Bottoms becomes traumatically blind after witnessing his object of desire with another man, and so has a computer embedded in his brain. The resulting Dayglo vision turns the world into one huge video game inside his head; but the picture quality isn't good enough to enable him to see the face of the killer who is carving up the women of Athens with a scalpel. Unfortunately not enough is made of this blurring of the interface between man and machine; and the key concept of voyeurism is kept strictly on the exploitative level. The rest of the film (shot in Greece) is largely composed of women in slashed blouses or wet bikinis undergoing humiliation. It needs the kind of nasty thoughtfulness of a De Palma behind it; but it just comes out a Babycham picture in a Moet bottle. CPea.
