Struck by sudden blindness, ad executive Jonathon Ratcliff (Joseph Bottoms, The Black Hole, Crime and Passion, The Dove) is frustrated when doctors can find nothing wrong with him. With the aid of his girlfriend (Kirstie Alley, Cheers, Look Who’s Talking), he consults a top eye doctor (Keir Dullea, 2001: A Space Odyssey, David and Lisa) who fits him with an experimental device allowing him to see with the aid of a computer interface and brain electrodes. Meanwhile, a taxi driver is taking young women up to their apartments, sedating them, and performing a little fatal amateur surgery. Their paths inevitably converge as the serial killer starts cutting too close to home.
From cult director Nico Mastorakis (Island of Death) comes a sexy, sleek thriller co-starring Lana Clarkson (Haunting of Morella, Barbarian Queen), James Daughton (Malibu Beach, Animal House), Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Wicked Lady), and Valeria Golino (Rain Man), plus a chilling score by Stanley Myers (The Deer Hunter, Conduct Unbecoming, Cold Heaven) with songs by John Kongos. Scorpion Releasing proudly presents this cult classic from a brand new 4k scan of the original director’s cut, supervised by the director.
