The masochist Elizabeth lives a marriage of convenience with the cynical, sadistic and reckless playboy Victor, who is the heir of a huge inheritance including the mansion where they live. She is the lover of Victor's lawyer and best friend Roman, but she can not divorce Victor since she signed a prenuptial contract that would leave her with only $10,000. Roman plots with Elizabeth to poison Victor with an experimental drug, but it fails and Victor is completely paralyzed without dying. During his autopsy with three medical students, Victor awakes from his comatose status, and totally deranged, he seeks revenge using his torture chamber. Written by

The movie was somewhat slow and I agree with some other posters, that none of the characters were likable.... Though actually I liked Viktor more than the other main characters in this strange triangle.But thats not saying much.Its like saying one likes 8 inches of snow as opposed to a foot of snow. You get my point. The movie did avoid cliché material , which was a good thing. Probably could have used some more gore but it was gory enough. The sound effects when Viktor was doing something to his fingers was spectacular. I wont say anymore about that. The acting, overall was fair. I will point out I liked Kristy Swanson in that part , because it gave one a feeling of realism. She was a bit on the chunky side and it is refreshing to see that in an American movie. I know the Brits are good at having regular folk type people , in the looks department being in their movies. I say give the movie a shot and maybe do some house work with an eye and ear on the movie for the first half hour and buckle in for the last hour.
