Too Much Power
14 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An unfortunate space traveller gets incredible power on a sun drenched planet when a kind of toxic rain falls on him. He begins to mutate and with that loses his humanity. Unfortunately, for him, he longs to be with people but has a killer inside him. His very touch kills and he enjoys intimidating those around him. As you can imagine, once people get wind of this, they try what the can to survive, as each meets a violent death. There are good performances here, especially by Warren Oates, who plays Reese, the mutant. This has been done in other sci fi efforts, but the eeriness of this makes it a good bet. It all gets down to what a one of a kind personage can do when he has absolute power to destroy.
