Storyline

Londoner Adam Jones is stuck in a dead end job; lives alone with his cat and spends his free time obsessing over the latest conspiracy theories on the Internet. Taking an experimental drug for his epilepsy, manufactured by the Pfenal corporation, Adam begins suffering from seizures, black outs and terrifying visions. When he wakes up in a hotel room in Mexico missing a kidney, Adam becomes convinced that he's unwittingly stumbled into the middle of a conspiracy. Drugged by mysterious paramedics, Adam finds himself back in his London flat. Just as he assumes it's just been a bad dream, the pain of a scar on his back serves to convince him that something dark and disturbing is indeed happening. Worse still, Adam's one friend at work, Tracey, informs him that he's been missing from work for a week and as a result he's been fired. He turns to his doctor, but she seems to be overly zealous in prescribing the drug company's medication. His only confidant is his beautiful and mysterious ... Written by JL

a good little indie number
24 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that it seems to me needs to be judged for what it is. Namely, a film made on a small budget that punches above its weight. It looks to me like the script could have done with a bit more work, but that said, the acting performances are largely excellent, the direction is good and the subject matter intriguing. Adam, the lead, is excellent - a really good portrayal of a geek who is nevertheless a hapless hero. And the tortures he goes through are great. The San Fran bar scene towards the end of the film hints at real potential. In some senses the ending might be considered predictable, but equally, it's really nice and dark and doesn't let up. Is this all his paranoid ravings or is he actually the victim of a grander corporate experiment? With all the news about drugs companies pushing the limits of the law both in terms of how they market drugs and how they test them, this seems to me a timely reminder of the dark realities of modern consumerism and the thin line between the profit motive and patient welfare. A good little Indy effort and much more refreshing than most Brit flicks currently on offer.
