Incredibly strange b-movie
8 October 2002 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

I really still don't know what this movie is all about. Described as a "psycho thriller", its about Patrick McGoohan as a mad scientist running a hospital for mentally disturbed patients and doing psychological experiments with schizophrenia and paranoia effects. Now it's the turn of a doctor to find out about this mad experiments of his boss.

That's the whole story, and it's even difficult to fin a plot within this weird and confusing b-movie psycho drama. I guess there was no real script involved, as the pacing, the logical story and the acting all seem completely pointless. Only Amanda Plummer's performance as a paranoid wheelchair patient is at least interesting and unusual.

There are martial arts fights, seducing sexploitation, horror elements, crazy zombies just walking around and even modern dance theater scenes, but the whole senseless mixture of weirdo elements cannot bring light into the darkness but only leave the watchers confused about this very strange film that nobody really needs.
