Deadly Formula
15 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Skip Homier stars as Dr. Roy Clinton, who works at a University lab that has recently experimented with a new drug formula called CE, or consciousness expansion. It puts one colleague into a suspended animation that is(almost fatally) mistaken for death, but on poor Roy, it turns him into a ruthless(yet intelligent) hulking brute with no conscience yet super strength and delusions of grandeur, as he as already killed two, and it may become more. Keith Andes costars as a friend named Dr. Peter Wayne, and James Doohan as a police detective investigating the case. Mostly dreary and static episode has the right ingredients but comes out flat.
