Storyline

10 years ago the perverse Dr. Russell couldn't resist the beauty of a young patient in his mental clinic and raped her one night. When she plunged herself from the roof shortly after, he described it as consequence of her heavy depressions. Now the same urge overcomes him with his new patient Sandy. He doesn't know that she's the daughter of his previous victim and that she's come for revenge. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Trivia

When Emerson Bixby began scripting, he originally envisioned Geoffrey Lewis as Dr. Russell. Malcolm McDowell ended up playing Dr. Russell, and Lewis was cast as Michael. Bixby had never mentioned writing a character for Lewis, whose subsequent casting was a coincidence. See more »

Truly awful and and should be an absolute embarrassment to all involved ,,,
6 March 2012 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Malcolm McDowell has done much better films (see "The Barber"), but none worse than this amateurish atrocity. The script, if there was one, makes no sense whatsoever. The acting by Malcolm McDowell, Geoffrey Lewis, Pricilla Pointer, Pamela Gidley, and everyone else is pathetic. I have no idea where the positive reviews here came from, but I guarantee that "Disturbed" is terrible. Don't believe me? Believe this. After reviewing over 800 movies on IMDb, I say this is absolutely the worst film I have seen, and I have viewed some real crap for sure. Beyond ridiculous, the script is not developed past a fifth grade level. You have been warned. - MERK
