Storyline

Harry Poole, an introverted young man, suffers from bipolar disorder. He enrolls in a clinical trial run by the famous Dr. Lanyon, whose miracle drug is destined to help people like him lead a more balanced life. Under constant video surveillance, Harry quickly experiences positive results and turns into a new man, more charismatic and charming. He even manages to seduce Anna, a young nurse who looks after him. Harry, fully embracing his rebirth, creates a new personality for himself. "Edward Grey" is born, the man he has always wanted to be: outgoing, bold and fearless. Unfortunately, the doctor abruptly discontinues the clinical trial. Cases of rage and confusion have been reported among other test subjects and the medication is pulled. Anna, taking pity, gives Harry a parting gift: a large supply of the pills, with which he continues his own "trial" at home. Intoxicated by the freedom and power of his new identity as "Edward", Harry slowly surrenders himself to his dark alter ego ... Written by anonymous

Worth watching if only for Andrew Howard's LSD scene
9 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I must admit that this film didn't really so do much for me until the end when Dr Leonard (Andrew Howard) was made to consume a large amount LSD. That was probably the only reason I am writing a review. Don't get me wrong, the film wasn't at all bad but it could have been better. I've seen a few films with Andrew Howard in and he usually plays a villain or a lunatic. Think he's yet another underrated actor and look forward to seeing him in other films. The rest of the acting was mediocre, especially from the lead character who I've not seen before. All in all, not a bad film and worth a watch. I'd actually give this a 6.2/10.
