Product Description

Amazon.ca

American actor Paul Michael Glaser (best known as one half the 1970s TV cop show duo Starsky and Hutch) plays an Ontario psychiatrist involved in experimenting with a radical and controversial therapy to treat phobics-people emotionally crippled by irrational fears. Unfortunately his patients start dying under mysterious circumstances, usually revolving around the very things they fear most. Some of the deaths seem like accidents, but others are clearly murders. Three writers apparently tackled the premise here, including Lew Lehman, Jimmy Sangster and Peter Bellwood (not to mention Gary Sherman and Ronald Shusett who get story credit), but they still never quite make it into more than a so-so suspense film, or manage to produce enough of a story to entirely sustain a feature-length film. --D.K.

Format: VHS Tape
This is a dark movie, addressing the inner primal fear deep in us all. Stars Paul Michael Glaser, in a role you might be a wee bit surprised to see him portray. He plays a doctor on a grant program trying his own "shock method" to cure their "Phobia's". This is a good guy, bad guy movie that slowly sees each one of the doctors patients murdered. In the end he (Glaser)loses his grant program, and the police suspect it's the doctor killing is patients, with each (Glaser) has a aliby. When the doctor is found by his girlfriend, with his last patient, dead. The story begins to unfold. The end is shocking/disturbing. Suspense filled, at times hard to follow, vaguely predicable. I care not to watch it again.

HASH(0xa1d30b10) out of 5 stars JOHN HUSTON, OPUS 33 Dec 17 2011
By Daniel S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
* 1/2 Forgettable film directed by one of the greatest American filmmakers. Only the feminine characters, Alexandra Stewart, Lisa Langlois and Patricia Collins are maybe worth a look if you can find a copy of Phobia (some VHS are still available). The rest looks like a cheap TV movie.
