"The film itself runs a scant minute and sixteen seconds, but let me tell ya, every sinister second is dripping with atmosphere! The lab set looks fantastic, and is filled with all manner of gizmos and doo-dads that look era accurate

to my admittedly untrained putrid peepers.

Duffy (who has been in loads o’ stuff, but were going to go with the 2012 remake of Bill Lustig’s Maniac here) is solid

as the lead and her plight is conveyed with conviction, and Lee herself makes a cameo as well, but again my lips are sealed there, boils n’ ghouls."
