An evil, unethical psychiatrist uses hypnotism and drugs to play complicated games with his patients in a sick series of vengeful maneuvers. Stephen Lang brings the scary story to life in a competent, confident production containing no special effects and very little dramatization. His characters differ subtly from each other in modulation and dialect, save for a Hispanic nurse and an alien-chasing housepainter. Lang's portrayal of these two is so convincing and entertaining that we wonder what he might have done with some of the other, more conventional characters. No matter. The creepy, matter-of-fact delivery enhances Koontz's chillingly believable plot. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
