When Doctor Mordley (P.J. Ochlan) arrives at Doc Lauren Anderson's (Jo Castleton) clinic for all kinds of hopeless cases to test his new cure-all Cyberon, she is more than sceptical, and his enthusiasm for the drug doesn't convince her otherwise - even though she feels drawn to the man and they eventually become romantically involved. Then George (Oliver Bradshaw), one of her patients Cyberon was tested on, dies, and even though his death is declared a heart failure that has nothing to do with Cyberon, Lauren's sceptisism only grows. Together with her roommate Ray (David Roeciffe), Lauren finds out that Cyberon is actually some kind of living organism feeding from those it's injected into, but when she wants to confront Mordley with this fact, she finds him injecting Cyberon into himself - and now that she's found out, Mordley injects it into her as well ...

With Cyberon running through her body, Lauren feels she has become a better person, she feels fitter, is able to remember more, memorize better, needs less sleep, less food - in short it seems to have improved her. Her patients the Cyberon was tested on seem to be much better as well. Then though George, Lauren's deceased patient, comes back from the dead to warn her, and he opens her eyes to the aliens that are behind Cyberon to take over humankind. Lauren goes off Cyberon.

Lauren tries to open Mordley's eyes to the dangers of Cyberon, as he was no more aware of the alien threat behind the drug than her. He believes her, too, but is way too addicted to the stuff to really do anything about it. Almost against his will, he tries to stop her from abandoning the Cyberon experiments in her clinic, but when he threatens her, she stabs and kills him - to give herself up to the police almost immediately afterwards. But then at the police station, Mordley shows up alive and unharmed, just to have all charges against Lauren dropped. Then he disappears for good ... and it seems he had just enough humanity left in him to care for Lauren and put her out of harm's way.

The next day, without Cyberon, Lauren's patients are back to being hopeless cases ...

 

The production house BBV has become known for its many Doctor Who spin-off movies, but this one is none of the sort. Sure, the Cyberons in their alien form look quite a bit like Doctor Who's Cybermen, only without the ears, and the names sound similar of course, but that's about as far as similarities go, as the Cyberons differ vastly in origin, character and modus operandi from their more prominent counterparts, and if they looked a bit different, nobody would have found any similarities ...

This all of course is saying nothing about Cyberon the film itself - which is an interesting medical drama/science fiction flick, a film that probably could have done with a bit more action and a more inventive directorial effort, but on the other hand, it's based on a very original concept and features nicely fleshed out characters to carry it.

No genre classic most certainly, but a very interesting movie nevertheless.
