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.

Unusual Premise Poorly Plotted, Badly Acted/Directed/Executed
3 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If your expectations are so low that nudity in a non-adult film is sufficient to get you to watch a movie, particularly given how easy it is to find nudity and near nudity on line without going to an adult site, then this is probably the movie for you. If you expect good technical production values, an excellent and plausible story, good direction and acting, then you want to avoid this film. It does feature a unique element in the plot - at least for a gay theme indie film, and the director did do a little more with the low budget than some other films out in the past five years have accomplished. However, this is another case where a first time director, working from his own plot, is felled (and his projects fails miserably) because there is no director to call the writer on the weakness of his plot, or no writer to argue with the director about where the move is being moved or pushed away from the script -- or simply to toss ideas around with.

The performances aren't horrible, but the two leads are not as charismatic, particularly Montgomery, to get the plot from point A to point B as per the story, and the movie finally fails on the weakness in the plot, particularly towards the end of the film.
