An F.B.I. Agent persuades a social worker, who is adept with a new experimental technology, to enter the mind of a comatose serial killer in order to learn where he has hidden his latest kidnap victim.
Catharine Deane is a psychotherapist who is part of a revolutionary new treatment which allows her mind to literally enter the mind of her patients. Her experience in this method takes an unexpected turn when an F.B.I. Agent comes to ask for a desperate favor. They had just tracked down a notorious serial killer, Carl Stargher, whose method of operation is to abduct women one at a time and place them in a secret area where they are kept for about forty hours until they are slowly drowned. Unfortunately, the killer has fallen into an irreversible coma which means he cannot confess where he has taken his latest victim before she dies. Now, Catherine Deane must race against time to explore the twisted mind of the killer to get the information she needs, but Stargher's damaged personality poses dangers that threaten to overwhelm her.Written by

The demonic image of Carl with purple curtains attached to his back advancing down the steps screams at Catherine, demanding to know where she came from.

Toward the end of the movie, the two FBI agents are seen going into and flying in the helicopter, but in the next scene, they are seen in the laboratory to witness the final experiment. See more »
The Australian DVD from Roadshow contains the extended European version, with Stargher masturbating in suspension over the bleached female victim. This release was granted an R rating by the OFLC, whereas the shorter version was rated MA. See more »
Probably the most underrated serial killer movie of all, past and to come, times.
Never seen anything like that. Not only the visual, by the way astonishing, but also the concept. If you are a serious movie lover, specially this genra, it is a must to see.
