Movie Info

Following the death of a fellow scientist accused of being a communist spy, Dr. Henry Longman (Dirk Bogarde) works to prove that his colleague had been brainwashed. To do so, Longman subjects himself to experiments in a sensory deprivation tank. This starts to take a heavy toll on his mental health; in particular, it alienates him from his wife. Additionally, his scientific credibility suffers and with it the chances for discovering the truth about his colleague.

Critic Reviews for The Mind Benders

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • ...a strange little film that explores what was then a trendy topic (the effects of sensory deprivation on the mind, as presented in a popular novel of the day) in a way that's both disturbing and memorable.

    October 19, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • An influential but forgettable and slow-moving sci-fi thriller with an agreeable espionage twist over a controversial secret mind-control experiment.
