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.
