Interesting premise, neatly executed
22 September 2001 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Just how does a nurse 'accidently' commit himself to a mental asylum? Well, the answer is provided early on in this interesting little movie, and from then on it begins to twist it's way to its perfunctory conclusion.

By no means a superb movie, it does however have several moments of good suspense. Based on the preface given at the start of the movie, this is a game of 'spot the real loony' amongst the assembled cast.

William Windom plays his part well, as the always ever so suspect Dr Quilly, whilst Robert Forester and Jennifer O'Neill both turn in nicely edgy performances the film requires.

The main disappointment was the fact that the film came to an end rather than a crescendo, but having said that it was nice to see the film did come to a fit and proper conclusion, leaving no-one in any doubt as to the final outcome.

It many ways, this movie reminds me of some of horror/suspense movies from the 60's and 70's, albeit sans blood. There are no big scenes here, no chases or 'heart in your mouth' suspense. Instead William A. Levey deals us with a pretty well told tale. True, it is not perfect but having said that, it is nonetheless more than acceptable.

If you've an hour and a half to spare and you see this appear on Cable, then I would defiantly recommended you sit down and give it a watch. Would I rent it on video? Possibly not. For me it's not that sort of material, nor would I imagine it would go down too well at the theater. But as a Saturday afternoon stocking filler, it fit's the bill quite nicely.

Final rating: 7/10
