument in a newsagents at the very beginning - not a usual scene from your run-of-the-mill fantasy thrillers!
