Storyline

A generation ago, Dr Max Warick was researching a mysterious experimental drug which was scientifically proven to cure certain types of madness. But as the most deranged test subjects miraculously regained their sanity, the control patients, who were given no drugs at all, suffered horrific consequences. Because no one could find the cause of such deadly side effects, the experiments were stopped. But now twenty years later, a new set of hospital officials are about to release the drug into the marketplace. And the only man who can prevent this terror from eating away at the masses has since traded in his lab coat for a straight jacket. Written by cnc

Trivia

Uri Geller's scenes were added after the film was completed because it was felt that the film was too complicated and some kind of explanation was needed. See more »

Goofs

Its a common goof, but however small always breaks the film "spell". One of the mourners makes the classic mistake of looking directly at the camera, just after the punch up at the wake, but the real beauty of it is that it's as if she forgot they were filming (so "into" the role), and was surprised to see a camera in the room, check out the double take at the camera, then swift realisation of her GOOF and aversion of the eyes away! Luckily the tall baldy chap is acting so well most people miss this goof. See more »

More complex than it seems
4 March 2004 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I am almost 100% sure this movie was created from a videogame with the same name. If you are into video games and like the classic point-and-click adventure style, you're gonna love this one. Definitly you need to see both (the video game and the movie) before you can tell anything about the movie. Of course, the story is a little different, but it is the same thing. Actually the name of the main guy is the same: MAX. The plot seems to be a cliche, but as the real story reveals, you find out it is not such a thing! Forget about the low budget. This movie is awesome. The music is great and certain scenes make you believe you are really in a sanitarium. After all what could you expect from a movie with such title? Just what it has: Confusion, darkness, suspense and chills. This movie has it all, so, from my perpective, the movie reaches its goals. I am sure it was created not to be a big time but to create discussion, and leave you with a taste in your mouth. What taste? That depends on you...
