Storyline

Utterly devastated by causing his bride's drowning death while drunk-driving, Harry leaps off a railroad trestle into dark waters below. He is fished out and sent to a private sanitarium run by Dr. Brewer and Dr. Fargo. The two have a nefarious operation inside: selling beautiful young girls to Middle-Eastern sheikhs for their harems. Under mind control and hypnotic drugs, Harry is routinely sent out as a handsome bait to lure more captives. In his lucid moments, Harry explores upstairs after filching keys from sadistic orderly Otto. Admitting himself into off-limit quarters, he surprises a beautiful woman who claims she's movie star Marilyn Monroe, that another body was substituted for hers and that somebody rich and powerful had her sent here. She pleads for Harry's help in escaping. They eventually fall in love and, after harrowing and horrible ordeals below, including a fight to the death with the enraged Otto, flee the place, but not before Brewer and Fargo meet their ironic fate. Written by John Carr (IV)

This is Not a PG-13 Rated Film...
13 January 2007 | by (Sleesburg, VA.) – See all my reviews

I really don't know where IMDb got its information from. For one, this movie was never officially released. I have a copy of the movie that would appear to be a straight bootleg of the work print. It is to bad that this movie does not have an actual release as it is a pretty fun story. Also, IMDb says something about Marilyn Monroe being in this story, Monroe has absolutely nothing to do with this movie.

Basically, a man kills his wife by accident in a car wreck. When he awakens from the wreck he is in an asylum. The asylum is controlled by two nuts that sell human beings and body parts to over seas byers. Richard Moll plays a crazed orderly that likes to chop up his victims.

Unfortunately, this movie is rather discombobulated. This simply has to do with the fact that the movie was never actually released. As a result, we get horrible editing and horrible sound. But this doesn't take away from the movie, as the film is rather fun and filled with violence and nudity. I would suggest watching the movie Night Train to Terror to basically see an extremely long trailer for the movie (those of you that have seen that movie, know what I am talking about).

If you can find a copy of this movie I would suggest picking it. Remember, if you do find a copy of it, it is going to be a bootleg most likely. 7/10
