    While Albert Pyun’s reach consistently exceeded his grasp, one can only admire his passionate ambition and imagine that, given the time and money he lacked throughout his career, he probably would’ve struck gold. Alas, with movies like this — rich in concept but deficient in budget and casting choices — he’s clearly panning for pyrite.

    I admit I was only half-watching this as it’s really not my thing. Sure, Albert Pyun (RIP) had the huevos to shove in a blender a whole slew of ‘80s gimmicks — post-apocalyptic fever, an overbearing new-wave soundtrack, crazes for retro fashion and dancing — in the hopes of a hit but the result is exactly the incoherent slurry you’d expect.

    There’s a film to be made about dissociative identity disorder, how it affects those who live with it and how it remains a controversial issue within psychiatric circles. This? This is not it.
