"I guess the story here is pretty fair: A teacher at a boy's boarding school is someone other than who he appears to be, and when someone finds out, he must protect himself using any means possible, including murder.
The DVD though, seems to be the real horror here. There are missing bits, dialog and action jumps, and obviously some scenes have been cut, and not particularly well. Televista/Substance/etc. quality runs from "not bad" to "really bad" and this one, unfortunately, falls into the latter category. There are times when it looks quite good & then action & dialog jump ahead with missing words and actions that are very frustrating. Not recommended...I would like to see this film with a proper transfer, though. 2 out of 10."
