Directed with a remarkably mature visual sense by Weeks at the age of twenty-two (his first feature), this Amicus adaptation of Stevenson's Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - with Lee giving a low-key performance in the lead - suffers from its prosaic fidelity to its source, as well as from a rather forced 'moral' parallel between Victorian and contemporary drug cultures. Clearly made on a shoestring, it was apparently started in an abortive 3-D process that eventually had to be abandoned.
