There's a decent story at its core, but it's not really executed all that interestingly.
Very well done horror/thriller of a suicidal amnesiac in a mental hospital under observation. It turns out he is telepathic and can force his delusions on others.
Lots of suspense, and very well acted. The ending was predictable but satisfying.
Simply one of my favorite movies of all time and has been since I first saw it at age 14 so many years ago. One of the creepiest and eeriest stories, revolving around an absolutely chilling relationship of a mother who believes her son to be divine, THE SENDER assumes a simple idea that a man can transmit his nightmares to others and creates a patient weave of characters and events that keeps the skin crawling, the eyes popping, the brain twisting and the quiet motif of expectation brewing. Tragic, weird, sweet, haunting, original...THE SENDER is simply one of my GEMS.
A solid little entry in the "telepathic horror" subgenre, complete with some effectively chilling moments of hallucinogenic imagery. Harrold plays the leading role with utter conviction, Ivanek manages to be both creepy and sympathetic (and also more than a little Matt Damon-ish), and Knight and Freeman lend credible support to the proceedings. THE SENDER is quite well directed by Christian, with some interesting staging throughout; how he could go on to helm the utterly incomprehensible mess that is BATTLEFIELD EARTH is head-scratching. Also of note is Trevor Jones' score, which captures a lyrical-yet-unsettling tone. The movie bogs down significantly as it heads towards its climax instead of ramping up, which is a little disappointing, but up until that point, THE SENDER does fairly well what it sets out to do.
A genuinely creepy horror flick. The mental patients are especially creepy. The whole telepathic story is good, although it starts out slow and confusing. I liked this one.
TV MOVIE. Entertaining sci fi thriller about a man who transfers his fears to the minds of others. I love that it was all done in camera without the use of digital poo effects.
tension builds up slowly to become a film that makes the audience think.
Well-made and pretty original back then. Good cast, nice setting, spooky showdown. Yep, can't praise this enough.
Stephen King-esque thriller about a suicidal man whose dreams are transformed into reality. Slow moving but nicely shot and featuring the film debut of Zelijko Ivanek (who was great on 24 as Andre Drazen).
20 minutes of this film was more then enough. A poor 80s film! April 22, 2010
