Trevor is a young man who has been sentenced to a long stay in a mental hospital after brutally killing his girlfriend. However, the longer Trevor is in stir, the more he wonders if the murder ever really happened, or if it's all just a horrible fantasy implanted in his brain by Dr. Ek, the sinister director of the asylum.

Many of the effects, including the self-igniting match, had to be devised as practical, theatrical or in-camera effects. See more »
Near the end when Trevor and Faith are making love, you can see the actor is wearing a flesh-tone g-string. As they are sitting and talking in the follow scene, you can see the "string" part on his hips. See more »
Trevor, you got to get me out of here, I don't know what's happening to me. I can't tell you who I am because my can't remember a damn thing. My mind is all fucked up in this damn puppet head, but I swear to you as God is my witness, I am not this guy's hand!

One of those scripts you have to explain to everyone
I can just see the writer and producer sitting down after they finish reading it: "Umm, what does it mean?" "He completed the spell, and his Fiance is stuck in a psychopath's body." "Ahhhh. . . Cool!"
I'll give this movie points for creativity, camera work, and lighting. Very well shot film and some pretty scenes to look at. However, there were a lot of cliche's in this film too. Flashing back to scenes already played, fast cuts, hard music and bugs, scary white people coming out of uniformed houses. There's a lot of this style out now days, it's getting old.
The only reason I continued to watch the movie was because I didn't know what the hell was going on. The one thing the movie understood was that, it's scarier if we don't know what's happening. (something horror writers now days need to understand) However, it's always nice to kinda tell us (if not at the end, then somewhere), what was actually going on. It can be done w/o explanation (see The Birds), but I'm still confused.
It had potential, but I think they flushed it down the drain.
