Storyline

Dr. Peter Houseman is a brilliant geneticist who is working on a serum which will stop human aging, but his colleagues don't believe in his work. When his university funding is threatened by his skeptical benefactors, the doctor takes a desperate measure to justify his work. He administers the serum to himself, but the results are unexpected and horrendous. Written by Patrick D. Rockwell <prockwell@thegrid.net>

"Metamorphosis"...predictably for the worse.
16 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Mixing in about equal parts "The Fly" and "Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde", this flick is reasonably well-done on an obviously low budget, but the minute it stops regarding its hero as a human and starts treating him like a standard movie monster, it completely loses its point. Perhaps that's why the drawn-out climax is so unexciting. But it deserves some kind of award for having in its cast one of the most dislikable kids that ever appeared in a movie. (**)
