His Brain Was Bothering HIM !
19 June 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Found this film a complete spinner with flashbacks almost as soon as the picture begins. John Savage loses his wife in a horrible car accident with a truck and dives off a cliff and explodes. However, for some reason, John Savage begins to have dreams about his wife and this accident plays over and over again in his brain and it drives him crazy. Savage completely looses self control and winds up in a rehabilitation center where the head doctor treats his patients like animals in a cage. John Savage does have a very sexy nurse to take care of him and he has wild dreams about making love with her, so he is not completely nuts. If you like something to spin your own brain, watch this film and you will feel like you are in the SPIN ZONE and I forgot, the ending will blow your mind completely AWAY !
