  • 1h 25m

Michael Tucker is programmed into killing his parents by genetic surgeon Dr Archer Howell and is incarcerated in a psychiatric institution for the crime. Years later Michael and friends travel to an isolated island where Howell now runs Trans Cranial Applications, experimenting on humans and turning them into mutant killing machines.

Michael must have revenge on Howell for the death of his parents and also stop him for the sake of mankind…

David Blyth’s splatterfest marked the first of many horrors funded by the NZ Film Commission. It was also the first local showcase of the smoothly-flowing Steadicam camera.
