Desiree | Missouri, USA | 02/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film is original, very creative, and absorbing. It has a very well done surreal creepy atmosphere. It's one of those movies that pulls you in and keeps you there, and the ending has a nice twist too.
What a treat to see this finally out on dvd!
If you like the best of the eighties films, don't miss this one."
Finally On DVD !!!

"One of my favorite movies!! I have the VHS version of this haunting movie. From time to time I would check to see if it would release on DVD, but all I pulled up was a similar named movie: "The Sender"...which is a science fiction action thriller with a vague plot idea..But now here it is,.. The origional and best - The Sender!...This is about a young man that at the very start, is attemting suicide...Is he psychotic or is somthing else going on in his tortured brain? You see, he has the psychic ablity to "Send" or transfer his Dreams or nightmares to others, and this always takes a toll on him physically and mentally...A scene, when he is in a Psycatric ward, he is subjected to Shock Treatment in a scene that will shock you to,.. and not soon forgotten, and remember this was relesed before C.G.I. dominated our movie viewing. The stereo sound track is the VHS version it almost blots out some of the dialouge...But this release got a beautiful transfer in sound and image. This movie uses strong imagery, atmosphere and mood,..instead of " 1980's type of Gore"...but dont be fooled this one will stay with you long after you see it..I guarantee..youll press "The Reply Button" after your first view this wounderfull movie experience!"
Under appreciated thriller

"Released in 1982, this film features effective performances and does a good job with creating creepy imagery. The story centers around a young man (Zeljko Ivanek) who becomes commited to a state run mental institution in order to cure his amnesia. Kathryn Harrold is the doctor who attempts to aid him. The catch is he can project his dreams to the concious world. Reality and dream reality run amok for Harrold in her quest to cure the young man. If you like intelligent thrillers, this is a movie to be viewed. Horror fans take note: this film does feature some gore, a prerequisite beheading, and enough chills to deliver the goods."
