Dr Lupesky's (Pierre DeVeaux) research is nothing more than groundbreaking, he's on the verge of developing a drug to separate the sould from the body and let it take over someone else's mind. Unfortunately, developing this drug is a process of trial and error, and the error part of it has cost several (unwilling) test subjects their lives, which is why Dr Simpson (Ginny Dunlevy), head of the local college, has to fire him, and to avoid controversy, Lupesky leaves for Europe to do some research.

A few months later, a series of weird disappearances of young women is shattering the area, and Kim Castle (Jamie Kinser), small fry reporter for a local newspaper, decides to investigate - and is somewhat shocked that Dr Lupesky has moved back to the neighbourhood again. But then again she figures it might make a good story to involve him with said disappearances. However, while she thinks she has grown wise on Lubesky he has in fact grown wise on her, as it's of course him and his assistants (Bob Cederberg, Louise Millmann) who have kidnapped all these young women and killed them in his experiments. And Kim is a young woman as well, so a perfect guinea pig ...

 

Even if The Soultangler was actually shot on 16mm, it was edited on video, which gives it that genuine shot-on-video look so characteristic to micro budget horror from the mid to late 80s - and everything else falls into place as well: The story is extremely far-fetched, doesn't always click, but is wild enough to keep one entertained, the direction's functional mostly but manage to focus on the macabre and gore, and the gore scenes might not be much more advanced than in early Herschell Gordon Lewis movies, but they're explicit enough to truly shock. And all of this is giving the film a cheap and trashy feel that might be nothing for mainstream crowds, but the connoisseur will truly enjoy it no doubt.
