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? Written by

I'd find it hard to enjoy even if I were a fan of cheap & nasty horror films. It really doesn't have a niche. The best description I could give is that it's a really poor late-night TV movie with horrendous acting. I would estimate that 97% of the movie has that 'gripping' horror score playing in the background. So overdone its laughable.
The plot is poor and unoriginal, the effects are pretty cheap too. It's full of the usually horror clichés and attempts at building tension.
I generally find IMDb scores to be a pretty fair grade to go by but this one has really slipped through the net. There is no way on earth that this junk deserves a 7/10 (at the time of writing this).
I can only hope that people are joking.
