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 »

GREAT idea: BAD movie
27 October 2003 | by (Pacific Northwest) – See all my reviews

The artwork on the box that this DVD came in was infinitely more entertaining than the film (using that term loosely) itself.

I feel as though the creators of this film had a very good Stephen King type idea, but miserably failed at making it into a watchable movie.

Great story. Poor acting and poor filming, perhaps due to a poor budget?

Maybe someone out there will see this movie and re-create it to it's full potential...
