Movie Info

An experimental drug said to cure various forms of mental illness but deemed too dangerous for public consumption is being primed for release into the public by money-minded pharmacists, and it's up to the doctor who created the drug over twenty-years ago to escape the mental institution and halt distribution in directors Johannes Roberts and James Eaves' cautionary psychological horror film. When Dr. Max Warick tested his promising drug on a troubled group of test subjects a generation ago, the seemingly miraculous affect that it had on some patients was tragically offset by the deadly affects that the experiment had on the control group who, despite receiving no drugs at all, all suffered excruciating deaths. Though the experiments were immediatey halted at the time, a contemporary group of optimistic medical experts believe the drug is now safe to release to the increasingly afflicted general public. Nothing has changed over the course of two decades though, and if the once-prominent doctor can't escape from the padded walls that bind him the entire population may be driven to madness by a drug with devastating side effects.

When the audio cut out about 10 minutes before the end of the movie, I didn't know if that was the movie being stylish or if there was a problem with the DVD. Then I realized I didn't even care.
