Movie Info

This is a crazy horror-film spoof in which the enthusiastic leads provide laughs just by the strength of their characterizations alone -- and because they are obviously having fun. Oliver Reed is Dr. Heckyl whose lumpy face is so ugly it has kept women away in droves. He works at a podiatrist's clinic and one day attempts suicide by quaffing a whole bottle of a weight-loss elixir. The result? Dr. Heckyl becomes Mr. Hype, the suave ladies man. The only problem is that Mr. Hype is evil incarnate, his urge to kill is greater than any other urge, and so he remains as virginal as ever as he leaves a trail of victims behind. When he goes after the woman he has loved as Dr. Heckyl, serious confusion is in store -- she prefers the good-hearted beast over the rotten charmer.

(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Entertaining and darkly funny.


I never Thought I would ever use the term" has no redeeming value" until now. I had to force myself to watch this 1980's "stinker" all the way to the end. I always look for the campy or zircon in the ruff, but this movie was just plain painful.
