Storyline

Harry Poole, an introverted young man, suffers from bipolar disorder. He enrolls in a clinical trial run by the famous Dr. Lanyon, whose miracle drug is destined to help people like him lead a more balanced life. Under constant video surveillance, Harry quickly experiences positive results and turns into a new man, more charismatic and charming. He even manages to seduce Anna, a young nurse who looks after him. Harry, fully embracing his rebirth, creates a new personality for himself. "Edward Grey" is born, the man he has always wanted to be: outgoing, bold and fearless. Unfortunately, the doctor abruptly discontinues the clinical trial. Cases of rage and confusion have been reported among other test subjects and the medication is pulled. Anna, taking pity, gives Harry a parting gift: a large supply of the pills, with which he continues his own "trial" at home. Intoxicated by the freedom and power of his new identity as "Edward", Harry slowly surrenders himself to his dark alter ego ... Written by anonymous

crap, stay away
16 December 2014 | by dalanikSee all my reviews

Just started watching.... after 6 and a half minutes I stopped. This is such badly executed movie I am lost for words. You don't need to watch this until the end to figure that out.

The acting is so bad, I wouldn't expect to see such bad acting in amateur movie - i.e. I've seen better student movies. The dialogs are so predictable, so stereotyped...

Do yourself a favor and stay away from this crap. I dunno who gave it such a high rating, this film doesn't deserve to exist, and I don't care that it might have a good idea because the execution is so bad that it is unbelievable. I would give it a minus 10 mark if I could. It is so awful that I decided to spent couple of minutes of my time to write this review so the others wouldn't waste their time on this....
