Genre specialist John Carl Buechler offers this savage twist on the classic Robert Louis Stevenson tale by tracing the dark journey of a brilliant doctor who is gradually transformed into a sinister, murderous creature. Dr. Jekyll (Tony Todd) has successfully cured a higher primate of a dire heart condition, but could this treatment prove successful on humans as well? Upon testing the serum on himself, Dr. Jekyll becomes a horrifying and primal beast that goes by the name Mr. Hyde. As Dr. Jekyll descends into a paranoid state of schizophrenia, he fails to see that Mr. Hyde is simply a malevolent manifestation of his own darkest instincts. Tracy Scroggins and Vernon G. Wells co-star.
