Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Combining audience preoccupations with medicine and terror, director Antony Balch attempts to spoof the usual horror contents here by taking them so far over the edge that they self-destruct. There's a Rolls-Royce with scythes, belligerent bikers and, of course, a burns-scarred mad scientist, plus Robin Askwith (Confessions of a Window Cleaner) as an aspiring rock musician seeking a rest cure. Unfortunately, the result is an almost unwatchable mess, but try to stay the course - the psychological subtext is fascinating.
