Movie Info

A suicidal patient is placed in a mental hospital for observation. A psychiatrist realizes that the fellow contains telepathic powers with which he's capable of transferring his own fear-filled nightmares into the minds of others. When he directs his ephemeral madness into the minds of the doctors and patients around him, the hospital turns into a nightmarish melee. ~ Rovi

Clever idea, not-so-great execution

Audience Reviews for The Sender

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.
