Oops! Fried a guy!!
18 January 2006 | by AngryChairSee all my reviews

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 ****
