A Variation on a Theme
20 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, a group of researchers turn out to be bad guys. The central character has been blind since a plane crash which killed his parents. He is a college English professor who announces to his class that he is going in for experimental surgery that may return his eyesight. We cut to the bandage removal. He is thrilled with seeing the faces of the doctor as well as a pretty psychologist who has been assigned to him in case he faces some difficult transitions. Suddenly, he looks to the ceiling and sees a figure, bathed in light, a mysterious female face coming out of the wall. As he recovers, he is haunted by this figure. It seems to be haunting him and wanting to make a connection with him. Finally, she is able to create a kind of written display that tells him that she needs him. Eventually, a sort of electric charge is sent into him which allows him to cross some kind of barrier and have physical contact with her. He is immediately in love. Of course, nothing like this is that easy. The people who restored his sight know that this experience could happen and they have been leading him down a road where he could betray the magical woman to them. This is a better episode and well worth a look.
