serious "vintage" sci-fi fans should appreciate this movie
considering this movie was made in 1961 (uk), its message is still chilling, how far will mankind experiment? it took me two years just to find a copy, the movie will challenge your imagination, if you laugh and say it could never happen, you may be in denial, the early 15 minutes of the film is 60"s exploitation, after that it evolves into a more serious study of how far government and scientists will push the envelope, if 1% of this sci-fi drama could be true, may god help us.
