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.

You're so bogged down with your pathetic guilt and fears.
14 January 2014 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Yes, this is that film (AKA Nightscare), the one where the luscious Liz Hurley decided it was time to do her bit for tabloid journalists everywhere and bared her breasts. Is is worth it to see her?

It is a dark and strange film. Hurley is a scientist experimenting with a new drug to control psychos. She is using it on a grade A psychopath Marc Gilmour (Keith Allen) when Terry Hamilton (Craig Fairbrass), a policeman who death with Gilmour in the past finds out and tries to stop her. Too late. The drug enables Gilmour to make his dreams become real. He never leaves his cell, but is manipulating the world around them, using their guilt and fears to terrorize them.

It all sound a little preposterous, and it is confusing to follow. The ending is most unsatisfactory.
