Reviews
Mine: Very well done thriller.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Research scientists Walken and Fletcher perfect a sensory experience device--in the form of a headset--with explosive potential. Entertainingly old-fashioned ``mad scientist'' type story brought up to date, though it's best not to examine story too closely. Fletcher gives film's standout performance, but Wood, in her last film (she died during production in 1981) has a basically thankless role. Sure to lose most of its impact on TV, since Trumbull's state-of-the-art visual effects were designed for 70mm Super Panavision.
