Storyline

A simple man, Dr. Walter Newman, has high aspirations to cure all disease through genetic manipulation. His obsession with his mission draws him deeper into his own dark world, distracting him from his wife Olivia and from his responsibilities to his patients at the Edgewood Asylum. The doctors loyal but diabolical nurse, Ms. Tinsley, decides to take matters into her own hands and in secret she conducts her own experiment. When Dr. Newman realizes what has been done, a deformed creature that defies nature is created. Part human, part nightmare. Dr. Newman knows what he must do, but is it already too late?

Bad, but not in a good way.
29 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Well, yes this was a waste of time. I made it an hour in, I feel like I deserve an a award. I also only watched this due to it's high rating, I should have looked at the reviews, obviously by family of the crew. This film is wholly disappointing. Cliché ridden, poorly acted, atrociously scripted. It is dreadful, and I usually like terrible films. Unfortunately this is bad for all the wrong reasons.

As I need to fill the review out to 10 lines I would just like to say.... DON'T BOTHER! Watch Rosemary's Baby, watch The Hills Have Eyes, dig out some horror classics and enjoy yourself. Just don't watch this film.
