Two versions of the morgue scene were shot. In the North American cut, the coroner removes the sheet from the female victim exposing her face only. In the U.K./European cut, the coroner removes the sheet revealing her breasts as well. See more »
Scientist has terrible accident with his teleportation device and ends up horribly disfigured and with the power to electrocute people with his hand!
Intriguing enough science-gone-wrong thriller from Britain. There's some decent suspense and occasional shock (no pun intended) to be had. The cast isn't half bad, star Bryant Haliday is the best as both the films tragic hero and semi-frightening villain. The makeup work on Haliday isn't half bad. Nice dramatic music score as well.
Over all a decent enough sci-fi flick, but it doesn't match The Fly.
** 1/2 out of ****
