A scientific problem
8 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

In the world of the chemistry lab, egos are as rife as in any other walk of life as they compete for recognition. Suzanne Pleshette (Anne) wants to discover the truth about the circumstances surrounding the death of her husband Lex Johnson (Dr Furie) a year earlier. He was the project manager overseeing a radiation experiment that went wrong. She thinks she knows what happened and is out for revenge, so watch out lecturer Ed Nelson (Martin). Nelson was part of the same project that killed her husband.

First of all, this film is listed as having a running time of 75 minutes. Well, the copy I have runs for 95 minutes so please take note – I don't know if there are two different versions around? As for the story, it keeps you guessing right until the end and there are several plot twists. It's a good watch and the cast do well in their roles. There are no spiders at all in this film, so don't expect to see any as you will be disappointed.

The film revolves around whether or not Pleshette has got her facts right. Can you be justified in acting on suspicion?
