Director John Huston's only foray into horror is a disappointing effort, crippled by a simpleminded script that will leave most viewers bored after the first 15 minutes. Paul Michael Glaser plays a controversial psychologist who treats convicted murderers by forcing them to confess and

confront their deep-rooted phobias. But someone is using the patients' most basic fears to bring about their deaths. Regrettably, the whole affair is extremely contrived, with a solution even a simpleton could decipher after the credits sequence. Though Huston attempts to spice up things by

juggling the narrative in a fairly creative manner, the film is crippled by its unsatisfying conclusion and Glaser's distinctly weak performance.
