Hard to find, and for good reason!
5 July 2001 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This was one of the last of the exploitation documentary craze of the '70s. Perhaps seeing the dwindling audiences for these docs explains why little seems to have been done to make it good. The four guest starts have mostly generic narration, suggestion that most (if not all) of the documentary was actually conceived and made after their spots were filmed! Anyway, you'll find a ton of stock footage; inept editing; that a surprising number of actual names, places, and dates NEVER get mentioned; a number of "amazing" phenomenon that has been discredited in recent years (psychic surgery, hypnosis into people's past etc.) and no end credits, suggesting (unless the video manufacturer interfered) that the movie was never actually finished!
