Brilliant researchers Lillian Reynolds and Michael Brace have developed a system of recording and playing back actual experiences of people. Once the capability of tapping into "higher brain functions" is added in, and you can literally jump into someone else's head and play back recordings of what he or she was thinking, feeling, seeing, etc., at the time of the recording, the applications for the project quickly spiral out of control. While Michael Brace uses the system to become close again to Karen Brace, his estranged wife who also works on the project, others start abusing it for intense sexual experiences and other logical but morally questionable purposes. The government tries to kick Michael and Lillian off the project once the vast military potential of the technology is discovered. It soon becomes obvious that the government is interested in more than just missile guidance systems. The lab starts producing mind torture recordings and other psychosis inducing material. When ...

The tape used in the tape machines is a variety of decorative tape made by 3M. 3M only sold it in four-inch widths, so it had to be slit by hand to two-inch widths to fit in the tape machines. When filmed, they were astounded at how gaudy it looked, so to dampen its brightness, the prop crew wound the tape back and forth across a sander to dull its brilliance. "One of those things that actually looked a lot better on film when we finished with it," Douglas Trumbull commented. See more »

Cleans out the cobwebs in the corner of your mind.
Absolute wonderful science fiction. This story is about two scientists(Christopher Walken and Louise Fletcher) that create a mind-boggling invention that rushes forward the research on capabilities and practices of virtual reality. A lot of word of mouth publicity on this being Natalie Wood's last motion picture and her rumored personal relationship with Walken. Somewhat disturbing story line, but very intriguing and fascinating. To be exact a second viewing makes the experience even better. Strap this one on and enjoy.
Walken is mysterious and sullen as ever, that's what we like. Miss Wood seems more like decoration and that is really sad considering her outstanding career. Fletcher as a chain smoking scientist is pretty clever. Others in the cast are: Cliff Robertson, Joe Dorsey and Jordan Christopher.
