Worth watching - once.
4 December 2000 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

As I watched this movie, I couldn't help thinking that it was right out of the 50's., and I half expected Vincent price to poke his head around the corner at any moment. Movies that verge on "the mad professor" type stories, are rather limited in their appeal, but this one seemed to have more going for it than most, but, unfortunately, it was quite flat. Sutherland [who never seems to get the sort of roles he richly deserves,] and in fact all the cast, do their best, but it doesn't really help. The plot is too predictable, and ultimately just doesn't hold the interest.
