Storyline

Dr.Stephanie Lyell works for Neurological Research, and is testing a seemingly safe personality-altering drug on Marc Gilmour a notorious Serial Killer. But when a pair of bizarre suicides occur at Dr. Lyell's apartment complex, Homicide Detective Terry Hamilton connects the mysterious deaths to the drug's diabolical side effects on Gilmour. Only after they too begin to experience horrible dreams and hallucinations do Terry and Stephanie realize they are trapped in Gilmour's nightmarish world, from which there is no hope of escape.

This isn't horror, it's just horrible.
3 September 2000 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

As a big horror fan I've learned by this time not to expect all horror movies to be perfect, but it's nice if they at least make sense. This film (playing as NIGHTSCARE on the movie channels, the American ones at least) starts out with the promise of a somewhat intriguing premise and quickly devolves into a confusing mess. The plot, such as it is, gives us Elizabeth Hurley as a doctor studying "neurotransmitters in the brain" and delving into unethical medical substance injection in an attempt to cure crazy people, or something like that. It doesn't really matter, since before long the toe-sucking, blood-inking bad guy is chasing Liz and her prospective boytoy around in dreams-within-hallucinations. Is it live? Is it Memorex? Does anyone care?

Note to producers: even the unscientific viewer will know that saying things like "neurotransmitters in the brain" is like saying "wires in the radio." In other words, the movie is ridiculously vague, relying too much on downright stupid plot twists and underdone action scenes to get its feeble point across. I'm not sure that the English have a right to complain about the sorry state of American film, when they are turning out cheese like this.

3/10. Dumb stuff.
