Storyline

After being struck by lightning, Dr. Bill Matthews recovers in the hospital where he also works. An intern named Craig Murphy slips him a card inviting him to a meeting of "people just like us." In this "group," Bill finds other survivors who have been electrocuted in various ways. But the doctor soon discovers that the members are addicted to the electric current. And not only does Bill become hooked, his relationship with sexy Dr. Craig Murphy deepens, setting a chain of events into shocking motion. Written by Doug Prinzivalli

Quotes

[first Lines]
Dr. Emily Andersen: For some reason you were left with no burn marks, however the current used your hands and feet as it's escape route so you'll probably have nerve damage in all four extremities.
Bill Matthews: Permanent?
Dr. Emily Andersen: Not necessarily, but you should prepare yourself for the very real possibility that you won't be returning to surgery.

Tried to like it but....
22 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give it two stars for frontal nudity and the rest is garbage the movie stinks so bad I had to fast forward to bear it...as a gay man I always hope for a fine well done movie and unfortunately this just wasn't any of those things. Convoluted, stupid, boring, utterly a waste of time. Montgomery I have seen him in other films he just can't act, the other actor was decent but the movie just isn't any good terrible direction, awful script just skip it, there are better gay films out there to bad most of them are foreign made or else come from a non gay filmmaker. I guess it was a big stretch to try and make a meaningful movie and have it be sci-fi horror.
