This tricky stuff requires the cinematic sleight-of-hand of a Hitchcock. Dahl doesn't quite fill the bill.
A B-grade murder mystery with a sci-fi twist.
The plot involves the presence of brain fluid -- no small irony, since the makers of this goof could have used some themselves, if only to avoid concocting a movie riddled with so many ridiculous coincidences and downright stupid characters.
Is that what happens to a gifted indie helmer when he gets 20 million for a schlocky movie that, contrary to the title, is utterly forgettable due to a dull, wholesome heroine (miscast Fiorentino), who may be Dahl's penance for his earlier, gutsier femmes
A diverting, very well-made thriller. Far-fetched, but everyone except the most captious sticklers for logic will likely exit satisfied.
A tight, tense, taut thriller with a killer-sting in it's tail
Very disappointing thriller
Surprisingly effective thriller. Each time he takes the brain juice, another part of the msytery unravels.
Really bad. I get where this film was going, and I appreciate the psychological aspect, but it just ends up being clumsy and stupid. Not worth seeing.
incorrectly named so called thriller, the blame lies in the script not the leads.
Good chilling, crackpot thriller involves several transfers of brain fluid between dead and living people but no credible smarts of its own.
