Scientist Doctor Roth (Doug Collins) gets a gouvernment grant to create a mind-reading machine that he intends to use for enviromental problems (?) - but the gouvernment of course has more sinister aspirations. Without Roth's knowledge, they hack into the computer at the core of his brain machine, ready to take it over at any time ... and this time comes exactly when Roth's four test persons (James Best, Gerald McRaney, Marcus J.Grapes, Ann Latham) and one of his assistants (Barbara Burgess) are locked inside a sealed off lab in an experiment to encounter their deepest fears. Now hwat was supposed to be an intense experiment anyways goes completely over the top, and violence, suicide and murder ensue, and in the ned, the walls even start to move towards each other to squash the survivors, for no apparent reason. Roth manages to get them out anyhow, but alas too late, the gouvernment has already gathered enough information on the brain machine, and now everyoneinvolved with the program who's considered expendable (including Roth) is simply eliminated ...


Weird and not very successful blend of espionage thriller, psychodrama and science fiction, that at times attempts to be intelligent ... but to disastrous results, since neither the film's plot as a whole nor its underlying concept have been properly thought through, and thus the audience is actually confronted with bits and pieces that seem to come from everywhere but make little sense when put next to each other. Rather bad, and not even so bad it's funny ....
