Storyline

Dr. Anna Fugazzi is a young, attractive psychologist with a loving and devoted (albeit freakish) boyfriend, plenty of stimulating friends, and a bright future ahead of her. But beneath her perfect life and calm exterior lies a deadly secret that she herself cannot imagine, much less confront!!! There is a delicate balance between reality and illusion, between conscious and the subconscious, and for Dr. Fugazzi, the truth lies somewhere in between the beauty of her present life and the horror of the not-too-distant past!!! Shocked by hallucinations and deadly images, tantalized by familiar, eerie voices, provoked by her deranged and knowing patients, and daily nightmares that awaken her in a strange, white room, Dr. Fugazzi takes an inhuman journey into her very psyche!!!!

Trivia

In the original shooting script, the character of "Detective Rowland" was written to be portrayed as a "thin, pale, nervous-looking, 35-year old MAN". During the film's casting process, the director October Kingsley concluded that there were just too many male characters in the film, and not enough strong female characters. Kingsley decided to offer the crucial role of "Detective Rowland" to Hollywood legend Faye Dunaway instead of casting yet another typical male in the role. Dunaway read the script and within 24-hours after reading the script, Faye Dunaway accepted the role of "Detective Rowland". See more »

Quotes

Dr. Anna Fugazzi: Do you suppose it's possible for someone to deny the truth so much so that... even when faced with the glaring light of reality, basic human consciousness ceases to exist for them?
Professor Elam: What? Why would you say such a dreadful thing?

A Wild, Fantastic Ride - Troma Has Done It Once Again...
6 April 2009 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This film was released by Troma Entertainment, and I loved every strange minute of it! It is a wild, fantastic ride of sex, perversion, domination, and good times at a mental institution. Yes, it's weird, blatantly shocking, and filled with all kinds of gratuitous sex and fantasy type symbolism. Well, what did you expect from a Troma release? This is a very, very eccentric movie filled equally eccentric characters! I thoroughly enjoyed all the craziness, though it's definitely not for everyone and the ending is a little predictable (but very amusing). It's a very "art-house" film, but I love the genre and the style of the film.

Faye Dunaway delivered another great performance and so did October Kingsley, though she is in almost every scene. I got a signed copy of the DVD so I am very pleased!! I will be spending many happy nights with the DVD trying to figure out exactly what the hell it all means in the true Freudian sense of the word.
