Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Ulli Lommel graduated from playing twitchers and fruitcakes in Fassbinder movies by directing Tenderness of the Wolves, a touching account of a gay paedophile butcher. He then decamped to Hollywood to essay a career pitched somewhere between Dennis Hopper and Paul Morrissey. Mostly he made no-budget schlock, like this ludicrously straightfaced 'thriller' about brainwave transplants. A black hole for fading stars in which Dr Curtis kindly operates on the heroine (Love) who is in a coma after suffering a traumatic blow to the brain. The donor is a murder victim, unexpectedly supplying not only motor reflexes but memories, so that the poor recipient is soon being stalked herself.
