review by
Mike Haberfelner

Korppainen (Tapio Kauma) owes his brother Kartsa (Tapio Kauma again) some money, and to pay back, Kartsa forces Korppainen to take part in the testing of a new medication - a medication that soon shows the weirdest of side effects ... like masked and hooded man going after Korppainen to kill him. To find out what's going on, Korppainen meets up with Timo (Viljami Packalen), a young man who took part in the same experiment - but when he finds out Timo might be one of those who tried to kill him, they start to fight and Korppainen ultimately kills Timo. He meets up with another man having taken part in the experiment, Osmo (Jussi Nousiainen), who tells Korppainen the experiment was actually a means of bringing a demon over from another dimension - which Korppainen considers bullshit. But then he runs into the experiment's head (Heikki Kauma) and its chief physician (Ville Väisänen), who try a little too hard to convince him that he's a psychopathic killer, and now Korppainen is hell-bent for some definite answers - and maybe he actually has to go to hell to get them ...


Ok, so the plot of Medicated doesn't make all that much sense and does seem a bit like a bunch of genre clichés thrown together to see what fits - but that's really part of the charm of this movie, it's a wild ride that might sound at the same time a bit non-sensical and familiar, but it pushes on and on, and a tongue-in-cheek approach to the proceedings makes this one pretty much irresistible to all fans of low budget genre fare (like myself).

Totally worth a watch.
