Movie Reviews

Oktober Fest
Harry Widoff | Forest Hills, New York | 01/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unfortunately this is a 2 hour condensed version of the 4 hours series - he whole series could have been put on a CD.

Originally aired on some PBS stations around the country. A psychological/mystical thriller. The lead character gains a link with comatose test subjects after intentionally being given the not yet realsed drug.
The drug was intended to bring patients out of a coma. Failing to do that other therapeuic uses are planned.
The drug has unexpected effects, of which the drug company was warned and ignored after considered to far-fetched.

Just like other PBS/BBC series have become films - expect it to happen with this.

"This is a sci-fi movie which I usually do not like. An interesting premise, a new unapproved drug tested on an innocent bystander by a huge drug corporation. I liked it but thought that the editing was not very smooth, obviously a foreign production. I had to watch it about three times before I caught all the jumps, which had at first viewing seemed to not make sense. I bought it to see Stephen Tompkinson's performance which was good in some places and seemed melodramatic in other places. Of course, the story of traveling back and forth between the living and the dead made it unbelievable. The director was also the writer and this was his first effort at directing which probably accounts for some of this."
